    Run ATI Tool and use the Find Max Core, and the Find Max Mem utilities. Core clocks matter more than the memory clocks so use the Find Max Core utility first. Then manually lower the clock speed about 5-10mhz below that, then set the clock speed and run the Find Max Mem utility, again setting it 5-10mhz below the max once it finishes. Setting it 5-10mhz below max should insure stability.

    personally, i think you should find out what kind of memory its got and flash it with the 9600pro bios with the same memory size and chip. there are a few articles on flashing to the 9600pro in the forums. you'll have better luck with the overclocking, and it will stay on, the 9550 has an overclock lock that sets clock back to normal if you start a 3d program.

    The 9550XT are just 9600XT with a different name. It should do 9600XT speeds. And I bet it has the temp sensor chip.
