actually all it 'supposedly' does is increase the voltage supplied to the ram/gpu enabling higher overclocks.
though what i want to know is if anyone has managed to get an overclock simmilar to that possible with a good 9800 pro...
then this will own for the serious OC'ers out there (me included).

oh and dont worry about the temps if you get the hercules 9800np becasue the cooling is exactly the same.

obviously the ram clocks would end up being slightly slower but im sure if youre lucky you could hit 460-470 mhz core as long as you were determined and knew what you were doing.

it it failed in my case i would stick my zalmazma-80hp heatpipe on there.

I got my Hercules 9800NP today and I flashed it after running some benchmarks.
Flash is succesful, but now I can't set the refreshrate any higher than 75hz. Not even on 640x480.

With my old card (9500PRO) I did 1280x1024@85 hz.
Now it's 75hz and it gives me a headache...

Is there anything I can do about it?

I even tried to flash my card to normal state, and still 75hz max.
Then I dl-ed hercules 3.7 catalyst drivers in stead of omega 3.8 and now it's fixed!

would fine it strange for the refresh rate to change of the chip, since those specs are baked into the vidcard

glad to see you were able to solve it & thanks for sharing the solution with us, appreciate it!
