I think some games have the option for this but I don't know if AMD gives you that option. :/

Oh, and PS your temps are fine, better than my own by far. When I game I'm usually at 85C - 87C with a fan speed that is as loud as i want it ( around 65 -75% I think, I use a custom fan curve...)

Something rather strange just happened , i was playing SC II HOTS , man there were load of zergs , literally load ! Over 100 - 200 + units....
So thing is , normally in the game my GPU runs at 99% Usage , but when there was this many units , the Usage drops to 30+ % very weird....FPS definitely drops , its around 25 - 30 FPS , but when i brought them into war , it was ok , could kept it on 20 - 30 FPS , no extra dropping , so no lag there luckily ! SC 2 HOTS really eat FPS now , i have everything on ULTRA , i remember back then in WOL i could push out more FPS compared to now...maybe Drivers aren't optimized yet.

Yeah we do have VSYNC in CCC , it's pretty simple only 4 options

1) Always OFF
2) OFF , unless application specifies
3) ON , unless application specifies
4) Always ON

That's all.

I have it set to default , i believe it's either option 2 / 3 but usually i have it OFF in game.
Except certain games , no matter what i do it doesn't off , like Skyrim , Mass Effect 3 , but so far as i said on top , this 2 games no matter what happens , the FPS never dops terribly or least not that till the point i can actually see the quite sensitive , but TBH it's quite obvious when your game runs at constant 60 FPS , if it does drops to 30 FPS , even our human eyes couldn't see if it's around 30 FPS , but i could tell the difference , when i look up and i saw yup it drop down below 60 and down to 30 FPS , that's why it annoys me , i can catch the difference....if i can't see it at all , i won't mind having VSYNC turning ON 24/7....

About the fan speed , i too use custom curve , with MSI Afterburner....what GPU you have ??
Also no one really answered me this question. If i want a custom curve , must i keep the program running at all time ? Because if i turn off MSI Afterburner ( CCC never runs in my background anymore too ) it just reverts back to the default auto fan setting....but if i have it on manual setting like 50% constant no change no matter what the temp , i turn off MSI Afterburner , the speed does stays on 50%

But this couldn't work for custom fan curve settings mellowsmiley.gif pretty lame !
