Ok ok Im hear to help ya

ATItool requires a special atitool gt edition, its the only one that supports the gt (voltage, temps(core, voltage reg's, ambient) fan speeds, etc). Its great. I'll post a link later, for now you'll have to google "atitool gt" .
When you change frequencies you might notice some little artifacts on the screen, just refresh the screen and they'll go away (they will not show up during games, THESE are DIfferent from regular artifacts).

If you just want a fan controller, you can also just use rivatuner, also a great OC'ing tool/fan controller.

Turn the fan on like 90% and it will help tons and not be very loud at all, certainely more quiet than the xt cooler. Also, the threshold for temps on the 1900 series is really high, like upper 90C's or more. So dont stress about high temps too much.

Good luck, if you have more questions just ask.

Btw, you do know there is a x1900xt 256mb version for like 240$ out now right?

I cant find atitool gt anywhere.

As for rivatuner, i didnt look for it, but in reading around some other forums i did find this "ATI Tray Tools". It recognizing my card atleast, and the fan adjustment is working. I need to mess with it more later, im busy with other things at the moment. let me know if u find a link to the ATI Tools for the GT.

As for a x1900xt for 240, that saddens me... lol i got this GT for $200 tho

UPDATE: Used this "ATI Tray Tools" program to adjust fan speed on my x1900gt. Went from 61c idle @ 2707rpm to 49c @ 5506rpm. The fan is still only at 80% max speed. BIG diffrence imo.

By the way, this card is not OC'ed yet.

Truth is if you had researched the card fully before buying, you would probably not of been disappointed since you would have known what to expect.

Also if you think the X1900 GT has a bad single slot cooler, your lucky you didn't get an 7600 GT or a 7900 GT those are even noiseier and cool less.

Upgrading the cooler is your best bet by far, and shouldn't cost much at all.

It also allows you to re-apply the right thermal paste (AS5 or equivalent).

I was going to suggest the Accelero as well, but KSimp88 beat me to the punch (a few days ago no less!)
