    Even though my 9800np uses the later infineon memory, would it still be worth looking at doing a bios mod? Right now I can only hit 450/660(330) with the stock cooler and no ram sinks, so I'm a little too slow on the memory. Just wondering if there is any, if at all of a performance gain to be had?

    Flashing to pro might increase voltage and give you a higher clock.

    Flashing will do nothing for you but potentially give you artifacts at stock speed.

    Soul is partially right, the memory can not handle pro clocks.
    I was able to overclock my core higher after the flash though.
