Well, one of my last 9800 PRO 256, when i flash it to XT, it enable the temperature meassurement feature. Something that PRO doesnt have.

However, it seems not all 9800 PRO 256 has the HW to support it.

BTW, i really think 9800 run hot, and i dont know if is ATI problem or 9800 problem in particular. I always have problems in summer to run games more than 1 hr. And im talking about 28 c ambient temp.

Whoever told you that is a complete moron. The 9800 series lived for damn near 3 years.

I have a 9800PRO in my second machine that is more than 2 years old. The poor thing has been through numerous heatsink replacements (not that they were bad, I just wanted to be able to OC more), and has been running a wicked OC ever since I got it.
