My System Specs

Default Preventing interference?

I've just noticed that when running F@H GPU I get a slight, but constant interference on my Forte. Right now it has one slot between itself and the video card. Before, while 2 slots away from the video card and directly above the wireless card, I didn't get interference from the video card, but I got it from my wireless card.
Right now it's a lose-lose situation. Is there any way I could stop the interference? It's all about how close everything is in relation to each other, and right now they're as spread apart as possible. Any suggestions are appreciated.

So the interference is directional? You could try wrapping up a couple layers of aluminum foil in some anti-static wrap, then sticking that between the two cards. Might help some.

Also, you could try enabling spread spectrum in your BIOS. It's usually disabled to possibly give an edge in overclocking, but enabling it might reduce interference. Worth a try, anyway.
