Can you see Ambient temperature on the XFX Geforce 6600GT AGP card, revision 2?

I can confirm MSI NX6600GT VTD128: Bios hack works.
Added features: GPU temperature and autoclock (in overclocking tab) are enabled.
Ambient temperature is not enabled with this hack. Remains to be seen whether the ambient sensor is removed from the card or masked out somewhere else in bios ROM.
Please note that instructions do not include the ROM file CRC update, thus the undocumented nvflash -4 option in flashing.
CRC problem prohibites vgabios-tool testing for modified ROM as well.

I can confirm that the BIOS hack works for the Leadtek A6200 128 TD (6200 AGP). I also have just GPU temp and autoclock but no Ambient temp.

yep..i can view my ambient and core temp (they do change so it's not just a "stuck" display) ever since i installed my bfg 6600gt oc...now, i went immediately to the 71.20 drivers so maybe that's why things are fine as is?

Hmm, I'm a bit weary of hex editing my bios...so for now I'll live without temp monitoring. Interesting information though...I wonder why it isn't enabled by default.
