idle my card is about 42 degrees. When playing games its about 55-60. When i run 3dmark with AA etc it goes to 74degrees, would it be safe to do the pencil mod?

What heat is not good for the card?

Thanks

You dont really want to exeed 80c when stressing the card so I suggest you get some better cooling before you Vmod.

vision: Thats the cooler im using and I know of a couple of others who use it. It works well and not to difficult to install. I recomend it for air cooling.
I got mine from here http://www.quietpc.com/uk/vgamb.php#zm80xhp with no problems at all.
Im using the ZM80D-HP and ZM-OP1 VGA Heatsink and Fan BUNDLE. Look in my sig for temps and clock speeds.

Default Some come out with 16 pipelines

I bought a x800Pro 2 days ago , heard that this batch had 16 pipe lines, and sure enough it did . Gigabyte x800 Pro VIVO. Anyone else finding this. No mod needed here

Not unless its a VIVO, NO WAY!! You'll only end up destroying your card and that will end up in much whailing and knashing of teeth!!

Hi guys.. I really need some advice here from you guys so I can know what to do. Im planning on buying an x800 Pro as soon as they are in stock again and I need some help on this subject.

http://www.newegg.com/app/SearchProd...x800,pro&DEPA=

I need to know which of these can be modded to the x800 xt with 16 pipes and which cant, and I mean without hardmod. I see that the Gigabyte x800 pros , some come already with 16 pipes. Please inform me on this subject

Thanks for all of your help, it is very appreciated


By the way, Im really looking at the Toxic Sapphire X800 Pro, Im not sure if it is worth the extra cash or not. for 418$ i could go with the Sapphire X800 Pro OEM , only if either of these is moddable.. thanks for all of the help again

the only vivo there is the toxic one, but I've never seen these toxic branded sapphires before, the sapphire vivo I have came retail boxed (430$) but with a chrome looking alien on the front, and the normal HSF.
This toxic vivo could possibly be a newer version with the mixed 1.6 / 2.0 ns ram.. or maybe just different cooling so that it's more overclockable? maybe somone else knows.

Only go for the VIVO branded x800 pro's, they are the only ones capable of a bios unlock. I'm not sure about the Toxics, don't think anyone has bought one that I know about.

it isnt the toxic one, they also raised the price by $20 ( probably because they are running out)


EDIT: it MUST have VIVO in order to work. just get the one from the website i posted. it is worth it.

The Toxic line is too new . . . no one has tried the softmod on one yet. So if you buy that one, you're taking your chances. I would wait for someone else to buy one who's brave enough to be the first to take the risk.

I have absolutely no evidence to back up this statement: but I wouldn't be surprised if Sapphire and other companies started releasing new versions of the cards that are no longer soft-moddable. Could this be one of them?

The first Sapphire VIVOs were ATI XTs with a quick BIOS flash to disable four pipes, and a Sapphire sticker slapped on them. These are newly customized versions by Sapphire. They could've taken their time to do things properly, including cutting the bridges.

Again, I dunno. Just guessing.

i am using a stock amd heat sink in my 9800 pro and i am doing 440/370. you think the ZM80D-HP will do much better than my amd heatsink?

Does an X800Pro VIVO modded to XT but at Pro clocks, just with 16 pipes, approximately equal a GT?

Yeah I'd say it does, might be even faster in some areas (e.g. far cry with AA/AF enabled or BF:V). Most people with 6800 GT's top out at around 410 core and they don't have an easy option to fall back on like the pencil mod for VIVO cards to get more juice out of it, so I'd keep that in mind also.

Default Sapphire X800ProVIVO --is the mod worth it?

Hi, I've just joined Rage3D but have been reading the forums for awhile and have to say that I'm impressed. I recently bought a Sapphire X800 Pro VIVO card with GC16 memory...in other words, a moddable card. The thing is my overclock totally blows and is pretty much limited to 510 core/520 mem with ATITool showing temps at 74 load, 43 idle. Would I see a real-world performance benefit if I unlocked the 4 pipes considering that the potential for OC goes down and, if anything, I'd have to turn down the clock speeds? And has anyone noticed any weird effects/artifacts/etc from the mod? Thanks in advance.

Oh, my system spec is a P4 2.8B with 1 gig dual channel PC2700 RAM
