I own a powercolor 9600 pro 128mb video card with hynix memory. I have softmodded it with the latest catalyst 4.10 drivers. I was wondering what what the max that this card can be over clocked to and can this card be falshed with other bioses to have 8 piplines instead of for if thats possible. Im sort of a newbie with video card overclocking so sorry for the noob questions.

Also my stock speeds are 400mhz core/ 300 mem.

The 9600 line, especially the 9600 Pro, isn't a downgraded card like the others (the 9800 SE, for example, being a downgraded 9800).

As for the max clock, I've gotten 465/348 without artifacts, though I'm sure you could get higher. Hell, you might even break 500 with the core.

I have a Radeon 9550... I've pushed it to normal 9600Pro (400/300x2) speeds.. I can already push the core on mine to ~525. With new ramsinks, maybe I can get your 348 or better =). I'm using 3.3hynix memory.

If you FDD mod your 9600Pro theres quite a lot of juice to get out of them. When I had one after the FDD mod I got 515\375x2 out of it. Thats enough juice to play even the likes of Doom3 with pretty decent settings.
