    Powercolor 4890 - powerplay/underclocking issue

    Hello forum, first post, first problem ;-)
    I have a powercolor ati 4890 card, it works "okay" and thanks to Arctic Cooling Accelero it is very quite und cool (2x120mm fans in front of it).
    The problem is that the card won’t clock down probably in powerplay. I have searched the web and the card should go down to approx. 240mhz on gpu clock. But mine got stucked at 850 on the main screen in gpuz (latest cataclyst). The funny thing is, that in the sensor tab it tells me that the clock is 500mhz. After I start ati tray tools and underclock manually it clocks down on the main tab also. :banghead:
    Which Tab should I trust and How can I fix the powerplay setting? I want that the card clocks down correctly, the 4890 wastes enough energy already!
