    Hi all, i've been reading some articles about volt modding 9700/9500. Would it be any difference if I do it from the BIOS instead? I know that there are the option there in BIOS.

    Thanx

    If you're talking about AGP voltage adjustments within the motherboard's BIOS, then you will find that there is a very small window for adjustments. The hardwire voltage mods you perform on the 9700 Pro baords allows you to greatly adjust the voltage levels and take your speeds to the next level.

    Waw... thanx Darth, but is it safe to increase it to 1.8v with the stock cooling? I don't think i have enough nerve to do hard-mod, since this thing cost me 300 bucks. Perhaps later when i'm ready to get a new one, :)

    thanx again..

    A general rule of thumb for cooling is 10%. If you go beyond 10% higher voltage, then you should look for some better cooling. It might work, or it might now. It depends on the HSF used on your board.

    Sorry I can't be more informative, but all heatsinks are not created equally.
