Raise fan speed

Hi,please help me to raise my fan speed, 'cause I want to overclock my graphic card.
How can I enable manual fan control on ATI CCC ON ATI Radeon HD 2400.
Or a program.
Thankyou!

First the card has to support it. Also does yours have a fan? There were quite a few 2400's that came fanless. That said if it does have a fan and it is supported you will find the option here,

If the option isn't there then there is a good chance that it isn't supported. Going to have to pull the card and check how many wires there are from the fan to the card. If it is only 2 wires like this,

then there is nothing you can do as the fan itself doesn't support it.

P.S. For what it's worth overclocking that card will have little to no benefit if for no other reason that due to the 64 bit memory bus. At best you might see a 5% improvement over stock speeds.

I can't open the case,because I will loose my waranty.
p.s. the bus on my video cars is on 64 bit,my OS is on 32 bit.
I've noticed ,when I had installed the 64 bit of utimate,the games runs much better.

The memory bus on the card has nothing to do with whether you are running 32 bit or 64 bit Windows, it has to do with how fast the GPU (the video chip on the card) interacts with the memory on the card,
