Well, I got bored lately, and decided to volt my my 8800GT 512.
Following this guide: http://www.overclock.net/graphics-cards-volt-mods/293265-how-solderless-8800gt-gts-volt-mod.html#post3599951
I got it togather, looked good, but one issue, my resistance kept being read as 300, not 14 when the mod is fully in place. Turns out, the wire to tape down kept getting loose. An excellant reason why you do double, triple, and quadruple checks before putting it all in. So I broke down, placed a tiny bit of soldier on the wire, set it on the capacitor, tapped it with the soldiering iron, and I was away.
So for a voltage of ~1.1 (via the BIOS mod) which is more like 1.0-1.05 read from a DMM, I got 720 core, and ~1720 shader. I upped it to 1.25 vore, and though I have yet to hit any instability yet, I am up to 800 core, and 1900 shader! Very impressive considering my temps really haven't changed.
Learned alot aobut circuits and how to use a DMM from my roommate, had lots of fun, and better perfromance all for a $2.75 Variable resistor.
good mod wonder if it will work in sli
As long as the clocks are the same it will work.
Just a little tricky, you will probably have to test, and set the voltage ine card at a time due to clearance issues.
