    When I run the max tester my screen goes black for a minute then my pc reboots. Not sure if this is normal? Isnt it supposed to back off before that happens? Temps never gotten very high. Running 3 intake and 1 large exhaust besides pwr supply.
    CPU is overclocked as well.

    Asus K8N
    Athlon 2800 socket 754 (overclocked to 240 x 9)
    2 gig of ram
    ATI x700 pro AGP 1.6v

    I dont see what is unclear about it. Its in the atitool section isnt it?
    When running the max finders my pc will power off before it completes.

    Max Finder never "completes" it will just go until that happens or until artifacts and such happen...

    I have the same, so after the screen goes off and system stops do I have to start PC up again and put the ATI setting at what the slider was before it all went black? I thought for some reason the slider would go back down and stop at the most stable setting.
    Thanx

    Eventually ATITool will detect an artifact or two, and stop increasing the core speed. It will then lower the clock a few MHz(1MHz = One million cycles per second) every time a new artifact is detected, getting closer to the final frequency that it decides is the highest stable frequency
