    the 12v line is supplemental and has power regulators on the card that keep the running voltage in spec . the 12v helps keep the current stable w/ the high draw of these cards . the actual running voltage remains the same you just have more amps to draw on . increasing the agp slot voltage will have the card running overvolted .
