@nick & senses: yeah, maybe it is the CPU, then...wow, I can't believe 34Mhz makes that huge of a difference in graphics appz...
@senses: yes, exactly...3dmark05 is only a litmus test to make certain that the overclock won't crash immediately; I always advocate further testing, although I prefer to do it by just playing games since sometimes ATItool says there are artifacts when you don't see any in-game (at least in my experience)...I've had overclocks that were quite stable in games with no artifacts, but ATITool says there are problems...I assume it was developed for this reason, and is just very, very sensitive...it is a good tool for those of you out there who want 100% rock-solid stability at all times, though!
@TexaStang: I have no idea...I think I burned the .ISO with UltraISO, but I can't remember exactly...try this, maybe...I think there's a free download:http://www.ezbsystems.com/ultraiso/download.htm
Try the following once you've downloaded and installed UltraISO:
ALTERNATIVE METHOD TO BURN BOOT CD:
1. Install UltraISO from the site above.
2. Download this file:http://dodownload.filefront.com/5099...0bcfcbd65fe122
3. Download and extract the .iso inside this .rar file:http://dodownload.filefront.com/5098...0bcfcbd65fe122
4. Run UltraISO and load the 7900BOOT.iso...all the files to be burnt should appear in the right-hand window, now.
5. Across the top menu (starts with 'FILE' etc.) you will see a function called 'Bootable'...left-click on this and select 'Load Boot File'...navigate to and select the other file you downloaded (the .bif file)...nothiing will appear to happen, but don't worry.
6. Click on the Burn Disc icon and burn the sucker.
7. Go through the tutorial above, whacking F12 & choosing option #2, etc.
I can't see any reason why this wouldn't work!
EDIT: Oh, I guess you figured it out while I was still posting...dang...I'll put this on the first post just in case, though...
