    The reason they only do it for 4800 series im guessing is because its a new card and everyone is moaning about the heat they make so that probly turns some people off and they go buy a different card .. from nvidia or a lower ati product .. thats just a guess .. or it could be that they are getting huge amount of complaints only about the 4800 series heat

    seems a bit daft really, my x1900xt gets up to 90c without fan control, have to use ati tool. much rather just use ccc, so why exclude other cards that obviously need it!

    3870's are toasty creatures too.

    Perhaps this is a question for ATi. Send some catalyst feedback to them and see what you get for a response.:)

    C'mon guys, just download RBE and use its CCC profile editor to access fan control. 3xx0 cards supported as well. No BIOS editing/flashing necessary. :cool:
     
    erocker says thanks.

    Yeah, I introduced it - maybe a little too silently - with v1.12. :)
