I would say forcing the drivers is a good first step as its a lot safer.
We need to get a definitive answer on a bios that will work. Now how do we find that out...

the X800 pro is known to have a lasercut in the exact same place... the X800pro is 12 pipe so this would tell me that the lasercut disables only the last 4 pipes.
this also tells me, since ati is known for using GPU's with bad pipes in lower configurations, that maybe some of the lower end dies are getting to our mr9800 boards.
oh and one more thing, the updated memory on these cards suck.... cant go over 400...
