I tried to overclock my sapphire radeon 9600 + newest softmodded beta catalyst drivers with atitool but the core and memory clock keeps jumping back .What do i have to do to prevent this?

I noticed that as well... set core\mem ran a benchmark...checked atitool and the settings are back at default... Sapphire x800pro
ATITool 0.20

I have a sapphire 9600xt and with stock cooling i managed to o/c the core to 550MHz, reaching temps in the low 60s.
Now i have put an arctic cooling vga silencer on the board and as expected it is much cooler but i can only reach 565Mhz (stopping once i get an artifact) despite the fact that the temp never goes above 42 degrees. Other people have reported way higher core speeds than 565, why can't i go higher? I'm using catalyst 4.8, directx 9.0b, atitool 0.0.20

hey, new here, but i have to say, i have stock cooler, with a 9600 XT 256 sapphire, and i can OC it to 555 core and 320 mem, and it still stays below 55C when in full load, however i have modded my case with a side window for pulling in cold air!

I've also got a Sapphire 128 MB 9600XT with a VGA Silencer and can only clock it to 565-570 on the core; I think it just needs more power to go higher; I'm interested in hearing how those who've managed to get it above 600 have done it.

Mine runs at 611 core, 780 mem, but only every once in a while. Small room temperature fluctuations seem to really affect it, but once it gets down to a certain temperature, around 69, it won't go any further, no matter what (12" fan 8" from the core has 1mhz effect). I also have the biggest ramsinks you've ever seen, i might put pics up later, but I think a lot of people have already seen them since i've posted them so many times.
