    thats exactly what happens the power stream eats away at the pathways you get degradation at any level of voltage even stock its common physics however at higher voltage also brings a more rapid degradation time line.

    simple

    instead of having a pic and different resistors maybe an ic with multiple identical resistors when activated alone or in combination add up to the desired R I think that might be a more stable way of inreasing power. Less of a surge I think.

    good call that would provide correction to the slight voltage fluctuation in the resistor b4 it.

    yep

    it could be built to incorporate a large range and it would be up to user not to fry anything. Would have to be able to set minimums though....hrmn more complex in a deifferent way might have to build for each card (different selection of resistors anyways.) If no added resistors were functioning then it would still have stock voltage so yeah I talked myself in a ceircle lol)

    ...

    I've seen kits at the local electronics store (build it yourself) kinda large and flakey but they are great to learn how a circuit funtions. They have mm kits so it shouldn't be hard to build one from scratch and the lcd are cool but there are older displays(not remembering the name) that I believe are led number panels. so a display could be fashioned fairly cheap too.

    more

    at this rate i wouldn't be difficult to incorporate a power connector for other than mb power:toast:

    Sorry Sol!!

    Sorry Sol!!! This is only the second forum I've joined and the other only saw 2 posts. I'm pretty sure I've taken over your thread. Many appologies.:( You can have it back.:eek:

    Yikes...
    There's a huge amount of things that NEED to be corrected in the last ~100 post or so. Stay tuned. Ginourmous post is going to land...

    (maybe tomorrow)

    Dunno why the verbal explosion, and I certainly don't have a problem with you. The first and last time I recall replying your post would be the "6.3GHz-shader-glitch -thread" where, afaik, I made my point perfectly objectively.

    my apologies largon i just dont want to be portraid as someone who wrongly tries to spread wrong information if you notice that last couple of posts its all purely speculation anyway..iv never delt with a system like that and i just want to make it perfectly clear if it was not already that it was all theory to being with.

    pics

    I managed to get hold of a camera to take some pics of my XFX 8600gt XXX (udd3).
    On the first pic I marked what I believe to be the resistors used in the pencil voltage mod. Sorry about the pics, The camera is so so but I'm no photographer. From these pics is there a place that would be acceptable for the mod I've been talking about. A place to add a controlled secondary power input? I don't seem to have a place to attach the 6 pin pci-e psu connector.:) I'm thinking it may just be wishful thinking.:ohwell:

    V2

    It's great, the reference cooler was not my idea of cooling. It was way too loud and didn't provide cooling up to my standards. This setup works very well but takes up alot of space.


    Reference Cooler: 48C - 64C
    V2 no fan: 54C - 66C
    V2 Hyper 80mm slim: 37C - 48C


    Personally, my favorite bonus is the noise levels, it is very quiet. :rockout:

    with oc at 770/905 no v-mods: 39C-49C (factory clocks 620/800)

    edit: I see a scratch and burnt component aswell: see zoom pic

    yes yes

    yeah that's my card. I see smoke and sparks in it's future... hrmn
    these marks aren't visable without the flash on the camera. Maybe they are on more than just mine...



    All I had to do was think V-Mod and I burnt my card!:laugh:

    I can try taking a pic of my card to find out if anything looks missed, but I did have my card up to 115 when I first did the pencil mod correctly with stock cooler (hopefully nothing really happened in those 10-15 secs of that heat).

    I have a Zalman VF900-Cu LED on the way that I won on ebay so hopefully I'll have some good clocks to talk about.

    I've had mine at 110C for a couple of mins on the stock cooler. It still worked fine/no burning.

    @Skitzo: I had to use my vf900 screws to secure my V2 because the regular screws would touch up against resistors next to the screw holes(that's probably why the xfx xxx edition cards are only secured by two screws further apart)

    Well I'll be off work and home in about an hour or so, so I should be able to have some pics at that time.

    nothing touching

    I checked, my V2 isn't touching anything it isn't supposed to. :rockout:

    Well my camera's batteries were dead :(, but with a close look at the card I couldn't see anything like burn marks or anything.
