You ever find a solution to this? I'm still unable to get this card to max speed. Nvidia-settings shows the ard never scales past 275/301, when it should go to 550/950.

Also on an alienware with a 260M

tried using coolbits, it says it's set clock frequencies sucessfully, but powermizer still stops at 1.

Tried disabling ConnectToAcpid, and then it's locked to powermizer level 1.

Gonna call em back on friday if I haven't heard anything. I was surprised I didn't get a flat "no" when I was complaining about a linux driver issue, but he seemed to take it seriously.

If that doesn't work I'll probably try to modify the bios to get it to work, either that or I'll buy an ATI card. I'll let you know how it goes.
