Hi. I've got a 6800 GT Flashed to an Ultra, and I'm wondering what AGP Voltage to set it to. Right now it's at 1.6V with 66C idle temp, with no OC'ing. Any ideas on what an Ideal voltage would be both for the card and it's temps?

Hiya,

The default AGP voltage according to the spec is 1.5V.
I am not sure if AGP voltage is now going to effect the temperature of the core because these newer cards have aditional power connectors as you know ;)

I have tried 1.5, 1.55 & 1.6 and noticed no differences.

Cheers

Bill.

Spec is 1.5V. Overvolting the AGP rarely provides any overclocking improvement. The AGP voltage is simply the I/O voltage that the bus uses. The graphics chip has it's own core voltage and increasing that is what would help in overclocking (but that requires hardware mods). I suggest you set it to 1.5V.
