Default Forget nTune... use ExperTool...

ExperTool... I used this back on my old 6800GT.... same program kicks ass on my 8800GTX. Its from Gainward and will work on non-gainward nVidia cards (at least its working great on my eVGA card). I believe it also works on windows Vista (I have yet to try.. but they took the message away that said it did not so I assumed they fixed it). Just another alternative for those of you who don't know about it Attached is the link to download it and a picture of it.

http://www.gainward.net/support/index_uk/

*edit* --> Works in Vista 32bit and Vista 64bit when driver signing is disabled.

Does it control both fans on an SLI setup or is it like Ntune only one works

ExperTool didn't work initially.
Gave an error, and did not start.

BUT IT DOES work, after i rebooted the machine.
strange indeed!

Plus points for:
remembering my settings AFTER reboot (overclocking, fan control)
Cons:
Misreads the memory clock freq (reports 2X the real memory freq)

vista 32bit on an asus p5nd2-sli mobo and a sparkle gfx8800gts 640mb

Really, i still can't get it to work after a reboot. It says something about not supporting my cards and then just disappears.

Yup... enjoy! I was waiting for them to take the (does not support vista) line away I used that tool for years on my last card so I have grown to love it. Works perfect for me in XP.... hopefully I can get it working in Vista when I have some time to try. Been too busy enjoying my new system and all my games to even try and mess with Vista on this setup yet I will also be using Vista 32bit so good to know some of you got it working. It is a Gainward tool so I guess it can't work for every card... probably depends how close your card is to thier spec or not.

It works for me! Vista and XFX 8800GTS! Yey!

Cheers for bringing this to my attention mate, buggy bloody nTune doesn't feel like loading profiles, and lazy bloody me doesn't feel like changing settings on every boot
