My System Specs

Default RivaTuner 2.07 realeased!

Minor bugfixes:

- Fixed default values for Direct3D Intellisample slider and "Clamp negative mipmap LOD bias" option.
- State of global OSD visibility setting is no longer lost when any other option is being changed immediately after changing the global OSD visibility setting in the properties of bundled RivaTunerStatisticsServer application.
- Minor UI and localization fixes.

What's new:

- Added ForceWare 171.xx, 173.xx and 174.xx drivers families support.
- Updated databases for Detonator and ForceWare drivers. Added databases for ForceWare 169.09, 169.13, 169.17, 169.21, 169.25, 169.28, 169.32, 169.38, 169.39, 171.16, 171.17, 171.23, 173.65, 173.80, 174.12, 174.13, 174.16, 174.23 and 174.31.
- Added Catalyst 7.11, 7.12, 8.1 and 8.2 drivers detection. Please take a note that both Catalyst 8.1 and 8.2 share the same binary file versions, so both Catalyst 8.1 and 8.2 will be detected as Catalyst 8.1 or newer.
- Updated Catalyst 7.11, 7.12, 8.1 and 8.2 certified SoftR9x00 patch script (for Windows 2000/XP drivers only).
- Updated PCI DeviceID database for both ATI and NVIDIA graphics processors. Added PCI DeviceIDs for RADEON 2600XT AGP, RADEON 2900GT, RADEON HD 3870 X2 and GeForce 8800GTS 512 SKUs. Please take a note that RivaTuner doesn't provide official Crossfire support, so RADEON HD 3870 X2 support can be limited to single GPU functionality under certain conditions.
- Unlocked previously available experimental RV635 graphics processors support. Thanks to Andrey Vorobiev for testing RivaTuner with ATI RADEON HD3650.
- Added experimental G94 graphics processors support.
- Added powerful built-in task scheduler module.
- Improved built-in launcher module
- Improved experimental SLI support. Please take a note that I have no SLI rig for testing and development, so all SLI related improvements are done blindly and RivaTuner still doesn't provide official SLI support:
- Improved compatibility with Vista UAC
- Improved RV6xx graphics processors family support
- Updated RivaTunerStatisticsServer v2.5.0 bundled utility
- Improved hardware monitoring module:
- Improved driver-level fan control module:
- Now all low-level profiles are linked with target display device by physical display adapter location identifier instead of logical display adapter name. Due to this change all previously created low-level profiles will be invisible to new version and you will need to recreate them.
- Improved generic RivaTuner file format. Now all RivaTuner's files based upon this format (i.e. database build scripts, databases, presets and patch scripts) can use global autoincremental indices similar to previously supported local autoincremental indices, which greatly simplify large files editing and updating.
- Improved context help source format. Now all context help topics added to new version are represented by separate .RTF file to simplify context help translation process for third-party localization packs creators.
- MMIO protection fallback warning is no longer displayed on any MMIO range allocation failure, unprotected MMIO failure warning message has been added.
- Now power users may customize the range of scanned PCI buses to allow using RivaTuner with some sophisticated mainboards having more than 16 physical PCI buses. By default RivaTuner scans just the first 16 PCI buses for display adapter presence, however power users may extend the range of scanned PCI buses using the MaxPCIBusNum registry entry.
- Protected tabs (i.e. the tabs like "Main" in the main property sheet that cannot be hidden) are now displayed in preview area of the tab order customization window.
- Updated Easter Eggs.
- Minor UI changes and improvements.


Here it is

It's really nice to have the overclock stick on reboot now that Vista allows it to run on startup.

I can't use Rivatuner when I play COD4. I read somewhere that Riva (with built-in hardware monitoring) and punkbuster/COD4 don't get along. Anybody here can confirm this? Or offer a cure? Th system would freeze (hard-lock) and a reboot is needed. Please note that it's the only game, the only case where my system crashes. Without Riva, COD4 is fine).

My 8800GTS 640 SC OCed to 650/1010 fan speed set to 100% never had any overheating issues (MAX MAX MAX 71 Degrees celsius under worst conditions) so I assume it doesn't have anything to do with it.

My system's OC is Orthos stable 24hrs (E6420@3.2GHz@1.4V)...
