    Ok, i just uninstalled the old Win XP 158.22 driver and installed the new 162.18 and after i launch Rivatuner i get this message:

    Warning! Rivatuner has not been tested with the currently installed driver.

    It is strongly recomended to upgrade Rivatuner to a new version, otherwise it will not work properly because it is not curently supported.

    What's going on here? According to a Rivatuner description page at Guru3d it does support 160.xx and 162.xx driver families. Is there a newer version out cause i havem't seen it?Basically i use this utility to manage the vid cards fan speed, i haven't tried to oc yet, can i continue doing at least that or not?

    I got the same message when I downloaded the latest drivers for my card also..I use RivaTuner to increase the fan speed from 59% to 79% at start up :p when I got that message I was worried but after I restarted the computer the fan speed was set to 79% so it does work fine :D

    All that message is telling you is that it hasn't been tested with that driver version. It is just because that driver came out after that last release of Rivatuner. It doesn't mean Rivatuner won't work.
