"only" .4v???? are you crazy, .1 v increase is enough to shorten the life of a 6800 GT to about half a year, you realize that voltmods are for

1. people with lots of money who can afford to kill a card
2. short-term benchmarks
3. fun

that's it, seriously, you'll kill your card in less than a year if you do this, that's my two cents, not worth it, but hey if you have the $ then go ahead, just don't expect it to last long
