Hey guys, I've been working on trying to get rid of Artifacts with the Intel 3000 HD GPU. After trying various so-called solutions(Updating FakeSMC, removing FakeSMC plugins and so on) I finally I found a solution that I least suspected.
To fix this you can do one of two things:
1. This is the solution I used, install Fan Control 1.2. Doesn't really do much as far as actually controlling our fans but it eliminates the artifacts 100%
Here is a link to that: http://www.macupdate...137/fan-control
It installs a Fan Control Daemon and Fan Control PrefPane.
2. This is one I haven't personally tried but has been reported as working as well, SMCPing Daemon
What you do is extract this Zip file and place it in /Library/StartupItems, reboot and thats it.

@Mackyreddy & Doix: Might want to add this to your packs so people can get the solution in an all in one package. Thanks!
Just had to share this as artifacts were driving me crazy and prevented me from using OS X Lion as my main OS. Now if some genius would just make something equivalent to Bumble Bee on linux for OS X, we'd have one fine HackBook Pro!
Take care all.
