EVGA PrecisionX Update

We understand that there is a lot of confusion and misinformation in the internet community about Guru3D’s article titled “Did EVGA just Steal the Rivatuner RTSS design concept into PrecisionX 15 ?”. We would like to clarify the following:

1. Precision’s original main GUI concept was designed and provided to the community by EVGA in 2008.
2. The RivaTuner control panel and backend code in prior versions of Precision were developed and is owned by the RivaTuner developer. EVGA does not own the source code for any RivaTuner code. EVGA paid for the development and distribution rights per the contract.
3. The new EVGA PrecisionX 15 was coded from scratch by EVGA without copying any of the RivaTuner code.
4. Both RivaTuner and EVGA PrecisionX 15 make use of the NVIDIA NVAPI to communicate with NVIDIA graphics cards and drivers, which is owned and provided by NVIDIA.

Some people mentioned that the file structure in EVGA PrecisionX 15 is similar to the previous version of Precision. During development, we referenced the USF skin format (which has been published by RivaTuner developer at Guru3D forums in 2009 to allow the community to create their own skins). The above mentioned feature would make it simple to allow users to recompile any previous skins to work with the new version of PrecisionX 15. However, we do understand the confusion caused by trying to maintain this feature and we will change it in the next release.

Next, it was also mentioned that the code contains text references (not code) to the word “RivaTuner” and the word “RTTSH.dll”, a RivaTuner file. This actually came from the user interface localization / help (wording). During the original Precision development, EVGA worked with several outside firms to help translate user interface help files into various languages, unfortunately this is a misprint in the translation files and will be fixed. Again, no RivaTuner code was ever used in EVGA PrecisionX 15. We apologize to the RivaTuner developer for this error.

Originally our goal was to add more features such as 64bit OSD, Steam, updated voltage controls, and more to a new version without changing the Precision user’s experience that they were already familiar with. Unfortunately, the “similarities” between the two programs have led people to believe that EVGA might have copied the code and design from RivaTuner, which is not the case. Given the circumstances, in order to remove any questions and to further differentiate it visually from the previous versions of EVGA Precision, EVGA has decided to listen to the community and suspend the downloading of EVGA PrecisionX 15 temporarily while these updates are being implemented.

Please remember, Precision was and is built for the community and without the community EVGA Precision and many other overclocking utilities would not be where they are today. It is EVGA’s commitment to continue investing in the development of PrecisionX by adding the features the community asks for while providing it free of charge!

Thank You,

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.

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!

I've always used Precision. But having this in Steam is not a good idea in my opinion.

#1 reason: You can not close Steam down unless you close Precision first.

This should be run outside of Steam. Unless you are looking for bragging right achievments I guess....

EVGA Precision is a good piece of software, I just can't agree with it being run through Steam. So I give this version, the middle finger.

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!!!

- 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!!!

+ 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!)

I recommend PrecisionX, alongside HWMonitor basic 32-bit edition (available on, 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 and they will 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 3.2GHz) 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.

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.

Definitely a downgrade from version 4.2.1 with many problems coming with the update, including:

Having to close the software before being able to close Steam
Having the app constantly show as your status while it's running in the background
Broken feature implementation (OSD, etc)

Achievement hunters may also be putting their system at risk by attempting dangerous procedures to complete them

I reverted back to 4.2.1 almost immediately.

My OC experience isn't huge, but it's well versed enough with better benchmarking tools. EVGA PrecisionX 15 isn't bad, it sports a number of features that you'd only find individually in several less user-friendly ones. That said, it's monitoring appears to be vague and some slightly off. It also crashed my screen out upon adjusting the voltage settings - not 100% as to why but it's an issue I’ve not encounter with other OC software.

If you've got a machine to beat up, go for it. If you respect your hardware enough to want to ensure its longevity, don't use this tool. The achievements aren't worth your hardware - but they are worth the e-peen gain and our amusement.

WOW, I just got done reading the posts on the community forum and it is very disturbing. If you don't know what this program is or how to use it properly, do not, I repeat DO NOT play with this. Bad idea to put this on steam for some 10 year old to blow up their parents computer, lol. Don't get me wrong, I love the software but it has no place on here.


Reach 2000MHz or higher GPU clock <<<<<Oh Lord!

Comes with a mysterious other piece of software called "PrecisionX Server". I can't find any information about what information this thing collects, where it's sending it, or what function it serves with regards to the root program.

When you click on the server, a mysterious pop-up window arrives with no information -- just a set of "OK" and "Cancel" buttons.

I would never recommend ANY software for your system that wasn't fully explained.
