Hi, I tried using the memory timings latency editor. It started messing up the screen so I reset. When I came back to windows, the second time I open the Mem editor it has gobbly gook characters and one or two boxes with nothing in them. I have a screen shot if you want. Also I cannot change anything, and then when I close it, ATItool has a fatal error and closes. Any ideas on what to do? Tried a complete uninstall and reinstall and didn't fix it.

I found that going back to .22 resolved this issue, so it did not have any permanent damage to the card. But for some reason doing clean installs of .23 did not fix the problem, which would imply it had altered the card???

what does it say for chip type in your settings of 0.0.23 ?

I have the same problem with 0.0.23.
The first access to mem settings is ok but the
second access gives this garbled window or a blue screen.
Between the two accesses i closed the mem setting window.
Chip type is R420.


Does the new detection method produce more stress (and therefore more heat) on the memory?
With the old detection method (can be activated in 0.0.23)
my X800 can reach a 20 MHz higher memory clock (578 MHz).
Tested each method for more than one hour.

Hello W1zzard,

am i right with the presumption that the new detection method for max memory clock
is more stressful (produces more heat) for the memory.
