thanks I figured they wouldnt work. Also A general video card overclocking question or two.
Using rivatuner am I overclocking the card itself as if I were to pull it out and put it in another PC would the overcloking settings be permaneant untill I change them back?
Also I have a ip35-e I was wondering if there are any settings in the bios that overclock videocards or compliment the rivatuner that I should be thinking about.
Also just wondering if any motherboards have overclocking for the videocard like it does the cpu and ram or is videocard overclocking basically always done using rivartuner etc.

OC'd settings via software-based utilities like RT, Coolbits, nTune, etc. aren't permanently etched into the card's BIOS... unlike for example flashing the card w/ a modded BIOS which contains tighter RAM timings, higher default core clock, etc.

You are only temporarily changing the card clocks. If you reboot your clocks will be lost. You can set up profiles in RT so the card will only OC/change fan speed when you launch 3D applications.
You have to flash the card to make permanent changes.
There is a gfx card BIOS, but it isn't the same as your Mobo BIOS. You can't get in there and do anything...you have to flash the card.
Edit: too slow.

I use AtiTool 0.26, is Rivatuner better for OCing?

got it clocked to 666 with stock cooling havent messed with the ram yet.
Question: when you overclock via software like this say for 10 minutes using rivatuner and then you uninstall it and have stock speeds running. If I was planning on doing a step up program or what ever reason I send it to evga can they tell it was overlcoked at all even for 10 minutes?

No way to tell as far as I know.
eVGA doesn't care if you OC the card. It doesn't void your warranty or anything.

As far as I know eVGA doesn't care that card was OCed when you're stepping up. Unless there are physical modifications to the card. Just make sure, if you're panning on stepping up in 90 days or less, have ALL of the stuff that came with the card when you send it in.
