i allready have got it clocked at 710 core & 1125 mem. I have been trying to do the pencil mod but when ever i run 3dmark 06 & Vantage i get skips in the frame rate any ideas what this might be? I have spent at least 5 hours trying the mod but i can never seem to get more than 1.9v.:banghead:

Or mod the bios so the 2D and Powerplay are identical to the 3D clocks?

Wait, 1.9v?:eek:...1.2v should do it...

Don't worry about the skips, alot of people with 48xx cards get this.
