I dont know exactly what the dos speed is, nor do i know of a way to test it while in dos, but i can tell you, that my card gets very hot to the touch after 10 minutes in dos, the fans look to be at about 10% fan speed & dont spin up higher.
Also in windows, my Aida64 Exteme monitor lists 4 Ati Power States as Follows:
Ati PowerPlay (BIOS)
State #1 GPU: 900 MHz, Memory: 1250 MHz (Boot) <----
State #2 GPU: 900 MHz, Memory: 1250 MHz
State #3 GPU: 900 MHz, Memory: 1250 MHz (UVD)
State #4 GPU: 300 MHz, Memory: 150 MHz
So from what i see there, is that it is running full speed & volts at boot time, let me know what you think ?
I am hoping that these 4 stats can be found in the bios & the (boot) state clocks changed to the same as the clocks in state 4, because to my way of thinking, if the clocks are that low then hopefully the voltage will be less thus keeping the card cooler.
It would also be nice if we could force the fans to run at 60% while in dos too, but i have no idea if that can be done, sorry, but im no good with hacking bios's
Anyway, let me know what you find & thankyou,
