    i just did a fresh install of xp and installed the 4.3 cats...i noticed that the overdrive part of the settings isnt there, but the VPU Recover is...is this normal?
    if not, how can i get the overdrive function back?

    thx!

    Is it a "made by ATi" version of the card or 3rd party? I think some of the 3rd party cards don't support the feature as ATi didn't make them so they aren't gonna be to blame if you burn them.

    thats the weird thing...yesterday and before yesterday the function was there, and i enabled it. even though its made by gigabyte, they still support that function

    I noticed this the other day as well..
    I am running the 4.3 cats too, but I had assumed that
    I had lost it because I had killed two processes of which
    I deemed unnessessary that the ati software was running.

    Perhaps has something todo with the 4.3s

    i dont know that card, but looks sweet...
    anyway, overdrive is a feature that 9600xt (and onwards) cards have which consists of "auto overclocking". its totally supported by ATI so the card wont be "over overclocked" :p
    u can enable it in the advanced properties of the card, u should have a section called overdrive and ull see 2 little thermometers there

    I have not updated to 4.2/4.3 because I have seen lots of bugs and actual performance drops (not neccessarily in fps, but other non-fun things)

    I wouldn't be surprised if the overclock function dissapeared with some of the solidity... :( I'm rocking the 4.1's right now, and the overdrive + the temp scale (which wasnt in previous versions) shows up fine
