Have you tried nvclock?

Here is a script that supposedly auto adjusts it for you. I havn't tried it yet
though

yes and it doesn't work with the G80 chipset
i have seen a flurry of activity in the nvclock cvs repo, so hopefully soon
it will support G80,,, that script won't work for now, worked fine though
for my 6800GS

AND besides, i post here because i really feel that Nvidia should give us
this feature in nvidia-settings,,, there is no excuse for NOT having this

like the ****ty driver's "memory bug", Nvidia is way lacking in Linux support
this memory bug has been known in the Linux community since LAST YEAR
and it is still not fixed,,,,,WAKE UP NVIDIA

The cvs version of nvclock should support fanspeed adjustment on Geforce 8800 cards. It has been tested by several users and they said it worked but myself I don't have a 8800 nor another geforce8 model. I hope to add some other changes to CVS soon and then I'll just release a new beta.

Further if a card uses a ADT7473 sensor I wouldn't recommend to manually change the fanspeed although NVClock allows it. The reason is that this sensor controls the fanspeed based on the temperature.

Thunderbird you rock
i will try your cvs rev and look forward to a new beta
by the way,,, my 8800 does have a ADT7473 sensor and i was hoping
to use nvclock to monitor the temps
right now nvidia-settings gives me GPU temp but not diode or ambient

P.S. is there a way to add support for memory utilization like "free memory"

heya Thunderbird

here is the error i get
Quote:
nvclock -i
It seems your card isn't officialy supported in NVClock yet.
The reason can be that your card is too new.
If you want to try it anyhow [DANGEROUS], use the option -f to force the setting(s).
NVClock will then assume your card is a 'normal', it might be dangerous on other cards.
Also please email the author the pci_id of the card for further investigation.
[Get that value using the -i option].

zero@vger ~ $ nvclock -i -f
-- General info --
Card: Unknown Nvidia card
Architecture: NV50 A2
PCI id: 0x0
GPU clock: -2147483.750 MHz
Bustype: PCI

-- Memory info --
Amount: 768 MB
Type: 128 bit SDR
Clock: -2147483.648 MHz
if there is any other info i can supply that will help let me know
and thank you

The version you are using is not the cvs version. The cvs version still shows 0.8 beta2 but it identifies a geforce8 correctly. It also correctly shows the memory type, the shader clocks and more.

How did you download the program? You need to use the cvs commands listed on the sourceforge page.

Default Re: Fan control in Linux

They are at http://www.sf.net/projects/nvclock -> CVS Repository:
cvs -dserver:anonymous@nvclock.cvs.sourceforge.net:/cvsroot/nvclock login

cvs -z3 -dserver:anonymous@nvclock.cvs.sourceforge.net:/cvsroot/nvclock co -P nvclock

To prevent confusion I have adjusted the version number to 'beta3 from CVS'. I hope this works.
