I can't load your page, dugg too much? I could use an extra boost, anything to get nexuiz running a little better..
What cost comes with overclocking?

A year ago, on my other computer (using a nvidia legacy card), I tried different overclocking settings to test things out. The worst thing that happened was a lockup. But I was not really caring about the card... take care.

sweet app!

also does this save the speed settings, and restore them after a reboot?

There's actually a similar thread in the forums with some discussion and information on how to use Coolbits and Nvidia's own overclocking tool here (http://www.ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=175436).

@specrock it restores it to factory settings after each reboot
@nalmeth: it should be up http://71.243.33.119:60//tutorials/overclockin-tut.html

There should be a tool like rivatuner. I want to unlock some extra rendex pipes and automatically overclock to get the XGL/compiz running more smoothly. :P So, coders, port this app to ubuntu. ;)
