At least it's kind of a nice drive over the mountains. Breaks up that long, straight I5 run.

What am I working on?

.....hmmm...spent most of the day at work (sucks to be on call all week)...then filled up the dewars......played a little Lego Starwars Wii (my 6 year old needs a partner, you know)....now helping the wife around the house until dinner....have the kids read some books......then when everybody goes to bed I'll try to get some single card 3870 golds with LN2 before trying out the new 5970 from Eek that arrived yesterday. Quadfire time. Go to bed at about 2-3:00, get up at 6:00 and repeat. Typical day.

As far as volt mods go, I'm waiting for some tips to arrive before trying out my new digital temp controlled Weller.

I got an artifacting 8800GT for 20$ (well in a trade for an accelero).. baked it and managed to fix it.

So today I put it under the soldering iron, did the full vMEM, vGPU, vMeasure and even OCP (reference design). Got it to run 900 mhz (the highest I tried ), but most important 1.51v load, before I went to play poker.

20 dollars and 1.5 hours later I come back form poker having lost and decided to hit up the vMem before I try to hit 1000mhz. Except I didn't leave any open spots near the trimmers to measure the resistance coming from the trimmer.

So I crank it the same way as the vGPU to turn up the resistanct and... CRACK. Computer won't post. I take out the card, can't see anything out of the norm so I sniff around. It smells singed near the bottom of the back of the card, enar the 16v caps, inductors and moffsets so I replace one inductors, 4 caps, and and a 1R0 choke. Still nothing so now I'm at a loss.

It's a shame this baby had potential to break 1000mhz and who knows on the ram since they were hynix. It could still be salvaged but who knows. It was my sexiest looking volt mod too, all decked out with a dipper and everything, I'll post pics in the volt mod gallery for those interested

Nice! A Weller never disappoint's *insert scottish accent* "That'lll dew.."

Good luck on your Qfire runs too! You using more than 1x PSU for that, btw..?

Where are your HWbot submission?




Thinking of forgetting the OCP mod on the 6600GT. I mean, I can run the card at 1.8v. Shouldn't that be plenty? My 650Mhz limit is with 1.55v. My problem most likely is capacitance and cooling. Now if I can get my lazy butt to move the card to my loop. When I designed my loop I wasn't really thinking of removing GPUs from it all the time. Didn't realize the addictive power of a soldering iron.

Yeah that chip is complicated indeed. I agree whole heartedly about the addictiveness of this hobby, but you got to love the raw power

@Doc, you think maybe, if I am worthy, I could be added to the list, please sir

do a hwbot run in vantage or something else and try to score some points for the hwbot cause and post your corresponding clocks/voltages and you are in, you might have a better chance with benching with one card since the multiplecard bracket also counts 3-way sli

oh yea join the overclock.net hwbot team too before your runs on hwbot.org

hop on over to lowes/homedepot, pick up:

teflon tape for 1$
2x barbs (whatever your ID is) w/ g1/4 threads for 5-6$
2x G/14 thread plugs/caps 5$
2x tubing connectors (i.e.3/8 to 3/8, 1/2 to 1/2) 5%

(the price is well worth the hassle of constatly draining and bleeding a loop)

so whenever you work on your GPUs instead of draining and bleeding your loop everytime, once you disconnect a GPU block put a plug in (made of the of barb and the screw on cap) one for each side. if you decide you want to run without GPU cooling for a while use the 3/8 to 3/8 converters or whatever your ID is and a small piece of tubing and have a properly size piece to connect the two ends that would go into your blocks

kapish.. pics would be easier ot explain
