Bfg 7800gs Oc Apg

Got one 2 days ago, runs sweet @ 510/1.42

But I'm feeling greedy! Are there SAFE (I can't afford to lose on this one) method for this card to unlock the pipes or increase voltage.

One problem I have is that Riva tuner won't run on 2000Pro,.... last I looked.

Thrill me with your wisdom! ":O}

The good news is im fairly sure I had Rivatuner running on 2000 last year, also attempted unlocking is safe enough anyway.

Im not sure about what this card in particualr can do so ill have a look in the morning and get back to you if Dsio or someone else cant lend a hand sooner.

Thanks MM. I tried Riva and it wouldn't install...I'll look see for a newer version and see what's up. I'm in no rush here, so please do what you can at your own convenience. Much appreciated!

Nope, it has more pipes, 24 in fact at the hardware level, but they are locked at the hardware level as well, so no unlocking. Voltmodding is easy enough though, following one of the several guides in threads here.

We seam to be missing 3DMark05 / 06 benchmarks, which Dan surely knows we all want to see from that setup. Can't wait to see how having a 64-bit Sempron effects your 3D performance with that card :P

I have a 3000+ 754 Sempron sitting in a machine downstairs....not a bad little chip really (for $55 )

Although, yeah, might just a be a tit bit of a bottleneck.

OT: Hehe. Value-for-money wise, you can't beat an overclocked 754 Sempron.

Well yeah, that's how I got the reported scores! LOL

I meant I can't afford to register it and get the official results report. I clarified my post by adding 3D Marks above my scores...":O}

(How big a sook?)

You sure that 3dmark score is right?

You should be expecting a much higher score than that I think...

Edit: Around 3000 should be your minimum
