    All Acer (and the others) do is use a custom bios that has the options that would allow for overclocking hidden. They also had nothing to do with the video card.

    One thing I forgot to ask previously, the fan on your card have two wires or three? If it is only a two wire fan then there is no way to control the fan speeds using software. Then the only way to do that would be to use a modded bios (the video card, not the motherboard), downloaded or modded yourself,
