    So yeah, first time post. I installed the ATITool .0.22 and ran it. Then I decided I'd softmod my 9800SE and wee if I could unlock the pipelines. Well, XP, for some reason unknown to me, won't recognize the drivers. I don't have SP2, simply because MS is stupid and didn't send me the CD (dial-up). I'm not sure what the problem is, but I had torollback the drivers for ATITool to work again.

    Also, after I installed the 4.12+ drivers, atitool came up with an error saying that no compatible device was found and that hardware acceleration and vertex shader 1.1 were required. I have no idea what went on during the process, but something wasn't right. Now, I have my old drivers and it overclocked a little. So, any suggestions as to how to get the 5.2 drivers to work and check the pipelines would be helpful.

    Seem to remember reading that ATi recommends SP2 for use with 5.2. For what it's worth the 4.12 Cat is marginally differing from 5.1/5.2. If anything 5.2 lowered CS:S video stress test from 85 to 73 for me... (yes, I reran immediately with same result).

    Edit: rebooted and now I get 84, two subsequent runs. wtf? Guess I'll stick with these drivers anyway

    I guess I'll have to get SP2 from somebody with a decent internet connection, then.
