Windows 7: ATI Radeon 5450 driver on Asus EAH5450

ATI Radeon 5450 driver on Asus EAH5450

I've been using Asus EAH5450 card with the driver that comes with it. Yesterday i followed the Windows Update alert and installed the ATI Radeon HD 5450 driver. Now the device manager shows display adapter ATI Radeon HD5450. Is it ok for that?

Everything works fine so far and i understand the Asus EAH5450 actually uses the same ATI chip.

However, since i notice that my Asus EAH5450 has a cooling fan on it, while some other 5450 are "silent", i.e. with a heat sink instead of a fan. I'm wondering if a non-Asus driver would dismiss the control of the cooling fan on it.

Any suggestion? Thanks

hkwildboy, welcoem to the Seven Forums.

Asus may have made the card, but they did not write the driver. All drivers for AMD based cards come from AMD regardless of who actually made the card. It also doesn't make any difference whether the card has a fan or not, they all use the same driver.
