Nice, this is a almost exact copy of EVGA Precision, the great thing about it is that it works with both ATI & NVIDIA cards!! ;) After some updates, this could get great! ATM i think the HUD/GUI is too large and cant find a setting to get it smaller?? But great stuff MSI, great stufff!!:toast:

Wow awesome little app, VERY much a precision feel but more compatibility, even the config menu's and OSD look exactly the same.

friggen awesome to know the 'ass' of the application is Rivatuner, thats just super duper fucking awesome IMO.

Doesn't let me unclock my ATI card. Although it does lets me mess with my voltage though. Room for improvement there. It is stupidly silly easy to change your card clocks with this, you would have thought there be more warnings.

Even though it is rivatuner under the hood, its a shame they didn't make it compatible with the Rivatuner Sidebar gadget.

/warning you have reached the end of my rant.

ironically the only things that are usually truly different are the gui's, most programs these days are almost exactly the same under the hood.

tried it with my 4870X2.. the voltage tuning is totally bugged but everything else was perfect,
but after I screwed up my card's 2D 3D's voltage with it, now the program won't let me adjust the fan speed, and every time I start a 3D program, BSOD-. - reinstall won't help, back to ATI overdrive now...

I have some issues with the software actually. When I have it on in the background it kills my performance in games such as Red Faction Guerilla. I usually have no problem getting 60fps with vsync, but with the app on it goes down to 33-40fps?? Must be a bug?
