Who said the 8600GT sucks? [56k Warning] - Page 3

post #21 of 93
i saw those scores of 9000 and 12000 and thought it was 3dmark06 for a second. nice scores nonetheless. that is quite an improvement over your stock scores.

Yeah I saw your 8600GT thread. That is what inspired me to Vmod mine, .

I'm using a Zalman VF900CU, my temps stay below 70C.

you should be able to do more to the high low to mid 7000 range with your 1950.



as far sa the 8600 just nvidia would allow volt changes without modding. one reason I think I am going to stay with ati for now. but still not bad scores for a mid range card that cost that little.

Switched from the drivers that came with 8600GT CD to 158.22, and noticed a huge performance increase !

And in 3dmark05...

Added some extra Zalman blue Ramsinks I had left over (8600GT only has 4 Ram ICs) to the HOT voltage regulators on the card, and upped the Vgpu to 1.65V .

Inching my way to 7k in 3dmark06!

Yes it is a pencil mod.

eVGA's warranty allows overclocking and removing the stock cooling, BUT does not allow physical modifications to the card (Vmods). So as long as you don't do a Vmod like I did (you will still be able to overclock like crazy and reach about 5.2k-5.5k+ in 3dmark06, I was easily able to without any Vmods), then you won't have to worry about violating the warranty.

I'm not going to be doing eVGA's step-up program. If I decide that I need a better card, like if I can't run new DX10 games with medium settings 1280x1024 with this card, then I will just sell it for cheap and purchase whatever is in my budget at the time period.

Depends...
Does your PCB match the Inno3D 8600GT or Palit 8600GT, in this review?
If so, you can perform the Vmod that matches your MSI 8600GT's PCB.

My eVGA 8600GT has the same PCB as the Inno3d 8600GT, so I did the Inno3d 8600GT Vmod on my card.
