VC I know CV [core voltage]might help but if your going to go higher ditch the orb they suck you can get better results if you lapp it though thats a start, try clocking your VC back to stock speeds and see if that helps, you can allways find a proccesor HSF and cut it down to fit your VC that chip is the same size as your northbridge. Also you could see if your VC will support sideband and if so dissable sideband in your registry there are links to this info in the tips section that will give you more stability without a performance loss

try lowering your AGP multiplier. if youre running with 4X try setting it to 2X.
you probably wont need more cooling only because of the frequencie. lowering it to 2x will still be a lot below the 4x66.

some bios have the three different options for the AGP multiplier. firstly u better post all the hardware u own that relates to your question when asking on a thread. if you only have the option to enable or disable 4X for the AGP u better get POWERSTRIP to do that. even so, up to now if u want to make your system more stable disable AGP 4X - that may stops the system to crash. best thing is try to enable AGP 2X.

going from 4 to 2 will give you some loss in preformance I would try to dissable sideband first if its not already set that way and then as a last resort go from 4 to 2 or even 1.

when they talk about 4x and such there are refering to how many channels of information the VC is using you can find out more info at www.rojakpot.com that will explain all ofyour bios settings as well as 4x 2x ect

With my rig, once I got the agp 4x going, it only gave
about 3 or 4 points in 3dMark 2000.

It does cause Unreal to lock up.

If I disable AGP 4x in my BIOS, I get AGP2x with no
problems.

Sandra reports my AGP speed at 76 (2x 152mhz)
These settings will be way specific to your config, so
you have to play with them to see what works best for
you.....

Are you overclocking your video card ?

Is the "white stuff" speckles like snow ? If it is that is a sure sign your video memory is being clocked too fast. Download NVtweak an see what your settings are. You can also use it to set your AGP to 2X. You may have to drop the memory and core clock speeds.

If I try to OC my G2 too much it gets to the point where my frame rates drop, so when I back it off a bit they come back to normal.
