MSI GTX 670 PE locked at 1019 MHZ?

So I recently OC'd my 670 core clock to 1230 mhz using msi afterburner and when I play games such as ArmA 2 my my core clock wont go past 1019 mhz? I tried tweaking the voltage settings and other stuff in afterburner but it still wont go above 1019... any help would be appreciated, thanks.

  1. Is it only in Arma 2? Some games doesn't support these high clock speeds and therefore your clock speeds will remain lower than expected.

    Could be a driver associated issue, tried reinstalling drivers?

    Tried reinstalling and it didnt work :/
  5. Did you verify if you are using +20% of the power target, I am not sure if Afterburner has it but you can download EVGA Precision X and be sure to set that setting, it will allow the card to use more current when needed (If you rise clock speeds you will)

    Well like I said before, it has only been locked at 1019 recently. When I initially OC'd it with afterburner it was performing fine. But I will try using precision x when I get home from work later. Do you think I should uninstall afterburner before I use precision x or is it to have both at the same time?

    As long as you don't have them running at the same time, it would be no issue. I also like precision X better, as it actually is more stable with higher overclocks, believe it or not, but it actually is.

    You can use both, as they automatically refresh with the actual card settings, what i am not sure is if afterburner has the power target option so try to close it before opening precision x.

    So I installed precision x and set offsets and voltages like I had them in afterburner and for some reason now im stuck at 706 mhz....

  10. Hey I fixed it. It was a driver issue. For some reason when I did the normal reinstall drivers thing it didnt do anything. But when I manually uninstalled them and installed them it fixed it.
