    Hello,

    My ATI X850PRO AGP is running great at 520/540 with stock cooling and 16 pipes, ultra stable and fast !!

    I applied the same hack to another card, exactly the same model and P/N, similar motherboard (first one was a Intel D865PERL, this one D865GBF), same drivers (catalyst 6.3), Windows XP PRO SP2, the first CPU was P4 2.8Ghz, this one is a P4 3.2Ghz, same settings (128MB reserved in BIOS, 64ms latency, tried fastwrites on/off)

    The flash went OK showing 16 active pipes but the computer is now very unstable, hangs after some time when testing 3D apps, the temp. is ok. under 72C.

    Any help will be appreciated.

    Thanks

    Camilo.

    most cards that have locked pipes have them locked for a reason, thos epipes were probably unstable so they locked them and left it a 12 pipe pro card instead of an xt, luck of the draw really.

    I doubt that they turn a card into an X850pro because its not stable at 16pp lol...that would take too long at the factory figuring out which R480's are buggy. I bet that they just disable the pipes in the VGA bios, laser-cut the core, or modify the core into "R430" or whatever lol.
