    - fan control can't make fan go below boot speeds

    blackout23: nice AdBlock icon you have there...
    Which GPU are you using?

      You're totally right! It's working. DIdn't read the text properly. Value 1 works only for GeForce cards before series 400. 8 did work for me.

        I wonder if you can set more than one bit at a time, to also enable Fan control with "4". I have to press enter when entering the values for them to take effect. Overclocked succsssfully from 782 -> 850 MHz.

          As written in the README: it is a bit mask with four bits, of course you can set multiple ones at the same time.

          E.g.

          1100 would be per-powermizer state frequencies and gpu fan speed, 0101 would be fan speed and generic under/overclocking ...

          You just have to write the binary mask as a (decimal) integer in the Xorg.conf, e.g. 15 or 9

          Kind regards,

          Fuchs

            Offsetting the memory works on my 750 Ti but the graphics clock doesn't seem to have any effect...

                Actually Nvidia is assisting better users than AMD although open source drivers are going to improve.

                  Well, it does have an effect but not onto the current graphics clock, just onto level 1's max clock and I'm not sure if the card will ever decide to clock itself to the max. My current clock stays at 1058 Mhz no matter what, the max is 1333 MHz by default.

                    Once I close the NVIDIA X Server Settings and open them again the memory transfer rate offset will double whatever I set the last time. Is that by design or a bug? So it goes from 4 to 8, from 8 to 16 and so on.

                      I'm using a not-so-recent driver with a GTX 570, so I'm not using any of the new features.

                          So not only Linux apparently supports the overclocking feature nice to see!

                              It's kinda hilarous. You get better driver support on freaking Open Indiana, which runs a Gnome 2 Desktop and is is binary compatabile with Solaris, through the Solaris NVIDIA driver than AMD on Linux.

                              Is there a way to get the Core Voltage from the NVIDIA card on Linux? Does it automatically scale with the clockspeed?

                                Any PPA available for lazy Ubuntu users, like me? :P

                                The real problem is, my laptop uses NVIDIA Optimus (730M) and I really don't know how to install this new driver alongside Bumblebee and its complex kernel modules...

                                My current driver is 331.20, very old

                                Any help appreciated. Thanks!
