Default Re: Official "I just got a Geforce GTX 460/465/470/480" thread

Currently displaying on an EVGA 460 GTX SC 768MB installed about an hour ago. Coming from a 9500 GT. Disturbed by the lack of overclocking support on Linux.

Option "RegistryDwords" "PerfLevelSrc=0x2222"
Option "Coolbits" "5"

Set PowerMizer to max performance and enable GPU fan settings. That's all we *nix guys get for now. Terribly disappointed. Was hoping to see a stable 850,2000. Instead, I see 763,1900, tops. C'mon, NVIDIA....Release a driver which supports Fermi overclocking already! The GPU fan can get loud, and I have a very loud box already (Scythe Kaze Maru 2 140mm x 2 + Scythe Ultra Kaze 140mm x 1 + Scythe Kama Flow 2 120mm x 2). Can start hearing it above my other fans starting at 60 (I have it set at 50). Nothing to hope for but an updated driver...This really takes the edge of of the purchase...
