    I've just gotten an XFX Radeon 5870 and installed the Cats 10.1 and ATi Tray Tools v1.6.9.1472. Everything seems to be fine except the clock readings are off.

    My BIOS GPU = 850.00 and my BIOS MEM = 1200.00, but the Current GPU = 157.00 and the Current MEM = 300.00.

    If I overclock the card to the default BIOS settings, my machine hangs.

    The voltage is set to 0.950 (with the option to change it to 1.175).

    How can I get the clocks read / overclock properly? Does this have anything to do with powerplay? Or is there something i'm missing in order to get ATT working properly with the 5870?

    I appreciate the assist. ;)

    That is Powerplay. :)

    This might be a very n00bish question, but as i've not encountered this before...how do I disable it?

    And once disabled, should I place the voltage, from 0.950, to 1.175 if I want to overclock? It's safe, I assume?

    This is your 2D clocks with lower voltage.
    BIOS GPU = 850.00 and my BIOS MEM = 1200.00 - this is 3D clock with higher voltage. If you do not intended to overclock manually just do not touch clocks :) Catalyst will raise clocks when you start game and lower them back when you do not need 3D.

    Thanks for the reply, Ray.

    I actually want to manually overclock....I create my own profiles for low clocks and high clocks. How can I O/C like I did with my previous 4870?

    Well, when I enter the overclock section of ATT, I see the clocks set at 157:300.....if I increase the sliders to match 850:1200, my machine hangs.

    you must increase the voltage first.
