    freezepc, what score are you trying to get? you will need a pretty mean VMod to get over 10k with a visiontek

    hey Johnnie,
    if that's your max with your card, i don't think you could get much far even if you volt-mod... not much i can help... sorry. Maybe get a newer card? i donno..

    What plastic stuff on the core? I bought it from a dude, all the core has on it is white thermal grease and a blue orb... I have some 220 grit sandpaper, rubbing compound, and some arctic silver... should I get to work?

    by the plastic stuff he means the black plastic that is "part" of the core, if you look at the core you will see a silver circle and a black plastic surround (which is what he is talking about). sometimes it is not always 100% flat so in order to get better performance outta it you need to sand it back VERY carefully. and BTW get rid of the white grease and put AS3 or ASII on there should give a 2-3mhz increase in core clock speed

    Ohh gosh... I dont know, that scares me... how much should I sand? I have some AS2 lying around, what score should I aim for?

    Basically if you are not willing to lose your card don't do anything that could possibly condem it to death like OCing if you don't want to do it you don't have to, to be honest i don't think the risks of sanding back a core is worth it, well at least for the average OCer, its just not a risk you wanna take. but putting AS2 or AS3 on there will help along with lapping the Blue orb (that will take a lot of time, youll need a mirror finish).
    if i were you i would be aiming for 9k

    Sanding down the plastic part around the core did give me 1- 2mhz OC and with stability. What you are trying to do is to make sure the core surface is in full contact with the base of your HSF. That's the goal.. I know Scoobs and I both agree.. if you're just sanding down the plastic part, it's ok and pretty safe... but if you accidently get that sand paper and wack it on some of the transistors/circuits on the PCB, you could damage them. so have to be careful.. or don't do it as what scoobs also recommends..

    set the LodBias to +3.

    then try +3.5 and +4.0.

    You will have to experiment with the setting.. till you find the sweet spot for your particular system/OC setup. It all depends..

    if that snow and temperature iz cold enough maybe you could leave it out there .. for good! let it freeze... for gooooood OC'ing.

    Cold is good fo OCing but water isn't to good for electrilal equipment

    Do you think I could put it in a case and put it outside? Wouldn't the processor condense and short my mobo?
