I am just happy with a 150% of the stock speed for relatively little work.
Itâ€™s also out of my league, I guess I could learn or practice on another card first, I have a really steady hand... I surpised myself by doing the basic mod on this card. The next problem is that I don't have the tools .
I know this guy who's been working with electrical components all of his life, TV screens, VCR's, DVD's, sound systems, even pc's. I'm starting to wonder if I should give him a call and offer him a few bucks to do the mod for me. At least change the 1 resistor and remove the other two. I could then choose the 1.6v or the 1.7 GPU volt, I know that this part of the mod is identical to the 1.3/1.4/1.5/1.55 mod.
As far as RMA.... if he does a clean enough job, the resistors involved are so small do you think EVGA would even notice? has any one RMA'd a modified card like this before?
