ATI Tray Tools (HIS x1900xt) Reading wrong Core/ Mem speed.

My video card is the HIS x1900XT IceQ3 version. The default clock is suppose to be 625 core and 1450 mem.

In addition, it seems my overclock is locked, when I move the slider, it keeps defaulting back to 500 core and 1188 mem.

How come ATI Tool and ATI Tray Tools both say 500 core and 1188 mem? How do I fix this?

I suspect that the lower clocks the Traytools are reporting are a result of 2D/3D throttling. A GPU will run at lower clocks when there is no 3D applications running, in order to save power and prolong chip life.

I would recommend you get RivaTuner to see what the 2D/3D clocks are and to see about overclocking. I've had great experiences with Rivatuner with multiple cards, including overclocking and unlocking pipes. Unfortunately I can't say how well it works with ATI because I've always had Nvidia. AFAIK it works fine with ATI.
