X-bit Labs does some extreme voltmodding of the NVIDIA GeForce 7600 GS reference cards:
A year ago the core of the ordinary 6600 could be overclocked to the level of the senior model or even higher, but what do we have today? The reviewers are all talking about poor overclockability of the 7600 GS series and do not recommend it to overclockers, but few of them point at the reason for such a dissimilar behavior of absolutely identical chips on different cards – a greatly reduced voltage.

But what if this voltage is increased? Let’s try it out? We’ve got an EVGA GeForce 7600 GS card for this test. It’s time to check it out in action...
