Artifacts visible to me, but not to ATI Tool!?

    I just purchased an ATI X850 XT (AGP), and when I got home I set about testing and benchmarking. The first thing I did after installing the newest catalyst 5.13 drivers was install ATITool 0.25 Beta 11. I've had great success using ATITool in the past on my previous card, a 9800 Pro.

    Anyway, a strange occurance took place when I ran the first 'find max core' test. It went all the way up to 580 Mhz without detecting ANY artifacts, and I started to see some weird yellow fuzzy-like border appear around the cube, so I aborted the test. I checked the log afterwards and confirmed there were no reported artifacts. Also, I had temperature monitor reporting every 3 seconds and it never got above 63C.

    What's up with that? I've never seen any artifacts in ATITool other than white pixels, and I've never seen ATITool NOT see the artifacts when they're there.

    Quick system specs- Intel P4 2.4C @ 3.0Ghz on DFI Lanparty PRO875B. 1 Gig of Corsair 3200 DDR mem. Win XP pro

    Thanks in advance for the help!

    You can change how ATItool handles the artifacts with the slider at the bottom of this screen

    all the way to the left makes ATItool lower the clockspeed during the Find Max scans when any artifact appears.

    The more you move it to the right, the more lenient ATItool will be in allowing the clock speed to go up or remain the same even if artifacts appear.
