Stock clocks for Radeon9600 OEM (2xDVI): GPU 325MHz/MEM 200MHz(400MHz Effective)
RAM chips on this card are - K4D553235F-GC2A
This card looks way more like a reference Radeon 9600 PRO (400/300(600 Eff) using BGA chips instead TSOP.).
Few months ago I bumped memory clocks to 300MHz (600MHz Eff), that alone gave a noticeable performance increase and as it turned out later - the most significant one.
Recently I added a 92mm fan to this card using zipties to see how far it can go. Memory hits the barrier after reaching 300MHz, for advertised in specs 350MHz they need either different timings or higher voltage. GPU peaks somewhere after 450MHz (500MHz turned acceleration off).

Q3 benchmark using morphosquake3r2
Graphics Settings: High Quality; 1280x1024 32bit
325/200 - 53 FPS
325/300 - 69 FPS
400/300 - 72 FPS
450/300 - 74 FPS
Additionally quake3 can be compiled using gcc5/6 - it gives around ~2FPS more :).
