Hey guys, I just finished reading the sticky on how to OC a 9800 pro however, the sticky as well as other links i've read only refer to OCing a 9800 pro with 128mb of memory, mine has 256mb of memory, its a Saphire card. Im using this site as a guide right now on what to do, any help is appreciated thanks!
Edit: I know my card has the 360core, because i saw it, the box the card came in said it was a 256mb model, however there are only 8 memory chips total on my card, so which one do I have? I read that if i had a 256mb model it would have 16 memory chips, thanks.
Well, lol I'd tell you the coding however i just put heatsinks on them because i bought a Zalman cooler, I know the ram is Hynax or Hynix, not samsung. ATITool also says i have 256 memory, but you seem WAY more knowledgable about this then me, so ill let you make the call.
Not sure if this information will help but here goes:
ATITool also says my core is 350, however i know its not, because i read 360
on the chip itself, thanks Wusy!
Edit: Also there is this little white sticker on the board that says:
Radeon 9800 pro 256m DDR V/D VO
Alright man, I'm having some trouble. Every time i try to make a boot disk for this the little window pops up that gives you the option to format and when i click on the msdos disc option and then click format, the progress bar doesnt even move and then the window goes back to how it is when you open it.
I also tried doing this from bootdisk.com and downloading a windows 98 msdos boot disc and when i try that it says i have an error on sector 0 or something like that and doesnt let me do it, I've tried this with two floppy drives and new floppys, any suggestions?
Are you using a 1.44mb floppy or a 7xxkb (whatever it is) floppy. I remember once that same thing happened when I had a 7xxkb floppy and accidently tried to format it as a 1.44mb. Completely ruins the disk and you cant reformat it correctly either.
