GTX560 - always in 3D mode (desktop idle - non-stop 850MHz gpu!) Tags: Graphics Cards Asus GPUs Desktops Graphics Last response: August 6, 2012 9:46 AM in Graphics & Displays Share kr1z July 26, 2012 12:49:09 AM Hi, I have a weird - in my opinion - problem with my GPU - Asus GTX560 DirectCUII (deafult clocks 850/1050), I checked in gpu-z gpu/mem load at desktop - 0%, screens: http://gpuz.techpowerup.com/12/07/25/5y8.png http://gpuz.techpowerup.com/12/07/25/cpf.png and this is annoying, I mean- in desktop my GPU gets too much C* - 51, it's too much, but this isn't only thing- second is ofc high power consumption. What can I do? (btw. Asus help center sucks..)

The problem is the web browser and flash. The only way I can get lower clocks is to not have firefox open. Windows updates have caused some problems so I turned them off as they caused fraps to not work grr. Can't find your answer ? Ask ! Get the answer cbrunnem a b U Graphics card July 26, 2012 1:10:56 AM its the almighty Nvidia drivers. i dont see any problems though kr1z July 26, 2012 8:14:14 AM I have Chrome, anyway - with any application turn on/off (except system- explorer etc.) gpu's still in 3D, 0%load and still 3D.. nforce4max a c 173 U Graphics card July 26, 2012 2:44:23 PM There is still something putting a load on the card that isn't windows. Check what is still active when you are not on the web with task manager and look for anything adobe. kr1z July 26, 2012 5:29:31 PM I closed all processes - and use force'2D' by Asus Tweak, and guess what - voltage is ok, but clock's - just WTF nVidia?! I don't get it.. http://www.abload.de/img/zzzzssd0syrc.jpg *sorry, I'm from PL so text is in my language. nforce4max a c 173 U Graphics card July 26, 2012 6:23:00 PM I guess that you might have to wait like the rest of us for a decent fix. This is why I always lag behind when it comes to driver updates. kr1z July 27, 2012 8:45:55 AM @somethingnew When I switch pciex slot from blue x16 to black x8 - gpu starts working normally - with lower voltage and clocks, again - wtf? I have no idea what can I do. kr1z July 30, 2012 8:58:06 PM Something rly weird, please answer me: I put into my pc GF GT210 (ddr2, palit I guess- red, nvm), and guess what - this card in same slot where was GTX560 is ok - power consumption is ok, temperature is ok - should I send back GTX to shop? kr1z August 6, 2012 9:46:18 AM SOLVED SOLVED FINALLY SOLVED THANKS GOD!!!
