Overclock your EVGA PC graphics card via smartphone

Normally, if you want to overclock your PC's graphics card, you have to do it directly on the PC. But wouldn't it be cool to be able to adjust your graphics card setting remotely, in real time, without even having to exit an application such as a game? Yes, it would be very cool indeed.

Thankfully, EVGA has something that's right up your alley if you desired something like this feature. It launched its EVGA Precision X app for Android-based devices this week. The free app can be downloaded from the Google Play service. Basically, it turns your Android smartphone into a kind of remote control for your graphics card.

The app requires that your PC has a Bluetooth connection. If your PC rig has that kind of setup, the Precision X app can be used to adjust all kinds of things on the graphics card such as the fan speed, the GPU and memory clock speed and more. This is done via a set of touch-bassed sliders on the app. You can even store profiles on the app that enable the user to launch any combination of overclocked settings.

The coolest thing about the app is that you can even overclock your graphics card without having to leave your application or PC game. You can adjust the settings on the card in real time via a UI placed on top of the screen via the app.

This doesn't actually work. I've tried and there is support or suggestions made. Aside from not being useful, it's "neato!"

I like being able to see temperatures while in game. It almost makes the phone like an auxiliary display.

Great idea, pretty cool. Glad I picked up a EVGA card.

They are just getting this? My ASUS board has had this for ages...

My Rampage Motherboard does the same thing. They have an iOS app for it. Lets you monitor temperatures, overclock etc. I find it pretty useless to be honest. If I want to overclock I can just do it from my actual PC. This EVGA thing is equally as pointless.

Agreed. I don't find it useful in any real manner either.

Sounds like a silly novelty. I guess it's for people who want external controls who don't want to, or can't install a case controller.

hrm, why bluetooth? Could it not do it over wi-fi instead, PC's are more likely to have wi-fi/ethernet than bluetooth.

But most laptops and mobile devices have bluetooth, oh wait....
