This is an accident waiting to happen.
Personally if I get 5500 ish oc'd without the voltmod I will be pleased as punch. I will know more tomorrow when I get mine. Not worth the extra 4-5 fps for me to do this voltmod and really if you have any common sense about you (not talking intelligence here, A lot of people on here smoke me in that department I am sure) you will skip this voltmod.
Seen desktop 6800 GT's go up in smoke in 4 months using the old bios flash to 1.4 v to make them 6800 Ultras. People forget the cores may be the same BUT the PCB and cooling solutions are different. For me, if the 18% increase in voltage gave me more performance I would do it. But we are talking more like a 12% increase in performance assuming a score from 5500 to 6200ish. Risk does not= reward(for me).
You do this at your own risk and really people, even with a HEAT mod the PCB is clearly different from the pics and it is not rated for this voltage. You really should skip this one. These are not desktops, and people that tend to do serious overvolting do not do so on lappies. They do so with watercooling and tend to turn over chips quick(say every few months) I LOVE mods but this one makes no sense logically for the longterm use of your laptop. Just my two cents...

here is my bios file with 1,2 volt and 400/900Mhz http://grafiknet.de/1-2volt.rom
Tell me if you´ve tried, wich temp you have..

I was told we all needed to run the BM's at 1280x1024 to be comparable...
try it again let us know what your score is
