Shhhhh smart arse...

I know what the effect is but I mean what this exact one does. It doesn't just magically give you a high overclock.

How many extra Vs does it push through it?

Well it pretty much does mate! Higher vcore on the gpu = higher OC lol.

The resistance is adjustable so you pick how much extra voltage to push through based on the size of your kahunahs

No it doesn't... You still have to overclock it yourself.

Let me word it differently. The exact voltmod shown in that thread and those pictures using the same resistors... What are the effects? Any results on the gains?

I know what they do as I did it to an old old old 5900. Blew it up in the end for kicks as it was pretty much worthless.

don't forget higher voltage = higher heat output

4870's are £180+ atm be cool if there were some 4850 voltmods

edit: there are some 4850 voltmods

I was just looking at reviews etc and i'm not sure the 4850 voltmods would be wise with the default stock cooler
