successfully unlocked 6800GS, but ATItool says otherwise...help?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
hi, i just unlocked my BFG 6800GS , and ran AM3, 3dMark 03 and 05 without artifacts...(except for the cpu testing of 'troll's lair' in 03 for some reason). ive also tried gaming a bit with it unlocked and it seems to work flawlessly, but when i tested it in ATItool, i get artifacts right away...does that mean that my unlock is unsuccessful? thanks in advance

Is your Cpu Overclocked? It may expalin the artifacts in 3Dmark. If your getting no artifacts in gaming after several hours it should be good to go.
