    Flashing 6800LE guide? ( Vmod bios )

    Hi guys , i've read so much about this card , i just bought it real cheap for around 60$ used on ebay , it seems so fun! A lot of peopel successfully unlocked the pipelines and vertex , i would like to do the same , but first of all , i would like to Flash the 6800LE into higher voltage so i could get the best out of it. I really searched everywhere on google , but all i could find was people who said they did the flash and its working but no guide. Please guys , it'll be really helpful if someone has the same card as me , pointing me to a guide tat teaches 6800LE flash , or a whole 6800LE tweaking guide. THank you !!

    Reason i bought this : It was only 60$ with shipping included on ebay , plus my geforce 6200 died before i knew i could unlock its hidden pipelines ... =( , and next year or so ,i plan to build a new comp , so don't want to waste on AGP graphics.

    Intel P4 3.0ghz Prescott with HT (buying a new CPU cooler , to OC up 3.4ghz)
    1gb of DDR ram
    Leadtek Geforce 6800LE (Stock fan , stock core & mem , unflashed)
    ColorSE 500watts Powersupply 120mm ultra silent
    P4S800D-X series Asus Motherboard
    along with 2 extra case fans

    Hi , thanks for fast reply haha , i know how to unlock & overclock and stuff , i just don't know how to Vmod (volt mod) , i want it to be 1.5v if possible since i have a 500watts PSU. Thanks!

    I know it requires NiBiTor and nvFlash , but i want clear instructions , step by step process' if possible with the commands in bios mode , thank you ! this is the hard part...i'm not afraid of bbq'ing the video card lol , i guess 1.4v is enought?

    ***Does the leadtek stock cooler sucks that much? thanks!

    Changing core volts is easily done using NiBiTor to mod the cards bios. However, running the core at 1.5v will markedly shorten your 6800le's life expectancy !

    When highly overclocked with vcore at anything above 1.3v, the core volts regulator of a 6800le has regularly proven to overheat and burn out.

    Mind you with vcore at 1.3v, it should be possible to achieve a very acceptable core overclock of around 415MHz?

    Also, you may find some usefull info in the links below:-

    Hey jimmor , are you sure it'll work easily for me? As these programs looks so old , right now all we need is nvFlash for bios , plus the post is around 2005 o___O and the ultimate guide isnt that easy to read. I'm really interested into doing the process without Floppy Disk , but i'm not sure i understand much , you think you can please write step by steps process in easy english? Thank you for your time reading , really appreciated guys. Just don't wanna waste a card.
