The OCN Volt Mod Squad | HWbot's Finest | The Official Club - Page 74

post #731 of 1336
A quick question for you guys.

So since I volt modded the 9800gtx+'s when they are folding or running occt or something big they get a ever so slight sound. Guess it would be kind of like a capacitor wheez or whatever it is. Just ever so slight though, allmost wouldnt be able to tell if it wasnt your system.

Does this sound like something I should do a cap job for or is it no big deal. Its not annoying or anything just wondering if running at 1.45vgpu is putting it at its limit and it needs a little extra help to regulate the voltage or whatever. (sorry I dont know to much indepth about this stuff, mechanic by trade)

I will soon join you with a Volt modded Commando, just need to buy some parts and a new "small" solder iron.

Nice club

Is it a whine or a static sound?

If the card is whinnying it's most likely the caps making noise. If you hear a static sound, that's the GPU screaming. My reference 96GTs have a really load static sound. They also interfere with my headphones if the cards are folding. Emitting a high pitched noise into the speakers.

Could also be the inductors that are whining when getting hot. My 8800GT did that as well, or the caps could also emit a high pitch. Take a piece of tubing to your ear and and probe around the card when it does it to see where it is coming from.

@Kriz-cant wait for you to join the leagues, be careful though it is very addictive and costly

Both my unmodded 4890 Toxic's often whined under heavy load, such as benchmarks. And I somtimes hear my 5870 making some noise to, always when loading Red Vally cpu test in 06.

Thanks, think I'm gonna try volt mod my 9500GT in before I move onto the Commando. My Grandpa and two uncles are good solders, and I know a guy at a TV/radio shop,

if you have any dead PCBs lying around start practicing to get the hang of it. It's really a helpful skill especially if you want to push your hardware to its limits, even more so if you are an extreme cooler like yourself...

keep us posted on your volt modding and hwbot endeavors. More hwbot points for OCN along with more volt mod squad members is a win for everyone..

just a little update, got all 3 of my 8800gtx's on my loop after some serious rearranging and time spent trouble shooting and bleeding. GPU-Z notices all 3 cards and all their voltmods work fine. The only problem is I can;t use 3-way SLI at the moment. SO in the meantime I'm just doing normal SLI, it's funny that it wont even show my other 8800GTX as an option for dedicated physx.

I'm not sure what the problem is im going to try to fold on it tomorrow I think to if that 3rd card even works, it's voltages seem fine so who knows.

In the meantime I'm running some benchys with 2x SLI to get us some more points. So far I overlcoked from my previous high of 630mhz core to 700 core at 1.45v idle (1.39 load.. damn droop) which should hopefully take the vantage 1st since I already had 2nd place for SLI @ 630mhz, these cards have hynix chips and are amazing!

will post pics soon

Smart Idea! I don't have any dead hardware myself, but I think my friend might have a M-ATX MoBo that is dead.

Thanks +1

thanks!, hope it helps, I never really practice that much and now I have a stack of 5 or 6 8800 series cards that are all toast, some due to poor soldering, some to too much voltages etc.. Its a fun habit to get into and very addictive but it can have its cons.. and expenses

even something like an old router, modem, wireless card etc should have a decent amount of small SMRs to practice on. Motherboard volt mods seem to be a little easier just judging from the tutorials I see.

On another note I wish I had the DICE chiller up and running again because I can't get these 8800GTX's up past 720mhz without an absurd amount of artifacts. I got first in vantage on hwbot my first run but I want to get a better 1st place score than +20 points. But once I find my max clocks I'll reboot from 4.2ghz to around 4.5-4.6 for some extra pointage!

edit: also kris if you haven't purchased a DMM (digital multi meter) yet now would be the time

Ohh, sorry to hear that. But if you don't try we will never succeed anyway.

Good point, I actually have a broken router laying around. Think I'm going to dig it up.

DICE Chillers seems like a lot of fun, I had my radiator out of the window when there was -36c here..used Car anti-freeze coolant

Working for points at the Bot is fun! Keep it up man

My uncle works as an electrician, so he could lend me one if I wanted.
