Maybe specific code for that i5400 chipset variation !
My gear is: Tyan Tempest i5400XT, Dual E54XX CPUS, Quadro FX1700 and 9800GTX+

Your issue is not related to Powermizer.
For those of you with the speed of your cards "stuck" on minimum, why don't you edit your video BIOS to only have one speed - 100% - and reflash them. No, I'm not suggesting this as a permanent fix.
