You have the new NEDs and you cannot get Cool Bits to workie? gadzooks has it all worked out for you in step-by-step instructions. And remember if you hose your box while doing this, it is YOUR FAULT. And we will all laugh at you about it too. Just remember, we have already been there too often.
There is a way to bypass the incompatibilities that the latest Detonator series drivers have with the Cool Bits registry hack. After installing drivers that do not allow video card over clocking by the Cool Bits hack.
1. Make sure the Display Properties window is CLOSED.
2. Insert the nVCpl.dll from an older set of detonator drivers ( I use the 6.49's) into C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM, and click YES when asked to over write the current file.
3. Use the Cool Bits hack like normal, reboot, click Enable Clock Frequency Adjustments in [H]ardware Options, reboot again.
4. Tweak to your heart's content.
5. Lather rinse and repeat.
What this trick does is replaces the control panel extension of the nVidia drivers that doesn't have the Hardware options tab with an extension that does. If you have any comments or questions send them to firstname.lastname@example.org.
