Windows 7: fan speed control for ati card

you can overclock fine with att. i can see the calculate button, and mine is greyed out too - i've never really noticed it tbh, and don't know what it calculates.

to overclock, slide your slider, then hit the 'apply button' at the bottom right - then save your overclocked profile, making sure you have the 'include clocks...' button checked. your saved profile name should now include some numbers relating to your tweaked speeds.

i've not had ccc for years, and whilst i haven't had to overclock my new card yet, i have used att to clock all previous ati cards with no problems.

I've never used ATT before. Prior to this beta, it was too much messing about to get it work. Now that it works easily with x64, all I can say is 'awesome' - there are heaps of extra options to play with

I never had any real problems with CCC, apart from multiple installation issues and the fact that 95% of games ignore CCC settings

the software is good for lots of other features too, but i won't go into them here...

So do you just download and install the 'driver only' portion or do you download the entire version and just disable CCC from starting?

i just download the driver myself.

i decided years ago that i didn't need ccc at all.

i ain't changed my mind yet!

well i can't tell you all about it - i can only give a very quick and simple start:

overclocking a graphics card is making it run at a higher speed than it was designed for.

the advantage is that you get better performance in games, but the disadvantages include more heat and less stability.

you really need to do some more research before you start overclocking - there is some more information here.

you have a mobility graphics card? is that a laptop?

you may not have much success overclocking that card - laptops do get hot quickly, and your games may crash.

lol, Loving the fact you all use software, I have a 4870 and it changed the speed of the fan itself. I used a Tweek tool and changed the Bios and set the fans how i felt it needed. And I must say my card is silent and sits at 49 deg.

I used steps like every 5 deg it got 10% faster. Till it gets too like 80 deg then its Full blast. But it never gets there.....

sorry i was writing my post above while you posted.

i don't think att won't run on your laptop - it's really designed for desktop graphics cards.

have a look at this thead on the att forums. the software author says "ATT has very limited support for mibility chips."

LOLz, I installed another one, and I got blue screen of death, had to start safe mode and uninstall it. Now my laptop is good again

My laptop gets hot too quickley, if I make a render or something like that, it gets to 75șC ~ 80șC... I wanted to speed my fan and set up a profile for it to run better and for it to cool my computer.. it gets really hot.. can you help?
