    Yes, it is a 9800 Pro card on XT PCB.

    But check the clock speed of the core and ram to confirm.

    9800 Pro:
    Core: 380 MHz
    Ram: 340 Mhz (680 MHz DDR)

    Yep thats an XT PCB alright(lucky Bugger) the Angled bit in front of the HSF is the Thermal monitoring chip
    you pretty much have an XT in Pro's clothing

    Lucky bastard aye!! LOL!! Congratulations dude. I do hope that you know where you can fins an XT bios in order to do that card justice. Also get an ATi Silencer in order to keep it as cool as possible.

    well the catalyst control center (version 5.4) isnt giving me temperature readings or overdrive. but ati tool is reporting temperatures. (66C btw, yeah i need a ati silencer)


    btw what version of the ati silencer do i need? i heard that i need revision 3 since its a 9800 xt pcb even though i only have 128MB of video ram. is this true?

    thats one hell of a deal.
    i just sold a 9800pro@xt on xt pcb that was a year old for 185.00 on ebay.that included a zalman vf700 hs/f but that was only 20.00.so you definitely got a good deal.

    peace out

    im glad i sold mine last week because i just looked at neweggs front page and they got true 9800pro cards for 129.00.with the prices of ram,cpus,and gpus,and storage i think i might build me a second pc for the kids.


    peace out

    small update: gpu is idling at 73 degrees, I just bought a vf700cu cooler for it, should be here in a few days will report back with idle and load temps along with overclocking results. from my testing though with the stock cooler my ram goes to 385 with no artifacting and the core goes to 420 no artifacting, just the temps are a little high for my tastes.

    People always pee on themselves when they find out they have an R360 core, but the fact of the matter is, most of them overclock like crap. Many R350 cores it seems, will do 450Mhz on stock cooling(at least) right out of the box.

    there is alot more that comes into play when you flash to xt.also if you want the temp monitoring then you need the xt pcb and r360 core.my pro with r360 core and samsung mem would do those type of clocks without any artifacts at all.me972 started the flashing guide here at dh and i know what you mean about the ocing of the r350 because he was able to out perform me in all tests and benches with his flashed r350..he also tweaked some of his cards ram timings which i have never had any luck with so i leave them alone.i guess it depends on the exact batch of cards.


    peace out
