Default Coolbits and gf2 mx 440 64MB

Hi! I enabled coolbits in xorg.conf, but I don't get clock frequencies section in nvidia-settings.
Is it possible to overclock this card? I would overclock it, because compiz effects are jerky, too see if it helps a bit in performance.

The Coolbits overclocking interface does not support your graphics card; `nvclock` might, however, please see: http://www.linuxhardware.org/nvclock.

Thanks, I'll try soon after I get access to that computer (it's my sisters comp). Is it possible to overclock with this utility even when running xgl (nvidia-settings doesn't work at all when xgl is running)?

I believe so. Please note that `nvidia-settings` does still work when XGL is running, provided it's connected to the X server on top of which XGL runs (i.e. use the -c command line argument or the DISPLAY environment variable to point `nvidia-settings` at the correct X server/screen). Also note, however, that OpenGL applications rendering indirectly with MESA from within XGL do not respect the NVIDIA X server's OpenGL settings.
