    Hi,

    Much thanks for this great prog RBE.
    I have one question regarding the temp table in RBE.
    I have saved my bios from my video card (Sapphire HD5770 1GB) and when I open this bios in RBE I see the next table:

    These temps in combination with the fan speeds it's not what I get when I monitor the card in HWINFO or MSI afterburner.
    At 82 degrees my fan runs normally 46%. In the RBE-table is the value 50%.
    It isn't a very big difference but a difference and I don't trust it.

    When I play battlefield the card will be very hot, I want to cool it down and therefore I use MSI afterburner to let the fan running faster at high temperatures. But it is nice to edit the Bios settings and I don't have to look after it.
    I hope for a nice explanation on this issue before I'm going flash my bios

    Thanks in advanced.

    Known issue, the catalyst driver overwrites the BIOS fan settings. Roam the RBE forum to find more.

    So is it still a possibility we could find a way around this? I need my fan profile to keep my card cool but currently I have to use Afterburner to make it boot on start up, and that usually causes lots of problems.

    I don't see a way around it as long as the driver ignores the BIOS settings. Does anyone?
