    Does ATi Tool really enable Adaptive AA?

    Under the driver tweaks section there is an option for Adaptive AA. I don't have CCC installed so I've been using it to enable AAA. Does it work because I don't know if I'm seeing a difference. Chainlink fences in HL2, for instance, look great; but I can't really tell if the AAA is running, I...

    "Use manual only" display option in CP?

    My screen flickers when I go to change settings. It used to do this with CCC and I am now using CP and the problem persist. However, with CCC there was an easy way to fix it you would go to the "display options" tab, select "use manual only." Then the problem would be fixed. I've looked through...

    What's going on with my clocks (X1800XT)?

    Okay, here's how I currently have my situation: I have the clock adjusting program disabled, and I use ATITool .25 Beta 14 to set my clocks. Everything works all well and fine, but I've been having some weird problems lately. My clocks sometimes (seemingly at random) drop down to 475/600 (I'm...

    ATITool Help

    I have an X1800XT 512MB card and I want to really overclock it. I use ATITT now but it doesn't have the voltage options. I went to DL ATITool and there seems to be a few different versions floating around out there. Which is the latest and/or best to use with an X1800XT? Also, could anyone tell...

    My dilema

    Modified Drivers

    Who uses modified drivers? Like Omega or NGO? I just downloaded the latest NGO drivers based on 6.3, I just ran a quick 3dMark test and I am up a few tens of points so I'll keep them less I find some in-game problems. Just wanted to know who else uses modified drivers and if there's ever been a...

    Thermal Pad

    Just wondering, how bad is the thermal pad that comes pre-applied on heatsinks compared to AS5. Building a system for a friend, he won't be OCing much if at all and wanted to know if it was even worth my time. It's an Freezer 64 Pro.

    Best heatsink that is easy to install?

    What is the best heat sink that is easy to install. I had, let's say "problems" with my typhoon, and although I am extremly happy with it, I do not feel like doing it again with my new(er) system. So what is a simple-to-install HS that will be significantly better than the stock. I am looking to...

    Some CCC Q's

    I finally decided to bite the bullet and install .Net for CCC. I've been using the control panel forever but I wanted to see what CCC was like, so with my update to 6.2 (from 5.13), I went with CCC. My main reason for the switch is my upcoming CrossFire rig, I wanted to become familar with CCC...

    RD580, when?

    Does anyone know when we will see the RD580 chipset on consumer motherboards? I want to recycle my X850XT PE into a CrossFire rig and I want to know if I should hold out until their next chipset.

    How can I do this?

    I want to colorize words into my side window so they are still transparent. My first thought was spray paint, but I figured that would be opaque and probably wouldn’t work the best on Plexiglas. Here's a pic of what I am trying to describe, I am not that good with PS but it came out alright. And...

    VPU recovery?

    How do I turn this off. I know I've seen the option somewhere, I thought it was control panel but I've looked through that twice and haven't found it. Then I realized, I saw it back when I was using 5.12 or 5.11. Did they take the option out of 5.13? Or did I just see it somewhere else and can't...

    X850XT PE: tad problemo OCing

    Alright, do I was trying to raise my score in 3dmark05 with my X850XT PE (rest of rig in sig). Stock I got 7235.

    How is this stepping?

    I bought a spare Opteron 148 last month, and decided I am going to use it in a new build. I really don't know how this stepping is though so if anyone how has heard of it or who has it give me a heads up on what to expect that would be great. It is a CABYE 0543

    Need some help

    I've read the stickies, now I just need some help deciding on what I should buy. I am going to try out a dual card solution for the first time (CrossFire) and figured it would be a fine time to experiment with water cooling aswell. I don't want to spend too much money, but my budget is pretty...
