what funny is you are sacrificing all that efficiency for small performance improvement
you are only limited as to how high the gpu could clock
imo, multi gpu is significantly better option for performance pursuit

This is for cards that, when subzero, need a stronger power delivery system. A GTX 580 at 1500 core draws almost 800 watts of power by itself.

Indeed, my good man. cheers.gif

Can someone help me with my "peasant" questions here..?

1) So, you solder this onto the video card let's say... Now you only need the pot on the gpu right? THIS can take the heat it's going to produce from the high current..?

2) Theoretically, this could go on something like a GTX 590 with a gpu-only water block and mem sinks and take it to another level? (Yeah, I know this isn't what it's intended for but, it could help it out right?)

Wish they'd make a "little" one for us beginners. Like a $50 one. I've only ever done one solder/volt mod on my old 9500 GT and I'm not sure I'm ready to go "big" yet. I'd buy it just for the enjoyment I'd get out of tinkering with it.

1) yes it should have a fan blowing air over it and it will handle the heat. probably a powerful fan tho.
2) yes theoretically, but you would have to mount it really well and you would have to have good cooling, and you would need 2 one for each GPU. I don't know how you would fit two on a single PCB, i am sure it can be done tho. If the inductors were on the back of the card it would be easier to do that, but they usually aren't. Fitting two water blocks and 2 extra VRMs would be really tough, you are better off buying one of those high-end dual GPu GTX 500 series cards.

Yeah you'd need two wouldn't you..? Thanks for the feedback.

Interestingly enough I've never read anything about similar products--like that card posted earlier.
http://news.softpedia.com/news/Colorful-Intros-the-iGame-GTX560Ti-Kudan-with-Add-in-VRM-Card-233862.shtml

But I'm more of a "casual" overclocker I guess; I buy "little" things so, if I break them, I can replace them. Really like this, though. Giving EVGA a point on this one. thumb.gif

Here are the details

VCORE:

Can we get some dedicated solder points the next revision, pretty please redface.gif

Guys, this is OCN. Aka, the "pursuit of performance". wink.gif I see no reason why the OP should be bashed simply because he wants to push his hardware as hard as he can.

Yeah, I am surprised this simple feature was not added. Just expose some traces and place a point.



To answer most of your questions: (1) a fridge cannot cool a PC (2) 64-bit OS for over 3.4GB (3) If a PCIe card fits, it should work (4) Resolution, not screen size (5) Report, not respond to Spam (6) Single-Rail/Non-Modular PSUs are not always better than Multi-Rail/Modular (7) Sequential does not matter as much as random for OS drives (8) Requirements come before hardware for servers

WHAT!?!? A product not focused towards MY particular demographic? *RAAAAAAGGE* madsmiley.png

OT: Good on EVGA for making a product like this readily available. Makes me want to get into LN2.

Agreed, EVGA is my kind of company. Heck, what other company makes toys for those with water cooling?

They're the extreme enthusiast company, can't hate on that. As soon as my computer returns from the 17th dimension its definitely going to have EVGA stuff. My congressman has captain shepherd on a recon/recovery mission.

thanks jacob, hey so those pins tied together, so you can just solder to the last on on the end which would be easier? right? that is what it seems to me.
