i've been using atitool from years with my 850pro without any trouble, now i upgraded to a Sapphire 3870 / 512 gddr4, and tried to use it again, but when i launch the application, it hangs, using 99% of the system resources, and crashes without any error after some minutes. I checked the logfile and this is what i got:

I'm using catalyst version 8.10, and tried to uninstall atitool and install it again, but nothing changed... any suggestions?

And, does the overdrive feature of the catalyst package works good?

Thank you! :toast:

ATI Tool doesn't support HD3870. ATi overdrive worked fine for my 3870, however there is not fan control. For that you can create a profile in CCC or RivaTuner supports it.

I like the test for artifacts that it has. But I can't get it to run for my HD 2600 XT AGP card.

I don't know if its the driver or what. But it will not work.
