No performance on 6800GT AGP bios mod.

Hi, I did a bios modification using the Nibitor tool, I only changed the vlotage from 1.3 to 1.4, but I cant overclock more that at 1.3V, did I do somethig wrong or my card does not get any benefit from this? I have a 6800GT AGP PNY also how do I put the computer componets profile in this forums? thanks!

It could be that the limiting factor in your overclock is temperature - what are your temps like. It is also possible that your chip is maxed out and doesnt want to go any higher.

We don't have a specific thing for you computer components. Just go to the User Control Panel and add your specs to your signature.

my videocard does not reach 60c playing quake 4 or world of warcraft or doing a benchmark on 3dmark06.

As stated in the article, some may not show an increase at all. Could be your GPU, temp, card maker ,or that you have a GT and that is all it has.

I would not recommend going higher on a 6xxx card.

Thanks for advice, I'll try to reflash at the same 1.4 never higher.
Another question if I flashed the card to be at 1.4v, if I open the bios with nibitor will it say 1.4v in green letters or 1.3 cause it says 1.3 even that I flashed to 1.4.

On the main volt screen it will show 1.4 if it flashed...

Read from your card not the saved bios...
