Default Voltmodding my 7900

okay.. i've just been givin a nice little guide to volt modding the 7900 gt and i'm considering it... and i have one question.... i don't wanna take it too high.. just to 1.4v, like the 7900gtx.. okay and with that being said, i shouldnt have to get a new heatsink for that should i?? seeing the evga still uses the same ol' stock heatsink for theirs.. would i really need one for a voltmod to 1.4 v??

oh, and by the way, here is the link to that guide in case anyone else is interested

you probably should upgrade to a vf700 or vf900 to get some kick*** OCs, but as long as your temps dont get insanely high, you're good

yeah...

Im too lazy to push mine up from 1.4 becuase it runs fine and the only games I play are source and bf2 as of now and they dont lag at all so I dont see the point...

ya.. i've gotten 9500 with my 7900 and opty 146 at 2.8 ghz... so i would imagine with a dual core overclocked to 2.8 and 7900 voltmodded, it should be easy.. maybe i should shoot higher?
