Lightbulb A Sticky for Everyone Who Owns an ATI Video Card

Hello all,
I was recently having some video card overheating issues with my ATI x850XT while playing high demanding games. The computer would beep at me, and the FPS would 'die' after a few minutes playing CounterStrike Source. I am here to report that I have found the answer and I'd bet that this solves a lot of others problems.

The fan speed for my ATI card was set to 5%. Out of the box, no tweaking. 5%...

If the fan is running at 5%, then how could you cool your card?! The solution is to download ATI Tray Tools Thanks to liondad for that one. Once in Tray Tools, go to hardware, overclocking, then click the fan tab and away you go!

I would bet that this one post solves quite a few problems. Moderators, I ask that you somehow get this information out there, in the Gaming Forum as well as the Hardware Forum. Thanks.

The link to my original problem

My X1300 Pro was running very, very hot (70s+ Celsius idle) and I downloaded the ATI Tray tool and noticed that my fan was set to run at 50% up to 80 C, which didn't make much sense to me. That cooled it down, but updating drivers caused a drop of about 20 C! Make sure you also update your drivers, it can help.

Thanks for posting the tip.

I believe so. It doesn't seem to be compatible with Windows 95, 98, or ME, though. 64-bit OSes are supported.

Cool opon your video problem

you may be having a hardware conflict between your nvidia motherboard mcp
chipset and the ati x850xt this is caused by the two opposite companys if this is the problem you should try to use another card other then ATI

Vista Ultimate
ATI Radeon X1300 512MB

Results from attempting to start tool...


...not working here.

I would bet it's trying to read my Hauppauge TV card as the video card, all the zeros on the address errors
seems to point to this.
