Is this stickey thread is just for 6800 video cards (non-GT/GS) or does it include tips/explanations on how to overclock a 6800GS as well?

Sorry I started a new thread and should have just posted it here. If a mod would be so kind as to delete it, i'll just repost here.

My 6800XT in RivaTuner shows 4 masked pipelines and I think 2 shaders but when I try to enable them and reboot, it doesnt change. Ive read on different sites that the pipes cant be activated on the XT but then again, reading sabres posts, Im wondering if I would have to flash the bios or do a batch file or something?
