[FREEBIE] GTX260 216

Hey OCN!

As some of you might know, we are putting together a nice little overclocking competition with 2D and 3D stages. In the 3D stage we will be using the GTX260 exclusively. I know some of you are very curious about the competition, please be patient the thread is coming. Please hold your competition questions until then

I ended up getting a few cards for a good deal so I figured I would mod one of them and make it available to everyone as a freebie opportunity.

Mods
  • Vcore voltage control with mod disable switch
  • Vmem voltage control with mod disable switch (Samsung memory)
  • Voltage displays for Vcore and Vmem
  • Per-Phase OCP
  • No caps, but I can add at your request (they don't help this GPU at all)
GPU Limits
  • I tested the card for overclock limits but I wont put that in here...its much more fun if you find out for yourself
  • The PWM controller has a physical limit build in, according to the manufacturer. For this perticular card the Vcore limit is about 1.29v. There is no way to defeat this without advanced VID modding or more extreme mods.
  • I have tested a few 260's with extreme mods, all of them max out clocks on water near 1.30v so this is perfect for most users.

Rules & Entry
  • The freebie will close on April 21 and the drawing will happen shortly after
  • OCN account that is 1 year old or has 300+ posts (not firm about this but looking for established users only)
  • Intent to use for upcoming OCN competition. I understand that life happens and its not a problem if you win the GPU but for some unforeseen reason you cannot compete.
  • Agree to pay shipping! I put up the GPU at my own cost so I would like some help with shipping.

Some pics for your enjoyment





Good luck!

This is incredibly generous of you Mr. Mllrkllr88 and is sooo much more than "just" a GTX 260. These modifications take a decent amount of time to track down the right trimmers/VR's, lcd displays etc. and an awful amount of skill and know how to get done properly. Just imagine if I walked in to Louis Rossmann's shop (LOL) and asked to have this done, wouldn't be cheap. I think I might have a card reserved for the comp already so if true obviously I will not be part of the giveaway. Love the selfless spirit, it's always enjoyable when you're able to help someone who's just coming up and that's why you've always been no. 1 in my book !

Looks as a good prize to use for a better purpose in GTX 260 competition. Maybe is a great backup if things end the worse way with current cards in stock.

Regards

I'd love to enter (and compete in the OCing competition) but I don't have enough money to cover all of shipping, so I'll just say grats to the winner once they get it .

Carter, can you explain that in *English*?
