Default 6200 (nv43) AGP unlock & oc results

Okay I finally got something working in my quest to unlock all 8 pixel pipelines on my leadtek 6200 AGP and also in overclocking. Last night I spent a couple of hours, first unlocking then overclocking.

The only tools I had were glxgears and ut2004 dm_rankin timedemo (64 bit), using my config of 1280x1024 with all the gui settings maxxed. I'm running gentoo ~amd64 (64bit) 3200+ (2.0GHz 1MBL2) s754 with sis 760gx chipset.

Quick summary of results - ~ 50% boost from pipe unlock,
not even 10% boost from 300/550 -> 450/675 overclock

Shouldn't I see way more of a boost from the core/ram overclock?

unmodded (4 pipes, 300/550):
glxgears - 1719.000 FPS
ut2k4 - 6.237888 / 45.869602 / 78.992912 fps -- Score = 22.940914

modded (8 pipes, 300/550):
glxgears - 3585.800 FPS
ut2k4 - 9.946456 / 63.274609 / 80.736824 fps -- Score = 31.641628

mod/oc (8 pipes, 450/675):
glxgears - 3803.000 FPS
ut2k4 - 12.979200 / 66.925980 / 79.544403 fps -- Score = 33.466377

I plan on benching (4 pipes 450/675) later.

Ahh...I should post this...the unlock program is here:
I took the 6800 unlock program and modified to also handle unlocking a 6200.

Part of my time last night involved hacking the above program and also hacking the cvs version of nvclock to get it to work with a 6200.

This is great achievement.

I tried to use nvclock tool on my 6800,
which by default has 12 pipes but 4 additionals
can be unlocked. I unlocked them with the nvclock
tool, but couldnt see any boost with glxgears,
like you had with your 6200.

Has anyone made his 6800's +4 pipes unlocked?
Did you experience performance boost?

I did the same thing a while back.
http://www.nvnews.net/vbulletin/showthread.php?t=53123

I didn't use nvtuner though, I made my own bios for the card and flashed it. I took a sparkle 6600's, adjusted the clocks, and changed the bootsplash text.

I hit really sweet clocks(585/730), probably due to my very non-stock cooling.

The card's still working happily today. Never goes above 60c, sits around 47 idle.

That sounds great. So what do I have to think? Using nvclock / nvtuner is probably not as good as flashing bios? Anyone else using nvclock and with 6800 please share you experience!
