Don't like the look of WinFox? Go ahead... Change it.
WinFox also changes the layout of your display properties tab to provide the
look and feel of their proprietary drivers, yet be utilizing the latest
reference NVIDIA drivers:
The last extras. Not much content, but might be a welcome change from Solitaire
for some. Heh.
And on to one of the unique aspects of this card:
The hardware monitoring feature plots a graph of temperature vs. time to display
just how hot you were able to get the chip up to during your last test or gaming
session. This shot was taken after three rounds of 3DMark2001. Leadtek designed
the layout so that quite an amount of information could be displayed to
the user - most notably the chip temperatures and fan speed. The voltage running to the
GPU is also displayed and the slide bar on the lower left leads me to believe
that sooner or later, users will be able to adjust the voltage going into the
chip. However the sliders were protected at the time of testing.
Leadtek has also created a minature version of this screen with the
intentions of it being constantly displayed in an "always-on-top" format in order to
minimize screen real-estate while allowing the vitals to be monitored.
Note: At the time of writing up the review, I noticed that the Chip Edge Temp
was malfunctioning. I can't explain the reason for this but it was working when
I first received the card... Oops. ;)
