How do I use "RivaTuner" with the 9800SE?

Hi

I would like to know, or perhaps if someone could guide me step by step on how I use the RivaTuner (latest version v2.06) to unlock the 4 pipes on my Radeon9800SE.

I do however have them "hacked" drivers, but someone said once that I can use this tool to unlock the remaining 4 pipelines.

My card is R350 256-bit with 128ddr. I have tested it earlier with all pipelines on, and it was ok. However the cooling at that point was not ok, but it's better now. (No stock VGA cooler, I have an Arctic Cooler on the card instead but no HS for the Ram..).


Thankful for any replies given.

Can't you just flash it instead? Would be easier in the long run.

I can flash it??
How? Can you "point" me in the right direction??

<edit> Ok, I was over at Guru3D and found this tool called ATI Radeon BIOS Tuner (RaBiT).

Is it this tool I should use? How "safe" is it, what should I think of so nothing goes wrong?
Can this program "unlock" the rest of the pipes??

Thankful for any replies given.
