    Hi everyone, I have been a greatful user of ATITool for a while now and having problem with the 0.25 Beta 15 release, hope i can find a answer here, thx in advance


    it takes more than 3 hours and still can't find the max value for the Core or Memory

    I tried to reduce the heat-up phase to only 10 seconds and set the next phase to 100% (which means each phase will run only 10 seconds, does not increase by time)

    and after 3 hours, it still doing the heat-up/scan for artifact thingy........WHEN Will it stop??? :eek: :wtf:


    my spec:

    # ATI Radeon X1600 video card, PCI-Express (128MB)
    # Intel Core Duo T2400

    * 1.83GHz
    * 2MB L2 cache
    * 667MHz FSB

    # 1.5GB PC2-5300 DDR2 (2 slots, 2GB max, 1 GB + 512MB installed)
    # 160GB 7200rpm SATA hard drive
    # 8x SuperDrive (DVD+R DL/DVD±RW/CD-RW) (well it's a mac, on XP for games, so it's same as a PC)


    I was using the last version of ATITool 0.24 and sure it didnot take THAT long to find out the Max Core/Mem on my machine.

    did i do anything wrong or do i simply have to wait and hit the "abort" button on the next morning? :twitch:


    solutions will greatly appreciated.:toast:

    There is ATITool v0.26 release few days ago.

    I prefer to find max core and mem by myself. Just increase slowly and check on artifacts. Doing auto find max and/or mem will take longer time and can fried your card if you are not beside your computer to watch the screen.

    @ARTOSOFT, thx for the reply,

    so now i get 0.26, before I overclock, i want to set the default value to the right one (currently it shows 89/89 , which is not right)

    so how do i set it to the actual default value then?
