Possible for program to auto overclock when I open game.. Auto underclock in Windows?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
As the title says. I've been reading and screwin around with RivaTuner, but I havent found a way exactly. Is there a way when I open a game my overclock will turn on, and I can keep it underclocked in Windows without manual adjustments every time? Thanks

In the Nvidia control panel you should see Power management mode. When it's set to adaptive, it should behave like the above screenshot that was posted.

I'm not sure what series of card this power saving mode was featured though.

I don't remember having the functions back in the day until I recently came back to Nvidia.

You can do this under Afterburner (which is based off Rivatuner therefore probably possible under that too) to enable 3D and 2D profiles for different overclocks/underclocks.

well if your only using 1 monitor your wasting your time trying to underclock as the card will clock down to something like 50mhz core, 200 mem and 100 shader when at the windows desktop.

just set an overclock in afterburner and it should handle the management itself as afterburner only affects the P0 power state
