GPU throttles when OC'd
Jan 1, 2013, 11:20 AM
so i got my new sapphire 7950 OC and i overclocked it with amd overdrive and msi afterburner to 1150 mhz.
I set the memory clock to 1575 and core voltage to 1.25 as said in the tutorial.
Now i launch bf3 and play while gpu-z is running. After inspection i see that the gpu clock jumps from 800 to 1150 all the time as in spikes.
Whats the problem ?
