Set coolbits value on Fedora Linux

You sometimes need to set the coolbits value to overclock your GPU on Linux

You’ll need to install nvidia-xconfig

sudo dnf install nvidia-xconfig

Then you can set the cool bits value with the following command. Change 24 to the appropriate cool bits value. Refer to the link below.

sudo nvidia-xconfig --cool-bits=28

It’ll create a new xorg config file. Reboot to take advantage of cool bits being enabled.
