    well i pencil modded both my 8600's real nice and they clock in at 850 core :D but the shaders still wont budge from 1836... but they do geoform for 10+ hours at 850/1836 so im pretty happy. thats over 50% overclock from stock clocks now :D

    also with my penciling, i didnt just pencil the top of the resistor, i made a path along one side of it on the pcb, if you get what i mean.... in any case that seemed to work better than just penciling the top alone.

    sure man what are you looking for?...if you want to oc the clocks do get pretty high unlink the shaders and OC with the latest of RT...that will bump performance but if you want more core tone the shaders down that will allow you to OC the core clock more..:)

    thats good to know, I have it installed now, the drivers are working well,

    what will give me the best results in games/benches?? low shader/high core or low core/high shader??

    And do you have any clue how this card will clock up - its the bfg OC'd edition - clocks now are 729,900,1836
