Re: Nvclock able to change fanspeed Nvidia-Settings not.
Options "Coolbits" "5"
in the xorg.conf enables the user to both overclock and set the fan speed in nvidia-settings in 302.07 and probably earlier versions. 302.07 will even find the optimal overclock speed for you. Very nice. NVClock isn't needed anymore.
