ATI X800Pro to X800XT mod.

Dont know if anyone here has seen threads on other forums but there is news of a mod that allows the X800Pro 12 pipeline card to be modded into a full X800XT 16 pipeline card.

To do this mod there are 4 gold contact pipes near the GPU like the ones on Athlon CPU's. 2 of the contact point must be scraped to reveal fresh copper and then connected using conductive paint.

Varying results of success with 3 confirmed saphire cards being modded and working articfat free but allot of people who are unable to get it working.

core clocks are from 475mhz standard with some people achiving 600mhz overclocked.

My local store will be stocking the saphire cards in 9 days time and if i can free up enough money on my credit card i'm getting one. £299

Gonna look into voltage modding it as well and improoving the cooling, i might get one of my old waterblocks out of my bits box and water cool it.

I need to get some more performance out my PC cus farcry isn't running fast enough for my tastes!

Got my current 9700 Pro running at 415 core and 345 mem.

I'f i actually go through with this i'll take photos of the mod and document it for the forum

Someone had spent some time figuring out which revisions of the silicon could be unlocked this way. From what little I now remember, it was the earlier versions that were unlockable. Later versions seemed to fail when they were unlocked.

Unfortunately, I can't remember where I found this information, nor how accurate it is.
