Xtreme Addict Posted February 23, 2016 Author Share Posted February 23, 2016 (edited) Did the mods today. The cold throttling is a very small resistor and hard to desolder (for me at least). I suggest just use a good pair of tweezers to pull it off. Anyway, what should the power consumption in GPU-Z read after shorting the power limit resistors? Mine reads about 20% idle at 1500MHz in "3D always mode". Around 62% at load. Seems high to me. I've had problems before getting the solder to stick on the power limit resistors. They are slippery Just wondering if I need to resolder... Regarding mod - this one is pretty easy. Just buy a soldering station with a hot air (even a cheap one for 50-60 euro) and it will be very easy pulling off components might destroy soldering points and take even a trace with a soldering point. Believe me you don't want this. Just put some soldering grease on the resistor, warm it up with hot air and touch with soldering iron for few seconds and move soldering iron with a resistor and it will just be perfectly unsoldered. You are pushing great in terms of OCing so to be complete try to learn a bit more about soldering - practice on some dead hw. Friendly advice Regarding GPU-Z - I am not 100% sure right now, but from what I remember it will always shows power consumption at 20% in my case.
