Default 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.

wrong refresh rates for TFT's is also bad, so I think yes

the Omega drivers are based on the ATI ones and have the same core code.. so in short: don't use them either

I ain't changing, I live on the wild side
