I am trying to modify the clock frequencies in nvidia-settings. I have added the Option Coolbits 1 in my
/etc/X11/xorg.conf file and restarted gdm, and even my computer.
The options are now available in nvidia-settings, and I can slide the slider up and down, but when I choose "Apply" it simply reverts them back to default. I even tried to run nvidia-settings by way of sudo, and I got the same result.
I also installed nvclock and I am trying to modify clock and fan settings through that command-line utility, but with no avail there either. The fan speed says it is increased to 100% for example, but the fan does not change and nvidia-settings stays stable at 35% fan speed.
I am running 10.10 x86 and Nvidia driver 260.19.06 with a 9600 GT.
