Well, I just got my rig built back up. I completed the pcie mod and its working so far.
I did ruin the tiny resistor from the board, but I had some old 1.5gb hdd's laying around, so I found another 100ohm it needed, but it's twice as big lol. Talk about hard work..
I'm very proud of myself on this one.
p.s. Sorry about the picture quality.
Awesome job! Way to MacGyver it with the big honking resistor. That mod is by far the most difficult thing I've done on a computer to date.
Looking forward to some results.
Which reminds me, I haven't posted my i7 920 post mod results here yet.
Way to go C0 chip!

Here's my highest unvalidated baseclock with a screenshot (couldn't get a screenie of the 250X21):
High PCIE frequencies mess with my network drivers..
