Default Windows 7 GPU

I've searched and searched for a tool that allows me to overclock a GPU in Windows 7. Nothing yet.. ideas?

I have an ATI GPU running in 7 that I overclocked with the software that came with the GPU. Check the CD that came with your video card.

Can't use the bios to overclock the GPU clocks itself, you can use the BIOS to change the frequency at which the PCI-E slot operates.

Yea, ATI Catalyst works in 7, I have an XFX 8800GTS, RivaTuner is what I use in XP but it doesn't seem to work in 7.

I use RivaTuner to set up fan profiles for my 8600GT. While the active display for temperatures is not continually displayed on the taskbar (because Microsoft thought it was a good idea to automatically hide it even though I specifically tell it not to), it is operating. It only displays when I have RivaTuner open.

Who makes your 8800? I would suggest Evga Precision as that is what I used when I had my 9600GT, but that's for only Evga cards, I believe. Possibly Nvidia System Tools.
