Thread Starter 
I have an evga 6800 agp that i tried unlocking using the faq found here http://www.overclock.net/faqs/14685-...highlight=6800
after i unlocked it i started up ati tool to scan for artifacts. immedatly the fuzzy cube wigged out and turned yellow. does that mean that i can't run with my card unlocked?

What are the stock pipes and pixel shaders on the 6800 you got? Usually all the pixel shaders are ok to unlock, but the pipelines give trouble sometimes. It also depends on what games you play. I can actually run some games with 16 pipes unlocked, but on most games those extra pipelines artifact. Mine is an 6800XT so it's the version with 8 pipes and 4 shaders on stock.

Sounds like you have either a damaged quad pixel unit, damaged vertex shader, or maybe even both damaged. They are usually locked for a reason.

Did you try 12/6 and 16/5?
Those settings cause major artifacts too?

My 6800GS AGP also came stock 12/5 and I was only able to unlock the other vertex shader (then 12/6), because the quad pixel unit was damaged.
