Consider that the clock settings aren't necessarily stored in the registry. – Tom Wijsman Aug 31 '11 at 18:02

You used to be able to do the Coolbits registry hack with older Nvidia drivers, but not anymore. You can, however, use the Nvidia System Tools to expand the Nvidia control panel with overclocking tools. This is the only way (without the use of third party, non-Nvidia software) to overclock your video card now.

Yes, but the Nvidia System Tools can't recognize my Nvidia graphics card, so it can't launch. – wizlog Aug 31 '11 at 20:45
