    New driver team. I gotta say these 12.7's are doing great for me. Hopefully they keep them coming. :)

    Can't seam to find it anymore but I read that the 12.6 drivers had a Known Issue of Blocky corruption when playback on video in Windows Media Player and Windows Media Center.

    Anyone know if thats been fixed in 12.7 ?

    Cat 12.6 is garbage. I've had so many problems with it that i don't even try to look at it.

    Out of curiosity.

    I brought home a 7870 to see for myself and sure enough its there on some video formats. 12.7 is little better than 12.6 in that reguard.

    I havent had a AMD/ATI card to mess around with for a long time, more than 7 years.

    One thing that immediately made me pleased was the color depiction. :eek: Dam,the colors just look so much better than all my Nvidias.

    Now I got to see how high the core clock goes on this thing.:)

    Narrowed it down between 1195-1175 core clock

    Is it possible to add a ramp-up speed (ala fan graph) to control the fan speed. Other then the set speed in the Overdrive ?

    63c isnt high but the cooler the better and the fan is only at 45%. I dont mind a little noise aslong as its not constant. It be nice to be able to control fan speeds at temps.
