I'm not sure about any for the 1600, try searching http://xtremesystems.org .

Hmm after a quick search on google I found this
http://www.sapphiretech.com/en/forum...1&page=1&pp=10

Its the 512mb version though, but he says it has the same layout as the x1300 so it might be the same for yours too.

Hmm...there aren't volt-mods I know of for the X1600 Pro.

The links that The Amish Kid gave you aren't bad...try searching around. I'm not that great with volt-modding, especially cards I've never used.

Yeah, you can flash the BIOS, so it'll fool the card into thinking it's a different card...

Of course, I wouldn't recommend it unless you know what you're doing. Otherwise you're going to end up with a piece of ruined hardware.

Yep, flashing the bios is kinda dangerous. And it doesn't fool the card into thinking it's a different card unless u flash it with a different cards bios.
Atleast with nVidia u can just copy the bios from the card into a file on ur desktop, and then edit the bios. Then just flash the edited one there and u haven't changed anything exept the stuff u wanted to.

Well using the editor to change voltage is easy. The hard part comes when u want to flash the new bios into the card. I don't know what programs u need with ati cards, but if I remember correctly u only need the bios & the flashing program on the floppy. If u do it with a cd then u need to make it a bootable cd.

You can volt mod anything, it's just going about how you do it.
