    I recently flashed my Sapphire 430 core X800GTO AGP to 16 pipes with the flash utility iso posted by theholmboy:

    I neglected to backup my original bios before flashing.

    Is the 12 pipe bios in the iso the same as my original?

    I also downloaded the bios posted by dahwang:

    His ATITOOL config output is identical to my original. Is his bios the same as my original bios?

    Just thought (a little late) that it would be a good idea to have the original bios.

    Thanks..........mt

    If your card is working with 16 pipes without issues the 12 pipe BIOS should be absolutely the same like that in the utility. If you give me the PN (part number of your card) I can tell you almost 100% exactly. PN should be something like that: PN xxx(x)-xxxx-xx-(xx)

    I am having no problems with the flashed bios so I'll just assume the bios on the CD is the same as my original. I'll never need to flash back anyway unless I have a warranty problem.
