I got a V3 card from a friend and it's a bit strange. It has no screw holes in a cooler, and no hole on the back on the card for TV-out. But it has TV-out! I drilled a hole and it works. The cooler is like a usual V3 3000 cooler(silver one). The card was working as as V3 2000 until i changed it's bios. Now it's a 3000 (working just fine @190+ MHz). I'll take a picture of it and post it here. Any comments?

hmm just a later model of the Voodoo3 2000 PCI but then with SGRAM Memory layout, the PCB is somewhat of a light green colour. The card it's self is usually a Rev.D 0700 if it's a Voodoo3 2000, if it's a Voodoo3 3000 PCI with SGRAM it will be in most cases a Rev.D 1700 and if it's a Voodoo3 2000 PCI with SGRAM and a small black heatsink, then it's a Rev.D 5399 or older

so there were2 Voodoo3 2000's with SGRAM one with a black heatsink and the later model with a Aluminium coloured heatsink and the Voodoo3 3000 PCI SGRAM with a large Aluminium coloured heatsink like on most Voodoo3's and yes all 3 don't have mounting holes, the heatsinks were mounted with adhessive paste on a glue basis.

My friend's uncle was the owner, and he's not the one to do it. It's a really good card that works at almost 200 MHz!
