1660ti shunt mod without liquid metal

Hi Guys im curious if it is possible to shunt mod a Galax 1660 ti I own this card but i dont want to pull it apart unless i know this is achievable.

I havent had any luck finding on the internet pictures of the pcb front and back of this card.

Also when it comes to shunt modding can i put a peice of solder to bridge across the shunt??

It might not have huge gains but I want the fastest 1660 ti

Thanks I was hoping someone could find a photo of the pcb so i reduce the risk of breaking my own card because i dont want to tamper with it too much to reduce the chance of breaking it even tho i dont care if it dies i just dont want to break something without having a chance of achieving this mod

I did a search on google for it I had no luck finding my models card pcb photos only found one and it was terrible quality.

Also it’s stupid to try to pull something apart without studying what your dealing with so I’m just playing it safe.

you're welcome.

btw, i just saw that card has some voltage read points (w/DMM) though its not a high end card, thats pretty cool to play with.

if this is your first time:

6 screws for that card; 4 gpu and 2 vrms. also some factory applied TIM bonds like motor to brick so a slight twist will help pulling the heatsink off. mind the short cable for the fans. you may want to consider using a small flat screw driver to pull the plug before taking off the heatsink. but plug it in before putting the HS back on unless you have some needle nose pliers.

you seem cautious before attempting and that cool but don't let fear get in the way of having fun.

i suppose, but if you're worried about damaging something with a screw driver, then how can you even muster the courage to think about melting solder onto the board?
