We already know our FX5900 is an overclocking champion with a 460/915 overclock, but how does it fair against the FIC 9800? Well we have been able to get our previous 128mb 9800 Pro from Crucial up to 441/337, but with a lot of problems overclocking the memory until some ramsinks were added. The odd part is that after talking with a few people, they had said that 2.8ns memory modules such as the ones on our FIC card were typical, but the 400mhz we were able to get out of our card was not. We're not too sure why this is so, but FIC had mentioned that these 9800 Pro's were a new revision, so perhaps Samsung has a better way of producing the memory. Throwing on our Maze 4 GPU block proved to be a good thing since we were able to get a 454mhz max core clock, and 440mhz for everyday use. We used 440/400 for our testing to represent the average you might get on a FIC 9800.
