    I need a handful of pro overclockers that are interested in testing the ATITool successor.

    Reply here or email me (w1zzard@techpowerup.com) what makes you pro and why you should test it. At this time only NVIDIA users. GeForce 8 and up. If it breaks your PC it's your own problem.

    ooooh oooooooooooooh right here, i am a pro overclocker.

    i overclock everything, ram, cpu, gfx, you name it, if it can run faster i will make it do so!

    have a handful of nvidia cards i can test or have access too, including a GTX295, GTX260 c216, 9800GTX+, 9600GT and 8600GT.

    i am always in the market for the latest GPU's and i always overclock them, without a shadow of a doubt, makes me a perfect candidate for you W1z.

    I believe i should help test as i love providing constructive feedback to help better just about anything, especially your awesome home brew apps like GPU-z. the TPU community is simply put, the best online community i have ever been a part of, and I'd gladly take the opportunity to lend a hand, especially since lending a hand means overclocking and stability testing :toast:

    if you want any more evidence/info please contact me, i am very very interested in this application W1z!

    I would like to beta test.

    I'm not sure if I rank as a professional, but I am a overclocking enthusiast for sure.

    I have overclocked many different types of Nvidia cards through out the years as well as anything else I can get my hands on that can be overclocked.

    Plus I would like to do something like this to give back to the community.

    I don`t have high end hardware but I could test entry level. Some thing like 8400gs, 9500GT, 9600gso, 9600GT, 9800GT. If find me of any use I would like to help.

    I think I am a pro overclocker, at least a pro nVidia overclocker. The first thing I do after putting the card in my machine is overclock it. I live for taking hardware and pushing it further than it is supposed to go. I love taking something weaker and making it outperform a more expensive part.

    Plus I've got G92 and GT200 cards at my disposal, well the GT200b GTX285 will be here on Monday. I sent in my GTX260 to step-up to the GTX285.

    I'll pick up a G80 card also, if will help, I can get one pretty cheap.

    I would like to help but my backup card, the 8800GTS 640 doesnt overclock for shit so i dont see how it will help.

    On the other hand, when you need to test ATI cards my HD 4870 is quite a decent overclocker and i'd be willing to try it out with new ATI Tool.

    I can help out. I use a GTX260 and know it's overclocking limitations already. I can provide any files needed to help with the tools stability.

    Would not mind beta testing all though the only ATI card i am using is my 2900XT.

    OS's i am using are XP x64, Vista x64 and Win 7 beta.

    yeah plus this fills a hole that all the 2900xt users desperately need. especialy in vista. but especialy at all :p btw hes looking for Nvidia users only :( so you should be fine AsRock

    hope that changes in the future :)

    btw i'm 2900xt 1gb gddr4 if thats ever something you need, its different at least. [it is a little less compatible with things typically]

    I would like to try.

    ...I have the 260's with the digital VRMS, and I can test both single card and SLI functionality if you would like. I also like to play with voltages. :D Anything to help.

    Id like to beta test.


    i overclock for fun and i do reviews so i need to know what im doing. i over volt and stress test constantly. that and the fact that im running 4 GPU's puts me in a small group of people that could test that aspect of the program. 4 gpu compatability bug crashes etc.

    Little bit off the topic, but I would be happy to help if, and when, you need testing done for ATI cards.
    I might not be a pro, but I'm willing to take the effort to provide you with constructive feedback.

    I can't say that I'm the best overclocker, but i have been using ATi Tool for a while, and can give my 9800GX2 a run in the mud for a bit.
