sack_patrol Posted May 24, 2010 Posted May 24, 2010 Well..I'm not actually gonna start overclocking it yet. Probably tomorrow. First I wanna know what the average temperature of an unoverclocked 4870 is, with the stock cooler. I'm getting ~75C with 1650 rpm/50%. Last time I tried to overclock it, it didn't work out that well. I'm gonna give it another try...maybe I'll get a few extra mhz from it. Also I wanna ask if anyone knows any volt modding guides for this card. Or volt modding guilds in general so I can learn how it works. I probably won't be volt modding any time soon cuz I don't have the proper equipment but it won't hurt to know how, for when I decide to do it. Thx. P.S. - Do the gpu drivers have any impact on an overclock, or does it only matter on the card and it's chips? P.P.S - Concerning the volt modding. I've read that a pencil could be used since the graphite provides conductivity. Maybe I could try that before I decide to get of my lazy butt and buy some resistors, soldering iron, tweezers and a multimeter. And anyways...isn't it the same thing if I just flash the bios with a higher voltage? What's the difference between that, and a hardware volt mod?
