The Fail

Recommended Posts

Looks like BFG 9800GT OCX to me. Some Gainward models have separate heatsink as well.

Ok, this is a new low for me.

 

Got a card. Pretest- works fine, some OC

 

Voltmod it- Blackscreen

 

Sits in the garage for 3 days while I work on other things

 

Remove voltmods

 

Works fine.

 

Go to re-attach voltmods with different trimmer values.......

 

 

I finally notice that NO, I didn't attach the trimmer to the vGDDR controller........

 

 

I'd soldered it across the BIOS chip.

 

 

 

Wow.

rofl. Now THAT is creative.

 

If it makes you feel better I tinned some random 10pin chip on a 7300le, guess I noticed in time that it wasn't the brains...

so, overvolting the GPU BIOS doesn't give a significant performance increase ;)

Voltmodded a card, went to pre-test it and discovered that ALL the trimmers had broken wipers. The chances of that happening are tiny! Thankfully open-circuit, not short-circuit.

Thankfully, this fail isn't mine.
