Lel, tomorrow (It's going to be 0:00 here...) I'll plug it in my C2D system since I don't have room in this pc :P (dual slot graphic over PCI-e connecor), the only thing I'm a bit worried is... shaders... I couldn't run unigine tests on it (when it was 16x) bc of shaders :(

lol That's impressive.

The best fact is that I didn't use a dremmel (I don't own one) I used one of those:

(that's why the cut was so bumpy...)

FurMark requires an OpenGL 2.0 compliant graphics card: NVIDIA GeForce 6 (and higher), AMD/ATI Radeon 9600 (and higher)

Other pins are for data... (PCI-e 4x/8x/16x) (Layout: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/PCI_Express#Pinout )

I just cut other data pins so it runs at 1x, maximum bandwidth is PCI-e 2.0 1x for it (max. of 5 GB/s), so there's a bottleneck (maybe when it's at full load it's about 15-20 % of bottleneck, but they're theoretical values ;))

Update: Now you'd call it Nvidia Radeon X600

Reduced GPU clock since it's passive heatsink and heated up a lot.
