Info: Overclocking x850 pro to xt

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
I am a complete novice to the overclocking world. I just recently bought x850pro in hope of overclocking it to x850xt. I downloaded ati winflash but whenever i double click it it says "no discreet ati video card found".

Can somebody help me. Additionally i would appreciate a walk through of unlocking 16 pipelines but i do not intend to overclock the stock speeds. I would appreciate any help

Hey, if you just want OC, get ATi tray tools, install it, then click find max mem, then find max core.

If you want to flash it, here is a guide to it:

there is a forum called "flashing x850 pro to XT, unlocking 16pipes"
follow those instructions

basically what you need to do, is those files that you have, you want to burn them to CD/Floppy, then boot from disk.

also ATI Tool will tell you if you can unlock the 16 pipes.
download ATI Tool, install it, then open it

once opened, hit settings
then go to the overclocking tab
then post here what it says for
CONFIG_DIE_FUSES:
CONFIG_SUBSTRATE_FUSES:
let me know what it says under those two values, and I'll be able to tell you if you can flash the card or not.
basically, if it has an E in the value, you can't unlock the pipes, if it doesn't have an E and has all F's, then you can unlock em

good luck!

You need the modified flash rom to unlock the pipes, winflash will only change the cards default clock speeds.

you forgot to mention that i have to hold down the shift key....there are all F's. Hoha Jackpot.

Now to the touch question again why does winflash say no discrete video card found.
