I am having trouble overclocking my card. I have the EVGA 580 SC @ 797 core clock and 1594 shader with 1.088v. I have used MSI afterburner and Nvidia inspector to overclock this card but I see no increase in fps in ANY game. I have clocked it to 1800mhz with 1.125v with absolutely zero increase in fps in skyrim (which is currently at avg of 70 with dips in 30's) . Its as if its locked. However when I do push the shader clock to 1900mhz I get a driver crash.

Whats going on, did I damage my card?

CPU: i5 2500k @ 4.8
PSU: Raidmax 850W 80 Plus Gold
RAM: 8GB Kingston Hyper X
Motherbard: Asrock Extreme 4 Gen3

1360x768. I am using an HDTV not a monitor. I have tried other 1080p HDTV's at 1900x1080 but the fps has either remained the same or has dropped in games like Just cause 2, Saints Row The Third, Arkham City

Vsync on ? It caps the fps.

Note that in Skyrim a form of Vertical Synchronization (VSync) is enabled by default, and cannot be disabled using the in-game settings. This means your framerate will be capped to your refresh rate (typically 60 FPS), and you may also experience mouse lag. Several alternatives for dealing with this form of VSync are covered in the Advanced Tweaking section of the guide.

VSync is off in both the ini and forced off on Nvidia control panel. Where is the 3rd post?
