I'm on Vista 32bit, with a HIS 3870XT, full system in my profile.

I've found a few issues, not sure if some are bug or simply stuff that's not implemented yet, so here we go:
1. Fan speed is always at 0% according to the monitor...
2. When detecting artifacts, the first time it detected them when overclocking I got a few beeps and errors in the cube window as expected. On further tinkering and running "Scan for Artifacts" I can physically see yellow artifacts on the spinning cube, but it's not detecting them it's just continuing as if they are normal...
3. The current clock setting ATITool detects isn't quite right, i'm currently at 815MHz on the core according to CCC but ATITool -AND- GPU-Z thinks it's running at 810MHz...
