Default How to Softmod 9600GSO into 8800GTS 512MB

I am sure enthusiasts are familiar with the term "soft-modding". The days (of turning 9800SE into 9800Pro; 6800NU into 6800GT) are back! This time round, the spotlight is on the GeForce 9 series, namely the 9600GSO. In this extraction of the original guide, we will show you how to softmod a 9600GSO into a 8800GTS 512MB.

Unlocking memory??

No improvement in results, the card is not softmodded, it's biosmodded ... it just was renamed to 8800GTS

Why would Galaxy be selling 512mb cards as 384?

9600 GSO - 85 euro
http://tweakers.net/pricewatch/cat/49?f22=2712

I Only find the 384 Mb version ?

Very good question, that is why you cannot buy just any 9600GSO and try to mod. You need this specific model, specifically the Galaxy 9600GSO OverClocked edition. Because this card contains 8 memory chips instead of the usual 6, making a 512MB 256-bit configuration.
Aha, and that one can be barely find.

But if you could find it at a reasonable price, worth the search:

Works only on one specific version/brand. Which has the chips on board.

I believe Massman thinks they are comparing the same card against itself.

It looks to me like they are comparing the modded 9600GSO against a real 8800GTS

Check the card names on the 3d mark screens.
