bump anyone ?
Go Here ...
Yes it could... I've unlocked the 16 pipeline and performance are increased by 33% with 06 at 1600x1200 i've done 3120 in front of 2650pts... And with Quake 4 113fps at 1024x76 No AA or AF, before only 102... Yeah... I'm the first??? I'm the duke!
i dont think u guys read the TITLE " X1800GTO" not x800GTO ???
urylin , thats for the x800gto2 i know about that modd
how have you unlocked your x1800 GTO? which brand do you have (e.g. powercolor)?
i dont really know. i googled it and didnt find any useful info.. i guess we need to post up some bios's and start comparing the numbers
Looks like they unlocked a X1800GTO 12 pipe to a 16 pipe.
YES U R CORRECT !!! WOOO HOOOO !!!
I've done the same with my Sapphire before them... X1800GTO naturally... GTO2 is old...
So you've unlcocked Sapphire x1800GTO to 16 pipelines?!
How did you do that? You've flashed the BIOS with BIOS of x1800xl ?
What worked to unlock my x1800gto (HIS) was to flash the sapphire x1800xl bios with winflash 1.05. You have to use the force option. The bios can be found on the bios collection section. Note that not all gto's can be unlocked...
I want to buy x1800 GTO,but here in Slovakia is only x1800 GTO from MSI or Sapphire.Is possible to unlock the pipes also in these cards?Or it's possible only with x1800 GTO from connect3d and HIS?
just talk here:
yeah you can unlock it to a 1800xl
I suggest you use a modified X1800GTO bios like this one: http://www.guildwarsguru.com/forum/showpost.php?p=1222326&postcount=1
The reason: You can adjust core voltages and still have 16 pipes unlocked.
Once you download it, you can open up the bios with RaBiT2.0a and change the voltage to 1.2125. This should give you enough juice to attain 600/600 easily and also keep things at a tolerable operating temperature... If you want higher, then just startup with the bios that had the 1.21 voltage set, then open the bios and you can add an additional 10% voltage. If your computer cant handle the power then it will go back down. I got it all the way up to 1.4375 but when I tried 1.46, it changed it back to 1.27. So you'll see where your limit is. Great overclocking card if you have the cooling and the power. I'm assuming the better chips could overclock better with less power
I unlocked my X1800GTO using that bios and with rabit I set my voltage to 1.38. Now with the fan at 100% I can run the card at 675/650 in video games.
I've just ordered a VF1-Plus, the best vga fan outthere rite now. Even though they list support for the ATI X1 cards, some peices dont fit. I have seen how people have modified it and I think I have a pretty good ideas as to how I will get it working. Once I get it though, I'm gonna try to attain 675/700 without memory failing. Rite now, at 675/700 it will run fine for a few minuts, but once the card heats up the memory starts to fail...
If this new cooler doesn't impress me enough, then I'm just gonna have to go with water cooling.
