This room gets quite warm. With my central air system the rest of the house is like a freezer compartment!! But this room is not. Now I bet you are asking, why not just move to a different room. Well I may be WeldZilla but if I try to leave this room my wife becomes like GodZilla!!! But she has relented and will let me put a room airconditioner in here. So I plan on it while she is of a mind to let me. you see she runs her system stock so hers is quite cool. So I will just rest on my laurels for now. Til my room is modded.

I had a little window unit in my last computer room. Same issue in the summer. It was a great help.

I'll run what I got tonight. My main rig is back on air cooling for the time being but still does fairly decent. CPU is a little on the weak side but the plan is to pick up a quad at the next price cut for $266.

My Mach is strapped to my 939 setup. I'm waiting for power supply to return from RMA so I can see what my trusty 148 CABYE can do under phase. It is 24/7 stable at 3169 on water so I am curious just how far it will go at -35 celsius.

Truth is I'm really not getting much from the 7950GT O/C wise. Anyone got a good clear link on how to Volt mod a 7950GT? I'd at lest like to look at it and weigh my chances, can't take any big chances at this time...":O}

When I get to the house I'll grab the pics I have. The 7950GT uses the same points as the 7900's. I did VGPU and Vmem with variable resistors.

An extreme cooler.

Gotta love that. Throw up a pic or two of that if you will sir...

Just happen to have a pic loaded in photobucket. It was in dire need of some repair when I got it so I picked it up cheap.

Should make for some interesting runs. It's a little graphically challenged right now with the 7100GS in it. I was waiting for 8800 prices to drop so I could upgrade my main rig but it doesn't look like it will happen for a few more months.

Pics of the 7950 vmods.

1st attachment, VMem courtesy of VRZone, confirmed working by me. If you choose to solder in a VR make sure it is at it's highest resistance w/ a multimeter before applying power. Faulty VR's have killed a card or two.

2nd attachment. Courtesy of xtremesystems. GPU Vmods will be done using a conductive ink pen and run as follows:

red 1.25
yellow 1.30
red + yellow 1.35
Purple 1.40
purple + red 1.45
purple + yellow 1.50
purple + red + yellow 1.55

I have read that the 7800 7900 is the same. I will look at my card to see if it looks like this.

Thanks for the post.

I may be interested in the Ink mod. any data on temps increase with voltage and "safe", well reasonably safe, voltages for the 7950 GT. I'm water cooled on card and CPU. But it was 85 F here yesterday....":O}

On water with 1.45 volts to the core, load temps average 46 degrees. That gets me up to 745 core speed. 1.50 volts will only gets me to 765 and brings temps up another 4 degrees.
