I have NV's performance installed, to speed up my fan when playing games... do I need to uninstall it before using RT? Or will RT overtake the options, ( ie... fan speed )

yea it will probably cause a problem, just because they will both be trying to do something. try to disable NV performance first, or uninstall it.

in Rivatuner you "Should" be able to completely adjust the fan speed to whatever you want. so when gaming go to 80% or whatever you want, then go lower when kjust on the computer. you can even make start-up profiles. give it a try.

well, I uninstalled performance from NV, installed RT, tried to set up the threshold settings for automatic fan speed control and it wont go to the threshold screen. Not sure whats going on, I uninstalled. I'll have to mess with this tomorrow.

try using eVGA Precision, it's the best program I've found for overclocking, monitoring, and adjusting fan speeds for Nvidia cards. not to mention that it has 10 profiles you can make. I have 1 set for load on startup, for increase fan speed. 2 for monderate gaming, and 3 for extreme gaming where the cards Cranked up. thats all I'm using for now. but I will say that i like the clean professional look, and the clean freindly UI of precision much much more than RivaTuner. Give precision a try.

I'll take a look....I posted the issue to a forum for RT, and they gave me a link thats for the older version, but says it works for this version too... but the differences are that in the tutI was using first, everything looked and worked jusdt as the pics and text said it should, till I got to the threshold settings, theres had the add ( + ) button to go ahead and create the core temp thresholds for the fan speed, the 2.10 version I had didnt give me that add button, the link's version of doing this says to use driver level.. the first used low-level... so now I'm not too sure whats what. Could be again for some reason I dont have this option available?? I know its only a 9800GT but...??
I'll take a look at it Gunther.. thanks man.

Justb a quick note.. I did the other tut, and got things worked out in RT, Still havent figured out why I dont see the temps and fan profile shown in the OSD during game play... but I'll get it figured out...but yet another question...
I was going to run fraps and RT during game play... any problems with these apps using resources and inhibiting game play? ( Cod4, Quake4, Crysis...)
Frame rates in CoD4 were strange....I'll try to get a screen shot from fraps if i can with the display shown....

fps were great for me in COD4. ran very very smooth. and halflife 2 i got an average of over 200 fps. lol it's great.


you having a Quad core cpu, should be completely fine with running those while gaming. I download music while gaming. Go for it

RT isn't necessarily the easiest program to learn to use but once you do you will thank yourself for spending the time learning it.

I had it running last night on CoD4 and Quake4.. the auto fan setting are working. ( I think ) but I still havent gotten it to show up on my screen during game play like fraps will..but atleast the fan settings are working so far.. but even with it @ 80%, its still warm..this case just stays warm.. even with three fans.. Back to see if I can get the OSD to work...also looking to see on the web if I can find some good clock speeds for the card..I will probably look at the manufactured OC'd 9800's to see whats a good starting point.

Yeah, I've been looking at all the OC and SOC clocks on some cards at Newegg, still not sure where to start.. guess its gonna be trial and error.. stock is 600/900/1500...in RT though.. I noticed that the upper number on the slider for mem was only like 1325...alot of the OC versions of this card are running like 1800-1900 mem?? Gonna have to start getting some advoce and see whats the numbers I should be looking for on this card.. the 1GB version I'm running isnt too common, so OC versions arent seen. But I'll be searching here in just a minute to see ....honestly, my card wasnt even on the Nvidia site for comparison..:sarc:.

Oh.. and I got the OSD running now...:D

Any good free benching apps? or should I just go ahead and pay for the goodstuff..( 3dMark??) This thing isnt breaking any records.. but I want to be able to OC safely on the card for game play only so I was looking for something to run stress testing in OC on the card. Thanks all!!

well you can download a trial of 3DMark06, and vantage. I'd do Mark06, it's more popular still. its a great program. and it sort of test your stability of Oc also. not actually tests the OC, but you'll know if it's not stable. cuz you wont finish a benchmark.
