    YEAH BABY:D :D :D Just got everything to work with this new rivatuner 16x1 6vp now. It gave me a very nice boost in 3d mark, especially in the fill rate tests.

    I cant oc past 400/900 now, whereas i could clock upto 440/950 before, but even with the lower clocks my scores are alot higher.

    Gonna have a go on my mates Galaxy 6800nu at the weekend to see what i can do!!

    @ all leadtek users

    put an 80mm case fan on the backsided heatsink of the card blowing the backsided ram. use fan screws and put them to half into the fan, so theres a little bit space between fan and card. then simply put it on the heatsink. i did this since winfast 250 (geforce 4 4400) and reached a higher ram clock than 4600s. may u can get some more mhz out of the 6800 memory.

    hope u can understand my suggestion, my english is pretty bad ;)

    Aight - My Gigabyte 6800 works with 16pp 6vp no probs. After 3dMark03, RTHDRIBL, 3dMark05, Doom 3 and Far Cry, no artifacts seem evident.

    Masked units were pixel unit 0 & vertex unit 3.

    Sorry to sound offensive but many are talking bullsh*t. 3D Mark is not an effective test because it contains too many low level tests that with extra pipes or overclocking can boost the average frame rate huge amounts, but if you record the lowest FPS (that’s the most important factor!) you will see only 2 to 3% increase in speed from the extra pipes and less than 1% to -1% from the shader under the test with AA and AF and big explosions. If you must run 3D Mark force AA and AF on.

    The reason people are using 3dMark (at least, for me) is because the Pixel shader test is very vulnerable to artifacts. I imagine the VS test is vulnerable to vertex shader probs as well. When you're enabling potentially damaged pipes, surely testing for artifacts is a pretty useful thing to do? Meh... I don't even like the bench that much.

    As for performance increases - it's definitely noticeable, if not enormously significant. Personally I'm planning to deactivate them - at least until others have had 'em running for a few weeks without problems. I'm so CPU bound in most cases it makes very little difference to me.

    Hi, my first post here, but im reading this forum since 1,5 years.

    Again godlike work Unwinder. Thx for all your work in past.

    Both work with no Artefacts, but one thing is crazy...my 3D Temp. goes down after unlocking.

    Temp Desktop (2D): 51°C
    Temp 3D (before): 54°C
    Temp 3D (after): 49°C

    (FW 66.31)

    3DMark2K5 before: 2107
    3DMark2K5 after: 2912 (+38%)

    And it looks like that the 6th Vertex pipe makes much more power than the 4 added pipes:

    i mean it's an 33% increase of the pixel-pipelines, not performance

    Yeah, my load temp also went to 66C after softmodding, before the softmod it was 71C

    Is there an explanation for this as it should be the opposite, shouldn't it?

    eVGA 6800 NU. 16/6 all working artifact free. Kept my overclock and no negative effects! Will edit with the details of which PU and VS were disabled when i get back home tonight.

    Can one of the gurus here confirm this strange behavior with the Temperature ?

    I have tested it now many times ... overclocking from 300 to 350 is decreasing my temp from 61 Degrees to 50 Degrees !

    In 3D the same strange thing ....

    What the .... is that ?

    My Bios is not flashed (org Gainward LE 6800 128 DDR)

    Here is my Leadtek A400, easily reaching 420/950 :D
    notice the four screws mentioned by M!ke. I chose not to use them as I already have a 80mm fan blowing on the back of the card, as you can see on the pic

    P.S. Pixel unit 1 broken (works but artefacts). Vertex unit 3 appears to work, gave about 150 increase in total 3DM2005 score.

    yeah thats a solution too, but i think its not that effective, cos the cables behind the fan don't let the air "through" 100% and the way from the upper point of the fan to the rear end of the heatsink seems to be quite too long. if you have enough time try my solution, maybe you can crack the 1ghz ;)
