For those impacted by the 100% fan speed bug present in the NVIDIA 169.07 Linux driver, there is now a community fix for this problem. NVClock 0.8 Beta 3 has been released, which (among other changes) addresses this driver bug. The major changes in NVClock 0.8 Beta 3, since it's Beta 2 release in July 2006 is GeForce 8 support, rewritten low-level GeForce 6/7 overclocking back-end, added BIOS PLL table parsing for the GeForce 6/7/8 generations, GeForce 7 AGP support, NV-CONTROL OpenGL settings, and GeForce 6 bug-fixes for pipeline modding and faking the Quadro. NVClock 0.8 Beta 3 can be downloaded from its project web-page.
