    Will only do it for you if you understand the risks. I take no responsibility.

    I keep telling myself I got myself one of the 'better' cards, but even IF I have I won't ever be pushing it above 1.1v, I keep hearing that's probably the wise/sweet spot, so it'll do me.

    I''ve been getting close to 950mhz on the core at 1.087v so even if I just do it so I have one single run at 1.1v and hopefully 1000mhz on the core...

    ...but yes I do understand the risks, and would be guttered if thing's went wrong, I'll just worry about that if the time came.

    Count me in boy's! I picked up A Sparkle GTX460 768mb for $159.00 @ MicroCenter. Currently have her clocked @ 875/1750/900/1.0vcore. Fan is @ 60% and only 45C folding 100%. Great card this is. I will definitely pick up another.

    My old Sparkle 768mb was a beast. At 1.087v, it ran at almost 950 core/1900 shader. Give it a shot buck!

    Agreed!!!! WU crashed when I went for 940/1880 @ 1.087v(15087ppd). This seems to be a sweet spot.

    Try to game a bit too if you get a second one :laugh: Too much gaming awesomeness going to waste with 2 if they just fold :p

    Yesterday hit my first 1080p gaming, still goes strong, but picked up the lag/under 70% usage in BC2, so going to try the beta drivers to remedy that.

    Uncap your GTX460

    **I take no responsibility, if you do this you are on your own.**

    Open original bios from GPUz in Nibitor 5.7:
    [​IMG]
    Say "OK"

    Change Device ID to GTX470 and save as "GF104b.bin"
    [​IMG]

    Close all nibitor windows and re-launch nibitor: open GF104b.bin then go to "Tools>>Fermi Voltage" area marked is what needs changed to 1.2125v:
    [​IMG]

    Then change your device ID back in the adv info box:
    From-
    [​IMG]
    To-
    [​IMG]
    Click rescan bios and click "Ok"

    Then "Save bios" as GF104mod.rom. I suggest flashing in a pure DOS environment. FreeDOS has been known to brick cards.


    If I have not covered anything please ask.

    Oh and don't forget to always live by these words:

    Add me to the list.

    Here is my mine-review I did: [Mini-Review] eVGA GTX460 1GB EE vs. eVGA GTX470

    Question for those who are uncapping the voltage. What are your mosfet area temperatures, if you know? I fear uncapping the voltage is going to bake the GTX460s that don't have mosfet cooling. I've got some enzotech coolers ordered to put on mine before I do any overvolting beyond the 1087 stock maximum.:toast:
