You could try running the fan directly off the power supply molex. Can you unplug the fan from the card? If so, get yourself an adapter that converts power to 12v (yellow) and negative to ground (black).

(red) is only 5 volts and probably will make it slower depending on the type of fan and amount of voltage already being supplied by the card.

However with the advantage of cooler temps, there can also be disadvantages to this method;

1) Possibly shorter fan life
2) Louder fan operation

I don't mind the noise, voiding waranty or experimenting with computerparts. Afterall, I don't have a ecs k7s5a for nothing.
Thanks for the advice, and if I have more questions I'll just open a new thread; I don't want to go off-topic too much.

Not a problem. You are likely using drivers for which all the options in NVTweak simply cannot apply. To get full potential of the utility you must be using ForceWare and Stereo 3D driver combination.

Besides that, you seem to be glancing over options you didn't even know existed. Like refresh rate overrides, vmr, etc.

You'll need to to download Forceware 61.76 and stereo driver 61.76 for it to work, both can be found here : ftp://download.nvidia.com/Windows/61.76/

You cannot mix stereo driver with any other Forceware driver.
It has been ages since a new stereo driver was released. (61.76)

Hope this helps.

Just FYI, there are also 61.77 stereo 3d drivers available on nvidia's FTP. They are only slightly newer but they do support shader model 3.

Default Re: NVTweak v1.7.1

Would NVTweak be of any help with the Riddick + 75.90 drivers error/crash, as you have probably seen in the 75.90 thread people get an error message when they try to start the game ?

ps, error message.."The application requires graphic driver support for OpenGL 1.3 or higher", obviously the games Hardware Detection is not recognizing something in the 75.90 drivers.

thx

*edit* nevermind, the new version of RT has a fix

Default Re: NVTweak v1.7.1

Hi,
I've just put together a new PC. I thought I'd dip my toes into the SLI thing so I've set up a DFI SLI-D with a couple of inno3d 6800gt's. I'd like to get them to Ultra speeds (I've got them watercooled using an EXOS), so I installed this application to see if I could ramp up the clocks. Well, the optimal frequency came up as 415 so I ticked the box for keeping the setttings at startup, restarted, then tried a couple of benchmarks. Doom3 was exactly the same (94fps at 1600x1200,4xaa, high quality) and so was 3dmark05, it also reported the clock speeds to still be 350. Am I missing something? The settings seem to be saying it's overclocked but actually it isn't. Any help much appreciated. Thanks.

Make sure you are overclocking 3D settings and not 2D. Also, clock settings may not be applied at startup if you have disabled the nVidia driver service and/or driver startup items in the registry.

BTW nice score for Doom³ even without the o/c!

Thanks Rewt, Where do I find these settings? Sorry for the noob questions.
I'm very very happy with the Doom scores, been playing online at 1280x1024, 4xaa high quality, smooth as butter with no slowdowns, I'll save the 1600x1200 for the expansion pack single player.
