Hi all. Just completed a brand new build. All parts are brand new except for the ATI branded 4870X2 I purchased used locally. Here's my system specs: ATI branded 4870X2 Gigabyte GA-790XTA-UD4P AMD Phenom II X4 965 BE (stock, no oc) 2x2GB G.Skill DDR3 1600 OCZ Stealth Xstream Pro Modular 700W PSU Antec 900 Case (two front intake fans, one rear exhaust, one giant top fan) The system booted up and installed Win7 64bit with absolutely no problems whatsoever. Immediately installed chipset drivers and CCC 9.12 + hotfix. Prior to the hotfix on 9.12, my GPU temp readings in CCC were 65C and 85C at idle. After the hotfix, my GPU temps are now 0C (that's right, zero... I assume from the power saving shutting down the other core in 2d mode) and 85C. Have yet to run any games as I'm afraid of melting the card. I did run 3DMark Vantage and scored roughly 14500 which is normal from what I can determine. I wasn't able to check the temps during full load and didn't want to re-run the test after I realized temps were so high. I've put in hours of reading and am seeing causes all over the board...a bug in the Catalyst drivers that requires starting a game and exiting, manually setting fan speeds with hotkey profiles, etc. I plan on trying switching to 9.8 drivers this evening as I've read on the ATI forums from users that this seems to run well and keep temps under control. My question is this... what is the latest info on this problem and what is the agreed upon solution? Is there any hope for 10.1 drivers to address the issue? Is manually setting fan speed profiles the only solution? Thanks in advance for your time.
