Well, firstly I took the vga cooler off to remove the crappy compound already in place, and replaced it with AS5. I plugged the card in, had difficulties getting drivers to work etc.

Well anyway, I am getting TONS of artifacts at STOCK SPEEDS in ATI tool when testing for artifacts..right now the card is idling at 56C and actually getting cooler by the hour as the as5 is somewhat kicking in, but why am I artifacting at stock speeds in only ATI tool? (didn't notice any artifacts in americas army or 3dmark05)

??

NEVER increase voltage to a card more than .1v... put it back to stock. Pumping more voltage through the bus than was designed can severely damage your video card.

your thinking of an Nvidia card. The ATI can go as high as your cooling can support... I think its just a bum card then

Try setting the option in atitool to use the old scanning method, it worked for me.

yeah I just did that, but about 10 seconds into the test (I was still noticing SOME artifacts here and there) it fritzed out...tons of colors appeared on my screen causing me to reboot.
