You shouldn't confuse the issue by posting on what MIGHT have been done when it is unimportant to the FACT that ASUS Bioses are PROPRIETARY items !

They are NOT produced to NVIDIA SPEC's, therefore there is NO requirement for Nvidia drivers to completely support them !

If you load a ASUS V9980 (5950u) bios into NibiTor v2.5 it will not show any Speeds or Volts. And that's because ASUS bios speed and volts tables are NON STANDARD, ie outside nvidia spec's.

Therefore regardless what you think you used for overclocking ----> You were supposed to use ASUS Proprietary tools.

But if you still want to help blueden, then it is most important that you identify the exact non-asus procedure you used for overclocking and making it stick.

To overcome many shortcommings in ASUS bioses, I always recommended that ASUS card owners should flash their cards with other manufacturers 5950u bioses. Since everybody elses were actually made to the nvidia spec; and were thus better to mod.
