Fixed my artifacts at 205+FSB somewhat...

Well after hours of messing around with things I think I found out why my graphics were getting a little messed up past 205. I turned on the AGP spread spectrum thingy to .5% and walla...artifacts all gone. Still solid as a rock and no performance loss. All it says in the manual is it descreases the EMI(electro magnetic interference). I have no idea what it is actually doing but it kinda makes sense. :P I think it really depends on what kinda of videocard you have down to the manufacturer. Some people have this problem...others dont. Give it a try, it definately helped me.

it actually, decreses the amount of procecssing it does,

instead of working everycycle it will miss a few
so that means, less heat, less power used, less EMI

try benchmarking with it on, and off and post the results here

cheers

I ran another test with it on and got 15510 so it doesnt cut performance at all . This is at 209 FSB. When I do 210 I get screen flashes which is telling me to put my VDD to 1.9 ...i have it at 1.85 now. I dunno how much I want to push the VDD but alot of people have it over 2.0 with no problems. This is with active cooling on the NB tho. I use a vantec iceberg on it so I should be ok.

Well the artifacts seemed to have come back for some odd reason so now im stuck at 202 again which isnt too shabby. It doesn effect memory, cpu, or any 3d benchmarks as far as i can tell. I benched UT2K3 and it was no difference.

hey Coheed, question like this will probably get answered ALOT quicker if they were in the proper topic. I don't think too many sound card modding guys are looking to help out answer question in the Epox topic.

I'll see if I could get your post moved to the proper topic ok.
