    I downloaded ATITool so i could monitor the temperature on my Raedon 9800 series but it doesn't seem i can..there was no option for "Temperature Monitoring"..so the problem is whenever i play counterstrike 1.6 it starts off at 100fps then suddenly drops to 5-10 fps after a minute of play..i thought it was my video card over heating..so i bought a pretty nice $30 fan and installed it..by the way my video card had no stock fan on it..

    So..i still have the damn problem any ideas??..anything i can tweak with the ATITool?

    AMD 2600+
    1.5G's of ram

    The Newest version of CCC from ATI should have a temp monitor in it. I noticed this recently when I loaded the newest version for my 9600 it had it, it never did before (or at least not the last time I checked 8 months ago).
    You can overclock with CCC also, but no fan controll.
    At ATI select card type, then series, then CCC driver.

    Ok just making sure. The card isn't going to give you big framerates with CS. Or, even moderate for that matter...

    You can put an old Pentium HS-Fan on there and wire it to another fan. It will improve the cooling at least. Some Ramsinks on the ram might help also, but I dought you can get a Ramsink on the VidRam under the heatink.

    What did you put on there for $30, I just put an IceberQ 4 on my 9600 for $8. (heat sink w/fan) Dropped my temps from stock Idle 46 to 33.

    The 9800 series (R350 core) hasn't temperature monitoring chip (LM63). That's why you can't find the temperature reading nowhere. The exception is 9800XT with on-die thermal diode (in the GPU) and additional LM63 chip on the PCB (R360). That card monitors both temperatures (GPU and the PCB).

    There are of course 9800PRO cards which come with R360 and 9800XT PCB (I still have such card). After flashing of 9800XT BIOS to the PRO card it turns to 9800XT with temperature monitoring. The other possibility is to receive 9800PRO (even 9800SE) with R360, XT PCB and PRO BIOS which allows to read the temperature but using ATITool or other application but not CCC ;). If you show a picture of the card I will try to tell you whether is possible to do something with it in order to monitor the temperature.
