What colour is the PCB? Dual DVI port? 6-pin power connector?

Never trust software to report the core, the best way is to remove the heatsink and physically look to determine which core you have. If you want to be lazy, overclock the core abit and reply back here with your max overclock or upload your current card BIOS.

some new GTO2s are actually rebadged x800xl with r430, but the dual DVI and VIVO models are still r480 but they also use a r430 bios. Easiest way to tell is by overclock. R430s won't clock above 440mhz without vmods, and r480s can usually break 500 without a problem. Also blue pcb tend to be r430 xl cores and red pcb is r480. Most newer GTO2s come with 16 pipes out of the box so flashing isn't necsessary. If yours is an r480 you can safely use an r480 bios just make susre your mem is the same as the bios you want to use, either 1.6ns or 2.0ns. This flash can also change your cards ID and make default clocks higher. Make sure your card can handle whatever default clocks from your chosen bios.

i would use ATItool to overclock, 490 is definately above an r430, but kinda low for a r480. Don't use "find max" option in ATItool, just up your clocks in small increments and make sure VPU recovery is enabled.

if your having trouble removing the HSF you might want to run some heavy benchmarks (3dmark or something else. You can monitor your temp with ATItool. After you get it good and hot make sure all screws removed and twist the HSF slightly and gently pull upward. Make sure you have some TIM (thermal paste) around because you don't want to reuse your old paste. Now use 91% or better Isoprobyl alchohol with a cottan ball and clean off all the old paste from the GPU and the HSF; the alchohol can be purchased cheap at a local drugstore. your pipes may not have open because of the flash being done incorrect (i am not trying to insult you, it took me a few times to get the flash right to unlock my card). Make sure you uninstall/reinstall ATItool, without saving your log file and then check to see if the pipes are open. Your PCB is blue you will need to flash with an r430 16 pipe bios, your core is probably an r430 but the good news is your 490 core clock is very good for this core. The ones without dual DVI and no power connector or VIVO are really x800xl. You should still verfy your core but any r430 bios with matching mem should work. DO you have 1.6 or 2.0?
