Seems there is an important patch for 4800 Series!

3) 4850 run too hot but silent! How I can change 4850 fan speed? I dont like 95C at all!! :banghead:

4) for overclocking my 4850 I should DL and install AMD Overdrive utility?

Thanks a lot for your reply :rolleyes:

1. Use Catalyst Software Suite version 8.8. (The latest drivers available)

2. No!:)

3. The answer: http://forums.techpowerup.com/showthread.php?t=64267
*Rivatuner 2.10 will be here next week, perhaps as soon as Monday.

4. Overdrive is for overall AMD system tuning, overclocking is built into Catalyst Control Center. To take it further than CCC will let you, you currently need to use AMD GPU Tool as explained in the link for answer #3.

buy this cooler and all your trouble will go away. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16835106112

If you wan to change the fan speed of your 4850/4870, etc then you could do the following.
-Start up Cat
-Unlock CCC's Overclocker
-review all you settings to make sure thats how you want to save them
-click on the profile tab and select Profile Manager
-select the items you want to include in your profile (3D is a must)
or
-choose "This profile includes: all cat control settings"
-Give your profile a name and save it
-open up explorer and go to: C:\Documents and Settings\your name\Local Settings\Application Data\ATI\ACE
-Starting with Cat 8.7 the folder is now located at: C:\Documents and Settings\your name\Local Settings\Application Data\ATI\ACE\Profiles
-you should find the profile you saved
-open it up with notepad, once you do you should find the following:

Quote:
<Feature name="FanSpeedProtocol_0">
<Property name="FanSpeedProtocolProperty" value="Percent" />
</Feature>
<Feature name="FanSpeedAlgorithm_0">
<Property name="FanSpeedAlgorithm" value="Automatic" />
</Feature>
<Feature name="FanSpeedRPMTarget_0">
<Property name="Want" value="0" />
</Feature>
<Feature name="FanSpeedPercentTarget_0">
<Property name="Want" value="25" />

-change to
............<Property name="FanSpeedAlgorithm" value="Manual" />
Note: You can leave it on automatic. FanSpeedPercentTarget from 25 to 55 should still work. However, this will not fully help idle temps

-change to
............<Property name="Want" value="55" /> (or any other numerical value)

-save and exit the xml file
-go back to Profiles Manager screen, select your profile and select the activate and close
button
-close Catalyst Control Center
-play a game and see if the fan revs up.
