ATI X850 Fan control Post Pro to XTPE mod

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I recently relafshedmy bios using the instructions in the FAQ here. The last step was to use the X850 XTPE 1.6 fan control agp.bin to enable "fan control"

I am unsure if my exectations are wrong or if the last step did not work. The fan on the card seems to be in a state of idle or 100%. ATI Tool will show XX% for the fan speed but it sounds the same and temperatures do not change. It is only when it hits a set threshold that the fan roars to life at full speed.

Is something broke?

Well it can be hard to tell. Noise and temp drop may not even occure if you performed the FAQ correctly. However with an Aftermarket cooler you may be able to. However theres no harm in repeating the FAQ to make sure you have done it all correctly.

No, you can tell. Idle... full ... idle ... full.

I have done the FAQ twice.

Im may not be getting you however you may not notice any temp drop especially when using a stock cooler.

I would PM the person who created the FAQ for further help.
