Default 9800XT flashable videocard

I'm looking for a 9800 Pro that is able to be flashed with the 9800xt bios without having to modify heatsinks/fans. Can someone provide a link, preferrably from newegg.

NO, there is no possible way to tell if a certain 9800 Pro is flashable with stability or not, however. I have heard the 9800 Pro built-by-ATI could possibly have a R360 core instead of the regular R350 core. The chances are slim, though.

The newer 9800 do indeed have the R360 core. Are they moddable to the XT is another question though?
