Default overclocking tools

Since installing 169.25 drivers i am unable to overclock my 8800GTX with ATI tool.

What are you guys considering the best tool for overclocking 8800GTX without flashing the bios ?

WTH??? Ever since updating my drivers, RivaTuner wont let me OC my cards. No matter what I try, just wont let me. ATi Tool doesn't work either. Anybody know what's up?

What happens is, I check that box to allow overclocking, and that prompt comes up asking whether you want to detect stock clocks now or reboot to detect stock clocks. Regardless which option I choose- I still cannot OC my cards. If I click "Detect Now"... the dialog goes away and then nothing happens. If I click "Reboot" my comp will restart but when Windows comes back up, the OC'ing option in RivaTuner is still greyed out.

Any ideas why this might be happening?
