Yes it works for Vista 64, however for me at least the newest Nvidia drivers break the manual fan speed control. I've tried all the newer drivers above the 100.59 and anything newer results in the manual fan control within the tool becoming non-operational.

Overclock works, but no fan control. Tested on Vista Ultimate x64.

sweet it appears to work on my setup. 7800gs and Vista Business x64. As soon as I installed it for the first time ever my fan speed dropped to what it is in XP for desktop usage. My core overclock is sticking to only thing is my memory reverts back. Is this tool meant to work with memory? Anyway, I could care less about that if fan control is now working. If it made a difference this is on a fresh install with the 158.18 installed right away.

Works (except of the memory clock bug) perfectly on my Vista-64.

Weird glitch with mine........BFG 7800gs OC agp, the core overclocks, but the mem just goes to 1200, wich is default, bleh. Must be the drivers I am useing wich are 93.81. Maybe thier borked somehow with the oc, becuase everything else works like a dream.
I also cannot oc with the coolbits either, it sets it to default everyime I reboot.
If this is what I am stuck with, with this driver set, then I'll have to mdeal with it, because thus far these are by far the fastests and best visual quality I have found for this card.

no if you read my post I found the same thing but someone replied already stating the memory thing is a bug so will probably be fixed sometime.

This is driver related.... I lost fan control with the 158.18 but it worked with the 100.65.
