GTS 450 GPU throttling?

I have my GTS 450 OC at 930/2270 from 783/1804. Why am I getting GPU throttling? It happens occasionally and I my fps goes down to 5 - 10 in any game I try.

  1. does the same thing also happen when the card running at its default speed?
  2. No. I've only started getting the problem recently after I OC it a week ago.
  3. then try lowering your OC for a bit.
