i have ati firegl v7200.problem is a artifacts.when ever i run 3d applications or games like resident evil 5 it stars making alot of artifacts.after that game cant be played.then i use atitool to speed up gpu fan.i increase fan speed to 100%.(guys i didnt overclock it).then i run game i saw its effecting.but not killing artifacts completely.then i figure temprature of gpu.so if i run normal gpu fan speed temrature stands idle at 67c.and if run 100% gpu fan speed then temprature come down to 56c idle.in runing 3d applications such as resident evil 5 gpu temprature rise to 85c to 90c in normal gpu fan speed.and i run resident evil 5 in 100% gpu fan speed temrature rise to 77c.im having artifacts even when i run bionic commando temp of gpu at 70c.i have applyed new thermal past,cleaned gpu fan but its not effective.
