Hi everyone, I just received this card today off ebay and popped it into my cpu. (deided to make my own thread. http://cgi.ebay.com/Sapphire-RADEON...9913209QQihZ004QQcategoryZ80184QQcmdZViewItem Display adapter RADEON X800 GT (0x554B) Core Name R423 SubVendor Sapphire (P.C.

I want to get to 12 at the very least ,16 is what I'm aiming at. The card has a stock cooler for now, video goes blank from heat when I try to oc too high...due to temp going to over 65C(or maybe voltage draw, its only running on a true 300w power-supply)..i had no artifacts but it shuts off, memory highest was 614mhz w/out artifacts..and gpu got to 525 before heat-up..but stable at 510 or below . Soldering is not a problem for me, I do it all the time, good at following diagrams, but not great at figuring out what does what. Voltage mod , laser cut pipe-unlocking, heard it all mentioned, but hard to find specific guides..i think that vmod guide is aimed at my exact card? Couldn't find the link to the laser mod re-solder(where r the points?) for 16 or 12, and can I use thin led free solder with a 15w fine tip point?, also if anyone could point me to the right Bios for my card would be appreciated. oh yeah the: Memory Chips Samsung 531 K4J553230FGC20 AWE451PZA 3 CHIPS AWE547GAA 5 CHIPS AWE485GAA 1 CHIP CHIP/CORE ?
