Thanks.  Is there anything I need to do to install that driver?  Do I need to remove the old one first?

Depends how you are installing them, usually you need to be in the non-Nvidia Ubuntu default driver called Noveau.

This is the output from nvidia-smi -q -d CLOCK:

- Does Graphics: 1657 MHz stand for CPU Clock?
- Does Max Clocks / Graphics: 1900 MHz means I can rise it to 1900 without any harm to the GPU?

I've noticed that chaning GPUGraphicsMemoryOffset changes Graphics precisely. Changing GPUMemoryTransferRateOffset affect Memory but a bit weird, e.g.:

Code:
Attribute 'GPUMemoryTransferRateOffset' (ubuntu:0[gpu:0]) assigned value 400.

Will set Memory to 3999 (4000 is the max value??).

Can someone with more experience provide some explanation?

So. let's say the memory is at running at 7600mhz. You put 400mhz on the GPUMemoryTransferRateOffset to reach 8GHz

Everytime, when I tried to Overclock or change Fan speed Im getting "The control display is undefined"

Only one think which working is to enable PL: "nvidia-smi -pm 1"
And set TDP: "nvidia-smi -i 0 -pl 151"



Fun speed control do not working:
-----------------------
root@ja:~# nvidia-settings -a '[gpu:0]/GPUFanControlState=1'
Unable to init server: Could not connect: Connection refused

ERROR: The control display is undefined; please run `nvidia-settings --help` for usage information.
------------------------


Overclocking do not working:
-----------------------
root@jatrovka:~# nvidia-settings -a '[gpu:0]/GPUGraphicsMemoryOffset[3]=100'
Unable to init server: Could not connect: Connection refused

ERROR: The control display is undefined; please run `nvidia-settings --help` for usage information.
--------------------------




Dont you know what to do?

Im using Ubuntu 17.10 with proprietary Nvidia drivers:

I'm searching for similar solution. How may I shut the system's xorg auto reset on reboot. Maybe after that editing the xorg will remain permanent and the display attached wont be needed...

In my case gpumanager was rewriting xorg.conf. You can check the logs: /var/log/gpu-manager.log

I solved by disabling gpumanager at startup adding nogpumanager in grub loader.
See https://askubuntu.com/a/732004 for details

THIS!!!!!!!!!!!

you absolutly dont know how much i like this guide
it solved everything ...

only 1 thing: i realized that (at least) for 1070ti is needed coolbits sets on 12 ... then i can OC every card Smiley

THANKS THANKS and again THANKS

BTW after you are able to control your fans manually you can setup tool to do it in proper (smart) way.
It was designed especially for rigs.

Hi guys,

I've been trying to overclock my GPUs on linux for way too long now and I'm about to lose my mind.

I've tried all of the advices and tips in this thread numerous times. I have tried running Ubuntu, Lubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu and Debian. 17.10 AND 16.04 versions of all these.

And no matter what I do and what version of Linux I'm running, the same problem persists: xorg.conf resets every time I reboot the system or even just log out.

Does anyone have any suggestions anymore? I have tried every possible solution I've come across while trying to troubleshoot this but nothing has worked.

My setup:

Asrock H110 pro btc+
Intel i7-7700K
4GB Crucial Ballistix DDR4-2400
5 x Zotac Geforce GTX1080ti (blower model)
2 x Corsair RM850X
32gb usb3.0 stick/some random hdd (tried running on both of these)

I'm literally clueless. Huh All help is much appreciated.

how did you install the drivers? did you just install them, have you blacklisted the other driver?

i've had that problem when used to install nvidia+cuda via the provided downloaded file (just by running .sh file if i remember correctly) - the system would work until rebooting

i solved that by installing the drivers via repository (apt-get & stuff), NOT via the install file

New driver out (390) but, apparently, still no nvidia-smi clock setting support :-/

I've tried both ways of installing the drivers and it doesn't seem to have any effect. What do you exactly mean by blacklisting? I've just selected the proprietary nvidia driver from driver manager.

Should I be able to adjust the Powermizer settings instantly after modifying the xorg.conf file with coolbits? Or does the overclocking get enabled only once the system reboots with the modified xorg.conf file?

Ok, I feel kind of noobish to admit this..

Problem behind this was that I connected my display to mobo while I was configuring the rig. I've done this with mining rigs and it has not been a problem so far. When I switched to one of the GPUs, everything started working perfectly.

Normal stuff - set everything to PCI-Express Gen 1 or Gen 2.

Enable 4G performance.

Set 16GB of virtual memory.

Thanks for the post.

is this still the proper way to do it or is there a new way?  Would like to get setup in linux with my rigs.

Also, can you make oc settings for each card individually or is it a global setting?  A few of my rigs have cards with mixed freqs.  had to just buy what I could, because of the video card drought.  Can you set power limit with this too?

Thanks for the post.

is this still the proper way to do it or is there a new way?  Would like to get setup in linux with my rigs.

Also, can you make oc settings for each card individually or is it a global setting?  A few of my rigs have cards with mixed freqs.  had to just buy what I could, because of the video card drought.  Can you set power limit with this too?

You can set up individual overclocking and fan profiles per card via a .sh file for each card loaded up when you log into OS via startup program.
