Second for midend-highend desktop cards with turbocache the feature is 'useless' (not that useless, it is still useful for transferring data from memory to the gpu which is always done) but it should rarely get used for real purposes. Turbocache is mainly marketed on lowend cards which have small memory busses and not much and fast video memory. For those system memory isn't that slow.
I have 2Gb of system memory and I don't think that this is normal.
Aniway I'm really glad of 169.07, it seems to work really well on my system.

It's now the middle of January and I'm still patiently waiting the release of a driver w/o the 100% fan speed bug. Maybe I'm too new to Linux but I've not been able to get nvclock to work for me at all. I'm still a bit shell shocked such a bug could've gotten through the quality control team - they must all be using liquid cooled gfx cards or something at their job.

Given that I have a new 8800 GTS I cannot back out to an older driver, my hardware isn't supported in any of the previous driver revs.

Does anyone know if NVClock 0.8 beta 3 is available in binary form for Ubuntu (Gutsy) somewhere? Or would anyone be kind enough to tell how one should install NVClock from source (the installation readme seems to be written for people who already can do the thing). When I do "./autogen.sh", I get
./autogen.sh: 14: aclocal: not found
./autogen.sh: 15: autoheader: not found
./autogen.sh: 16: autoconf: not found

When I do "make", I get "No target, or make file". I don't know what it is that should be "made". I tried to give make a few files to work with, but make wasn't interested in them.

Oh yeah, I just installed a new GeForce 8800 GT into my machine (got it two months later than promised) and the fan sounds like a vacuum cleaner. Yes, I'm frustrated - you can tell? And please don't anyone tell me to go to buy an aftermarket cooler for the card - or play some loud music :-/

Thanks,

Ari

You probably need to install some packages that make those missing commands available (like a package called "autoconf").
Then you can try the autogen.sh again.

Note that a configure script is shipped in the .tar.gz and it is also shipped with cvs. You don't have to run the auto* scripts.

Fan goes to 100% due to the GPU usage/temperature?
No, it's not related to GPU usage. The reason you don't have the problem (as mentioned earlier in the thread) is that mobile GPUs like the 8600M GT do not have a dedicated fan. They are cooled using the general fan in the laptop.

I also have a 8600M GT and do not have a problem. However, my desktop has a 7900GTX and it definitely has this problem. Right on boot up, the fan is at full speed and stays full speed forever unless I use nvclock to slow it down.

nvclock -f -F auto

Well I got nvclock running and now using the new box under linux is a lot friendlier. I had to take some time to read up on how to properly install stuff though - it turned out that even though I had some generic gcc compiler enabled it was not the right one needed for nvclock to properly install. Once I got all the right gcc compilers enabled the ./configure script ran w/o a hitch and no problems since.

Special thanks to everyone who helped here and esp for Thunderbird for his support on nvclock, it's a neat little utility for sure, you should be working for nVidia

Thanks to all for the great help. I have compiled and installed the latest nvclock 0.8b3a and it works fine. The install with checkinstall failed without having a version number supplied. After providing a version number, all worked fine. nvclock failed on its initial execution because the setting directory ~/.nvclock didn't exist, but it worked fine on the second run. All is fine now.

Again thanks to nvidia for their continued support of Linux.

My fan is still at 100% with this new install of 169.09

Edit: I typed the wrong version number. I am using using 169.09. I did reboot and it is still at 100%. I am running a fully updated Ubuntu 64bit install with Nvidia 169.09 drivers. My card is a EVGA 8800 GTS 640 meg SSC.
