Not sure if cool-bits=31 still works for overclocking on nvidia-387 drivers?

Thanks very much for this guide! It's been helpful for me.

I also needed
Code: Select all
sudo apt-get install software-properties-common python-software-properties

to get the apt-add-repository command. For some reason those two packages weren't already installed on my system.
