Don't worry about it....
You might have installed the 9700-->9800 mod, jusrt means you get the same driver benefits as the R9800. It's a little redundant, since the CAT3.2's and up have already included the optimizations:)
i reinstalled the omega ver of the 3.7 and it says 9700 now i got 18k in 3dmark2k1 my clocks are 344/311 is this good?

Very good. 3DM01 is more of a system bench though.
To get an idea of how great you new card is, just run 3DM03

Search for voltmod 9k5 in the ATi forum, you'll find the post. I also posted a thread of my own that has the entire 9500/9700 PCB scanned at uber-resolution with the proper resistors highlighted to do a pencil-mod.
Using a pencil to draw a circuit (conductive) trace between 2 points on a board.
i know what a pencil mod is i was just unaware that there was one for the 9500np. and i did a search for pencil mod in the ati section and couldn't find anything
Sorry. It was the way you asked.

If you already understand how a voltage mod works and know the concept behind pencil mods, you can click on this thread (http://www.ocforums.com/vb/vb/showthread.php?s=&threadid=233602[/url) for my post on pencil mod locations on the 9500np / 9700np / 9700p cards.
well evidentaly i don't understand enough. but the pictures are great crisp and clear. I just don't know where to start onl pencil mod i ever heard of was for amd cpus so one for a video card is news to me.
If you could elaborate as to what to do it'd be greatly appreciated!
