Hey I'm pretty new here so I'm sorry if I've overlooked something in my research. I've read through a lot of the threads here (including the sticky of course) and still am without a solution to my problem. A couple weeks ago, I bought a sapphire x800 pro vivo pci-e from a friend and was eagerly looking forward to unlocking all 16 pipes. However, after numerous attempts I still remain with my original 12. I have been trying to use the modified flashrom and have tried several different xt bioses. However, each xt bios i have tried flashing makes windows detect the card as a x800 gt with lower clock speeds and still only 12 pipes. I tried to flash the x800 pro vivo 16p bios, but that resulted in a black screen. Blindly, I was able to flash back to the original bios and am where i'm at today. Again I apologize if my question has been answered elsewhere, but I did as much research as i could before posting. Thankyou for your time.
