CoolBits working great with 12.90 drivers here too. One other thing, what are you guys using to monitor the heat from GF2? I have a Leadtek card and the old WinFox drivers had hardware monitoring software built in, but the latest drivers don't have that cuz I guess all GF2 cards don't have hadrware monitoring... Any suggestions? Reason is cuz I'm obviously OC'ing GF2 and I would like to know what the limit is... (Is it heat related as well?)

If you use the NVmax program you can enable overclocking on WHQL drivers. I'm using the 12.41's and its no problem.
BTW I tried the 12.90's and got some strange artifacts on some menu buttons - it benched better than the 12.41's but I decided it wasn't worth the bugs.

I get best perfomance with the 12.90's. I am having some problems though, with the 12.90's I have no options to change any setings at all! What is up with this? Even if I run coolbits, there just arnt any tabs to select from for geforce 2... any help is apreciated!!
