Hey there, I have a Visiontek HD3870 that I really need to push to it's limits.
As it stands I've gotten it to 837c 1170m through a BIOS mod.
Now I've searched the net for hours trying to findfind a way to do it for this peticular card but no avail. The resistors are always in a different spot relative to mine.

I don't have any fancy equipment, I just want to do it and have fun.
I'm sorry if the pics are too big (i've never done this before lol).
Here are some pics of the card:





I really need some help on this.
Thanks in advance,

Yikes! Don't put your computer stuff on the carpet. Put it on a table or hardwood floor.

You don't want static electricity to kill your video card.

Alright so I looked at it and again the same problem, I'm missing resistor R1222.
If you look at the pic of my card you'll notice that it's missing. That, and a few others.

I appreciate your help though.
