    CCC still freezes on Server

    Although ATI seem to have rewritten CCC, the changes are only cosmetic: the bundle still fails to start on Windows Server 2008, which is a damn shame after 1.5 years of monthly releases.

    The device manager uninstall (then scan for hw changes) trick still works though, so on Server systems CCC runs eventually, but after each driver update the procedure should be repeated.

    Everything else seems fine and speedy on Vista/Server x64.

    Anyone getting an extremely low benchmark score on furmark 1.7 with cat9.7 compared to 9.6? My score doesn't even reach 4000 anymore on 1680x1050 no MSAA. Although, with 9.6, I was getting in the 5500+ range. Another strange thing is that Furmark isn't pushing the temperatures much anymore. Used to get around 68C with benchmark, now it is barely pushing 60C.

    the drivers wont install for me using the installer, first try i got the blue screen mentioned a few posts above me, second time the driver failed to install, as well as the 3rd time

    i JUST now installed the win7 rtm. this was the very first thing i tried to install

    i got the driver to install by forcing it using the have disk option in device manager, and one more thing i noticed, is the color saturation option is gone in this release (simliar to nvidias vibrance option) and that feature is a must for me. things look too dull without it

    im going back to 9.6, to hell with this crap

    hey thanks for that, man this new interface is garbage. digging for options in hidden menus is not the way to go ati, simplicity is key

    i may still go back to 9.6, ill see how these run for a couple days

    thanks again

    edit: refresh rate also stuck at 59, but thats been the case with every driver ive used on win7 since 9.3 i think

    for some reason my second gpu runs up to 10degrees hotter than first gpu with 9.7, even at idle.
    also i have no fan speed controll in overdrive since 9.6, last driver that had it was 9.5, not that it matters for me i use r.t.

    I like the new interface. It's very well organized and easy to use. Though it would be better if the separate sections weren't placed in a dropdown menu but horizontally in the same line as is the current drop down menu. And i miss the Crimson theme :p But oh well, you can't have everything.

    Installed without issue. Oblivion seems to run a bit smoother but it could just be the locations I've been to.

    Im getting white spots with crysis and performance way below what id expect this card to run crysis at.My gtx 260 runs crysis better.Some games fly and leave the gtx 260 for dead but others are slower.All i can think is crossfire doesn't work with some of my games.Dont like the new ccc much i have to say.

    on 9.6 and 9.7 i getting annoying lags in anno with my profile system, it's not because of low fps, it's like in far cry 2 dx10 on ati cards. Do you have the same? And textures sometimes loading very slow. :(

    Since there are basically 6 versions of Windows in use, XP, Vista, Win7 and their x86/x64 derivatives it could be helpful if people listed which OS they are using when reporting problems or improvements.
