    not to mention you can OC this baby now its a great OCer. My memory is running at 1100 now and the core is running 770 and it could go higher but I would have to flash to an unlocked version of bios.

    ps. let me quess you grew tired of waiting Powercolor and you flashed with Visiontek??
    the bioses are all the same because ATI themselves have made them.
    This is probably the reason that BBA cards are such great OCers.

      Yeah, I got tired of waiting. And as the update from Visiontek came with an AMD icon attached to the executable I assumed it wouldn't be anything Visiontek-specific anyway.

        Some of them were temperature related. Most things didn't work here but my card is pretty old. It's also possible that some things have changed in the meantime
        Thanks a lot for that post!!! I've been waiting for the ati devs to implement fan control and temperature monitor in fglrx without knowing it was already there!
        [email protected] ~ $ aticonfig --pplib-cmd "get temperature 0"
        Temperature for thermal controller 0 is 47.000000
        [email protected] ~ $ aticonfig --pplib-cmd "set fanspeed 0 55"
        PPLIB command execution is Successful!
        [email protected] ~ $ aticonfig --pplib-cmd "get fanspeed 0"
        Fan speed query: 
        Query Index: 0, Speed in percent
        Result: Fan Speed: 55%
        Now I can control the fan speed as I do in windows. I wish I had seen your old thread sooner.
