Default Re: 169.07 Ubuntu 7.10 Fan at %100

I have CVS version of nvclock working perfectly on my 8800 GT (newer g92 core) with the option set to auto. I did a stress test running multiple glxgears to make sure the fan increases and decreases properly, its hard to tell but i think it is. As mentioned earlier, for those that are having trouble with it saying it cant change the fan speed make sure that you have the cvs version using the steps mentioned earlier and not the method of downloading the tar.gz file.
so definately works on:
Kubuntu 7.10
167.07 nvidia driver
8800 GT (g92)

I also have it loading up in my autostart folder, I created a shortcut in there with the auto option. Just make sure you have it set to "run in terminal" or it might seem like the program is hanging.
I was wondering is there a better way then doing this? because I was hoping there was a way to get the fan speed down like right when the gui loads, or is a newer driver the only option? The thing I dont like about this is that the option has to be in the autostart of all the users on the system or else the fan speed will stay at 100% until someone with the shortcut in the autostart logs into the system. Any ideas?

Thanks to all the folks who posted informative items here, can't wait for the next driver update though. I couldn't get nvclock to work fine quickly enough and using the older drivers is not an option for me as the card I have is new and not supported in the old drivers.

You can for instance load nvclock from your .xinitrc script or let your desktop start it (both kde and gnome have ways for that).

im using the auto option and its not loud at all. in fact the only thing I hear in my system is the cpu fan and case fan right now. the video card is as quiet as it is in windows for me now, I'm not sure how to check current fan speed but if there is a way let me know and i can find out what i have.

Just tried nvclock with my 8800gt and the new drivers.

Set to auto it is still noticably louder than the previous driver but now it's at least bearable. The fan speeds in the previous driver were absolutely spot on for a quiet PC and I want them back.

I hope Nvidia hurry up and get their ass in gear and release a new driver to fix this *major* bug.

It can be that nvidia reprogrammed some of the sensor parameters. It is trivial to add to nvclock but right now I don't have it in (one reason is that I don't have a card with this sensor chip).

If you want silence, just set the speed to 30% or 40% with nvclock. I wouldn't suggest it, though, this chip is hot. If you're really after silence, grab an after market cooler.

The beta driver was keeping the fan way to slow the core was heating up quite a lot.
