Updated (7/4/2010)

After several months of searching in Asus websites (best word to describe them is Chaos), I found the following information for my card:

A.    Information.

The name is EN8800GT/G/HTDP/512M/A (The model with the Glaciator Fansink).

The official URL is: http://www.asus.com/products.aspx?l1=2&l2=6&l3=442&l4=0&model=1918&modelmenu=1,

And the card is the second one in the picture which is at the end of the page.

The card is supposed to have the most advanced fan made by Asus (The Glaciator Fansink). You can read details here:

http://event.asus.com/vga/2008/glaciator/index.htm.

Despite that, you will face two surprises.

i.      It has a special internal thermal sensor. nVidia monitor or Rivatuner cannot detect the graphics card temperature from this internal sensor. Only ASUS SmartDoc can read sensor data and show the temperature of this VGA card.

ii.     Neither will it function with SmartFan capability, nor will the fan status be detectable under SmartDoc utility or any other utility.

You can read all the details for the card in the official latest FAQ.

Go there and read the topics:

Unable to monitor VGA card temperature with software,

And:

SmartFan control function.

http://support.asus.com/faq/faq.aspx?model=EN8800GT/G/HTDP/512M/A&SLanguage=en-us

Jumper Settings Information.

There are two jumper connectors on the board named J9 and J10.

·         The J9 (Near the Buzzer) is used to control the buzzer. When a jumper is placed to sort these two pins the buzzer is going to be muted. There would be no warning sound when there is not enough power supply to the card.

·         The J10 connector is for S/PDIF connection. Consult your motherboard manual for instructions on how to make the connection.

The triangle to both jumper sets means the positive pin (The Red cable should be usually connected to that).

 

 

B.    The latest drivers and utilities (For all EN8800).

You can download the latest versions from these links, according to your OS:

 

ASUS VGA card display Driver: v: 191.07 (2K/XP, Vista, Win7) (29/10/2009)

Latest nVidia Driver: v: 197.13 (2K/XP, Vista, Win7) (25/3/2010)

http://www.nvidia.com/Download/index.aspx?lang=en-us

 

C.    Updating the Drivers-Utilities (For all EN8800).

Please follow the instructions with the exact order I describe!!

1)     Uninstall SmartDoctor and reboot.

2)     Uninstall Gamer OSD and reboot.

3)     Uninstall all utilities you have that control VGA (rivatune nVidia utilities etc.)

4)     Uninstall nVidia driver and reboot. After reboot press cancel in all pop-up windows that are trying to install a new driver.

5)     Go to Start-run-(in XP) or Start-Accessories-run (in Vista or Win7) and type: msconfig, then go to services tab click “Hide all Microsoft services” in the bottom and then click “Disable all”, then go to Startup tab and click “Disable all”. Then press OK and reboot.

6)     After rebooting check if your Antivirus Program and your Firewall program is disabled after that procedure. If not, disable them manually until you have finished with the installations.

7)     (All that procedure will help you to get rid of the error can't find EIO.dll which prevents SmartDoctor from loading. Follow step 6 only if you have that problem).After reboot It's time to create a restore point!

Then go again to Start-run-(in XP) or Start-Accessories-run (in Vista or Win7) and type: regedit. That will open the Registry editor.

Click computer in the left pane. Then click Edit and then Find… in the Find what: type Smart Doctor select Keys Values Data and leave Match whole string only unchecked. Then click Find Next. And delete all entries, you will find.(That means go to the left pane, right click the entry and select delete. The entry is always the one before the last shown in the left pane Check carefully what you are deleting!! Never delete an entry which is not referring to SmartDoctor directly!). After each delete go to Edit-Find Next or press F3 until you clean the whole registry from references of SmartDoc. After that close Registry editor and reboot.

8)     After reboot install first the Asus VGA driver and reboot again.

9)     Then install GamerOSD and reboot again.

10)  Now install SmartDoc and reboot again.

11)  Now install the latest nVidia Driver if the version number is higher than the Asus one, (do not uninstall anything!!! Just the program to update the installed Asus driver). Reboot again.

12)  Finally go again to Start-run-(in XP) or Start-Accessories-run (in Vista or Win7) and type: msconfig. Go to General tab and click “Normal startup” and then “Apply”. Then reboot to apply changes. Don’t forget to re enable your Antivirus and Firewall if you have disabled them manually.

13)  After that,

a.    If you ever want to re-update Asus SmartDoc, always first uninstall it. Then reboot and then install it again with the new version. Never try to update it!! Without uninstall.

b.    If you want to update GamerOSD first uninstall SmartDoc and reboot. Then uninstall GamerOSD and reboot. Then reinstall GamerOSD first and reboot and finally reinstall SmartDoc again.  Never try to update them! Without uninstall.

c.     If you want to update to the latest nVidia driver do the following. Go to Start-run-(in XP) or Start-Accessories-run (in Vista) and type: msconfig, then go to services tab click “Hide all Microsoft services” in the bottom and then click “Disable all”, then go to Startup tab and click “Disable all”. Then press OK and reboot, After reboot don't uninstall anything. Just upgrade the new nVidia drivers over the previous version Asus or nVidia. Finally go again to Start-run-(in XP) or Start-Accessories-run (in Vista) and type: msconfig. Go to General tab and click “Normal startup” and then “Apply”. Then reboot to apply changes.

 

D.     Tuning the Utilities.

To have the best results with EN8800GT/G/HTDP/512M/A (The model with the Glaciator Fansink) you can try that:

After complete installation with the method I have described go to SmartDoc and try the following.

i.      Settings tab: Check:  Enable overheat protection, Minimize SmartDoctor after running 3D games, Minimize SmartDoctor at next reboot. Then click Apply.

ii.     Monitor tab: Click GPU and press Default. Then adjust the temp to 850 and click Apply.

iii.    Fun Control tab: press Default. Then click Apply.

iv.    HyperDrive tab: Click Enable HyperDrive and choose 3D game mode. Then click Apply.

After that I never had overheating problems and I never had any problem with any Game!

Please write back if that worked for you!

 

PS. If you want to use Asus Splendid you can go to Display settings and choose Advanced Settings. Then Choose the ASUS tab and after the ASUS Splendid tab. There you can click Enable ASUS Splendid, and experiment with the Settings to your taste.

In the new version of Asus drivers’ v: 190.45 or later and Gamer OSD .09xx or later you can also just right click the desktop and choose Asus Splendid.

Yes Asus drivers have specific drivers which are installed the first time and make the other utilities to detect the card and all the sensors. If you don't install them they won't work. After that the latests nVidia drivers update only the parts that are related to the nVidia chip and you will have the latest available with all utilities functioning correctly.

I will download them, but at this moment  its not possible to download the files from the download site if i click on global or china noting happens.

After installing the Asus driver there is no need for installing the Nvidia driver because they are the same version 175.19 am i correct?.

Asus is saying that we 1st have to install smartdoctor then Asus driver then gamerOSD.

If your VGA card supports Smart Doctor, after the installation of Smart Doctor (Don''''t forget to install VGA driver and ASUS GamerOSD), you will have both 3 features.

A different order then u have lol.
