Yeah, did that on my old 8k3A+.
Was able to run 210 fsb 24/7 without AGP tearings.

Ahhhh, so thats what causes the tearings I see in 3DMark 2001?
All along I thought it was the graphics card crapping our on me!

I'm getting a new case tomorrow with an 80mm fan in the side that should blow right over the graphics card and NB. As its a large fan it should be better than mounting a small fan on the NB.
I'll get hold of a temperature probe and see what difference it makes.
