I have a question. it seems to be running cool and alright but lately its been making some funky noises. I have disconnected the fan and I still here a noise coming from it. it doesn't seem to be unstable or anything. it happens under load, when load stops the noise does as well.
I also was looking in my CCC and I see the power control setting now from what I read everywhere, everyone recommends to put it at +20 for overclocking. well mine is factory overclocked. so should I put it at 20%? or is it +20 percent in the bios?
okay so a few things I have found over the course of trying things out.
1 download the power color over clocking tool (it lets you alter the voltage. because even though they set the voltage to 1.212 its real voltage is only 1.8.
So d/l ati GPU tool and run the artifact tester and keep the power color o/c tool on so you can monitor voltage. for me to get it to the 1.212 voltage.
I have to run it at 1.251 and in the reported voltage it sits on 1.215 v and the noise has gone away. its basically under volted and was screaming for moar power!
Also check your CPU and ram's reported voltage. I had to put my DDR voltage on 1.52 to get a stable 1.5v reported voltage. and my cpu needed +.2 as well to get it to its real voltage. my system is much faster and stable now.
