AGP Voltage 1.5 or 1.7

in my bios okay whats the deal here, it is stuck on 1.5 but it gives me the option to place it at 1.7? will there be any performace gain? its an ATI x800xt, but i can never go too fast

board is an ASUS K8V SE Deluxe skt 754

voltage alone won't net you any gains (unless this is some sort of new fangled video thing i'm not aware of). but...it will make it more stable if you are overclocking your video card (either hardware or software tweaks).

more voltage will mean more heat. so be prepared for that.

ahhhhhhhh no more heat!!!! i've been looking for a new fan/ram cooler setup since the first day i had the card in there. ATI isn't putting bga sinks on the ram anyway the card runs HOT!!! after playing battlefield2 or halo pc for awhile. its an AIW card so i'm kinda screwed on the good cooler setups at least from what i've seen.

if anyone knows of a good cooler for it let me know.

thanks for the help as well
