Somethine to try
 
I have a BFG 8800GTSOC 640MB card and I'm using RivaTuner 2.01. I have my 2d clocks set to 470 and my 3D set to 580 and yes, they do work. My fan speed is at 100%. Idle temps are down to 51C, under load they hit 63C Ambient temp is 38C. So if you haven't tried setting 2d Clocks using riva tuner with your 8800 card, give it try, it does work and the 3D clocks will kick in when you play a 3D app.

Xion, I dont know if RT works with the 2900, but if it does, wanna see if you can set seperate 2D and 3D clocks with your card? Post back with result if it works.

I'm using ATITool because it has voltage adjustments. Allows me to run 900 and up on the core. If I want to default back to 2D clocks, all I have to do is exit out of it. Catalyst center defaults back to 2D clocks and reduces power consumption. Drops my idle from 50-->38.

Ah, OK, cool. Didn't know and thought I would share.
