    Hey all, I'm new to this forum so first wanted to say "hi" :)

    ANyways, coming to initial question - I got me today the Leadtek 6800 256MB PCI-ex and I'm trying to softmod it into 16 pipelines

    The problem is, that according to all the psots here and o Riva TUner readme, I should get a line in VGA Bios about masked unit. I don't have such line.

    Is it the fault of the newest nvidia drivers (those oficial 71 release)...or is it the problem of having PCI-ex card....or anything else?

    It's because you have a new revision of the PCI-express card.

    So...basically I'll have to wait for new version of Riva Tuner to try the softmode? Or is there any old and dirty trick that would allow me to get the full 16 piplines just like this? :D

    Just check - on the front page of Rivatuner, does it say NV41 or NV40? If it's NV41, then you can't ever unlock more pipes - they aren't there. The NV41 has only 12x1 5vp in hardware, so there's nothing to unlock.
