    first one of these i came across was ati tray tools since it came with the omega drivers that i use to replace the catalyst. i heard of ati tool and how everyone used it so i got it as well. Now heres the problem. I found that the ati tool can rase the core clock speed to 400+ via slider, but ati tray can only go to 375. I used the find max options on Ati tool and got 430/230 and want to have that for my OC setting. I dont want to stop using Ati Tray because it has many more options than ati tool, or from what i can see but i can only get the core to 375 if i stick with it. I've had the ati tool's 430 core speed override to ati tray but it happened once and i'm not sure how to repeat it. so basically i want to know if theres a way to know which one is working when i use them. Ati tool 430? or trays 375, how or if i can bring ati trays 375 to 400+ useing Ati Tool, or if i shouldnt use ati tray tool and why.Thanks in advance.

    You should probably decide on one tool or another, I would suggest ATI Tool. What features does ATI tray have that ATI Tool lacks? ATI Tool is a lot more powerfull than it looks at first glance.

    Have you checked out the settings tab in ATI Tool? There are options for Temperature monitoring, fan control, and memory timings. It even displays core type, how many pixel pipelines, and even fuse info if you hold shift and left click on settings. There are quite a few other little options that are quite handy also.

    hmm. maybe i have a older version. i never saw any of that. what version do you all use?

    Edit. I have a 9550 with no fan so i dont get any temp monitering which I would love =/. and tray tool have some neat features like auto overclocking which sets the clocks to one speed in 2d and another for 3d (desktop -> game) which is cool. and basically everything in advanced desktop options packed into a menu for easy access. i must of havent seen any of these options, any where i can see hotkeys etc. options that arnt normally shown

    You should use what you feel the most comfortable with. However, just to let you know ATI tool has 3D application detection as well.
