Default Just bought a 7950GT!

Absolutly love it, so much faster and smoother than my old 7600GT, and plus when all my games are maxed out with max resolution the fan isnt even audible

Now onto the main point of this post, ive got some software with it called "winfox", according to the instructions its like a programme to tinker with your display settings and make the most of the card(as it says) and plus you can overclock within this programme aswell.

Just want to know is this worth installing or is it going to be "bloatware" that isnt really going to benefit me?

you could do all that through your nvidia display options... and if you want to overclock just download coolbits and you'll be able to overclock through your nvidia display options too

and that was a very nice buy, hope you enjoy in the future as well

It should say Clock Frequency Settings, if you installed coolbits.

yes, you must download coolbits first, then you can do it through the nvidia display.. lemme link you, it overrights registry files and lets you overclock with nvidia's display

http://www.overclockers.com.au/files/CoolBits.reg

its only a few bytes.. but don't be scared.. its not a virus

I downloaded coolbits, extracted the files, then double clicked on the reg file, it said do i want to add this to........... so i said ok and it said successfully added to registry but nothing new has come on nvidia control panel or the nview desktop manger? i restarted my pc aswell but that didnt work, any ideas whats going on

EDIT. i found something to change my clock speed on Nvidia control panel, it was memory clock frequency and 3d clock frequency and it could find my optimal overclocking, does it sound like i found it or was this facility always on the control panel and i just didnt notice? nobody told me i needed to click on view and change from standard to advanced to be able to get the option, no wonder i couldnt see it
