Sorry I'm a complete noob at this and not wanting to try this anytime soon, but what exactly does a volt mod do, does it allow me to overclock higher? Also does EVGA's GPU Voltage work on any GTX200 series card by any company?
Ah ok thanks, yea heat isn't an issue here, I was just wondering how I could do it for my XFX card but it seems that I can't use the EVGA's tool, I want to get higher clocks since my temp is 60C underload even when overclocked. Any ideas how I could do this?
If you are steady with your hnds and don't rush, vmodding a card is pretty safe, the only things that can go wrong are due to human error, and that can easily be reduced by slowing down....(So CL3P20 told me
Alright thanks man, I got my graphics card overclocked because of -7C, i'll try out the volt mod and my graphics card runs at about 60C under load, so i might be looking for a little higher overclock since i'm maxed at the moment.
..you could just flash your BIOS with a SC edition for a 260... will give you a .15v increase over your current GPUv..and some more headroom for OC. Keeping your load temps below 50c, will give a lot of headroom on the shader OC, once you increased voltage a little bit..say ~1700mhz give or take a few, for the set shader strap.
Yes of course..the 9800GTX has a 1.1 GPUv.. the 9800GT/SSC has a 1.24 GPUv ..should allow for core speeds just over 800mhz.
