Default Change powermizer frequencies?

On my pny 9800GT, powermizer frequencies are a bit unbalanced.
level 0 clock is: graphics=300Mhz,Memory=100Mhz,Processor=600Mhz
level 1 clock is: graphics=550Mhz,Memory=900Mhz,Processor=1375mhz

There's nothing wrong with graphics and processor, but memory goes from 900 to 100!
That leads to jerky kwin effects,slow firefox scrolling and so on, terrible.

Is there a way to better balance those values and still have powermizer to switch performance levels?

Short of BIOS modding, no.

Default Re: Change powermizer frequencies?

i thought the solution was:
Code:
nvidia-settings -a GPUOverclockingState=1 -a GPU2DClockFreqs=300,300
It works for 3d frequencies, but doesn't for 2d.
strange enough, setting 2d clock frequencies right from the nvidia-settings gui works (it changes the lower performance mode of powermizer)

--edit--
solved with this:
Code:
#!/bin/sh
nvidia-settings -a [gpu:0]/GPUOverclockingState=0 #to clear some inconsistences with the gui
sleep 0.5 #just in case...
nvidia-settings -a [gpu:0]/GPUOverclockingState=1 -a [gpu:0]/GPU2DClockFreqs=300,300 -a [gpu:0]/GPU3DClockFreqs=550,900
