    those case fans are inactive and just dangling there because the GF104 runs cool enough not to merit using them anymore compared to the 9800 GX2 i had in there previously

    Very nice clock! I haven't really pushed this 1GB card yet. Seems like most of the 768MB cards hit higher core and shader clocks than the 1GB cards, but I'm hoping this Gigabyte has beefed up its power circuitry enough to make that untrue for this card.

    u r added Tech2.

    i just modded my Gainward GTX460 1GB GS with some mosfets i had from my old Arctic-Cooling Accelero TwinTurbo Pro i mounted on my old Asus EAH5770 CuCore 1GB.

    Card with the mosfets:
    [​IMG]


    mosfets:
    [​IMG]


    On the GLH (Goes Like Hell Edition) of the GTX460 there is some mosfets cooling here:
    [​IMG]


    mosfets mounted:
    [​IMG]


    and as a bonus i flashed my card with the GLH bios and another bonus is i took a voltage unlocked version of the GLH bios :rockout:

    [​IMG]


    so maybe i can hit around 900mhz on the core now or more on the stock cooler :rolleyes:


    u can download some unlocked bios' for the GTX460 cards here: http://www.overclock.net/nvidia/781924-gtx460-1-087v-voltage-cap-unlock-13.html#post10455973

    there is Zotac bios' , EVGA bios' , Gigabyte, Asus DirectCU460 but look for urself and i am not responsible for any dieing cards out there if u do it wrong :nutkick:


    *EDIT*

    i tested and i hit 900/2000/1800mhz @ 1.125v and max load temp was 78°C in Heaven Benchmark v2.1 ^^

    Right... I has the card :D however... I'm totally new to this kind of overclocking on a graphic's card... fo starter's what's the realistic limit's I should be looking for my card? on stock volt's and over volted? I just don't want to fry it within my first month of use :D

    Tech2 before i modded my card i used only 1.000v and got 800/2000/1600mhz out of it and i was pretty happy with that, and now i moved on to +0.125v and got another 100mhz on the core and 200mhz on the shaders ^^

    ohh... so I guess I should think myself lucky to be able to run 830/1000/1660 on stock volts? :D

    yap, but remember every card is difference so they don't always Overclock the same, ino that Gainward and Palit uses a smaller PCB on their GTX460 serie cards than Nvidia's own so maybe that's tells a little too that it's not as normal as many of the other cards, but still a nice card ^^

    Not as normal... explain? are you saying other MSI 460's overclock better at stock volt's?

    I should also mention I haven't tried pushing it much yet, just enough to have quick blast on a game with the settings.

    that means even if u got 2 cards from MSI it's not 110% guarantee that they will overclock the same.

    Ohhh I get what your saying alright, but it doesn't answer my original question... what are the realistic volt's & clock's I should be looking for?

    as I said I just don't want to fry it anytime soon :\ but I do want to be able to achive a one of score in 3Dmark 06... and Vantage when I get round to it and then put my clocks/volts at a reasonable level.

    I skimmed this thread again and didn't see this problem mentioned. I have been noticing times where performance dips very low. Or some games performance seems much lower then it should be. So I ran afterburner v2.0 on the second monitor so I could see clock speeds and such well gaming.

    Everytime I saw a performance issue in a game at those times the clock speed was being bumped down to 405.
    In games that I was seeing what I thought was crappier performance then I should be getting the same thing was happening, though in this case the card was never bumping up to 3d speed but was staying at 405 the whole time.

    I have tried the driver that came on the cd with the card and the latest official from nvidia. I have also done a clean install of Win7. This problem seems more prevalent with games through Steam. Anyone else experiencing this?

    oh sry about that, i will say around 1.000~1.200v doesn't hurt as long as ur card is being properly cooled down there shouldn't be any problem.


    Flak what games, and what does GPU-Z read ur card to?

    I thought I hit the max when I got it to 950/1000/1900 using 1.062v ... Seem's I still got some fair headroom to play with :D

    I can't hit a high clock with the original 1.012 Volt so I cranked it up to the maximum default Volt of 1.087 to hit a 850/1700/4000 stable clock. Slightly disappointed with the clocks but not with the temps!

    I'm not 100% sure on this... but maybe a driver update would be helpful?

    I can honestly say I seen the 260... but still for some reason insisted to myself that it is older than the 259... and 258's :laugh:

    Thank's for the pointer though ;)
