Memory Voltage Mod - Resistor Method
This method is very common among modders. It is based on the same principles as the resistor-based GPU volt mod method.
You will need :-
- A 10,000 Ohm variable resistor
- Some wires
- A multimeter (preferably a digital model, with an accuracy of two decimal places)
- A soldering iron with a fine tip
- Some fine solder
- A magnifying glass
- Good soldering skills!
Got everything ready? Then let's start modding!
First, locate the area outlined below. This is where you can measure the memory chips' voltage.
You should measure the stock voltage before proceeding to mod your card.
Take a look at the close-up picture below.
To measure the voltage, connect your multimeter's positive point to the voltage check point shown above; and connect the negative point to a ground point.
You can either use the computer case or a Molex power connector's ground wire as the ground point. I personally prefer the Molex connector's ground wire because you can simply poke the multimeter negative point into the connector and leave it there.
The multimeter should record a memory voltage of around 2.8V. At least, that is the voltage my card's memory chips run at.
