First time I used 'nvflash --straps' I just changed my (or mask 0) value. So only one hex value was updated!

After that I played Crysis. Crysis crashed at startup

2nd time I reused the command 'nvflash --straps' setting (or mask 1) value to its new value.  It fixed the problem for Crysis

I should be able to do a few tests for Linux when I am back to home.

In that case:

1) What modification had you already applied when Crysis crashed at
2) What further modification was required to fix the problem?

Aha! Now I understand! So either the fan control in Linux is broken
or the Windows driver does some temperature management throttling
that the Linux driver doesn't. Have you tried manually setting
the fan speed to maximum? I could have sworn there were Linux
utilities for this ages ago, but I haven't really kept up with
things because I haven't looked into it recently.

What temperature were you hitting on the GPU? IIRC Nvidia GPUs
are rated to 95C, and only throttle after that (or at least that
was the case back when I was running number-crunching on multiple
9800GX2 cards.
