SOmething is seriously going crazy with my X850 pro

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I've been playing around with overclocking my X850 pro, and just now I flashed the bios to x850xt, it started fine and it was cool (60 degrees), I went into ATItool and started the 3d cube thing and it was going 320+ FPS... but it said it was only running 12 Pipelines, I closed it, opened it again and it's running about 30fps at about 70 degrees with 16 pipelines (which is how many FPS I was getting normally... 30) what is going on?! am I doing something horribly wrong here??!
Thanks in advance....

ATI Tool is probably bugging somehow.
Just flash to x850xt and let it be.
As long as your temps don't reach 90C, your safe.

If you really think that there is a problem. Download 3Dmark06 or aquamark3 and run a test on your x850pro 12 pipelines and then your flashed x850xt 16 pipelines. Compare those results.
Rig I might buy
