Default ati tool problems

so it has come time in my new comps life to get that radeon 4670 overclocked but when i run ati tool it is slow and makes the cpu ramp up like mad, and dosent work plus the core and mem clock numbers on the slider end are weird:




the drivers on my card are up to date, and could this b because of the atitool version?

Make sure to show the 3D view, so it gives the card a physical workout

Thats a stable version?

If not, try deleting that and trying a lower version

AFAIK, ATitool doesn't support the HD 4800 series. If you want to overclock, use Rivatuner, I just use ATitool for it's GPU stress test.

HD 4600 series is newer than the HD 4800 series.

Just use Rivatuner if ATitool doesn't work.
