Default Help with 8800 gts overclock in vista

Hi guys. I want to benchmark my gpu I want to see if I can reach 10 000 marks in 3d mark 06. Now my problem is I can't get any of the gpu overclocking tools to work in vista. Rivatuner doesn't, ati tools doesn't work either for my card. And when I oc using ntune I when I try to apply I get this message back. I get gpu clock test failed. I have only tried to oc by 5mhz each of the corebus and memory bus. I have all the lastest versions of each program. I have also run each program as administrator. And please no go back to xp comments.

Any help will be appreciated.

I think there is an ATI Tool for vista or a beta for vista that works. Only the one version tho. Could be mistaken.
