    My PNY is a full 9800 GT 55nm (B1 with 1x 6 pin) and it only gets up to 650/1600 @ 1.05v in OCCT GPU error checking. The BFG Eco B1 that I had 2 days ago could only do about 600/1525 softmodded to 1.05v. My 65nm A2 BFG 9800 GT can do 675/1700 @ 1.05v. I don't want to soft-mod the BFG to 1.1v though because it runs hot, like 85*c hot at 1.05v (in OCCT). I put new paste on both my 9800s today.

    Question for you: Since you have lots of older G92 boards, have you figured out which set of sensor readings is correct in GPU-Z? I have 2 core temps and 2 PCB temps, the top core temp is usually ~6*c higher and the top PCB temp is within 1*. My 55nm boards show just core temperature and that's it.

    Count me in (I think El is doing it too). I'm just doing some last minute tweaks on my 920 for stability purpose and should be ready to go by tomorrow.

    I just dump my card's BIOS with GPU-Z, open it with NiBiTor 5.2, bump up the voltage, save as a new file, then flash the edited BIOS to the card. My BFG 9800 GT OC (standard, 65nm G92a), PNY XLR8 9800 GT (standard, 55nm G92b) and the BFG 9800 GT Eco (Eco, 55nm G92b) have all had options to raise the core voltage by 1 increment.

    Stock Performance 3D voltage should be 1.05v for regular 9800 GTs and 1v for Eco cards.

    there you go. you can download it from there. And to anyone else This is a BIOS to a BFG OC 8800GT that is running 1.1v and has had the fan speed changed

    What fan speed? I may be interested, but only if the fan speed isn't too high. If I PM you my EVGA 8800GT BIOS, could you up the voltage to 1.1(not yet, but once I get a cooler more capable of handling the extra heat)?

    you can download it from here.. You can make a floppy disk,CD or flash drive. I'm not sure how you do any of them(sorry but i forgot it) but google should help with that if you need it.:toast:
    It goes up to 100% when temp crosses 60c but a software could control that if it too high..
    When your ready just PM me your bios with what you want done and i will take care of it for you:toast:

    This rollercoaster ride with my 280 is starting to get to me... I plugged it back in, so I get get a camera shot of it failing, and it won't now! Only thing different is I didn't plug back in my hi-output panaflo fan. Could a fan that is still running, cause a big enough drain on a 60amp psu that a 280 gets choked? Dam thing cost me $26, could be hooped. Oh well, many days of testing ahead, may answer a lot of questions if it's this simple!

    No, I meant, could a hi-output fan that appears to still be running fine, actually be malfunctioning electronically, and draining far more amps than it should be? Technical enough for you? I'm just taking a break from running games at full oc on this 280, I thought it was dead.... a year of this, I just want it to end!

    Was just kidding...
    I had a keyboard that kept causing problems that I did not figure out until it finally died. Unless the fan has a short in it, it would seem impossible for it to cause the type of problems that you suspect it of, but when in doubt, remove it and see what happens.

    Easy way to verify it. Shut it all down, unplug the panaflo / replace and test for ze boots.

    Still removed, 280 running fine. Stay tuned! I've been through this before, so I'm crossing my fingers....

    I hope it works out for you. Are you folding with it right now? If you are, what is the temp. of your GPU without that fan?

    Not folding right now, will let it fold overnight for a test. Temps are actually lower now, vrm temps are very low, card is stable. Again, I've seen it run good for awhile, but I've never seen temps this low on it. Full oc. It even took 1566 shaders in warhead for awhile, never done that before! I hope I haven't jinxed myself.....
