Hello,i have a notebook ,with a Geforce GT 325m and i'm overclocking it a little.The thing is ,i've been playing nicely the last week.but for last couple days something odd is happening.I overclock the gpu,and i play for 10 m tops,and it just stops overclocking in the middle of the game for no reason whatsoever.It drops some fps,and I can see the diference ingame.i don't think it's a temperature issue,because it never goes over 68 degrees celcius and I have a very good notebook cooler.I use EVGA Precison for overclocking.i've already done this on my desktop (overclock) and in another notebook :p  .it's the first time i've had this issue.it just stopped ,turning back to default.Any help would be wonderful :D

Have the last couple of days been warmer and/or more humid? A difference of only a couple of degrees could mean auto-throttling versus normal operation.

I think you are running into thermal problems.

Try to find a GPU temperature monitoring program that has a logging function. After the system resets itself, check it a see if you are having thermal problems.

It's not a temperature issue ,since it happens when I play EVERY GAME.happens when i play Crysis 2 ,starcraft 2 ,even age of empires 2 counter strike 1.6 .I did this to test the temperature,and it had 45 degrees on the last two. however ,everything returns to default ! anymore ideias?Thanks anyway !
