let's post something positive for change: 0.0.21 works perfectly on my sys, no bugs at all, every 3d app incl. doom3, farcry and so on is recognized. the possibility to send the temperature readings to mbm is ingenious and spares me a lot of juggling with vb scripts in samurize. although i don't actually need the fan control (9800xt has a built in) it works 100%.
so what else can i say than a big thanks to w1zzard, very good job!!

This question was asked before, but no reply. Is it very harmful to set m x800 XT PE fan to 100% when I'm gaming only (i.e. set to 100% above 60 C) and leave it at about 30% during idle and normal functions? The reason I'm asking is because with new ATITool I'm able to get a higher overclock than previously because when my fan is up all the way my temp never gets above 71C and before it would hit 81C. I was gaming for over and hour on Doom 3 at 555 core and 575 mem. Anyone else have some nice overclocks on this card?
i would also like to hear what people have to say about this...personally i'm hesitant to keep the fan at 100% as i'm worried that it may reduce the fan's longevity and result in a premature fan failure.

i'm tempted to change the preset fan speeds, for example 80C=80% instead of 80C=55%...i'd want more info on the robustness of the fan proir to proceeding.

thanks w1zzard...been reading up on the posts, the fan feature is an excellent addition, i see you're the man to thank for this. very nicely done. my card's running 20C cooler with the fan at 100% as compared to dynamic temps.

today is a hot day, so i decided id experiment with my fan settings. I set it up to 100% (its a X800 Pro modded to XTPE). Where i was getting 47c idle, i am now getting 40 (which is what i normally run at. so if i can expect 33c on a normal day, id be vry happy. Only down side though is i can definatly hear the fan now :p
