When does the GPU to start to Throttle?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I got my GTX570HD. At 30% fan speed its very quiet. But if I leave it at that while gaming my card gets to about 90 degrees. And while playing it seems like my card starts to get a little choppy while playing BC2. At what temp would the card start t throttle or slow down my game play? Because when I set it to auto the fan speed gets to about 60% and its way way to loud for my tastes. Also when gaming with a ATI card like the 6870 or 6950, it seem like it plays it smoother than the GTX570 I know that sounds crazy but it really seems like that. Is BC2 more optimized for ATI than Nvidia?

Theres a thread in the Nvidia section about Nvidia cards, only Fermi though I think, having bad performance in BC2. You could check that out. And also I dont think a GPU should throttle down at 90 degrees, the TJ Max is somewhere above 100 degrees. Unless you changed it somehow or the GTX570HD is special. Use Afterburner to monitor your clock speeds to see if it really is downclocking/throttling. If it is, then you might have an unstable GPU overclock.
