Default Re: voltage mod

would the same process be used to flash the 6600? Also, isnt there a chance that I cant change it through a softmod and that I will have to hardmod it in so way or other?

U just have to find a bios that matches ur card and then u can edit it. Don't use the bios for other cards coz they have different settings which could lead to ur card blowing up.

How dangerous is a vid card bios flash? Would it be safer to flash the bios or to do a pencil mod until I can solder on a 10k ohm VR.
