If ya don't want to use RT, then can ya adjust the fan speed with Nv CP?
i'm trying to get my 8800 gts to overclock according to your guide. I set everything up exactly as you done it but when i run a 3d app it doesnt change into the 3d profile and overclock the card.
Any idea what might be wrong?
think i found the answe but not sure.. but rt cant change it any longer as it is controlled by the forceware nowadays...am i right?
I think you might have missed a step. Delete everything you've done (including items in the launcher) and try again.
I dont think 3D is ever detected on Vista...
Guys Im trying to find the plug in to read the temperatures of my Core 2 Duo , but I cannot find it anywhere. Help would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks in advanced.
Thanks a lot unwinder ,really appreciate your help.
RivaTuner 2.0 fan speed & Overclock Guide
Written by Derek
Derek's guide is already linked in the first posting.
I actually didn't know that Guru3D even stickied my guide. I wrote it back in April and thought I posted it on these forums.
I rewrote the guide for the v2.02 release of RivaTuner.
Any comments or suggestions are welcome.
Just a few notes to make your guide more perfect, if you wish.
Correct. UAC is designed to warn user when any application with administrative rights is launched. RT uses administrative rights so you should confirm its startup manualy each time when UAC is enabled.
It would be more correct to use %SysDir% macro instead of explicit path to OS. I.e. %SysDir%\shutdown.exe
By the way: the technique covered in this guide is good for emulating temprature based fan control on cheap display adapters, which lack hardware temperature based fan controller IC. Also, it is good if you wish to link fan speeds with something besides temperature (e.g. change fan speeds depending on hardware acceleration status).
8800 series have advanced fan controller, so you can simply reprogram it then even unload RT and fan speed will be changed by hardware controller. You can see controller's parameters in auto fan speed control rule window in low-level fan control tab. So using hardware controller instead of "emulation" is probably better solution for this family.
After reading through the guidesposted in here, I have a question :
How do I control the fan speed om my second gfx card ?
Have searched google and found nothing useful.
Can control the fan speed on the fisrt just fine, but not the second one.
Fan cycle at 75%, giving :
1 card is an Asus 8800GTS 640MB at 2000rpm
2 card is an Inno3D 8800GTS 640MB still at 1500rpm (no change on this at a 100%)
Any that can help me ?
Using Vista Home Premium 32bit and 162.22 WHQL drivers for Vista.
Specs are on the left
Thanks Unwinder. I've made the changes and quoted you in the Tutorial. I'll look into advancing the tutorial for the other options you mentioned.
1) SLI is NOT officially supported by RT at all
2) You can control both fans in SLI via RT only under XP
3) Use search, I gave the same answer to SLI/Vista fans at least 3 times during the last couple of weeks! I'm not a robot for typing the same again, again and again.
Thanks for the answer Unwinder and thank for a great tool too
Will search next time
Last question : Will SLI fan control be a future feature in RT or no plans for that at all ?
Unlikely. I'm definitively not a big fan of SLI.
I have the Gainward 6600GT Golden Sample Card.
Just installed Riva Tuner 2.02, on the Driver Settings page I have found the following .dll's - nview.dll - 110.64 nvshell.dll - 110.64 and nvwdmcpl.dll - 110.64 My display drivers are 94.20. Should the 110.64.dll's be there, or have I failed to delete them from previous drivers?
It must be so, nView is a driver independent component developed by different NVIDIA developers team and it always had different version.
Please STOP flooding this thread with offtopic questions! This is a thread about RT guides ONLY. Next offtopic question will be simply removed from it.
Thanks. A few more minor notes:
Probably you were talking about ATITool? ATITool and ATITrayTools are different tools, and ATITrayTools doesn't work with NVIDIA hardware.
This is the case for this version too. Test button availability is OS specific issue, not RT version specific. Currently it is available only under Windows XP and disabled under Vista because Vista NVIDIA drivers have some issues with stress-testing implementation.
