As I said to others, I'm not sure this driver cleaning really works, at least not for everybody. If you have half an hour to spare better format the Win partition, reinstall Win and start over with the drivers. It's the safest way to get things done right.
Btw, here in the north winter is coming it sucks so much, but my rig will love it

Hehe, I like winter.

All seems good, the driver is installed now, I'm going to start the OCing.

You said that the ATI Card stays cold? Mine is pretty hot atm ...

With CSS, It seems i'm getting better FPS.

I'm just wondering with the ATI Tool, what exactly do i do?

Do i just press
'Find Max Core' and wait till it's finished?

Then press
'Find Max Mem' and wait till it's finished?

..

Do i have to be in a game while doing this?
Yeaaahhh!

Yup, that's about it. How ATI TOOL works:
1. After you click one of the Find Max Core or Find Max Mem it would slowly rise the freq and test it at every bin so that the Oc is safe.
2. After a while you'll see that the OC frequency doesn't really rise any more, I mean after for example it stays and it stays @xxxMHz for 5 minutes you can be preety sure that's the Max. It won't tell you that, but that is the max value. Write it down, return to stock and click to find the other max, too.
3. After you find the both max OC them both and run some loops of 3Dmark 2003 to see if it's stable.

It would be better if you don't play anything while ATI TOOL is running, althow I'm not even sure you can.

Another thing, click the "Advanced settings" tab and somewhere you should find a box called "Remove 9200, 9500, 9600 overclocking lock" Be sure to mark it, if not everything would come back to stock once you quit ATI TOOL.

Allright. Cheers.

I'm still pretty upset that i don't have the RADEON 9200 Pro, that i thought i had.. . It got my hopes up

Also, how do i set my Screen Refresh Rate with the ATI graphics card? When i try go into the Catalyst control center, it doesn't open or anything.. :/
