**Now im wondering.**

as urylin has instructed me via PM, i pencil modded my card.

i have the ATI silencer 4, and dont want to solder, so its impossible for me to measure voltages.

VGPU went down by 30 ohms, and gained me from 534/555 to 567/567.

card doesnt go above 60C load. (although my case has good airflow)

VDD and VDDQ i lowered both 24 ohms. ZERO change in OC potential. i did and redid this repeatadly, and never one change.

since the samsung and the ATI specs seem to differ, could someone with the resistor mod please tell us which way works best? higher VDD or higher VDDQ? and at what resistance you are running at?

after adding an OCZ enhanced power lead, i got more OC too... all the way from 567/567 to 571/571... what the hell, im sure for stock cards without volt mods it'd do better.

OHM readings for my card, pre and post mod are following.

VGPU -> reduced 30 ohms (lost the paper with numbers... dammit)

IGPU unchanged.

VDD 937 ohms -> 913 Ohms

VDDQ 760 Ohms -> 736 ohms

oh and for the n00bs to this (as i am) please make sure to keep the black end of your multimeter to the one end... i use the bottom.

if you swap the leads over, you will get a different reading, and mess the mod right up....
