Default 7900gt @ 720/2080!!

I was looking at the e-VGA 7900GT SC on www.ncix.com and someone posted 2 links about a volt mod and all I can say is HOLY SH!T! With a simple volt mod people were hitting crazy high overclocks like 720/2080.

id say the temps are really high on a 2080mhz lol, but with adaquit cooling it shouldnt be a problem. like maybe phase cooling on the 7900 lol, maybe some liquid metal cooling? haha. not sure.

Yea what's liquid metal cooling?? You need an aftermarket hs/f for sure for that card at those speeds. I think you might even NEED a good water colling setup to get those speeds. I'm thankful I sold my 6800GS and I'm getting this card.

Here's how to set the volts...I think:



options starting at 1.200 Volt with the existing sertting of "01110"
-------1.200-1.250-1.300-1.350-1.400-1.450-1.500-1.550

Pin22----0-----0----0------0------0-----0------0----0
pin21----1-----1----1------1------0-----0------0----0
pin30----1-----1----0------0------1-----1------0----0
pin31----1-----0----1------0------1-----0------1----0
pin32----0-----0----0------0------0-----0------0----0


I take no credit in writing this, this has all been pasted from http://www.xtremesystems.org I'm just bringing the info here.
