you can just do the conductive pen mod and add 0.2V. your line only needs to be maybe 1-2mm long.

How exactly do you do the conductive pen mod... what materials do you use... where can I get them... what are they(as in link them to me..) I'm getting a 7900gs.. so I'm interested too.. :\

I searched google for an image of the 7900 GS's PCB, and it looks the same as the 7900 GT's PCB. So that's another card you can use my guide for.

Yeah, but I don't know wtf a conductive pen is, even while looking on google, where to find one etc :|

And that resistor stuff.. I don't get where/what a resistor is.. ;\

It's pretty simple.


The conductive pen traces a line from point a to point b.

When they are joined, they let electricity pass thru, thus giving the card more voltage.

a resistor is exactly what it sounds like. It's an electronic component that resists the flow of electrical current. The Resistance is measured in OHM (Ω).

For memory volt mods, you can take a number #2 penicl, and shade a resistor with you eraser thus decreasing the OHM and letting more electrical current pass by, allowing better overclocking.

Shade a resistor with your pencil? So you don't actually use the tip and write on it, you just rub the resistor..?

How do you check how much voltage your memory is recieving, and core is recieving.. ATI Tool?
