Voltage control on a GTX 460

MSI's Afterburner does not support voltage control on my Gigabyte GTX 460's. So far all I have found to work was NVIDIA Inspector 1.91. The highest voltage I can go up on it however is 1.087, I would like to go higher, the highest temps i got with my cards at 850 GPU Clock, 1700 mhz shader < obviously lol > with the fan speed only at 70% was 73c, the threshold on theese cards is 104, I don't want to even go above 75 to be honost, but for giggles I would like to get a 900mhz GPU clock stable, and I just can't do it with these volts. Any help, or even feed back is more then welcome.

I was able to get my VDDC up to 1.212 volts :) 
I used GPU-Z to save my bios.. NiBiTor to change my femri volts... then flashed in CMD with NVFlash.

You'll have to flash your 460 Bios..

i was going to suggest updateing your drivers because in MSI afterburner i am able to adjust my voltages on my GTX 460 and have a very high overclock

how high of an overvolt? VDDC.

after flashing my bios on my EVGA GTX 460 SC 1GB , I was able to overvolt my VDDC to from a locked posion of 1.087 all the way to 1.2125.

now I can hold a stable overclock of 900core- 2200memory- 1.15v

This works in MSI afterburner and nVidia Inspector 1.9+.

I am pleased to get this far.. now I'm looking for any indication that any vendor other than MSI will support triple overvolt control.

mine right now is a lil flakey on 3Dmark Vantage but plays left 4 dead 2 and medal of honor flawlessly at very impressive frame rates :D 

voltage: 1012
core clock : 887
shader clock 1775
memory clock 2275
nd i have the exact same card....EVGA GTX460 SC 1gb external exhaust

I actually lowered the voltage and got a higher 3Dmark Vantage score xD. But i'm still waiting for that psu from newegg. I seem to have run out of juice for OC'ing =P
