Default VoltModding GPU

k i'm not worried about doing it, i think you just use a pencil or w/e and run it over a wire, but w/e i'll worry about it IF i decide to do it
is it risky?
will i be able to avoid a warranty void?
i plan to add mx-2 if there's some left over from the cpu(there will be right, i'm getting a small one)
i hear this also voids the warranty but can't you just take it off?

they can usually tell why your card died... but you can wash off the pencil markings with rubbing alchohol

you don't draw on wire... you draw on the back part of your PCB (the part that isn't covered by the heatsink) you draw a line from various grounds and such, they have guides for each specific card

its obviously risky...

so, not a good idea for a brand new high-end card.

personally, I'd reccomend using a cheapo card to practice making precise pencil marks/soldering resistors (if thats what you want to do)

you'd also need a multimeter to measure how much more voltage you put on, and you'd need to check the pencil mark to make sure its consistant every so often since the pencil will wear away (solder = fix)

the choice is yours... I don't want to even try anything near that unless it involved soldering, which I suck at anyways
