only half the program works,i can adjust fsb agp bus and mem timings but no advanced or temps etc.
I read over at nforcehq that a bios update is required for full functionality and you guessed right abit have not released a bios with full support for this util yet.
looks like it could be good for on the fly tweaks when it eventually works

yep, it stinks so far, your much better off simply going into the BIOS. I'm not sure why Nvidia bothered to release this thing

Eh, I think it's good to keep around for FSB changes. Think I might test it for heating experiments =P

It sucks for my MSI Delta ILSR. I can adjust the ram and agp freq, but other than that, all I can do is look at the info it collects on my ram and CPU, I am unable to click the other buttons, which I assume means that they are not supported.

Well, I decided to download it for the hell of it. Nothing much really. I am content in my BIOS.

I have cold boot problems at anything over 205x11(with a xp2400), so with the util I can boot up and tweak it to 211*11 in windows, better than a poke in the eye with a burnt stick

I only get the basic fsb,agp and mem timings with my asus a7n8x deluxe rev2.0 and the latest 1007 bios

Seems like Nvidia is trying to copy RealOne

Whatever happened to just using the native Windows widgets?

Yes, aside from the "WHOOP-DEE" pic, the interface looks exactly like RealOne. It's flat out terrible. I really don't understand why so many programs choose to make their own GUI now, it's much slower that way. It's the same reason I use Office2k instead of OfficeXP, because they added to the interface really making it slower to open dialog boxes. Dumb move MS

Anyway, this program wasn't worth the time I took to download it, SpeedFan has been software overclocking a lot longer before this thing was released. Only thing I'll applaud NV on is that the program is universal to all NForce2 models. That could provide overclocking hope I suppose for those people with cheap NForce2 boards that were OC limited before... Maybe

Basic stuff for me too with my A7N8X deluxe and Bios 1007. Only just started overclocking tho, and it was this that got me going. So useful for the wrong reason!!

You can't change your voltage with this (or even see them), you can only select CAS T (RP) in whole numbers (ie can't do 2.5), and most of the program can't even be accessed.

There really isn't a point to this utility. If you don't know how to change your FSB in the BIOS, then you shouldn't be doing it with this program either.
