4870 GPU clock fluctuates after Overclock Tags: Overclocking GPUs Last response: February 21, 2009 2:33 AM in Overclocking Share shogo_tnt February 21, 2009 12:16:17 AM Before overclock, GPU core clock was 500 MHz idle and 750 MHz load. After my overclock, it keeps flipping back and forth between idle and load while idling on desktop according to GPU-Z. PCI-Express Frequency set to 100 Mhz Q9550 overclocked to 3400 MHz. Is this a problem with my 4870? Is there a some setting I need to change in BIOS? Thanks!

It works fine if I play a game but I'm concerned that it's not good for the card when doing nothing on the desktop. It changes between from Idle 1 sec to Load 1 sec and repeats.

When I minimize or close EasyTune6, it goes back to normal 500 MHz on idle on desktop. Thanks. Can't find your answer ? Ask !
