Disaster has struck! I was happily working on windows, browsing the internet, when i noticed that when i moved the mouse it left a trail of dots. Hummmm... WTF?!
I opened atitools, did a scan for artifacts, and lots and lots of yellow dots appeared over the cube.
The card was at the default 500/500, and i hadn't been playing all day, only doing work.
I checked if all fans were working, voltages were ok, temperatures ok.
If i downclock the mem to 380Mhz (!) it doesn't artifact.
To be sure if it wasn't because of unlocking the other 4 pipes (from 12 to 16) i reflashed the original X850PRO bios, but it's the same. I even put a fan directly over the memory (besides the Zalman VF900Cu) and it's the same.
