    I use powerstrip - it works fine.
    there are also a couple of more ATi specialized ones available, like Radeonator or Radtweaker - www.Rage3D.com has links

    I know that one works, but I'd rather not have to buy a tweaker--unless I'm wrong about it. I'll be checking out Rage3D here. Thanx.

    Okay, got the 6094's and OC'd the Radeon to 290/315. I can't get the core to remain stable any higher, but I have a feeling I can push the RAM a little more.

    Anyway, my 3DMark 2001SE score is 9952. I want to break 10k, but I don't know if I will or not. Sooo close.

    that's still a nice score - but I know what you mean, I was stuck in the mid-to-high 9000's for quite a while too, until some of the faster drivers started coming out

    Yeah, just have to wait on drivers. Oh, well, this is the fastest box I own by a wide margin. Hell, I have the two fastest machines in the house anyway out of 7 :geek:

    the 6102 driver's are out - they might get you the extra 48 points your looking for...they're beta's - I haven't really investigated them though since I'm happy withe the 6094's right now - and I really don't have time to test out every beta that comes along.
    Rage3D has a link - they also have links to some 3rd party modified drivers if you're feeling especially brave.:eek:

    I might try it out. This isn't my main rig anyway, so if it screws up Windows--oh, well.

    Well, I've done a clean install of XP (something happened to come up hosed, and I was planning on doing this anyway) and have got the card up to 290/317 (no artifacting yet) and I finally broke the 10k mark. 10,028 is my final answer. I'm gonna start tweaking around with my memory settings and see what I can get with them. So far so good. I did keep the 6094's though as they seem to be fine.

    I just happened to stumble accross this article - it shows how to mod the Vcore & Vmem on Radeon8500's - using only a pencil - appearantly a significant portion of Radeon LE's are purposely supplied with a low voltage - I suppose so that they won't outperform the more expensive Retail versions.
    A custom bios flash utility is available too - I might give it a try myself when I get a chance - should help increase the OC by a few MHz.

    I'm not getting any artifacting with the RAM now...I'll consider it since I've done the other "pencil trick" on athlons and durons...can't be much harder here.
