...may have been a glitch with Afterburner.

 

I have both my GPUs running the same speed, supposedly, and I had a default profile pushing an overclock at startup.  The issue is, I had GPU2 selected in the Afterburner menu, and for some reason it wasn't synchronizing settings with GPU1.  Infact, for some reason it was keeping GPU1 idle Power State2, 500 / 150 MHz.  Very annoying and caused a variety of BSOD.

 

Solution to prevent this, was switching the GPU selector back to GPU1, uncheck Synchronize cards, close Afterburner, start Afterburner back up, reset to defaults, select synchronize video cards, restart AB one more time, then apply default clocks or overclock.

 

A simple uninstall / reinstall of Afterburner didn't seem to catch, assume a registry setting was caught in the mix somewhere.


AB is still buggy, especially depending upon a variety of other conditions, like using a driver with the proper files for clock control. Heck, all on its own sometimes AB just doesn't even work, ie. failure to actually overclock the cards. You have to close it and reopen it. It's really annoying when your're trying to run a bench, like 3dmark which is the most annoying bench app because it dumps you out to the desktop a bazillion times during the bench, and you have to trust that AB ramps the clocks back up. LOL.

Same here. I'm new to OC world, but yeah... would love to get some "advice" on this.

I'm running 12.3 and my 2nd card is staying at 3d clocks too. If I run 3dmark11 once, then it kicks my card into 2d clocks after and stays wth.gif

My 1st is on water and goes to 500/1500 and the 2nd on air goes to 300/150 after a 3dmark run. My water card sits at 30-32c no matter what, but the air card at 3d clocks sits at 57c. If I run 3dmark11 real quick then it clocks down and sits at only 33c on air rolleyes.gif dame drivers.

wouldn't do that until GK110 drops. Even when that drops the 7990 will have been out for a while and prolly faster. Dame AMD let go of my nutz.
