Here is how i modded the vgpu and broke off that little resistor or whatever it is.


an a closer look

I haven't tried it out yet but i hope it works.

beast, what kind of soldering iron did j00 use, hopefully not a gun :banana:

Sorry for the large pics.

All works well and so far i just tested 400mhz in 3dmark. What should my goal be in mhz if i'm watercooled, and does my memory laging at 340 hinder performance by a lot? I don't want to mod my mem yet as i don't have ram sinks. The tweakmonsters are too expensive and i can't find others.

I used the thermaltake memory kit heatsinks and cut them in half.

I think 400Mhz is good if that's stock voltages. I'm getting around 440 on the core with stock voltage and water+80W pelt... The mem I wouldn't worry about too much.

i'm getting an 80w swiftech pelt as soon as it is shipped so i hope to get up to where u are. What voltage are u using?

Default voltage right now. I ordered the resistors for several volt mods and they should be in soon. I can't wait!

oh §§§§ 440 with no mod just pelt. Oh i can't wait.

Can anyone tell me if that resistor i knowcked off is important or if my soldering job on in actually does something.

I am at 19k now =)
