Hey, that's great. :toast: I haven't done something like this since my FX5900...

Just one question: Where are the VGPU readout points, so i can check the actual voltage that's being applied to the core? Thanks a lot!

Vgpu

Yep. Voltage of the GPU core (Rasterizer & Shaders). But i would love to know where the readout points are, so that i won't go too far with the VGPU when adjusting that trimmer..

gpu-z will tell you the voltage in windows, if you come across some info about the readout points let me know so i can update the article

Readout

Ah, ok, thanks! Should be fine for me so far. :)

Edit: Didn't do the Mod so far. I just tried GPU-Z 0.3.3, and while it reads out the temperatures, it seems to be unable to read out any voltages. I don't know if that's because of the driver I'm currently using (182.08), or because of my operating system (Windows XP x64 Edition SP2).. I guess, it's the OS though. So, still no readout for me so far, latest RivaTuner can't do it either.
