So i've spent 3 days now trying every single overclock program, non of which allow me to overclock my 8800 gts... Any ideas anyone? i mean it shows the settings when i set them but of course the core temperature doesnt change the slightess so effectively it does not work it just says its working.

With ntune is just doesnt work.. doesnt keep the settings on reboot nor does it change the temperature on your video card when u overclock it


ATITool gives a error message saying
The video card you selected for overclocking in ATITool does not seem to be used by Windows.
Visual testing has been disabled.
To fix this, go to Display Properties, Settings and enable the monitor output of the card.

^^ no idea wut that means if someone wants to clear it up i would be more than happy..

Any suggestions would be awsome thx.

While I don't overclock anymore - I'd suggest setting all of the executables for your overclocking programs to run as an administrator and to run in XP SP2 compatibility mode.

Another option would be to disable User Account Control (UAC) and see if that helps.

supposely with Vista the only way to overclock is by doing Bios Flash and bios editor, but it requires you to have a floppy drive which i don't have so looks like im out of lucky and will have to stick with the stock settings :huh:
