Here is a picture of my Voltmod. I understand that my Soldiering skills are the work of 8yr olds :(

@Dolk

If your service is still open after the New Year, I would gladly send some video cards your way :)

Looks good MM maybe a bit of extra work with those on/off switches but keeps it safe. I'd gle down those solder joints/wires so they can't work loose and break the connection

That was my first MOD :)
I think a bunch of monkeys could soldier better than me :(
I'll take your advice and add more glue to the small wires :)

Go Blue!
If it works then it's good enough. It's a benching piece, not a show piece. Well done.

I hope I'm right on how I did the read points in the Molex connector. I should be able to have a probe in the ground slot and one in another, this should give me real time readings :)

This is a straight up benching card, if it works under AIR first. If it works under air, then I will set it up for Dice benching :)

I like it, as Johan said though add some more glue. I found that I really had to add extra glue around the trimpots and the on/off switches otherwise I kept knocking them off the card.

Unfortunately I have already done that :(
Looks like I will have to work on redoing the card as I also pull some of the wires off :(

Anyone know if DOLK would like to play with some video cards???

If Dolk is not available let me know and I might be able to work on one or two for you. My timeframe for completing them might be a little slow if you don't mind waiting.

Hey Shawn how you going good I hope.:thup:
If you need extra glue on your solder joints you aint doing it right.:)
The only place I use glue is to glue the trimpots on if the card gets warm.
