    I have a Gigabyte GTX460 1GB and i currently have it overclocked to 850/1700/2000 and yesterday i decided to let GPU-Z log the sensors for me and after playing starcraft 2 for awhile i checked the logs and it says that my GPU downclocked to stock settings.

    Is this normal ? is GPU-Z messed up? any help would be appreciated.

    Using V0.4.4 of GPU-Z? The 460 is a bit new and GPU-Z might still need some work for the 460. It is NOT normal to have your OC backed off to defaults. What did you use to OC the 460?

    gpuz doesnt change your clocks, try without gpuz running and check if the clocks change

    im sorry, i didnt make myself clear, i didnt mean to say that GPU-Z is changing my clocks, what i am trying to say is that based on the sensor log from GPU-Z it shows my card downclocking back to defaults. I dont know if thats a error on the gpu-z sensor log, or something else, but when i checked the clocks they were at 850/1700/2000 based on gpu-z and msi afterburner.

    i have the log here if you need it "W1zzard"

    maybe your card overheated? then the driver reduces the clocks

    it shows a maximum of 58C while playing starcraft 2, and fan was set to jump from 40% to 50% once it reaches above 50C

    i dont think its overheating.

    IMHO, its a GPU-Z issue ... Its been awhile, but I believe Afterburner has a log capability; if so, compare it against GPU-Z's. Or compare it against the log in HWMonitor, some other logging app.

    I have been having a lot of "weird" issues with my galaxy 460 gc. This is one that I have seen as well, doesn't matter if I use afterburner, gpu-z or xtreme hd to monitor. Almost seems like a driver issue (this combined with my other problems).

    Read this thread, Click on the link for DCP Latency and see if you are seeing lag spikes at 2D while watching a video, listening to music or just opening CPUz or GPUz.

    According to DPC latency checker:

    Absolute maximum: 134

    while watching a movie, listening to music and opening programs like gpu-z.

    while you were playing SC2, did your display go dark and return to normal for a while?

    I'm asking this because I experienced the same issue. When Afterburner and GPUz were still showing my card's overclocked speed I knew it was not true because after a while my gtx460 has reverted to default speed while I was playing.

    that's when the card hangs/crashes and the driver restarts the graphics card which causes it to lose all overclock of course

    Or in other words, your overclock isn't stable.
