Overclocking NVIDIA GPU transparently?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Is there a way to overclock NVIDIA video cards in the control panel (totaly transparently to the user)? If you use MSI afterburner or EVGA precision, the program has the run in the system tray right? This is what I don't like. I'd prefer a method to overclock that is "hidden",

You can always do it at the hardware level by ripping the card's BIOS, editing it using Nibitor to be overclocked, and flashing it to the card. Then it treats those clocks as its stock clocks.

Was thinking about that but it breaks the warranty doesn't it? I like to sell overclocked PCs (CPU/GPU) but in a transparent manner. If the card breaks and the person has to RMA it, he wouldn't know how to reflash the stock BIOS you see.

I'm pretty sure NVidia system tools (independent dl, adds to the control panel) works the way you want. I haven't used it much, though, it may not save OC when completely closed out. Although, why? AB monitors all sorts of useful stuff that you can retrieve with a simple click, and it's not exactly an intrusive or resource hungry program.
