Yep the NV CTRL Panel still looks like its based on 16bit colors and I feel it needs a face lift. As for functionality, It works fine for me.
As someone previously stated Nvidia inspector adds manual fan control and overclocking to the NV Ctrl panel....I think
I know i can overclock and all that jazz in NV cpl. but i prefer Afterburner Since i use a aggressive fan profile that ramps my fans up quickly up to 100% at 55 degrees since i game with headphones. The only time they Get near 50c is gaming or using cuda in dvd fab or some other general purpose GPU use over 50%. A 35+ GB bluray stream wont make them get near 50c so when I am watching blurays my system is silent.
I have 4 120mm cougars vortex fans in my Coolermaster HAF922 , 2 in the side panel blowing directly on both video cards and motherboard VRMs/ Socket area, 2 on my 120mm water radiator. Then in the top and front i have the stock 200mm 900 rpm fans that came with the case that are silent. All hooked to my fan controller so i can let them run at 40% speed unless I am gaming or Video converting ETC. They could blast away at 100% and still be silent but I feel since i run it 24/7 it will help save the fan bearings. Ops I forgot i have a 120mm Enermax magma in the bottom of the case in front of the PSU as another intake. I love the vortex and magma fans. Vortex fans seem to be built better and have a absurd 300,000hr lifespan, but the enermax magma works just as well and silent along with pretty much the same CFMs but I had one die on me "making noise"
So i have plenty of airflow:)
