......... I m due to receive mine today and am eager to overclock, but the present guide by shoman on the matter is kinda too complicated for me..... maybe someone can do it using plain english kinda like the pinmod tutorial or the 7800-9300 mod...... any help would be greatly appreciated !!!!
Actually, I think what we need here is somebody to host a pre-created BootDisk version of some ROMs again, as the actual flashing part is not complicated AT ALL, and I think the creation of the BIOSes and BootDisk (using Nibitor, burning a CD from the command line, etc.) is what's freaking people out...
I will create such a disk sometime today and try to find space for hosting...anybody want to suggest a spot on the web, that would be great (Yahoo Briefcase or something similar)...?
EDIT: Okay, disk is done and burnt...works fine...flashed to 425/1100 no problem, so I'm off to test this bugger...will report back later...if anybody wants this image, just gimme a place to upload it and we'll start a new thread titled '7800 overclocking BIOS BOOTDISK' or something...
EDIT2: HOLY SHEEPSH!T ELVIS! Okay, I overclocked as noted above (25Mhz clock increase, 18Mhz non-DDR memory increase) and 3DMark05 jumped from 6715 to 7058!!!! This thing is incredible! That's not much of an overclock for a huge jump in performance...I wouldn't be surprised if some folks can push ~7800-8000 on these things! Yeahbabyyeah! Highest GPU core temp is 71C compared to ~91C on the overclocked 6800Ultra...
