    You cannot view it, it is the driver's internal information. But if you've overclocked _too_ far and stress-testing caused GPU hang, which is recovered by RobustChannels (NV's analogue of ATI VPU recover), you can see details in system event viewer if you'll enable RobustChannels event logging with RmLogonRC registry entry.

    right, because of that i write "if it works AND you have luck" :)

    If the pipes are broken, theres nothing you can do. moddify the cards on this way is only luck!

    hey. i have this new "unmodable" leadtek 6800NU A400 (nvstrap didnt stick). i have testet with that, and got the result:

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Ale pipelines and vertex has opened, no artifacts. after rebooting of coz it doesnt stick, but since i dont reboot everything is fine - i got 16 pipes/6 vertex, more spped and 3dmarks (like 20%) and more GPU temperature ; ) also it didnt block my overlocking - still 370/770.

    I bought this card here: http://icomp.pl

    I have question - didnt check it yet - if I unlock pipes , then save my bios to file, then reboot to dos, and flash with this modified bios will it keep the settings ? or should I just make autorun of this rivatuner.exe /parameters in shield mode (autokill info window after uncloking) and thats it ?

    thx for info i hope I helped a bit. ANd.. yeah really good to have 16/6 all working :p

    ps i would like to help with test new riva tuner nad unmodable 6800NU so my email is solo(at)icomp.pl . delete screens if not needed ant not unwanted here (sry).

    I think I was lucky.

    The card in now 16x1 6Vp on.

    Originally it was doing 3745 Marks in 3d mark 2005 and now it is doing 4192 marks without any problems.

    It is still with the default core (350MHz) and memory speed (900 MHz).

    The drivers used are the ones that I've downloaded on nVidea site (66.93).

    When using RivaTuner it says that the program was not tested with this drivers.

    Do you think this score could be improved with other drivers?

    i have 2 cards that show up as nv40's not nv41s, both have the same firmware, yet one can be unlocked, and the other cannot via rivatuner.

    both cards are dell gto's with 256mb.

    please keep us updated on this new version,

    sucks to have 2 exact same cards with same firmwares, and 1 working and the other not.

    It won't stay. Pipes are locked by VGA BIOS on each reboot and then unlocked by NVStrap on OS loading stage. It doen't make any changes in BIOS.

    Surely answering is more difficult, programming is a joy and hobby, and techsupporting sometimes really drive me crazy. ;)

    Guys, I've already picked required number of beta testers, furthermore all of them already reported success so beta testing of new driver is over. Thanks for your offers to help but there is no need to post your emails here anymore

    My buddy got a AMD 3200 XP, 1gig PC2700 and Soyo KT600 2.0 and he got the same thing on 3dmark03 9184 tiny bit higher he only has 12pipes and 6shaders though.
    I am odering my new AMD 64 3000 939 1gig PC3200 and MSI K8N Neo2 plat next week.
    So I hope I get a huge jump in # once I get that

    i dont think that the processor makes much difference in 3d mark if it higher then 2 ghz...its only grafik unit!
    but this is not part of this thread.
