560 Keeps Underclocking at 930mhz

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
Hi people,
i have an asus 560, and for some reason it keeps underclocking?
the highest clock speed ive seen out of this card at standard was about 945mhz, can play crysis 2 and entier day or furmark for hours on end without a problem,

When it comes to folding, for days on end it stil wont hold any clocks i give it, it just goes back to 405, any ideas?

Sounds like your overclock is failing, then when windows recovers the driver it sets it to 405MHz.

Its better to get your GPU stable. If your GPU is downclocking it is unstable. Try lowering the Core speed 10-20MHz or raising the voltage. You could also try running the fan at a higher speed, if you havent already. A cooler card overclocks better.

This happens to people at stock clocks and I've heard it to be caused by bad drivers on nvidias part. I can fire up a game at stock speeds (or my OC) and every now the card enters power saving mode (the issue OP seems to be describing). Forcing your card never to enter this mode like DarkBlade6 suggested is a work around but I wouldn't call it a solution.

As far as I'm aware there isn't a way to fix it. If there is please let me know..

OP: Open Nvidia Control panel, click Manage 3D settings on the left, scroll down the list to Power Management Mode, change it from Adaptive to Prefer Maximum Performance.

Just try it at stock settings and see if you get the same problem.

Try this:

download GPU-z. run it and leave it open on the desktop. you can minizmize it but dont close it. I believe this will force 3D clocks at all times on the desktop. Almost forgot ... in addition, you must set "prefer maximum performance" in the nvidia control panel.

Let me know if it works.
