I believe nVidia learned after the 6800 series to physically disable any extra pipelines so they cannot be unlocked via software. I know the 7 series were not able to be unlocked and I'd bet that the 8 series is that way too. What you are likely seeing is Rivatuner being stupid. Although, some benchies could prove me wrong.

Your 8600GTS has 32 pixel pipelines stock, not 4. You probably misread something. I even went so far as to take a look at this in RivaTuner, and sure enough, nothing to "unlock", and it already said I had 32 anyway (I have 8600GT, basically the same card with a few minor differences).

Don't even bother posting benchmarks. We all know that:
1) The 8600 doesn't have pixel pipelines
2) The shaders are laser cut so they cannot be restored with software.

Even 6800 cards started having "locked" pixel pipelines. Take the 6800XT as an example. A few of those cards were able to be unlocked to a 6800GT, but most were stuck with just 8 PPL. If you unlock it via Rivatuner, it showed it as unlocked I believe, but they were still, as Duckie said, laser cut and unable to be utilized.
