My system wont OC with my 8500le in, but will when i use the o/b graphics.

I have an a7n266-vm board which ive done a 'solder mod' on to open up the fsb settings , i have a duron 1.3 which ive had up to 1.46 so far quite easily, but as soon as i put in the gfxs card it goes down to 1303Mhz, regardless of the FSB settings ??

Any ideas?

edit: just got the duron up to 1489Mhz and the cpu temp hasnt changed one bit , 41 deg,
I have to say there doesnt feel much performance differnce to me using ordinary windows stuff and surfing. i'll try 1600 MHz
