maybe i was wrong

i decided to see how far i could push the invidual cards so i took my newer one out and managed to get max 1000/1000 on the old one and the new one couldn't even do that. epic fail.

with a 530w and volt mod i kinda expected more =/

Okay so I encountered an issue today - have my PC benched at the moment because my case is still being painted (car shop has had a lot of accidents coming in, so they haven't had time to paint my case).

I noticed after about 2 hours of Minecraft that my desk and my arm were rather warm. And wow, the heat pumping from those power regulation capacitors. Luckily being solid caps they can do 5,000 hours at 105c and they weren't 105c because I could touch them. But just watch it guys, its not just your GPU temperature you need to look out for, feel your memory heatsinks and other components. If you can't touch them, you have a problem.

I can suggest you try a few more lines. I drew until I noticed a color change, 15-17 strokes. Was only going to do 10 but I thought I might've gotten my strokes off center. Could explain my amazing clocks, when I'm putting my case mod back together at my mates' house I'm going to check my core voltage with a multimeter.

let me know the results buddy

when i did it i held the pencil flat to cover the entire width of the resistor and moved up and down 15 times. on the right side theres a componant sticking out so you have to do it from the left side (the opposite end to the output ports)

wooo =]

ok guys just a tip, if you go into bios and you're on a 1090t proc, just check to make sure its not running at 1.475v stock =/

tuned it down to 1.4 and now 1000/1000 is stable (benched heaven and 3dmark11 in 1 run so far) ;D

EDIT: just thought i'd add, i used a 4b pencil and drew 5 up and down strokes. still only got those heatsinks on the 2 exposed ram modules and the stock fan is set to 100% all the time.

i didn't stick to the centre of the resistor, i slid the pencil across each stroke so the whole thing went grey.

Hello everyone I'm new and I want to do the "pencil mod" on my asus eah5670but I just can not figure out where to start ... for example, which pins I have to scratch?
thanks

Don't worry, the Asus 5670 volt mod thread is only for the "pros" to understand, but with a little research I made sense of it and will share.

* picture not: if its not clear, its the resistor next to the whitish-one thats next to two resistors that make right angles to it.
http://i.imgur.com/i8dSO.jpg - made a quick image

Basically, you have to shade across the top of that resistor using an HB / B pencil, usually about 10, I did 15 (with an HB - also got my first few strokes off to the side :/). Shade from end to end, because your trying to create a path for current to flow that's not through the resistor, lowering the resistance on Pin 11 (feedback) and raising core voltage.

Then! Even though the core might not be getting too hot the capacitors will literally warm the air in your case. You NEED to run the fan at 100% when overclocked, its fine when its not OC'd but it NEEDS to be 100% when OC'd.

I also suggest memory heatsinks, otherwise your memory won't go much past 1090 (do you have the GDDR3 or the GDDR5? I have the 5) - not sure how much they go with a volt mod w/o sinks as I replaced the cooler and pencil modded at the same time. Unfortunately the stock cooler also covers the top memory so had to get a whole new cooler, a Zalman VF770.

Also noticed with this card volt modded I can't get 4GHz (CPU) anymore.

Thank you courage ;-) i have the version with the gddr5, however, I've tried modding the card, and I think I succeeded, the clocks are 900/1000 (for now). Do you think I can go higher?

Okay GGDR5 FTW

Before I volt-modded I had the card OC'd to 900/1090. Now I'm at 1060/1200 with a new cooler and RAM sinks. You could get 1000 core pretty easily with a successful volt mod - not sure about temps though. Not much more than 1090 memory without sinks. But watch the core temp (when you start hitting 90 load = issues) and also those caps can get pretty hot - I'm still not sure if they'll last in the long term so be careful.

I recommend ATI Tray Tools if you want to overclock past CCC/Afterburner limits - 900/1200 on this card with unofficial overclocking enabled. But otherwise hear Trixx (?) works.

Tips: blackscreen/solid color screen/restart/crash = too much core. vertical lines = memory. artifacts = glitches and such, usually from too much memory.

Also fill out: http://www.overclock.net/specs.php - will help us see what you have

And remember, if it explodes, just rub off the pencil with isophryl or spirit alcohol - and they can't tell its been volt-modded. And they can't tell if its overclocked anyway. And then you can return it I guess.

You'll also find you reach a point on core/memory when if you go higher benchmarking scores actually drop and you get stuttering. And even if you can bench at your desired clocks, doesn't mean you can game. I can bench at 1240 but can only game at 1200.
