    NVIDIA guys read the forums too -> new batches of cards seem to be protected from softmodding.

    BFG 6800 Ultra OC @ 440/1200
    I was able to mod my Palit Daytona 6800 LE to 16x6, bit 01 , 02 , 11, 13 were HW masked.

    increased the core voltage to 1.6 , then I was able to oc it to 380/942

    ran 3dmark03 and got 11329 :) no artifacts

    I got 3 6800's

    PNY - CANNOT UNLOCK CRAP!!!!
    PNY - Can unlock the vertex, but unlocking the pipes will results in artifacts in 3dmark03
    BFG 6800 OC - Can unlock the vertex, but unlocking the pipes will results in artifacts in 3dmark03

    Do you think drivers will make a difference? Or do I just have bad luck? Or both ;)?

    It seems that more people can unlock everything than not........

    Only Pixel Unit 02 was HW masked.

    No problems with running through 3DMark03!

    EDIT: This is one of the BFGs that has the A60 sticker on it. It appears as though I was one of the "lucky" ones!

    I also have the BFG 6800 OC card from the bestbuy deal. It was manufactured in Jan of 2004 and HAS the A60 sticker also.

    Pixel Unit 0 and Vertex Unit 3 were HW masked but unlocked fine with no artifacts.

    I am using 67.20 and can't run Aquamark without it crashing but I think it might be because I'm running my Athlon XP 1700 at 2.4 GHz. (although with a 9700 pro it ran fine at the same speeds)

    I am unable to overclock and can't even underclock without getting the warnings.

    Where is this A60 sticker?

    I've gotten 2 BFG 6800OC's from Bestbuy and both of them can only unlock the vertex unit. The 4 extra pipes give mad artifacts.

    As for AlecRyben, are you sure about that? Does that all new cards, will not be able to unlock?

    i'm guessing the newer 6800's will be laser cut, thus unmoddable. i also read that a 6700 will replace the 6800nu all together.

    If that's the case, does the A60 stick ont he Best Buy ones mean that they were produced earlier the laser cuts? Where on the card or box are these stickers?

    BFG 6800 OC w/ All 16 Pipes+6vp Unlocked
    I picked up a BFG 6800 OC from BB on the last day of the promotion. It has the A60 Sticker and multi-colored capacitors.

    I have successfully unlocked all the pipes and the vertex shader using RT RC15.2 and jumped up from 8500 in 3D Mark 2003 to 10600 after unlocking the pipes and overclocking to 390/850

    This is my first NV card in over 2 years. I still think ATI image quality and color are better on my old 9800 Pro, but this is quite a value when I get my rebate back and sell HL2 I shold only have about $200 in this card

    :D

    Thanks UnWinder and everyone else who have posted there results and tips in this thread. Helped me to pick out a great card and get it Thumpin!!!!!:cool:

    Mine is on the Front (Heatsink side) upper left hand corner.

    You can see it threw the packaging when you pick one out at the store. When I got mine there were 3 to choose from, but they all had the sticker. Not sure if it makes a difference or if I got lucky?

    I too have a BFG 6800 oc and just successfully unlock 16,6 from 12,5. My card also has an A60 sticker on it and has multicolor capicator. I'm still running stock speed stock 350/700mhz.

    Unit 3 pixel disabled
    Unit 3 Vertex disabled

    here are some pictures.

    Unmoddable 6800? I got another one from Best Buy and this one is the A60 one with the different color caps. However, upon installing Rivatuner, I notice something weird. All of my vertex shaders are already unmasked and only Pixel Unit 3 is masked. After selecting to unmask it, I reboot and when I come back to windows, I'm still at 12x1, 6vp.

    Argh... is there any way I can fix this?

    DUDE, my bfg 6800oc died! I had it fully unlocked 16x1, 6vp and I decided to be stupid and up the voltage, it was running at 425/850 for about 2 or 3 weeks, and one day while playing hl2 my computer randomly shut off and wouldn't turn back on, I put in a new vid card, and my computer turns back on. I tryed my 6800 in other systems and the computer won't turn on. I doubt that I can send it in to BFG, I probably voided the warranty by upping the voltage. I guess I am going to have to use my old vid card, I can't shell out another 300 bucks for another card. :(

    There are quite a lot of similar horror stories on the forums, so let's hope this will make some people finally realize how dangerous voltage modding actually is... :rolleyes:

    Hello everyone.

    I'm just wondering, what's the difference between :

    Leadtek WinFast A400 LE TDH GeForce 6800LE 128Mb DDR TV-out DVI RETAIL AGP

    and

    Leadtek WinFast A400 LE TDH GeForce 6800LE 128Mb DDR TV-out DVI bulk AGP

    Since the retail one is 50$ more expensive?
