    The pipes are not unlockable from the BIOS, I already tried :mad:

    I thought your card was AGP?

    Yup, think your right, just thought it strange that he has a 7900GS Bios showing in the bunny rabbit :D If rabit cant differentiate between the 2 cards because they are the same core then that just makes it near on impossible to do anything with it IMO.

    Well through your bios i can up the voltages a bit. Tell me if you want that or if you are going for hardmod. Current is 1.1V. I can change it to 1.2V or 1.3V. 1.2V WILL work for sure. 1.3V should work too but we'll see by testing)

    EDIT: Also tell me if you are happy with your fan's speed. It's currently 79% at 3D. I keep mine always 100%

    Actually the 7800GS card is really a 7900 GT renamed.

    BTW: Not rabit. You mean nibitor right?:D

    its set to 100% in riva from 79 :D and the volts part you think it can handle 1.5v on stock the articles i have read said it should but what do you think cause thats just a hardmod away and thats good for ~700mhz core and as for the ram looser timings and vdimm mod?

    what do you mean on stock? Stock cooling? Also you don't need to loosen up your ram timings but a vdimm mod sounds great:rockout:

    EDIT: Are you using a modded bios? With what voltage? Stock is 1.1V. I can push it to 1.2V through the bios

    No it isn't.

    The 7800GS is a 16 pipe card based off of the original G70 core (ala 7800GT(X)) albeit ported over to AGP. AS with the 7800GT the dies are laser cut and are physically impossible to unlock.

    The only 7900GT to be given a 7800GS badge was the gainward 7800GS + GLH model which was a 7900GT ported over to AGP via a HSI chip. (it was not an official 7800GS but merely a name given to it).

    The 7900GS is the card based off of the 7900GT albeit with cut down pixel pipelines and vertex unit.

    Gainward isn't the only company to do that, they are just the most well known.

    BFG has released 7900/7800 series cards that were unlockable in the past, but only in rather limitted quantities. They had a large batch of 7900GS PCI-E cards that unlocked though.

    Well this isn't exactly for the title of the article, but atleast I don't have to start a new topic. So my question is, if I got artifacts on with the ATITools testing utility, does it mean that my video card is damaged on some way? Running now on stock clocks and the card is Gainward BLISS GeForce 7800GS Golden Sample 256MB. Thank you.

    Well there's nothing so big, in games I mean. This is my current RivaTuner show-up, I couldn't get the NiBiTor to read my GPU BIOS for some reason.
