    Default NVIDIA Releases 337 Linux Driver With Overclocking, Better EGL

    Phoronix: NVIDIA Releases 337 Linux Driver With Overclocking, Better EGL

    This past weekend I wrote about NVIDIA planning to release a huge Linux driver update that would finally bring overclocking support under Linux to GeForce 400/500/600/700 series hardware. That milestone has now been realized with the 337.12 Beta driver release and besides overclocking it has a bunch of other features...

    Work for me aswell on Arch Linux with 3.14.

    I updated the PKGBUILDs for nvidia-beta and nvidia-beta-utils from the AUR myself. Just get rid of the patch part in the prepare() and delete its checksum.

    Working on Fedora 20 as well.

    But how can you activate the Coolbits option in xorg.conf? For me it didn't work unlocking the overclocking feature.

    There is supposed to be a CoolBits part in the README, but I can't find it.

    Added the ability to over- and under-clock certain GeForce GPUs in the GeForce GTX 400 series and later. For GPUs that allow it, an offset can be applied to clock values in some clock domains of some performance levels. This clock manipulation is done at the user's own risk. See the README documentation of the "CoolBits"
    http://in.download.nvidia.com/XFree8...DME/index.html

    Where is it?

    Code:
    Section "Device"
        Identifier     "Device0"
        Driver         "nvidia"
        VendorName     "NVIDIA Corporation"
        Option         "Coolbits" "1"
    EndSection
    Didn't do it for me.

    According to http://us.download.nvidia.com/XFree8...igoptions.html you have to set it to 8 for Overclocking after 400 Series.

    I can confirm that Overclocking works now with Fermi, my GTX 560 TI now run on 900 mhz and Memory 4150 mhz stable.

    BTW: If you want Overclocking and Fan Control at the same time you have to set Coolbits to 12.

    Anyways nice Release got a little Performance boost in all my Games.

    Not that it matters, really, since nvidia-beta has been updated. But it appears your method of updating seems to have ignored the new nvidia-uvm.ko that should be installed with nvidia.ko [which bumping the pkgver wouldn't have done]. It's bad practice to just bump the beta drivers like that, without actually checking to see what nvidia has changed around and adjusting your PKGBUILD to match.
