Just in case anybody didn't know. The latest "stable" (non beta) version of ATi tool is 0.26 and was released on the 8th December 06 (yesterday).

Available from www.techpowerup.com or at the bottom of my own freeware page here.

Based on my experience, this version might not actually be "stable"... See this post.

LOL, I've never experienced any so-called unstable versions of it.

Yep, well, that's just what they call it on www.techpowerup.com. "Latest stable version"...

Having tried this version now though, I have to say that it isn't picking up on the artefacts caused when I o/c my X800Pro. I can see the artefacts on the fluffy cube, but the program doesn't stop o/c'ing when they appear...

I know my GPU can o/c to about 570MHz before it produced major artefacts, but this version of ATi Tool takes the core over the 570MHz threshold, even though artefacts are clearly visible on the fluffy cube.

I'd check this version out properly before allowing it to auto-find your card's o/c limits, because on my system at least (using the ATi 6.11 drivers) this version of ATi Tool doesn't stop o/c'ing when artefacts start to appear...

And yes, the detect artefacts slider is set to the higher detection/lower overclock setting, so it should definitely be detecting the artefacts and preventing the o/c from going higher....

Don't leave this version unattended in find max core/mem until you see for sure that it is working for you, as this might not be isolated to my system only.

With my old ATi card, I used to find the previous "stable" version (0.24) worked just fine. This new version is definitely not stopping it's auto-overclocking when it detects artefacts though; even large/numerous artefacts are being ignored and the frequencies unendingly increased... I might take this version off of my site and replace it with 0.24. At least I know that definitely worked, at least for me.

Please do be careful with this version in "find max" mode. It's best to look for artefacts yourself when overclocking and stop the program when you see them. I don't think it would be a good idea to rely on this version of ATi Tool to stop it's self from overclocking, unless you've seen it work properly first.
