560 ti twin frozr overclock works in kombustor, but not ingame?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I am trying to overclock my 560 ti twin frozr ii gpu using msi afterburner and have been testing each overclock in kombustor to see if I get improvements. I get about 10% more FPS when I overclock when testing with kombustor BUT when I try the overclocked settings in a game, the highest the speeds get is the cards default settings, not the overclock I set. ie it only shows me 880/1760/2100 [card default] being used ingame, when I have set the overclock to 975/1950/2285, voltage has NOT been changed at all.

Why is afterburner showing me card default settings when I have applied an overclock? When I test with kombustor each clocks usage was the overclock I set it to, when ingame it just shows the card default clocks. Why?

Change nvidia 3d settings to prefer max performance for the game profile you wish to use.
Also, unstable systems can pass furmark and kombuster easy because benchmarks and stress tests are extremely fake and don't use the GPU as a game would. Its like passing an exam but doing crap in an actual job afterwards.
