Doesn't any old pencil do as long as it is graphite? And ya, it increases the voltage to provide a better OC. Only downside is more heat, but if you already have a regular 4850 OC'd to the point that you need a vmod then you probably have the heat issue solved.

Don't do this without research though, and make sure you have a multimeter.

Don't know... I prefer OCing an original card. Guess for users who don't want to they can pay for an overpriced OC'd card.

stock speed of 800MHZ, and an unlocked BIOS (i.e. the overclock limit in CCC is a lot higher than regular 4870's)
