Before (120% power limit, +170 core, +500 VRAM), Vcore bouncing between 0.981v and 1.031v with clock speed between 1965MHz and 2025MHz.



After (same OC settings as above), Vcore stable at 1.062v and clock speed stable at 2062MHz.

Nice results. I wish I would have known about this easy power limit mod when I was installing the EK block on my card. Now I really don't feel like going through the hassle of draining the loop to disconnect it and do the mod.

Nice man! Finally someone brave nuff biggrin.gif

Well to be honest, you dont even need to use soldering. The only thing you really need is Coollaboratory Liquid Ultra/pro paste.
Look here :

So, basically what you did is ....short these 3 resistors yeah?

Thats the Nvidia branded bios. the 01 bios is the one used for all the founders. They will just change the id. But the bios is the same.


Every founder including Nvidia. 86.04.17.00.01

Another bios that was only on Nvidia FE cards "some of them" 86.04.11.00.0C

Evga FE 1080.

Both my cards do 2200mhz, both with this bios smile.gif

God... STOP USING FURMARK.

Ya hear? EVERYONE. It's not 2006, we're not testing GTX 280's.... Stop using Furmark.

Power limit mod-very easy, use CLP/U. You can remove it easy and RMA if needed! smile.gif

The one you're looking at is the direct from Nvidia model, either from teh Nvidia store or at Best Buy.

Yeah, that's a ton of work, I wouldn't do that, either. I have an EVGA CLC installed on mine, so removing that took a whopping four screws lol, and then the 9000 tiny screws holding the backplate and heatspreader on biggrin.gif

Well, not soldering actually requires having CLU laying around, which I do not lol. I actually wanted to completely remove them, but my soldering iron tip isn't small enough and after trying with an air reflow tool for like 10 minutes I just said screw it and just soldered the wire lol.

And yes, it is just the three resistors, RS1, RS2, and RS3 smile.gif

I'll be trying this today.

Off to get a Kraken G10 I guess. I just hope I can fit it on with the FE's stock VRM/RAM cooling solution.

Can anyone with an FE with an AIO tell me if the GPU die is flush with the stock VRM/RAM plate? If not I doubt the AIO will fit within the cutout for the die.

Any takers?
