8800 GTS 640, WinXp 32bit.

0 impact on performance in crysis.

Avg 26 fps benchmark with 169.01. Avg 26 fps with 169.04.

They work fine though.

These drivers does not work with rivatuner for me, means they wont let me overclock. They also seem to give me some "shadow flashing" like that other guy discribed... kinda like, shifting between ligher and darker in some places.

What other program can i use for overclocking since rivatuner aint willing to work, i also tried ntune but it wont work on vista 32 :(


got 8800gtx

Any idea if these fix the source shadow bug? Not sure if its SLI related but its really annoying and i just recently got the orange box..and it is really horrible to play this game with the shadow flickering.

Also do these break nhancer?

I had this... Did you restart straight away after installing? I un-installed... rebooted, re-installed and it fixed it for me.

I bet he'll stop working on RT altogether now. You guys should just flash, it's easier and no more software to deal with.

I used to always just flash too. However, as the price for top-end cards has climbed, I had started thinking that perhaps I do not want to have the need for RMAing a dead card, and have it denied due to an overclocked BIOS; thus I have gone back to software OC.

I am successfully using Rivatuner to OC, but I run XP not vista. They key was to remove the Vista-like GUI behavior for the overclocking tab, which also removes the seperate shader overclock slider, and go back to the regular XP behavior and just overclock memory and core and let the shader be tied into the core again.

Good luck!

So if i do that then it will work with Vista? tell me how do i "remove the Vista-like GUI behavior for the overclocking tab" as you describe it?
Would love to be able to overclock with RT again...

Minor improvement from 163.71, but have the flashing textures/shadows problem.
