Would it do anything to up the voltage from stock 1.55 to 1.6 in terms of giving the card more power thus (maybe) stability?

Any thoughts on this? I've googled this one without much success. I read somewhere that it wouldn't do much as it's not the same as increasing the voltage to a cpu, for example, to increase stability.

Feedback?

I'd also like to find this one out, Any ideas?

no, it won't help. that's just for the agp bus, has nothing to do with the power the card gets

Its not getting more power to the GPU. So no it would not help.

then what is the point of increasing the voltage to the agp slot?,I have mine set
to 1.65 volts from the standard 1.5.it "seems" to have increased stability...my
bios settings for agp voltage max out at 1.7 volts.

If you o/c without locking your PCI/AGP buss than PCI/AGP will o/c as well. With AGP V setting you can increase stability. Nothing to do with graphic cards. Although some people rapport increased o/c I found out that it only gave me more heat in my system.

The graphics cards have a voltage regulator onboard, to prevent any flucuation/overvoltage coming from the motherboard. So increase agp voltage will just strain the regulator. To voltmod your card you need to do it on the card itself, replacing/bypassing things.

When I spoke with BGF tech support recently, the techie told me that standard APG voltage is 1.5v but for 6800Ultras "sometimes it helps to set the voltage @ 1.6v"

Yes, raising AGP voltage *can* help stability. I've seen this more than once with Radeon cards.
