I just bought a powercolor x1950 pro and it seems to be running fine (but noisily). After installing ati tray tools I could not check the temp of the card or play around with the fan speed. It doesnt even detect the temp probe or fan control ability. The same happens for ati tool (theres no fan menu). This card does have fan control doesnt it? In any case I know I should be able to monitor temps. The fan is running full speed constantly I think (since it never changes sound and is quite noisy), so I guess its as cool as it can get, but I dont want it running full in windows. Any ideas? Havent tried CCC yet, since I DL'd the 7.1 drivers without it. Surely I dont need CCC (please say no).
Ive got a MSI x1950 pro - I hava temperature displays in both ATI tool and the catalist drivers. the card actualy has 2 temperature that is displayed - the GPU temperature and an separate temp chip - I imagine that the manufacturer s can omit the temp chip but as far as i know the gpu temp sensor should be monitorable
