    Welcome to TPU. I see W1z's great software has attracted another forum member. I realize you are here to post a problem but most in your shoes end up sticking around. :)

    I had the same problem on my GTX 460 recently. I was told here it should work but it would not update ever like yours. My 5850 is back in and need to try again but iirc that worked ok in the past.

    Anyone?

    i think the 9600 gt does not have support for this feature and the nvidia driver incorrectly reports it as available

    I have a 9500 GT and GPU Z read, GPU, memory controller and video engine loads correctly with the latest drivers (with older ones only reads 0% all the time)

    But my 460 should have worked right W1z? I tried a few diff 3D apps at a few diff points in time.

    Hi all respondents,
    Thanks for helping me. Meanwhile, I have updated my NVIDIA driver to 260.99, and, now it does work real nice.
    So, thanks again, much obliged.
    Issue closed.

    Interesting. Maybe I was running an unsupported beta driver or something.

    Yes indeed, RenanMotta, thanks for your response, but I already did so some time ago (see my message of Nov 15, 2010 07:06 PM).
    Kind regards

    I have seen some 9600GT's that show nothing more than clocks, GPU temp, Fan speed in GPU-z. Could be a lower-end piece that has limited monitoring support through drivers. Odds are that's your situation..no way around it but a different vid card if that's the case. Nothing GPU-z is doing wrong, just a limitation of what it can read due to card design.
    ericmelse says thanks.
