OK - just got an x800 pro - need some advice.

What program is best for overclocking?

How do I flash the bios to unlock all 16 pipes?
I've flashed the bios on a motherboard before but not a card.

Little help?

Thanks - I got it figured out. It came with 12 pipes - I got it to 16.
Also overclocked it to 513/521 with no temp issues and it really kicks arse. Quite a deal for $120

This card is da bomb!

Was your card an X800 Pro VIVO? If it was a non-VIVO I would really appreciate it if you could share how you did it.
I'm trying to unlock the card without a hard mod, don't want to void the 3-year warranty.

I tried flashing with a vivo 16pipeline bios and it didn't work so i think it was non vivo.

Then I flashed using this one and wala - 16 pipes!
Wait...you can't add an attachment...wtf?

IM me your email addresss. I'll email the bios to you.

Fist off, your GPU doesnt have to be VIVO in order to unlock.
The most successful unlocks come with the GPU's that carry Samsung memory though it seems.

BTW; you've actually voided the warranty - no matter if its a soft or hard mod. Any spec change to the card effectively does this.
