Not true. You can do it with the EXE. Keep in mind that with some games the main executable is not the first program you run, like a launcher.

If you disable DC for the launcher, for example, as soon as you run the game from it DC will be enabled again if the launcher exits. You have to turn off DC for the main exe.

My furmark score went from a 3800 to 4350 when I ran it without DC.

Could use a few reps, btw. :-)

To set the Nvidia control panel to not downclock in any particular game or program just do this. Just hit the add button and then browse to the program you need to set up using the Nvidia control panel. After that choose "Prefer maximum performance" for the program you choose then hit apply. The second shot shows the settings used for the in game application control which tends to work best for games like Crysis.

Is this suggesting that we go back to that version? I'm at 190.62.
190.57 isn't even listed at nVidia's site. At least not for GTX295.

Nobody is suggesting that you go back to that version, i was just posting an update. These are the latest Opengl 3.2 drivers , and they are on nvidia's site but only for developers
