Re: ASUS ATI 4850 Video card
You have to tweak a CCC profile. I have the 4850, I did the tweak. It's quick and easy.
-Go to ATi Overdrive on the left
-Click the padlock to unlock ATi Overdrive
-Click Enable ATi Overdrive
-Go to Profiles>Profile Manager then make/save a profile
-Go to (on XP) "C:\Documents and Settings\USERNAME\Local Settings\Application Data\ATI\ACE" You will see some XML files
-Open the XML file with the same name as the profile you created (you open this with wordpad or any text editor)
-Find "<Property name="FanSpeedAlgorithm" value="Automatic" />" (I think it says automatic, might be just auto)
-Replace Automatic (or auto) with Manual, so it looks like this:
"<Property name="FanSpeedAlgorithm" value="Manual" />"
-Find "<Feature name="FanSpeedPercentTarget_0">
<Property name="Want" value="0" />" (might be 20, mine was 0)
-Make the value "100" so it looks like this:
<Property name="Want" value="100" />"
Save the file, reload the profile.
EDIT: You can make the value anything other than 100, it's just whatever percentage you want the fan to run at.
