NiBiTor is a NVIDIA based GPU BIOS editor similar to the Radeon BIOS Editor for AMD cards, with a very wide range of options. NiBiTor features all of your common overclocking attributes such as clock adjustments, voltage adjustment and fan speed settings. However NiBiTor features something not found in any non BIOS related application and that is the ability to change the timings on your VRAM, the same way you do with system RAM. As you may guess, this type of tweaking is only for the most experienced overclockers and I do not recommend BIOS based overclocking/tweaking for anyone that is not experienced already in doing so. In other words, “noobs” stay away (our Webmaster said he was a “noob”).

NVTweak, formerly known as Coolbits, is an extremely simple tweak tab unlock inside the NVIDIA Control Panel to allow clock and fan adjustment from within the Control Panel. This is another piece of software that is pretty dated and did not work for me using the 310.33 Beta Drivers. However I have used this in the past and found it to be very useful for adding an extremely simple tab in the Control Panel for basic overclocking. You can try this if you are running an older driver closer to the softwares last update and maybe it will still function. I can’t recommend this software due to the lack of features and updates.

NVIDIA Inspector is a powerful utility I personally use in addition to my overclocking app of choice. NVIDIA Inspector features some unique HW Monitoring features, such as VPU (Video Processing Unit) load. Have you ever noticed while watching a Blu-Ray or any GPU accelerated video that your GPU load never gets above 15% usage? This is due to the fact of how NVIDIA implemented video processing in their architecture and how GPU load takes this into account. Using NVIDIA Inspector I’m showing 55% load on the VPU and an 8% load on the GPU while watching The Godfather on Blu-Ray. However I use NVIDIA inspector the most for its driver tweaks and utilities. Don’t you hate it when you update your drivers and you have to re-enter all your 3D Profiles if you do a clean install or use a driver cleaner after uninstalling? Well with NVIDIA Inspector you can export all your game profiles into a small file and then import them back in once you have installed the new driver. Another cool feature about NVIDIA Inspector with drivers is the ability to use IQ settings that are not found in the stock NVIDIA CP. You can see an example of this type of IQ tweak here. Now of course NVIDIA Inspector includes all of your overclocking components, including core/shader/memory clock adjustments along with voltage, fan and obviously hardware monitoring. This is a great piece of software for many accounts and is one I always make sure to have installed on my PC.
