Haven't tried all functions but it still deserves a 5 star review just because i was looking for something like this for so long. The data is accurate and there is a power management function so that's all i could ever ask

Good overview, but rather useless for 960M, coolbit wont work and the app just doesnt help at all.

Works great for fan control, I can't say about overclocking because I don't overclock. I had to perform two updates to get it to work: using the Driver Manager app (Main Menu > Administration > Driver Manager) I updated my GPU driver to "nvidia-driver-470 Version 470.57.02-0ubuntu0.20.04.1" which was labeled "(recommended)", and I had to run "flatpak update" in a terminal, as suggested by the GWE app. I rebooted after each change. Linux Mint 20.2, Cinnamon 5.0.5, i5-7600 CPU, 16 GB RAM, MSI H270M Mortar Artic motherboard, Nvidia GTX 1060 6GB GPU. Three monitors, two using the motherboard's builtin graphics and a third connected to the GPU. The GWE app says that "Launch on login" is not supported by Flatpak, but the latest comment on the referenced github page for this issue says that they tried it, and it worked, so using Main menu > Preferences > Startup Applications, I clicked on the + button to add the following Custom Command "/usr/bin/flatpak run --branch=stable --arch=x86_64 --command=/app/bin/gwe --file-forwarding com.leinardi.gwe" and I added a 10 second delay so as not to delay boot; you don't need this to start immediately. Then using this app I created my own fan profile to keep my GPU cooler, like in the 40s C for normal use. Before this, my GPU would get up into the 60s C, when not doing anything especially intensive. My profile parameters for (Temperature,Duty) are: (20,20), (36,30), (45,47), (60,78),(68,90),(75,100). I just tried some different settings to get the fan control curve to keep my GPU temp in the 40s for my normal use. I will be using my GPU for some machine learning, and I know I will have to accept higher temps for that, I may take my third monitor off the GPU so it only runs the machine learning stuff and adjust the fan speed profile accordingly. The right panel containing the fan info may not be visible in some cases, it's lower down, just scroll down or widen the window on the right. I'm very happy with this app!

It works nicely with my GTX1660 Super

Works flawlessly with my NVIDIA GTX 970, you just need to set coolbits to enable overclocking. Very nice to be able to change the power target as well :)

Does not run on current hardware. OK if you are running very old legacy hardware.
