Hi all, I recently bought this second-hand card:

GeCube 9800 PRO 256MB AGP 8x
GC-R9800PRO-D3

And the whole screen starts to artifect as soon as the computer boots up. The memory heatsinks on the card gets really really hot within 1 min (like finger reflexivly jumping back hot). So I checked the cards bios using atitool and rabit, appearently it's been flashed with the official ati bios (ATI 9800 PRO 256MB Samsung).
I tried lowering down the frequencies of both core and mem with the ati bios, but the card still artifects and the ram still burns. Maybe this is a timing problem? Or worst of all, the card could simply be faulty
Don't even know what kind of memory chip is on this card, since they are covered by heatsinks...(samsung?)
Couldn't find the original bios nor the informations of this card on the net...googled it but no luck.

Could anyone whos using this card be kind enough to pass me the original bios?? And any opinions on the problem would be really appreciated

Thanks again.

ps. btw, i checked the card, no trace of volt mods.
