CoolBits function in the 6.50 Detonator drivers
The new official Detonator drivers 6.50 seem to have a bug in the CoolBits function. This could be a problem for an overclocker in connection with the standby mode.
The following problem exists in this Correlation: The CoolBits settings work with the 6.50 drivers, but under Win9x/ME it can happen that the driver tries to restore the overclocking settings after the monitor or the entire computer has gone into standby mode settings made by the user. The consequence of this is that the whole system hangs up or the usual display errors occur that occur when the RAM or core clock is too high. To find out for yourself whether you have this bug, you should set under 'Properties> Screen saver> Settings> Power schemes' that the monitor goes into standby mode after one minute. If you get it out of standby mode and display errors occur, or the whole system is down, this error unfortunately also occurs with you. If the system does not hang up completely, you should take a look at the CoolBits settings. You will find that the card appears to be 'underclocked' as the settings are well below normal clock rates. But that's also a mistake! When the computer reinitialized itself after standby mode, the card was overclocked to such an extent that errors occurred when displaying the clock rates, as these can no longer be displayed in the settings. The ad doesn't go that far. So you should definitely not try to set the supposedly low clock rates back to the normal values after the standby mode, as this will only overclock the card. So everyone who uses the CoolBits function should be careful and ideally the StandBySwitch off mode.
