    Agreed. I dropped Rivatuner after realizing it didn't work in 7 correctly.

    I have used Precision before. I just didn't feel like dl'ing it again.I used riva because it was already on my network drive so i didn't have to wait for it to download.. but after being about 2k points lower today because of my overclocks i think i am going to drop it again and go with Precision... BTW still use Rivatuner on my other rigs and it works great (but running XP pro)

    I've set the mode to Unlinked and I'm independently overclocking the shaders (core and memory are at stock speeds of 650 and 400mhz). Should I lower the core 25-50mhz, and try to push the shaders up more?

    Before Precision, I used Rivatuner on all my rigs. Great app, but could not get every card to load the preset clocks/settings. When I had to power down or had a power outage, it would take me 30+ minutes to get everything back up and running:shadedshu. I'm glad those days are over.

    I use W1zzard's GPU Tool for testing and finding the limits of my cards. Afterwords I use EVGA precision on my Nvidia cards for set-it-and-forget-it ease of use. Precision lacks the granularity of GPU Tool. GPU Tool is still in Beta and not suitable for everyday use, but allows me to set higher settings for benchmarking. GPU Tool is also currently works much better with ATI than Nvidia cards. I've also used RBE to modifiy the BIOS on my ATI 48xx cards. (This cured stuttering when switching from 2D to 3D, and allowed consistant higher 3D and idle voltage settings). I haven't had the courage yet to try a Nvidia BIOS editor.

    BTW: A BIG thanks to Buck Nasty for leading me to EVGA precision. Besides being a great guy and folding monster, I really like his nick. ;)

    @nastyhabits modding a nvidia BIOS isn't hard at all. ALL of my cards have a modded BIOS even my old 7900GS does.I also didn't think the ATI bios was hard to edit.(only did 1 card a 3870 all the others are nvidia)

    How do you BIOS mod the cards? I might be interested in doing so on the 9600GT to set slightly higher shader clocks/fan speeds

    You need a Nvidia BIOS editor (NiBiTor), a copy of your bios (you can get one using GPU-Z), and a Nvidia BIOS flashing tool.

    Here's a good guide to using NiBiTor http://www.softpedia.com/progScreenshots/NVIDIA-BIOS-Editor-Screenshot-4977.html You can also download it from there.

    To save your card's BIOS using GPU-Z, click on the little icon to the right of "BIOS Version" on the main screen of GPU-Z. Or you can download a copy from your cards manufacturer.

    Your card's manufacturer should also have a bios flashing tool available for download.

    All that said, that's just a generic description of what you need. I would seek advice from P_O_S PC before I went any further.

    If you want to flash your ATI card, go to our very own TPU forum on RBE here: http://forums.techpowerup.com/forumdisplay.php?f=63

    I think Fahmon is screwed up as it is still taking ~1m50 for each 1%

    Yes for the one that is running in the bottom. The top one had aroud 34000 PPD. Look at the lower right hand corner and subtract the score from the lower one and you have 34000 PPD. Sweet. Now I know what I want for Christmas

    Fits, I'm gonna call you out. I know a little about GPU2 and the frames/progress you show are for a 9800gtx/GTS250. Should I go into more detail and show everyone? Do not post that crap in this section.

    im fine with that. i wouldn't believe me either even if i was a reputable source of info unless pics where supplied.

    i don't have any reason to "crap" in this thread nor do i have any g92 or gtx260's in my possession.

    im not going to argue but i know these are something new and i will comment no more.

    Then why post any of it? Could it be you are addicted to any form of attention good or bad? I can also mess with the system clocks and exaggerate ppd.
