Solved Is this a problem? - GTX 660 Higher clock than Factory when gaming Tags: Gtx Gaming Graphics Last response: March 14, 2014 9:33 AM in Graphics & Displays Share William2014 March 14, 2014 8:13:04 AM Hey guys I have a GTX 660 Gigabyte Edition. I'm trying to find a solution to why my new PC keeps freezing whenever I use the Internet, have multiple applications opened, or gaming. Normally my GPU's is @ 300-400 when just browsing the Internet and not gaming. But when I open a game like Rust, the clock speed goes up to 1167. Is this normal? On the Box it says it s 1033mhz - 1098. If it's not suppose to do that(go over the factory said 1098), how do I fix it? I have not messed with any GPU settings or over clocked anything.

It will boost up the speed when its not limited by temperatures or power target.
