Hes running a CRT through a DVI to VGA addaptor. No real way of getting hold of a DVI TFT monitor AFAIK, enless his dell monitor is. Appatrently the artifacts were reduced buy going form cat 6.4s to 6.3. That all i can report atm, sure llwyd will post an update soon.

ATI should be releasing CAT 6.5's any day now so fingers crossed that helps.

*takes deep breath* The artifacting and screen corruption was beyond anything i have ever seen before, i had small text from the bottem left of the screen flickering in massive white letters all over the screen, i had irregular blocks of colour 'tearing' through the on screen image, had parts of the screen turning black white or inverting etc etc. The fact that this was stopped by Alt-Tabbing out and back in of the game made me conclude it was a driver problem so i switched back to 06.3 and the problem has been fixed. However i still get a verry odd 'jumpy' effect when i am coming out of a flash in the game :stickpoke . The CRT im using is quite old, so i did think of that. There is a slight horizontal banding moving up the screen which i can notice sometime. I have put this down to the same reason (as theyre following the pattern that CRTs fire their electrons). I have been leaving the AI at 'standard' as CCC warned it could create screen distortion with crossfire enable. I will have a fiddle with it now*Breaths in*

Cool mate, bit by bit we're getting there. Like Kemp said, Cat 6.5's are coming out soon and may help :)

aye i hope so. damn PCs. on a slightly off-topic/anti ATI note, by removing ATI's thermal comp on the card and adding some fairly decent stuff and upgrading the fan to a 99p akasa one i have knocked over 50*C off of load temp and around 27*C off idle temps

:eek: If you've knocked 50oc off the load temps, then it sounds like ur heatsink wasn't making proper contact...

50oc...really...r u sure? :eek:

posative. happend on the other card aswell. put a zalman vf700 on it and it took of about the same amount

Yeah the Saphire X1600pro stock HSF is *****. My old one (the one with the zalman on now) hit about 80 frequently.

It hit 80 deg C frequently :eek: After playing for how long? That can't be right, unless your HS had poor contact with the GPU in the first place, or your case simply doesn't breathe.

It was basicly down to terrible thermal compound and too lower fan speeds. AS5 + 50% stock fan speed would be ok temps wise, yet the drivers set it to 26% ide and ~36% load. Resulting in a mini oven.
