Noobs and those who are noobs but refuse to admit it. Please, Please, PLEASE, DO NOT try to "earn" all the achievments associated with this program at the cost of your GPU. Your parents will be displeased, as will you when you realize what you've done.

Use the non-steam version, there are only negatives to using it through steam.

Of course the software itself is recommendable but the lesson I take from this is: Don't ever get software like this on Steam, especially if it's free anyways. By "software like this" I mean programs that are supposed to be constantly running in the background. The problem is, as long as PrecisionX (launched by Steam) is running, you can't close Steam and your Status will be "playing EVGA PrecisionX" which of course makes zero sense to have this displayed to your friends all the time.

I have to admit I did play around with the settings in order to find out how many of the achievements I could get. But in all seriousness I would have no reason to complain right now had I bricked my graphics card in the process.

So stay safe and install this software the regular way from the Internet.

I'm primarily writting to clarify for others.

First off, this is a GPU overclocking software. It is not a game, and shouldn't be treated as such. I've already read reports of users ruining their graphics cards due to chasing achievements associated with this software (a rather silly feature).

Second, many reviews are stating that a con of this particular steam version is that it requires steam to be running simultaneosly with the software. This isn't worded clearly though. Here is a direct quote from the EVGA website, from their FAQ regarding this software:

"Q. Does EVGA Precision X need to be running in the background to set clockspeeds and settings?
A. No, EVGA Precision does not need to be running, just make sure to select the Apply button before exiting."

So, while it's true that steam needs to be running simultaneously in order for the actual software to be running, neither have to be running in order for any changes/tweaks you've made to be in effect.

Overall I don't recommend this product on steam, because it's not user-friendly enough for the people using steam. The achievements should be removed, and the FAQ should be posted in the steam description.

This is an excellent piece of tweaking and overclocking software. Runs without Steam, if needed. But dear God, please leave out the achievement earning, it's quite unnecessary.

The last version had so many issues. But this version is very good .Very!! if you dont know what you are doing do NOT use this. You will break your PC. thats becuase it does what it says it will do it goes beyond what is safe . Only for experts that have done it for years. I recommend this to the very few that except the price. Now that I take no blame for this tool . I can say this one rocks its the masterblaster. The end all be all. Take off the side panels point all the fans you got and heat that up.

CONS:
- EVGA Precision is totally unnecessary software on Steam. Why? Only reason I can think of is cheap attempt of increasing EVGA's brand awareness.
- This Steam version ruins the functionality of the software (it has to be run and closed along with Steam.)
- Lack of warning and information about overclocking on Steam page. And due to easy accessibility of the software being on Steam, kids and people who are not experienced with computers can damage their hardwares (this software was only downloadable from their website and required account login. but now everyone here on Steam can download without any knowledge of overclocking video cards and ramifications of doing so.)
- Achievements (again, this can ruin people who are not experts while going for achievements.)
- Broken achievements (recent updates broke them because some people have the achievements with earlier time stamps. this pisses off achievement hunters like myself.)

PROS:
- Second best overclocking software to MSi Afterburner.

Final Remarks:
I am a fan of EVGA and I have had more than 5 EVGA cards in my life. But their software really looks stupid on Steam. I suggest you download and use non-Steam version of the software. Like I said above, if you have no experience or knowledge of overclocking your PC, educate yourself thoroughly from various websites before attempting.

Great Overclocking tool! I have SLI GTX 780s and this works a charm. Very simple interface and has all necessary tools to acheive solid overclocks. Getting the extras like OSD and custom profile switching is a little bit tricky but something I can easily overlook.
BUT FOR THE LOVE OF GOD... If you dont know what you're doing, research before you even install this neat tool... Too many stupid posts like "Did I break my GPU?"

This software is a god send. When Far Cry 3 and Bioshock Infinite would CTD and I couldn't find a solution anywhere, this tool fixed it for me. Now I know that manufactors dont supply the right settings for all cards, this thing bridges the gap with voltage control, fanc control and more.

A big step back from the previous, non-Steam version. Poorly thought out Steam implementation for those like me who leave Precision running at all times, achievements that will probably lead a less-knowledgeable person to burn out their video card, buggy OSD monitoring (check out Assassin's Creed 1 with it running - transparent walls everywhere), and removed features from previous versions (why can't I monitor via my Logitech LCD anymore?) make this a pass. Find yourself a v4.2.whatever and install that instead.

I got a few Achievements out of it but i'm really scared of destroying my graphics card to mess about with it anymore.
It's FREE so I can imagine alot of kids downloading it and overclock their graphics card, maxing out everything in the belief that it will run the latest Call of Duty or something.
This thing is actually kind of dangerous because it actively encourage you to damage your system by baiting you with Achievements.
But ya know... there is that Call of Duty kid thing I mentioned... so yeah get it! Fry your card!

This is a GPU readout & overclocking tool
(only for NVIDIA graphic cards)
Highly recommended for SLI users - to see if both/three/four GPUs are actually working. BUT only the non-steam version!!!

Cons:
- U have to close Precision to be able to close steam
- GPU Snyc does not work properly (2different GTX460s)
- no max GPU/MEM Clock setting (e.g. 840MHz)
=> it's a GPU/MEM Clock offset, now (e.g. +160MHz)
- worse than predecessor
- ingame OSD doesn't work in some games
- no AMD/Ati support
- OC Beginners don't do achievement hunting!!!

Pros:
+ ingame OSD
+ GPU/Mem clock readouts
(fps, temps, gpu scaling, clocks, fan,...)
+ GPU/Mem overclocking
+ FPS limiter
+ take screenshots (also from desktop)
+ achievements (if U know what you're doing!)

STEAM WON'T SHUTDOWN, IF A STEAM RELATED PROGRAM IS RUNNING! Just stay with PrecisionX 4.2.1...

I recommend PrecisionX, alongside HWMonitor basic 32-bit edition (available on cpuid.com with careful ad navigation), as virtually the only tools I use to dial in games. They are not miracle workers and require a little knowledge to define your own goals, but once you're able, the entire process is simple and scalable to any reasonable hardware profile. I play all PC games at my native 1920x1080 120Hz and hold a locked frame rate to stay competitive/ immersed. What that frame rate is depends on what genre of game and the hardware I can throw at it. Primarily, I play multi-player, first-person-shooters, which rely on the highest framerates you can attain and lock steadily without any interference to reflex and muscle memory. With another type of game, a city builder like SimCity, I don’t mind the fewer frames, still locked mind you, but pouring on the candy a little. Both are set up using the feedback and control of the same two programs.

In the real world we have our investments. Not every computer can run a game at max settings without severely punishing it or some tremendous hits on performance. It’s the wrong way to go about things. PC gaming is the freedom to prioritize when sacrifices must be made. Those sacrifices will, of course, be made as time marches on and your technology's timer ticks away. I can assure you this combination of tools with that little base knowledge will give you a much better experience than the defaults and other arbitrary changes you’ve been accustomed to. Add to that the confidence of keeping heat in check, good health for a 5 year run if your build is on point.

My current computer will reach a cross-road before too long due to the eventual sliding scale started the day I built it in late 2010, but after an upgrade this past July, from an EVGA GTX480 to a used GTX660ti, I’ve gotten a second wind. Anyone who knows me understands my frustrations with performance at the launch of COD Ghosts, but I’ll be damned if that 480 didn’t have me at native res pinned to 50fps. Too much had to be sacrificed reaching that mark and it fell short of a competitive level. Now I’m at a static 91fps with much better filtering, smoothed out a ton to my expectations of performance, and I’ve arrived at the best case scenario for an honest dependable build with the same tools.

I’ve listed my current computer specs below with a link to another system I'd build for myself given the means. Every piece of both those puzzles were carefully thought out and it’s not to say there aren’t other solutions out there… but mine served me well for nearly 4 years and the latter would, in my hands, be the destroyer of worlds. At both ends of the spectrum PrecisionX and HWMonitor would have it under safe logical limits, just on different scales. That’s my definition of powerful tools. Less is more, use your resources wisely.

Newegg Spec Dream Machine. My personal choice as "The destroyer of worlds" :D

CPU - i7 950 1366 socket (CPU up in Asus bios clocked to i7975 3.33GHz) w/ Zalman cnps 9900 Cooler
MOBO - Asus Rampage III Extreme
RAM - Corsair 6x2GB Tri-Channel PC3 12800 1600 Dominator GT RAM (full kit w/ cooler)
GPU - GTX660 Ti 2GB w/ EVGA Precision X 16.0 tuning
HDD - Western Digital Velociraptor 10k RPM 300GB
PSU - Corsair Pro Series AX1200
CASE - Cooler Master HAF X 942 w/ 8x case fans
MONITOR - Acer GD235HZ 120Hz 2ms response 24”
OS - Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit SP1 retail pkg

It's my intension to create a community guide to aid people utilizing this tool in a careful and effective manner under the philosophy of frames over fluff, to a degree, and when it's called for. Until then, here are some screen shots of the game settings I used in Ghosts as a reference, achieving 91 locked and smooth frames. DO NOT BLINDLY MIMIC THESE SETTINGS. They were generated using my hardware and might harm your computer trying to follow suit.
