Hi,

A family member installed the latest driver for my 4870 X2 Graphics card, this card has overheating problems that crashed if It is at a x temperature usually 80º constant for some minutes.

Now my graphics keep crashing when I play games or other aplications and I'm force to boot.

 

Where Can I find the Fan Speed in the current Catalyst Control Center or Where can I download the older drivers?

In the new catalyst Control Panel I click on overdrive and It takes me to the main page of the Control panel?!

I can't find the link anywhere near the website?

 

Regards

AMPA

Just use MSI Afterburner and set up a fan profile.

Actually, I am also wondering if the CCC has an option to adjust auto fan speed like Afterburner, so I don't have run Afterburner every time I play a game.

The right step would be cleaning the fan and applying new thremal paste on the GPU, as automtic fan speed should always be enough.

There also should be some power issue or improperly fastened cooling solution, as the card shouldn't black out at 80°C but around 115°C.
