I lost frames after a certain point? (GPU) Tags: Graphics Cards GPUs Power Supplies Bottleneck Overclocking Last response: October 26, 2011 9:57 PM in Overclocking Share ninjaguerra October 26, 2011 8:13:14 PM I'm running an intel i3 2100, with a gtx 560ti and a 430w power supply. Is it possible that i could be bottlenecking? I'm going to redo my Overclock on my GPU but i was wondering why i lost frames at a certain point? I read that it could mean the OC is unstable, and other things i read suggested that i could be bottlenecking. Any advice?

Get the answer ninjaguerra October 26, 2011 9:19:51 PM right now i have the core at 1010mhz, voltage at 1.1, and memory at 2400mhz and its running good, seeing a nice 4-5 frame increase and a 60 degree temp average at 80% fan speed (set to auto) But last night when i pushed to to 1020 i lost about 5 frames =O Im guessing i should stick to 1010 for the core clock? zakattak80 October 26, 2011 9:43:39 PM hmm give a more complete spec list, one thing to note is the 560 ti recommends a 500 watt psu so some of it could be your psu but you don't exactly have a high end cpu ninjaguerra October 26, 2011 9:57:13 PM ASRock H61M-VS Motherboard i3 2100 processor gtx 560ti gpu 430W Corsair PSU (forgot its name) 4 Gigs DDR3 Memory 500 GB 7200 RPM HDD Can't find your answer ?
