im @ 730c/1580s/2360mem on my GTX295 using only a slight bump to 1.15v. Prior, the best I could only get was 670c/1440s/2360mem. This APP is kick ass.

Using this program does not void the warranty, if you use it safely...

The act of using this program will no VOID your warranty.

Setting your voltages to unsafe levels that result in physical damage to your card is not covered.

Just like precision, if you set the core clock on your 8600GT to 1000MHz in precision and blow up your card that isn't covered under warranty. Using the program in a safe manner is covered.

As newls1, i have my card now @ 730/1574/2400 with 1.125v. The system is stable and as i'm always running my games with my fan @ 100% i don't have major temperature issues . Got 2fps overall in the Crysis benchmark but in-game it is running smoother, most of the time at 38-40fps with Very High settings and 16xAF @ 1600x1200 with Rygel's Texture Pack, Natural Mod and jmanrob's Extreme Quality 1.34

Seems like a pretty difficult thing to prove if someone did or did not OC or volt a GPU too high..
specially if there isnt a definition of "too high"..

yep its very vague, but if you only turn it up a tick or two you can be sure your card is still covered. EVGATech_Kyle made a second post saying this;

""
You would need to push it a lot more than a hair over the line to cause physical damage.

I doubt that you can even push this program to the point of physical damage at this point since we limit the amount you can up the voltage.

The is no hard and fast rule, every card will respond to the voltage boost differently.

""
I think hes trying to say that ifs theres no visible damage to the card like burns, melting, big hole where the gpu should be , etc... then they'll replace it.

Well in Furmark i got 85/86 degrees and then i closed it . In Crysis and ATI Tools it didn't pass 65 degrees with the fan at 100%. In idle mode i have 53/54 degrees with the fan @ 50%

PS: For the record, my 8800GTX in idle was averaging at 52-54 degrees with the fan at 100%

Don't really like this program, the Rivatuner method is much better (though more time consuming)

Why just a slider? How does it effect idle/load, etc. voltage?
