  1. Hi guys,
    So how on Earth do I OC a nVidia GPU in Vista (running driver 100.65)?
    I tried RivaTuner, but it doesn't see my driver at all; I tried with different drivers, but no luck
    I have an ASUS EN6600 on AGP; OC'ed it with no probs in XP at 380/553
    Waiting for my 8800GTS 320...
    So how do I do it?

    Have you tried ntune (run as administrator) or ati tool?

    ntune is for nVidia MCP boards, mine is not
    I thought ati tool is only for ati; i'll give it a try

    EDIT: it works!! thx a lot man!

    Glad it worked. Actually both utilites, despite their names, can run on most boards(i.e. ntune runs on non-nvidia boards, but can only oc the gpu, and ati tool can change settings on cards other than ati as well.)

    I heard nTune is better (it has good temp monitoring and better GUI)
    Thanks again

    I personally like nTune, except for me, it doesn't remember the settings I set after I reboot :(

    If you don't change your overclocking speeds often, you could flash the graphics card BIOS with the new speeds. That way it would be OS-independent.

    I'm not a big fan of flashing, if stuff goes wrong, it can go wrong horribly.

    But its nice if someone can give a step by step video card bios flashing tutorial.

    I might add it to my simple overclocking post, but its not something I'd recommend newbs to do.
