    GTX 970 2D clock issues.

    The game in question causing the issue for me was "Path of exile" Whenever i ran the game full screen every once in a while when i tabbed out id drop clocks to 2d clocks (regardless if any overlays like afterburner were running or not) and only a restart would fix it. My fix for it was to run...

    Need help to determine my GPU/System problem?

    Run afterburner or GPUZ and monitor your clock/memory speeds. When you notice slowdowns check what clockspeed your gpu is running at. This happened to me on my 970 where gpu would clock down to 2d application clocks and get stuck there and wont revert till i rebooted. Set your games/gpu power...

    A build for a friend.

    Monitor. kb/m. HDD. He has a copy of Windows 7. He plays mainly path of exile but his current pc is terrible and can barely run it. He wants to be able to play some newer games hence wanting to build a pc since his current one just flat out wont play them. (some old prebuilt)

    GTX 970 2D clock issues.

    Turned off all overlays. Had gpuz running in background so i could check clocks after i was done. For the most part it was fine but when i went to minimise game to check something on the web the clocks dropped again and got stuck. Since this has happened ive tried forcing it to see if a...

    GTX 970 2D clock issues.

    I was running afterburner and the normal steam overlay in games. Other than these, no. For a while i was running nvidia shadowplay which i thought may have caused the issue but after disabling it i still had the same problems. Also after having dropped to 344.16 which was the most updated on...

    GTX 970 2D clock issues.

    Okay ... so apparently the issue isn't fully solved. After about 2 and a half hours of no problems the graphics card randomly down clocked again and got stuck. I really have no clue what could be causing this. Should i try an older driver ?

    GTX 970 2D clock issues.

    Changed power management to High performance (which turned link speed management off) as well as set global power settings in nvidia control panel to max performance. This worked but kept my GPU pinned at max clocks even at desktop. Changed the global power option to adaptive and kept games...

    GTX 970 2D clock issues.

    So i got a MSI gaming 4G GTX 970 yesterday and for a while everything was fine. Then i started noticing that in between opening different games the card would no longer run at full speed and instead be running at some kind of 2D desktop clock(540/3005) and sometimes even lower at (405/810)...

    What's your monthly Internet Data Usage?

    My ISP doesn't keep records of previous months for whatever reason. Only the active month. I have no usage cap. But when I checked at the end of July, I had about 400GB downloaded. Cant remember how much was uploaded.

    Intel Haswell Overclocking Clubhouse.

    When i went to OC, i did not touch any of those settings, so shouldn't they be on by default ? Literally, all i did to achieve this OC, is set cores to sync across all cores at a 45 multiplier, and change voltage from adaptive to 1.24. All other settings remain stock/default. My cpu can still...

    Intel Haswell Overclocking Clubhouse.

    Ok, so after a 24 hour test, my 4670k is stable at 4.5 ghz at 1.24v. Now that's using fixed volts, i want to ask is there a way to run the cpu so that its not fixed at 1.24 and can drop alongside clocks when im idling or the pc is asleep ? If so can someone give me some info/instructions on...

    Intel Haswell Overclocking Clubhouse.

    Ah I see. Also I have a 4670k not a 4770k. Which may explain the ring bus speed.

    Intel Haswell Overclocking Clubhouse.

    So while stress testing my OC (4.5ghz at 1.23v) both intel xtreme utility and AIDA 64 (im only keeping this open for monitoring) reprot that my clocks dropped however AIDA indicates no thermal throttling at all. Intel xtreme utility shows in the last hour it dropped ever so slightly from 4.5ghz...

    Intel Haswell Overclocking Clubhouse.

    Hi guys, I've had a 4670k since launch but never had the cooling to overclock, that is until yesterday. So I've started tinkering about and so far I've got to 4.5ghz at 1.25v (Passed a 12 hour run of intel extreme utility, max temp is 68 Degrees) This is actually my first experience...
