Default ZOMBIE TITAN GUIDE

So I finally managed to enter elite Titan Zombie club (4th person who modded Titan if I am correct) and I want to share my experience. My card was 100% working before modding, so I had a lot to lose, that's why I tried to do everything very carefully.

This guide and my mod wouldn't exist without EVGA support. Ronaldo (rbuass) also helped me a lot and my mod was based on his experience.

STEP 1

Prepare a good SOLDERING STATION DESK



STEP 2

Prepare your EPOWER



It's better to connect all POSITIVE (+) soldering pads cause it will be easier to solder it directly to Titant's PCB



STEP 3


Remove chokes from your Titan (6 pieces)



STEP 4 - MOST DANGEROUS AND HARD

You need to disable "Alert" connection, PIN 2 of NCP 4206 controller

Typical scheme for ON SEMICONDUCTOR controlers:



And here on PCB



Trace from Pin 2 has 2 millimetres long and it goes inside PCB. Be sure not to cut other traces. It's the most hard part. I could barely see it through magnifier.


STEP 5


As we are going to use stock VDIMM VRM, we need a VMOD for it



STEP 6


The same with VPLL MOD



STEP 6


Measure points:

For VDIMM and VGPU:



For VPLL:



STEP 7

THERMAL SHUTDOWN MOD



STEP 8


Soldering Epower

POSITIVE (+)




NEGATIVE (-/GND)



My mod looks like:





Final step - checking if it's ALIVE!





Soon I will do some strong LN2 results and update this guide with adding some extra capacitors for GPU & MEM.


Enjoy and have fun!
