I read something about that earlier today.
Someone posted an article about it on these forums.

My board must be too cheap.
It only has UMA or Disable.

I'm too paranoid to overclock my system.
I've only had these new parts for a few days and I don't want to risk cooking them.
I reinstalled my NVIDIA GeForce 8500 GT card and disabled the on-board graphics.
My WEI memory score increased to 7.4 (from 5.9)
