No, you can't unlock anything, what you see is what you get. I have no idea about the temperatures , but if you're intrested I've just seen a review on xbitlabs.com that puts this card in a totaly different perspective (aka being super close to 6800 GT/GS in performance)

I'm already thinking if I should spend 150 on a 6800XT or 130 for a x1600pro that seems to have some juice in it after all.

Well i thought that is the case which i like because i have to do no more work to get it fully runnig as such..If i were you if you are saving up and looking at a 1600 pro i would save that little more and get the xt because for instance over here there was only 20 pounds difference between the pro and xt

True, but I have an AGP board and since I have no intention of upgrading my mobo/cpu I'll have to stay with the pro.

Thats not always the case because these days you can get PCI-E boards with AGP slots as well ..ther called Dual boards and you dont have to change anything just the Mobo

I've had a bad experience with an asrock a year ago, the K7 UPGRADE based on KT800. At the begining it seemed quite good, but not as good as my old ASUS A7N8X-x. I sell OC-ed computers (for fun), and this board was used to clock a 2500 barton @3200 speeds. I used the jumper and I put the mobo @fsb 400. After 3 months it smoked, literaly. The chipset was toasted (I suppose because of the lame NB heatsink). The case had no more than 30° so it should have worked. The mobo wasn't OC-ed, it should have worked at 400FSB like it had a real 3200+
My point is: no asrock. Maybe there are good asrock boards, but in 4 years of OC-ing I never burned a single CPU/GPU/mobo. Maybe I was unlucky, but I won't try it again.

I've searched a little and there was an ASUS K8N4 soket 754 nForce4 based board, so pci express for my old cpu Life is good!
