Question about 8800GT volt mod

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Hi guys,

I have a question regarding to voltmodding the 8800GT.
I have done some searching and found 2 different methods for modding this GPU. You can either hardmod it, or you can mod the bios.

When hardmodding, the voltage will go to 1,3V.
(When following this tutorial that is:
http://iax-tech.com/video/8800gt/8800gt02.htm)
But when experimenting a little bit with Nibitor, I found out that you can also set it from there to 1,3V.
So will there be any difference? Is the hardmod more stable?
It would seem that the biosmod is safer because you can increase the voltage little by little.

So what do you guys think?

I think there is a max voltage you can set through Nibitor, and I don't think it's 1.3v. I think it was 1.1v max with it.

Affirmative. For anything above 1.1v you will need to do the hard mod. Lemme see if I can dig up the solder-less vmod.

Well it would seem you can set a higher voltage by doing the following:
Open your bios in Nibitor, then go to Tools and click on Voltage Table Editor.

From there you can set higher voltages than 1,1V
Or won't that work?
Because I read on this forum (or another one not sure) that someone also set his voltage from there to 1,2V and he had a small noticable difference.

Hard modding is the only way to get it above 1.1.........

Ive read up on it a bit, it says you can do it via nibitor, but if you put a volt monitor to the card its still 1.1.....

Its a tad bit extreme for my likings tho... I did the nibitor mod with my single a while back and it didnt help much... Havent done it with the sli setup.. 700/1700/1000 on 2 is just fine by me

Alright. Thanks for the replies
Guess I'll stick to the bios voltmod for a while.
