    Hi Everyone,

    Well I am pretty new to OC'ing and am using ATI tool to OC my ATI Radeon 9800XT video card.

    Here is my dilemna...what temp is right?????

    When I start the Catalyst Control Center and look at the overdrive tab it says my GPU is at 61-63 degrees Celsius.

    In ATI tool....it reads at 39-42 degrees Celsius.

    Any thoughts....CCC version is 6.12 and ATI is 0.26.

    Thanks for the help!

    I doubt that CCC is wrong...
    I think its the difference in update rate.
    This happens right after running 3D.
    The temp of one is updated while the other haven't.

    Been doing some looking and even when I just immediately start the computer the CCC value is still that high....I cant believe that it is so high I think something may be incorrect...dont really know.
