Overclock does not "stay", drops back and causes game to crash sometimes?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I'm using MSI afterburner with my GTX580 Black Ops edition, and I oc'd it to 937/2090. I have an aftermarket cooler on it so temps never go above 72 C @ 1.138 voltage.

I recently got saints row the third and I will have MSI afterburner running at the top left of the screen so I can monitor it. The game crashes after a bit and I notice the core clock and voltages drop back to stock. Why is this? I've tested for stability in 3d mark and Furmark for hours and the card seems to work fine at the OC settings.

Is my OC unstable? Also, I check the box to "Force Constant Voltage", yet the voltage still likes to drop to its stock voltage sometimes. I have the monitor in nvidia settings set to performance and power settings to performance and whatnot. Also, I am experiencing purplish texture issues from objects in the game.

Basically, could it be possible that I have an unstable OC even though I tested it? How do I force MSI afterburner to keep my settings as I have the profile locked and applied on startup, etc.

thanks!

Does it only happen in Saint's Row? Or do all your games do it?

I haven't played any games recently except for saints row. I've noticed in the past though that it has occurred it crysis 2. Should I try upping the voltage to 1.15?
