Used Coolbits2 on fx 5700 ultra

Stock settigns were 475 core 906 memory. Not that much different then stock 5950 which is at 475/950

Anyhow, used auto detect and it came up with 511/980

Auto detect doesnt work on my other pc. Its got a ti4600 using 56.72 drivers
It jsut immedietly blinks the screen and then lists 0/0, tho I can manually change it. Instead of having the selections of:
( )No Overclocking
( )Auto Overclock
( )Manual Overclock

The ti4600 does not have the check box for ( )Auto Overclock so probably why when I tried to click the tab for auto detect, it came back with 0/0

Back to the 5700 U
temp reads 45-46c and ambient temp at 43c and slowdown threshold of 129c. Isnt that kinda high for a threshold slowdown?

No, 129 C is normal setting for your card.

the auto-detect function depends on on-chip temperature monitoring, so is not applicable to ti4600 as it has no temp sensors !

and if you think that 129c is high for a 5700u, then be glad it is not the 140c of a 5900 card ? Seriously though, neither 129 or 140 are meaningful to any operation of you card ? And I have yet to see any Nvidia supporting design evidence that gives any credence to the actual purpose of the slowdown threshold being at so high a level ? At close to either of these levels no card could be functioning in any normal manner ??

The main thing I would warn against however, is ticking the "Enable heat indicator warning......" driver option, if it exists for a 5700 card, because it causes random shutdowns on a 59xx series card !!!
