    Hi there,

    i know i have a "one-post" account, but i don't want to share Trojans or anything else.

    I made a little Tool for ATi Overdrive, to Lock or Unlock it, so no-one will need to Reinstall CCC to "lock" it again.

    Screenshot:
    [​IMG]

    I hope it will help someone ;)

    Note: You need at least .Net Framework 2.0 to run this Little Tool
    it's written in CSharp

    Supportet Operating Systems: WinXP/Vista and 7

    Myself has unlocked it, i want'd to change my Cooler-Speed but it doesn't worked and I searched for a Solution to Lock it so i was searching registry entries, Now i found the one Entry wich controls the statement in CCC.

    That's the Reason why^^

    I don't know if anyone will need it, but if.... he can't do anything stupid in the registry.

    I found that sometimes an aftermarket/3rd party overclocking solution/program will have problems with Overdrive unlocked. :)

    Don't be a stranger is a saying - in this case it means we hope you stick around on TPU (instead of posting this and then dissapearing). Your sentences are very good btw :)

    Nice work empath. I've always thought an option to lock Overdrive should have been included in CCC. I see this being very useful.

    Can someone explain why you'd want to lock or even unlock CCC Overdrive?
    What scenarios would you use this ?

    Hmm... i guess that some people will need it when they will need to use theyr warranty but... yeah, its not that hard to just reinstall the catalyst all over again. anyway its good to have tools like that, it cant harm anybody right? :)
    I also think that when the overdrive is unlocked it could mess overcloking sometimes.

    brilliant software man, I remember one case when I required it greatly. Using overdrive(after unlocking), my idle clocks refused to go below 400/900 which was really heating up my card for no reason.

    FOr such situations, this tool will be a lifesaver

    Well, guess i was right. CCC can mess up overclocking abilities.

    My friends 6950 won't downclock on idle when it's overclocked with afterburner. I might recommend him use this to see if locking ccc helps.

    Just so you know it requires restart to apply the change. (or it did for me)
