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.

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 don't know but I want to find out I just got my 9600XT today mine is made by ASUS 128mb VIVO , I love the card moved over from my trusty Ti4200 128mb which is now in our other machine, would like to know more about this feature.

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

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there https://tinyurl.com/ycpxl
