U still talking about increasing the voltage?
Increasing the voltage ain't going to directly have a big boost to ur FPS, but it will enable u to oc ur card more -> more FPS.

I didnt type that out right. Is increasing the clock speeds really gonna give me a huge boost in fps (like >10). From reviews I've read, people that oc'ed their 6600gt only got like a 4 fps increase in doom 3, and a 4 fps increase in far cry.

Increasing the clock speed will improve performance. It should increase the fps more than 4, depends on how much u oc. I can't oc much, my gpu doesn't want to oc, so I'll be trying to change the voltage soon.

But u can try and see for yourself.

Default Re: voltage mod

well I just want to do one last bump to get last minute info b/f I try it this weekend, hopefully everything works out. So if you have some new info to introduce please do so.

edit:

I tried using nibitor and I used different bios and the maximum voltage that it would let me go to is 1.4v. So I guess the only way to bump the voltage is to hard mod it, right?

no. It lets u go to 1.4 only coz u have set it so. Go to tools -> voltage table editor and then mess around in there. It's very easy.

I still haven't been able to do this, the flash program didn't want to work.

well I tried using nvFlash, like 3 different versions of it, but none worked. :S
So I'll try to find a program that I can get working.

And if someone has done this with nvFlash or some other program then post here or pm me, I want to get this working.

I tried to do the volt thing with nibitor but I cant find where you are talking about. I looked in the tools and all I saw was something with hexidecimal and something for table preference.

what version of nibitor are u using. I use 2.5 and the voltage table thingy works fine. I have even made a "test bios" which I really didn't change the values alot, I just wanted to see how all of the stuff works and if it gives me any kind of improvement.

But nvFlash seems like a crappy program. I thought about getting something else since it had quite bad rating.. now I know why. Or then I'm just too stupid to use it.
