I use ATi Tool. Can't speak for the 7900-series, but it works really well for the 8800-series.

When I had my 7900GTX, though, I used nvtweak/nvtray with great success. Was able to OC my 7900GTX to 720/1740 with it.

Cool. I think I used to use it for my old 9800Pro

I didn't think I could use it for Nvidia cards.

Very cool. Glad I asked.

I installed ntune and that kept causing my system to lock up everytime I tried opening the Video Card Control Panel. Then after I unistalled it too!!!, until I deleted the registry entry manually. I didn't get to play around to much longer, but no lockup for 10 minutes or so after I deleted the registry entry.

I've used ATI Tool on my 6800GS.. In my books, it ranks above anything else that I've tried.

I agree i just used it for the 1st time.best oc utility out there got my core at 635 memory at 2.0. It went higher but the temps were in the 80's and that was at 670and 2.2.

QUick question:

On a 7950, do you have to overclock both cores (one at a time)? or will changing the clocks in ATI tool do both automatically?

ATITool might be good but I don't know what's wrong with coolbits if you just want something easy.

The good thing about ATi Tool is that it has the built-in artifact scanner. Lets you know when you've hit a wall.

Yup, same here. Either are good. Of course, with my G80, it's NTune.
