    Hello all!
    Well this is a first time post for me here so Im hopin to get some help ;) Anyways, I just got my Radeon 9000 and got hosed big time. The company I ordered it from said it was a 9000 Pro and I actually got the 9000 w/the slower mem/ddr settings. That didnt really bother my since I figured hey! Lets just o/c it. Well tough luck there. I dont know if its something Im doing or something with the program/card Im using. I can o/c the memory just fine. In fact I have that up to a much better 470Mhz (using 235 DDR) from the stock 400Mhz without a hitch, but using powerstrip EVERY time I change the core speed past 250MHz it just defaults back down to 250MHz when I click on OK. All I want is 25MHz more to reach the 275MHz core the Pro has. If any one knows whats going on or can link me to another o/c util (cuz I sure as heck cant find one) for the 9000 series Radeons Id really appreciate it. Thanks so much!!

    First of all, if you got ripped by the vendor, don't take it. Demand that they ship the correct part. Raise hell! While I haven't played with any of the new Radeons yet and can't really help, I would mention that Ati may be sorting chips by tested speed. The stock speed may be all that it can handle and the card builder has locked the speed to cut down on tech support. Who built the card?

    I know powercolor makes a R9000 with those clocks - it could be one of those.

    With any 3rd party Radeon card - I wouldn't count on the term "pro" meaning anything - get the actual model number and look it up on the website.

    I have an old Radeon 9000, and I'm looking into overclocking it. I want to do some research first.

    Has anyone tried flashing the 9000 with a 9000 Pro BIOS, or a 9100 BIOS? Is this possible/feasible?

    I know the major overclocking programs out there, but which ones would you recommend for one of these older DirectX 8 cards?

    Thanks!

    Before creating new topics, I try to search for existing topics. I think it's only polite.

    Either way, my questions remain. I know the Radeon 9000 isn't the newest card. However, even when I build my next system in the spring, I'm still planning on keeping this desktop. It's going to be my girlfriend's new desktop. And we want to be able to play some old LAN games on it.

    Does anyone have any info on overclocking the 9000?

    ATI Tool. See www.ocfaq.com (it will redirect you to another site, which is fine).

    Thanks.

    Do you know if the 9000's can be flashed with a 9000 Pro BIOS, or a 9100 BIOS?
