thanks aberforth and narynan, but now that I can see my hd4870 temp, it's 75 degrees Celcius on idle, and 85 degrees Celcius for its onboard memory.

I read the fan fix by changing CCC profile values, but it doesn't work for me, i have CCC version 8.8, is there a fan fix for this version of CCC?

(on profile manager page: I click 'activate and close' button, it just asks me if i want to replace the profile with same name, and if i choose 'activate profile' from the drop down menu, nothing happens either)

I made sure settings were manual, target rpm is 0, and target percentage is 60

any help is appreciated, thanks (anything like riva tuner out now that works?)

I think you got it a little bit wrong when it comes to the editing.

I think you are editing the wrong 0, go one line lower and then change that line. You want the "FanSpeedPercentTarget_0" to look just like that , the line under it though, should have value="THIS" is the number you want to change. Most people find 50% to be the happy spot. give it a shot

Actually you should just copy and paste this into you XML with "XX" being the speed you want. replace the following text with what you see below
I personally choose 30 for normal stuff, 57 for gaming

replace the following text with what you see below

<Feature name="FanSpeedAlgorithm_0">
<Property name="FanSpeedAlgorithm" value="Manual" />
</Feature>
<Feature name="FanSpeedRPMTarget_0">
<Property name="Want" value="0" />
</Feature>
<Feature name="FanSpeedPercentTarget_0">
<Property name="Want" value="XX" />

EXPERTool will change you fan speed *dynamically*

FORGET editing profiles unless you like an annoying whine all the time :p

my HD4870 temps dropped OUT of the 80s and i can easily get 820/1160!!

If I was in America, Id send you a hug for this.

Now I can hook up my 120mm Scythe Kama to my HD4870 and control its speed dynamically.

EDIT: OK, how do I sort out the appropriate fan speeds for temperature levels?

if you set it dynamically, it adjusts the fan speed like CCC does, but more aggressively - so your card stays cooler

if you set it manually, set it to what level you can handle .. 50% is enough for a mad O/C'er, but that level will kill a noise princess


i see there is no manual adjustment below 50% :p
- well, i use it dynamic and can keep my OC
BUT - i find i don't need the OC that high [820/1165] .. so it is back to "dynamic" and 790/1100 .. why stress over less than 1% performance increase?

eventually i want to sell this card with a good conscience .. like i do all my HW

Ahhh... the program that I thought was my saviour turns out to be the same as everything else...

Inadequate.
