When i first softmodded my 9800se 256-bit i got white dots everywhere in most games, mainly doom 3 to the point it was unplayable. Soo i and was tryin everything i could possibly thing of before giving up> Finally it workd when i pumpd up the volt from 1.5 to 1.7 in my bois for the agp and i give the softmod another try. I still get white dots but its soo small that you really dont notice it . I'm just wondering why pumping up the volts help fix my artifact problem soo MUCH!!!!
