    so since i successfully vmodded the 8800GT i was seriously considering doing my 2 8600's and shooting for 1ghz core..... do i need the same 500 ohm variable resistors? and ill post high detail pics of the PCB's as they may not be reference.

    mmm sik sik, ill borrow my sisters digital SLR and whack a macro lens on it and take some nice pics of the pcb either today or this w/e and get em to ya.

    i reckon with a quad core cpu and the 8600's at 1ghz core/~2500 shader, we could be looking at 7-8k 3dmarks, and they scale well so who knows, 12-14k in SLi?

    the most ive gotten from the so far is ~10,800 in SLi with the dual core... so at the aforementioned clocks and settings 12k doesn't seem a stretch!

    now you have me interested! I have a 8600M in my laptop. First off, how can I OC this thing? Is there something I need to unlock software wise - I have tried every OCing program out there with no luck. I have not dug around either though - maybe you would know....???

    GOT IT, I had to go in low level tweaks and click install, then it opened up the option. Seemingly easy, wonder why i didnt think of that before??

    what drivers are you running try running the latest betas or old 101.24's i heard that the 16x series drivers lock OCing on M gpu's..

    good but the issue may still be their M gpu'z with the 16x driver tend to revert after overclocking so when you oc make sure the status monitor is up to make sure the clocks dont drop again.

    ok you should lap it! :D..ill flash your bios with those clocks and a couple other modificatiosn that may or may not help you out.

    i clocked the core 10mhz lower as so the stock setting wont be unstable you can clock it back up if you wish.

    Hey Solaris, do you think you could modify my actual bios?
    reason being, It doesn't let me flash the bios(even after using all the force/override options)
    thx

    Thx for all your help Solaris17!
    The bios in post #68 pls mod that one thx

    I don't know what's going on but I can't seem to flash the bios. It says "Board ID mismatch"
    it's not the "subsystem ID mismatch" or "device ID...". I've tried overriding, but I still get the "Board ID mismatch"....
