Just got my Hercules 9700 pro today....

So far I have installed the Cat 3.4's and the ATI display utility. Now what do I need to do to overclock this baby? I ran 3dmark 2k1 already and got just about a 2000 point increase from my ge4 4400 that was oc'd to 320/630. Can someone please help me with setting up the advanced setting like for gaming performance, this is my first ATI card and not familier with it. I would also like to try and mod this to a 9800 pro, so can someone add links if possible to what I need? Thanks

try using this: http://rage3d.com/r3dtweak/ It's called rage tweak utility, it's realy good. Oh and you can't mod your Ati Radeon 9700 pro to a Radeon 9800 pro because they are made on a different PCB or like different cores and that is not possible to change using software drivers and such. Hope you have fun overclocking that beast and hope to see some 3dmarks, dude. If you need any assistance we will help you at our best.

I'm positive you can somehow mod the bios, or use hacked drivers to make the card utilize some of the 9800 pro features

you can use hacked drivers, there are instructions on rage3d.com

This messed up on my 9700, 3dmark went a little faster but games crashed soemtimes, but its worth a try.

You may have to increase the max clocks on rage3d tweaker in the expert menu, I had to do this to get my core past 405 to 425 (ive watercooled mine now )

One of the best tweak utilities you can use is Radeonator. That is if your not going to do the 97-9800 Softmod. If this is your intention than go here....

WWW.Omegacorner.Com.

Download the latest Cat series of drivers. They not only contain the 97-9800 Hack which works perfectly but you can also enable the overclock tab from within the drivers properties page. You cannot run the Bios from the 9800 on a 9700. Don't try it. The softmod enables Memory hacks which show a pretty good performance gain, especially in Direct3D apps.

If you softmodded your 9700 and it started crashing games than the softmod was done incorrectly..(Not meant as a put down or flame ). The Omega hack works fine. I play UT2K3, FS2002 and Nascar 2003 all without a single crash for hours on end.
