Is this for all the Radeon cards? Or just specific ones that the new 8.10 came out for?

Yup, it's for all of them. Just click on 9500 at the bottom of the Radeon list and you'll see. :biggrin:

Since ATI is allowing you to do this (control the fan), it shouldn't void the warranty on the card or anything should it? Since it's them allowing you to do it...so if the fan wears out or something before the card's warranty is up.

No that will not void the warranty.

Have any of you that are running 3870s in CF tested 8.10? I cant get it to work, CF = instant bsod with ati driver error in both Vista and XP. Single cards work fine. Im starting to suspect it is the board so Im trying to find someone that can confirm that 8.10 and 3870 CF is working.

Tried these out with 4870 in crossfire and got a boost of about 6fps in Crysis at 1900*1200:thumb:

So how do you control the fan's speed ? I can't see anything in Catalyst Control Center...
