Reading Radeon 9800 temperature
Hello, is there a sensor on the ATI Radeon 9800pro VGA card?
So i can read the temps :hello:

if it's the R350 core : no
360 core : possible if flashed to XT.

only if your 9800Pro has a R360 core as Gamer stated

No, it's like Gamer says:

You can only know what core you have, if you remove the heatsink of your card.

The R350 core is the "normal" 9800(pro) core.
The R360 core is the 9800XT core. This core has a sensor!

Some manufacturers user R360 cores for the production of their 9800 pro. Probably because they don't have enough R350 core's or because the R360 cores they use, aren't good enough for 9800XT's. So if you have a 9800 Pro with a R360 core, you can try to flash your 9800 Pro to a 9800 XT and then tools like ATITool will be able to read the temperature. If you don't flash your card, these tools will not recognise your card as a 9800XT and only a 9800XT has a temperature sensor.

Got it? :)

I would just start overclocking then until you get artifacts

here's a tool which can do this for you automatically!
