how do I change the fan speed? It's for my sig rig. The option is not in CCC (i'm using 10.12)
Thanks to whomever helps.

Open CCC, click on graphics tab.

At the top click "Enable ATI Overdrive'

Down by the bottom there is an 'Enable Manual Fan Control' box, click it.

Adjust as needed.

You can also install MSI Afterburner, a pretty nice mod tool for your card.

In Linux, dude. I know how to change the fan speeds in Windows, I have it nicely configured.
I have looked all around 10.12 for Linux, and I have no fan control options.

The program you want is a combo. You need "lmsensors" installed and working to read fata such as voltages, temps, and fan speed. Then you need "pwmconfig" to control fan speed. Here's some data
http://linux.die.net/man/8/fancontrol

and here's a tutorial

https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Fan_Speed_Control

Note: There are lots of posts in Ubuntu forums but you have to wade through a lot of fumbling and all you have to do for Ubuntu is install the same things but with Synaptic.

Would those sensors even pick up my card? The drivers are sort of working, but they have a thing at the bottom right that says "Unsupported Hardware".

Also, if I boot into Linux with my overclock, X crashes/fails to initiate. It's a completely stable overclock, too.

I don't know for certain. I just know there are only a few manufacturers of sensors that everyone uses so it is worth a try. I am aware that ATi drivers are just beginning to get decent so it;s anybody' guess right now. You already have a "No" so why not try for a "Yes"? It only takes a few minutes to install and setup "lmsensors" and test it. If it doesn;t work you've only lost a few minutes. If it works, install "pwmconfig" and you might be golden.

So does it boot when it is not overclocked? In both cases (assuming it sometimes works) I would read "/var/log/Xorg.0.log" since it should list what failed. BTW how do you know it is a completely stable overclock? Have you torture tested it? or just assume so because Windows will boot?

Does aticonfig not list parameters to change fan speeds? Type aticonfig on a terminal and it will return all the config. options you can use. There are also a few GUIs out there that plug into Overdrive and let you change things. One I link to in my ATI Overclocking guide in my sig. There is a newer one that you can get here (supporting discussion here).

I'll try it. I'm having some Flash issues. I'm about to install FFb4 (using Chrome atm).

It boots when it's not overclocked. I've also noticed that Black Ops crashes when I'm overclocked. I've played Crysis for hours on end, and there hasn't been a single issue. >.>
I kind of find that last bit offensive. I know how to determine stability. In fact, my definitely of stability is probably a lot more strict than half the people at this site or more. I've done several torture tests. This cooler has been awesome so far.

I just typed in aticonfig and this is what I got:
Code:
bassdoken@Aether:~$ aticonfig
aticonfig: No supported adapters detected
I have no access to Overdrive.

There is an old Sicilian saying that "Only your true friends will tell you when your face is dirty" It is not meant to offend. It refers to care and respect that friends would prefer to look in the mirror and wash their face rather than to continue to walk around looking dirty.

I seriously think you might want to re-examine your definition even if half the peeps here are even less strict. If your box boots Linux when it is not OC'd but crashes on some game or games something seems off. It may not necessarily be the overclock itself but RAM or other BIOS settings. How long and what kind of torture did you run with no errors? Overnight?

You certainly don't have to justify your definitions to me anymore than you should be offended by my questions. I had and have no way of knowing you or how adept and discriminating you are. All I really know is that you at least have enough independence to try Linux. Kudos. I am just offering questions to ask yourself. Do with them as you see fit. I sincerely hope it all comes together for you, but I would think you wouldn't have asked for help if there was no problems. There is no shame in that. Nobody knows it all.
