Ok, so there is a fan fix for the HD 4000s to get the fan to stay at a certain speed to lower temps:
HD 4870 Fan-Control, Easy Workaround, Lowered My Temps 30C - PC Perspective Forums
Im having a problem locating the profile.xml file. I installed everything the sapphire CD included. I go to the catalyst control center -> ATI Overdrive and hit the lock button icon to turn overdrive on. Then I go to the profile tab at the top and select profile manager. I create a profile without changing anything at the bottom (just entered a name and a short description) and clicked saved. I did not activate it at this point. I navigate to the file destination as shown in the guide.
Here is my problem. There is no xml file with my profile's name in it. Ive gone to the C:\Documents and Settings\"user name"\Application Data\ATI\ACE and there was nothing there. I also tried C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\ATI\ACE and there was a xml file in it but it was called profiles.xml (my profile name i created was fanspeed), but nothing else.
Just in case this is what was in that profiles.xml:
<Adapter name="PCI_VEN_1002&DEV_9440&SUBSYS_0502100 2&REV_00_4&2B9C2F50&0&0008A" />
I do have hidden folders displayed. I had to anyways to see the application data folder. But there is just no file in either folder.
I can't play a game yet till I get this fixed, cause Im idling at 80*C :O.
edit: some pics if it helps:
edit. Yes Im stupid. I went to the C:\Documents and Settings\"user name"\Application Data\ATI\ACE instead of C:\Documents and Settings/"user name"\Local Settings\Application Data\ATI\ACE. I was skipping over the local settings. Anyways its there, sorry bout that.
Here are my new temps at 35% fanspeed if anyone is curious:
Alot better than 80*C. I think I might another profile for gaming and set it to 50% for games until AMD releases a fix that will allow fan speed to be controlled by temps.
