Hi! This is my first post on the forums. I'm also not very used to forums either so please excuse me if I have bad forum manners! Ok my question. I have this graphics card: HIS Excalibur ATI Radeon X800 GTO ICEQII TURBO 256MB GDDR3 TV-Out/DVI (PCI-Express). Here's a picture of it incase it rings some bells with those who know it visually. Anyway. I'm an unwealthy student and want to squeeze the best out of it as I can. I have heard that these cards can be flashed to unlock the extra 4 pipelines to take it to 16. I have been reading the guides and kinda know what I need to do but basically I'm a bit scared of doing it. Here are the ATITool things that show if your card is unlockable. It has the R480 core which is good I think as I am to believe that this might enable me to flash it with the HIS X850 XT PE Bios, which I can get from the techPowerUp! site. Am I right in thinking this would be a good idea to try? I have already overclocked the card to: GPU - 500MHz and VRAM - 500MHz and it runs nice and stable with temperatures reaching about 50-52ºC under pretty intensive programs like 3DMark 06 etc and running at about 37ºC when idle and just in Windows etc. Has anyone had success with flashing this card?... or even worse some bad experiences when trying to flash it? Is it ok to use ATIWinflash as this does seem to be the easiest way to do it? If I flash it with the HIS X850 XT PE Bios will it change the clock/memory speeds as well? Will this be ok? Should I flash it with a HIS X800 XT Bios (Which has 16 pipelines I think) and then manually overclock the GPU and memory? If I do do it the latter way will it make any difference to flashing it with the HIS X850 XT PE Bios? I'm sorry there's loads of questions here so any help will be greatly appreciated. Thanks for reading/helping!
