8800gt bios voltage mod steps?
thanks to henzo for some initial information about the effect of the mod...
i am getting ready to do the mod, and i have the utilities downloaded and ready to go. however, i am a bit fuzzy on the steps. i wanted to verify those steps...so i posted this thread...
1) i need a bootable usb key. i have an hp utility that will format a usb key to be bootable. i am pretty sure that i just run the file...maybe i should put it on the key and run it from there?
2) i need to read my base bios into a file, copy it to the key, and then read the modified bios with the increased 1.1V into a file and copy it to the key.
3) i need to copy the nvidia flash utility to the key
4) i need to boot to the key and enter the command "nvflash -4 -5 -6 filename.rom"
that is it right?

yeah thats correct, however im not sure you need to include -4 -5 -6
I use gpu-z to save a version of the stock BIOS then use NiBiTor to edit the BIOS
im assuming you have a 8800gt....assuming that is....
here is what mine looked like
then save it and name it like volt.rom ....make sure its in rom format and not bin.
i used this to make my flash drive bootable
then copy all the files...nvflash, the modded bios and the stock bios to a usb flash drive.--------------------------------------------
