btw: still havnt tried increasing mem voltage, but have checked for continuety between the vmem mod pin and the end of my 3 pin connector, so its making good contact
I've had bad luck with killing Hynix mem over 2.1v.

wow, thanks, really that sensitive? guess its lucky i checked before i increased it at all, its default is 2.02, i would have thought it would be safe even up to 2.2+

rep+ for likely saving some good hynix ram

Woot got some more points tonight/morning.

Got both the 9800gtx+'s in sli on my i7 rig, got a bronze in vantage and a star in 06. Gained about 5 or so points also. Im missing out on the next highest step by a few hundred in each so if I get a good benching OS and different drivers on it I think I can move up a step or two.

@ Maxx which drivers you running now..? I use 180.06's with nvhardpage for benching 3D... but I have noticed that the 195's were boosting SM3.0 scores some...just depends on what your gonna bench.

Have you tried going into msconfig and selecting diagnostic startup for benches? Also set your resolution for your monitor to its lowest setting and pick a solid color for your desktop instead of a picture. I pick white when Im benching cuz it just seems like it would be cold I know its not really but I just like it

I most for 3D benching.....http://www.nvhardpage.com/

Just stay away from mipmap tweaking as that is illegal per HWbot. Make sure all performance setting are set and optimizations are turned on. Possitive LOD helps a lot to, mostly in 3D06. Set priority to a high level, kill explorer and any other processes you can, close task manager and bench away.

wow, benching is serious business :-P

more seriously, most of you guys do not wire an easy access measure point up for vmem, is there a reason for this? or do you just find its easy enough to access as it is? because i have my molex 4 pin port at the top of my card with 2 holes spare, so wondering whether i should just go ahead and wire it to a vmem measure point

Thanks guys for the input. My main OS the one Im running now has the cuda drivers so I can fold on them. Think its 190 or something. Ive got a couple of extra hdd's so I may throw a couple of OS's on there and see how much I can get out of them. May try a vista 32 bit and thin down a w7 as much as I can. Got some good info from my other thread I had going as well.

Bill I like to wire up a read point for whatever I volt mod, it makes it much easier then trying to poke around on a card while its running.

I would go ahead and solder on a measuring point for your mem as well. I am used to keeping my hand steady and have good access to my hardware with my tech station where soldering one on isnt a must. Though I probably should cuz one slip of the hand and it will short something out.
