GPU throttling

I have been playing my normal games for a while now (tf2, Batman AC, Arma) and I have a MSI GTX 560 Ti Oc'ed to 980 Core clock and 2200 Memory clock

This just happened recently, but I all of a sudden started lagging in Tf2, to test it I went in MSI Kombustor and saw that it was throttling it down 914 Mhz!

Does anyone know how to fix this?

  1. You'd have to have better cooling somehow. The chip throttles when it's internal temps are going too high.

    Alternatively you can back off on your (aggressive) overclock.

    I put the Core down to 800 and the memory down to 2000 and it's still throttling 734 mhz down
  3. It's getting hotter outside (and inside your room) . Secondly, I wouldnt even consider that throttling being such a minor drop in core speed
  4. IS afterburner showing you GPU temps, are you monitoring CPU temps as well ?? My 1st recommendation, download all new drivers, un-install what ya have and re-load the new stuff...
  5. Or you can just to enable the graphics overdrive option in Catalyst control center. It will automatically adjust to the clocks that MSI has made for the card and will adjust to lower clocks when not in use. Saves power.

    I have used afterburner, but I just use it to experiment with clocks.
  6. I really doubt CCC is gonna work with homeboyz Geforce card!!!! duh ??
  7. ;P That is correct good catch. Anyways, I would suggest not using afterburner and see how if it fares.
