use the 460 for F@H. Problem solved.

nVidia's drivers do have problems clocking down. The OP does have a very big bottleneck, but nVidia's drivers also have clocking issues for some people, and that's not only on Windows XP either (I'm on Windows 7).
Thank you, finally someone posts something relevant.

More great news (*sarcasm*). Turns out I have to run and FINISH KMARK every time to force 3D clocks. OpenGL games don't seem to have this problem, I can run at 140FPS+ and there's no downclocking whatsoever, probably why Furmark forces them to 3D settings. It's just DirectX games it seems. FFS.

Where? OP please post before and after performance when forcing full clock speed.

If he can show that he gains substantial benefit from forcing clock speed (regardless of the CPU bottleneck) then we can conclude that there is indeed a driver issue and we can finally close this case.

so, i think, the ~25pages of madness is actually cause by your original thread title if it less rude, this could have been solved at page 1

Will do as soon as I force this thing to 3D clocks again, got plenty of screenshots of stuttering already when it was clocking down.

XP *is* supported. The card works on XP, there are XP drivers, etc.

But not every single function is supported ... DX10 and DX11, which I'm sure you knew ... and apparently the ability to override the cards BUILT-IN power management functions. That doesn't mean that nVidia has lied.

These built-in power management functions work perfectly on my cards (both in se7en and in XP), I've never had to force 'full-power' mode. Yes, they occasionally downclock to low-power 3d when the GPU load is very light, but it causes no issues.

Ergo, nVidia I'm quite sure assumes that having the ability to override built-in power management via the drivers is not critical to making the card work properly, therefore they say that XP is supported on these cards.

So Ams ... I haven't read through this whole thread, but tell me ... are all the problems solved now that the card is forced up to full clocks? Was that indeed 'the problem'? Or is it more properly described as a 'symptom', as I was suggesting to you last week when we debated this whole topic endlessly

This thread is full of fail.

Get rid of XP and use the best OS M$ has ever released, Windows 7.

Don't c why NVIDIA should focus on xp at all. After all even Microsoft stopped supporting it this year . Hell battlefield 3 isn't even gona support it
