I just got a new Msi Geforce FX 5900, installed the 53.03 Dets and ran it a few days @ stock speeds so I could make sure it ran all my games ok. I then used Coolbits to overclock it and upped speeds from 400\850 to 460\960 and it ran with no probs at all. I set it to apply these speeds at start up and rebooted it to make sure every thing was ok, and it was the new speeds were there. But I have noticed that after a shut down the speeds set them selves to 460\850. I have tried 460\940 but still after a shut down it goes back to 460\850. Rebooting and it keeps the settings it just after a shut down. I have used coolbits on my last 4 cards and never had this before. Anyone else had this prob before. I am thinking it might have some thing to do with the twin speed fans only spinning slow at start up. But I am just guessing. Temp of the card is solid at 45C. any ideas. :confused:

This is the card

Its still doing it I have uninsalled the drivers a couple of times, but next day back to 450\850. Auto detect sets the speed at 461\974 but it looses these after a couple of shutdowns.

No Nvida Supports coolbits, it even overclocks the card for you at a safe level, with the new FX cards.
Coolbits is a reg hack that unlocks the speed setting for nvidia cards. Nvidia has put these settings there for peeps to use.
