    Can someone please confirm what the default and reccomended safe AGP Voltage for the 6800GT is?

    I have been told 1.4v is best by one site, and 1.8v is good for overclocking on another site.

    My bios only allows me to select 1.5v and 1.6v. I believe 1.5v is for AGP 4x cards whereas 1.6v is for 8x, as the card itself draws power from the Molex?

    Whats best :confused:

    I didn't think messing around with the AGP voltage made any difference? :confused:

    I run my AGP voltage at 1.6v.

    Stock for AGP x8 is 1.5v.
