Is this a problem? - GTX 660 Higher clock than Factory when gaming
Mar 14, 2014, 8:13 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.

Yeah thats fine, thats just GPU boost doing its job. It will boost up the speed when its not limited by temperatures or power target.

But I thought the boost was from 1033 to 1098
