Default 2900PRO Bios Flash to 2900XT

yup you heard it right, i've done the liberty of finding us all a guide to flash the bios of a 2900pro over to the xt... it'll be just like having the xt.. only with better cooling.. and for 100 bucks less!!! hooray for 2900 pros!

i've been hovering at xtremesystems... and people are already hitting 11,000+ with amd 5200+'s at 3.2 ghz, and i don't remember quiet what the pro's were clock at... but some guy with a q6600 and a pro stock got 12,000+

so my goal here is gonna be probably around 12,000 with my fx62... once i get my new mobo, i'll be working at that.... or q6600.. which ever comes first!

i think in about a month or month and a half.. i'll have my crossfired q6600 system running.. and i'll be aiming at 20,000

Glad I stopped in this thread here! I'll have to try this on Tuesday when my card gets here. I smell and overclocking competition (Hopefully we won't really smell anything close to burning plastic) >:3

Erm... you dont? lol

I have always prefered a BIOS flash rather than windows overclocking of graphics cards. Doing it through windows feels somehow phoney and a bottleneck. (even though it isnt)
