    Can't really help ya w/ the mod, but out of curiosity...which 4200 do you have? I've currently got the Gainward, and its not a very good oc'r @ 310/570. The Abit is set to arrive at my house tonight...hope it oc's better

    was hoping for more than that but either way, its better than this gainward...btw it took a CPU cooler on the GPU to get over 300MHz. I'll report back tonight what I get out of the Abit.

    Thx for the info. And if you find a vmod, plz post it back here

    Cool, nice to see that the Abit roxx, looks like I will be getting one as soon as I go to Italy, I can get it for 200$ there.

    I will need the Voltmod too, and I hope we get some info in this forum..

    all i got to say about this abit is WOW. I got her tonight and right out of the box after working my way up i've hit 325/614!

    330 locks, 615 gives a couple artifacts....amazing card...easily smokes the gainward. gonna mod the gpu cooler a little then and see if the core goes up any higher...but damn, great performance right out of the box.

    edit: room temp about 73F.

    Damn! My ti4600 hits 325 only! These little ti4200's certainly have lots of muscle behind them!

    Ur tellin me

    Pretty sure what I'm gonna try next as far as GPU cooler mods...but undecided on ramsinks or not as of yet. Don't have any experience w/ ramsinks, so not sure what to expect out of them.

    Gainward 64MB 4200 w/ VIVO max clock: 300/570 (CRORB on GPU)
    Gainward 64MB 4200 w/o VIVO max clock: 310/580 (CPU cooler on GPU)
    Abit 64MB 4200 w/ VIVO max clock: 325/614 (stock cooling so far)

    That's w/ 3.5ns EtronTech chips on the Gainward, and 4ns Hynix on the Abit. Either those EtronTech's suck, or Gainward has some crappy circuitry on these boards....

    Very happy w/ the Abit...I'd recommend it to others looking at the 4200's.

    You guys made me quite happy that I am getting this card, but the RAM doesnt look top, if it were only 3.6ns.

    Hehe, I know but a Ti4600 will do

    Do we have a Voltmod yet? Maybe in some other forum?

    I am looking forward to Sysfailures coldplates too

    I'm drawing out the ti4200 dimesions as I speak, and the 4600/gf3 plates will be done next Friday.

    WTF? well I cant change my mind, cant get any other GF4 for 200$

    oh edit I found this: " The Ti4200 was overclocked to 325/535MHz core/mem for the 1600x1200 + 4xAA + 8xAniso test to see how much more can be gained from overclocking :"

    So... still a healthy GPU OC but the mem is realy not stunning.

    Yea, I saw this this morning and knew that memory oc had to be a typo, lol. Then I also saw what Malecky caught...and confirmed my assumption

    Well I still am hoping for 700DDR with serious chillin and a voltmod.

    I did 520mhz Easy with the same RAM no HS on it with a R8500 if it were cooled it had been 540 which is a lot with just some Al on it.

    I've spoken to a fella on the ORB w/ the Abit @ 668MHz memory w/ merely ramsinks so I don't see your goal being out of reach

    Talking to this guy is one of the reasons I decided to go for the abit

    Can someone give me the PCB layout or the chip that controlls the voltage numbers? we can figure it out aurselves or just write to Abit

    abit is very cooperative to say the least. Well it would be a longshot.

    Sys can you tell me is it a controller or is there a PCB design involved like the Radeons. If its a chip it is simple like pie.

    This pic of the back of the board might help:

    I see something interesting in the upper left corner of the card, might be a vital voltage regulator.

    And the bigger chip over the Siluro print... but I dont know anythin maybe write down the markings on that chip and search the net, if you insert the chip name in google for instance you never know what comes up.

    Gimme a top shot if you have time Sys.

    Looks like the Ti4200 uses two SC1102 controllers, one for the Vgpu and one for the Vmem. From the picture alone it is difficult to tell which is which. Can someone measure the resistance between pin 11 and ground for both ICs with the card unplugged?
    Also need someone to find the caps to measure the voltages from(one leg of the cap is ground, the other is the voltage you want to measure).

    Be careful, don't fry anything.
