Well that gives some hope then. I'm trying to keep my GPU clocks in 13mhz hops as I read that was what it throttles at, figured it made sense to go up in hops of 13 (or maybe it doesn't matter all?). Once I get the thermals back under 50c, I'll see what I can get for stability.

That way if you get the result you are looking for you can easy put an epoxy coat on them and press.
Again, just a 'user' here and not an engineer or even remotely skilled at the same level you guys are so feel free to open fire if it is a dumb idea.
Problem is the recommended limit is 1/3 of the resistor max, that is why people are trying stuff that has limited conductivity. bridging with a piece of copper or aluminum would lower it way to much and the cards would fault into its 135(?)Mhz safe mode. Some people/person had success with using a single hair of copper wire from a phone line pair or something, but that is pretty unique application and was still permanent.
I was thinking about trying to craft tension clips on some 10ohm SMDs to try the IC parallel route but I don't have anywhere near the soldering ability for that. shunting with LM still comes out as the best of what has been tested (so far).Edited by Tinman12 - 4/23/17 at 4:50pm
