editing max voltage cap in bios is really easy. use nvflash to save your current bios, then open it the nibitor, adjust the cap, use nvlfash to flash the modded bios, done.

it really only takes like 5 minutes to do.

and what ever you do, DONT use gpuz to save your bios to file, use nvflash.

Just a note, for anyone else looking into this, the ONLY true full-cover blocks right now for the 460 are Koolance's and Aquacomputer's; everyone else just does a GPU block with a heatsink attached to it that blends in so it looks like it's full cover, but it's really not.

hhmmm seems simple enough, my gtx460 does only hit 55* at load, i think ill give it a try. what kind of increments do you think i should bump up the gpu voltage when it becomes unstable?
