Nvidia control panel wont let me OC anymore

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Help! I have been using the Nvidia control panel to OC my GPUs for awhile with no problem suddenly this new feature I have never seen coem up before everytime i change the device settings for GPU clock speeds it runs this dumb test that says testing new clock speed and it fails it every time not letting me change the speed i was just setting it yesterday to 800 MHz ran with no problem,

someone have an older version on control panel or know how to turn this operation off so it doesnt test the speed it trips every time ugh.

I just want a copy of the older Nvidia control panel iahve it on vista 1.5.1600.00 the new control panel is version 1.5.2400.1 the newer version added a test button below the clock settings now it runs this test fails it every time and wont let you change clock speeds can someone emaill me nvidia control panel version 1.5.1600.00 for 32 bit XP?

Rivatuner has given me worse results I ran test using the nvidia control panel with drivers 174.16 which seem to work best and compared my 3dmark06 scores with using Riva vs, nvidia control panel at same exact settings and in all the runs my 3dmark06 scores were 2,000 points higher when i let nvidia control panel do the OCing, 18,000's the riva scores were all 16,000's unless im missing something in the setup of riva the nvidia control panel OCing 2K points better now if I can just get a copy of an older version of nvidia control panel before they added that test run before you can apply new OC settings cause now it just fails everytime and wont let you change the speeds!

Your missing something. All GPU overclocking programs do EXACTLY THE SAME THING. The 2K difference was due to something else if they were used properly.
Once again...

I wish i knew what i was missing then, I just tried evga precision also and compared same exact OC settings and results i wrote down riva and evga both give me scores in 16,000 on 3dmark06. but with nvidia control panel I was getting on the 18,000's!

So if anyone has nvidia controlpanel version 1.5.1600.00 let me knowthat does nothave the added badfeature of testing and failing your new oC setting evertime you apply.

The newer version im stuck with when i added XP on new HD is 1.5.2400.1 this version has the test button and the automatic test that comes up and fails my setting s and wont let me applythem so if anyone has older version of nvidia control panel let me know OCing using this had better scores then riva on both XP and vista for me
