2. When I run Fluid Mark 1.2 the app starts and everything seems to be working but suddenly the particles in the floor flash and disappear and the benchmark keeps running,( Please tell me if this is normal?)
Why Fluid Mark Doesn't Work? Why the clocks of my card are running as if I have Dual monitor Setup?
1. This is auto-overclocking + auto-downclocking mechanisms enabled in the bios of your GPU i suppose. It should go up when you launch any PhysX app, and go down when you close it. Not sure if it works fine for you, but for me (9800GT Eco from Zotac) it worked well when i tested it on older drivers (196-197 series). If you mean that clocks went up permanently for you, perhaps it has something to do with its bios. This may be unfixable without using 3rd party apps in OS runtime...
2. In FluidMark 1.2 you should set 3 emitters and 60000 particles (default settings). It goes crazy with more particles in GPU mode, you can find more info about this here: http://www.geeks3d.com/20100524/phys...you-must-know/
Or just do a full 60 seconds run in FluidMark 1.1...

I just installed 257 after uninstalling my old Nvidia drivers and PhysX, but I can't get PhysX to work. It doesn't show up in the control panel.
And it won't show up there. It's already enabled, you just have to set up a fake display, and (maybe) extend it.
