    :D By watercooling my radeon 9500 non pro, i was able to get 13562 points on 3dmark 2003. Catalyst 4.2 and direct x 9.0 a give the card a boost, and its core is about 520mhz. Thats as much as the radeon X800XT released just a few months back. :evil:

    This shocked even me, and i have always never wanted to upgraded from my previous cards,
    - Asus V3800magic ;)
    -Ge force MX 440 :w00t:
    -Radeon 9000pro :rolleyes:

    and now i know radeon 9500 is not only as good as a radeon 9700pro, but is even better despite dual buses and having a 128bit memory clock.

    Doing the solder mod soon............. :duh:

    In 3dmark05, my card now clocks 6932, but I had to raise the cards core by 10mhz to achieve this though, and I was afraid I might have melted the GPU right into the PCB. :dead:

    NB:- I have performed the hercules radeon 9700 bios hack on this card........

    Theres no way you got anywhere near that score in 3dmark05 w/ that card and system. The highest score on futuremark for 05 is less than 8500 w/ a P4 at 5ghz and a x800xt PE @ 810/661

    Maybe he's thinking '03, I agree that's an impossible score for '05 with that hardware

    Yeah, sorry to almost give you guys a heart attack over there. I have corrected my intolorable error. I've just done the solder mod, and boy oh boy, does this baby fly!!!!!!!!! And i haven't even overclocked her yet.............
    I'm beginning to think the boys at www.overclockers.ru weren't kidding. Well, so much for slotting in my 9800XT anytime soon..........

    mmmmm I think i still have to doubt those scores people w/ over 2x your processor and x800's have trouble reaching that. Even if your card is smoking I dont think a 2.4 processor would score that high. I have not even attempted to run 3dmark05 because i know a guy w/ a 2+ghz processor and a 9700pro w/ vga silencer and 1-2 other mods pretty heavily overclocked and his score was somewhere around 2500.

    It's probably 13K in 3DMark 2001 SE, not 03. :D With my rig I only get 4,400 something in 3DMark 2001 SE with an overclocked and unlocked 9500 Pro.

    "Kill those jabber walks!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!"

    OK. I've had my fun. :D It's confession booth time. I actually altered the code of the 3dmark05 and 3dmard03 I was using, giving my card a HUGE advantage. It was pretty rad to see my card get above 6000 3d marks in 05, a feat that even the most hardened modders bleed(green blood) to achieve. :)

    "Why?" you ask? Well, actually it made me feel all warm and fuzzy inside. That and I was just looking for an excuse not to pull out my radeon 9500pro and stick in the 9800XT.
    And the weirdest thing is, it actually worked! NOT only did i sell my 9800XT, but I sold the new Gigabyte 8KANXP m.b. i had purchased to replace my ausus. :wtf:

    Well, at least for now it worked, coz in no time at all i'll be off to buy them again.
    Oh well :sigh:

    So, the moral of my experience? "Its hard for one to forsake a rig that has not once forsaken him" ^_^

    Oh, and RE(reverse eng.) isnt hard. It just takes practice. Lots and lots of it. You should try it, you'll enjoy it. (though it is highly frustrating>>>need good spliff>>>is time-sink) Python2.3 is the key. ('',)
    PRACTICE = EXP
    EXP = BETTER YOU
