- - Catalyst 3.8

I used the Cat 3.8's and the Omega 3.8s for a short time after they were released to the public. I noticed a dramatic system temp increase. It went from around 28 degrees to 39 after half hour playing the call of duty demo. I wasn't satisfied with this, and as this was the ONLY reason for my temp increase I decided to roll-back to the Omega 3.7's. I did so and within half hour my temps were back to normal. Go figure. There is *definitely* something odd going on there.

With Radeon 9800/9700's capable of syncing @ a refresh rate of 200 Hz, that means 99% of the world's monitors are at risk of damage.
So far, a total of 183 monitors, ranging from high-end 22" Viewsonic P225F's to lowly 14" Compaq SVGA monitors have been reported as dead/damaged due to this problem. It is to be taken seriously.

|jmke ||18th October 2003 23:41 |
wrong refresh rates for TFT's is also bad, so I think yes

omfg crap .. I guess I'll go uninstall them now :( and reinstall when it\'s fixed or something .. Or would the Omega drivers fix this issue ?
|jmke ||19th October 2003 13:06 |
the Omega drivers are based on the ATI ones and have the same core code.. so in short: don\'t use them either

i haven\'t noticed anything, probably the pelt is keeping things as they should, muy overclock rests at 470/760 or sth.
I ain\'t changing, I live on the wild side
