ATI Catalyst Control is crap for Overclocking - Page 2

post #11 of 26

Found this:

Quote:
...ATI added an overclocking protection in the Catalyst drivers. When you set clocks, they reset back to default after a few seconds or when a game is loaded.
There are modded drivers out there (including our softmod drivers) which circumvent that lock, ATITool can even remove it at runtime, but many people would prefer to use ATI's original drivers - that's where the Bios flash described here comes into play.
A big PFFFFFFFTTTTTTT.....

In my opinion the card is mediocre at best but that's besides the point. I have never heard of catalyst stopping you from overclocking with thier drivers. why would they put in an overclocking feature if that was the case?

You might want to give ATI tool a go. you can find it here:http://www.overclock.net/downloads/138452-atitool.html

Ok, chill...

ATITool is a great tool. Very powerful for tweaking your card to the detail. Nothing really beats it.
