But if you wanna post up before and after benchmarks showing how many pipes are unlocked or something...then go ahead.
I can't unlock pipes on my 7900GT. They are all unlocked from the factory...
Oh, and .....Optitron?
Dude like 3 post up is a picture of a 16 pipe 7600GT but with 4 locked now who's lmao haha.

I said this before and will say it again... My Leadtek 7600GT AGP would not run Marvel: UA with "Advanced Lighting" turned on, at least not at a playable frame rate. I did Diablo's little unlock thing and bam I have playable frame rates with the AL on (low but it is on at least). Once I OC'd my 7600GT it was a whole new video card seriously.
Now I can also add that my AQM3 score only went up like 1000 points but AQM3 does not take advantage of SM 3.0. Basically my score was "about" the same but real life applications were significantly and obviously noticeably improved. Thats all the info I can give and I can hostly stand by it...best of all I know it's true so please hold the "prove it, and your full of crap comments. If you don't believe me then ok we all have our thought.
If I were you buddy I would go and DL the new ver. of Rtuner and give it a shot. The last version of Rtuner I tried before this one wouldn't even OC my card. It was as if it didn't have support for it, but now all is well so you never know. Rtuner does say that there is only 12 active pipes but no joke I SEE A NICE PERFORMANCE BOOST.EDIT:
Just put the black probe on a screw that secures a PCI device in place on the case it will work fine.
I see a great difference so I approve of the unlocking PP mod.
