Default Help: TOXIC x800 PRO VIVO --> x800 XT Softmod Question

I purchased a Sapphire Toxic x800 Pro VIVO a few months ago and only recently heard about the bios hack/softmod to unlock the extra pipelines and effectively make the card an x800 XT. However, I've seen many posts dealing with both success and failure using different BIOS hacks, so I've got a question I need answered before I risk the card for extra performance. Keep in mind I'm running a toxic so I've got extremely good cooling and Automated Performance Enhancer.

1) If I flash to the Gigabyte BIOS to enable the pipelines, then flash back to the normal BIOS, do I run any risk of the card failing on me a few months down the road because the new pipelines are open?
