Odd reading in afterburner with my 670

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
So I have a GTX 670 and have been running MSi Afterburner when gaming just to monitor temps and whatnot and I noticed a weird reading.

Apparently at some point, my highest power draw reached 298%, somehow. I know its likely a glitch with Afterburner, not my card, but figured it cant hurt to double-check.

I have the Gainward GTX 670 Phantom. I havent OCed it at all, its factory OCed is all.


My clock speeds never went higher than the rated max and the temp has only gone as high as 72, so Im fairly sure its a glitch.

Ya lol you would fry your card if you took in almost 3x times the power. Theres not even enough 6 pin/ 8 pin power cables on the card to supply that much. Just a glitch.

The program 100% bugged out. You would never be able to hit that kind of power draw with the connections available on the card.

I fiigured as much.

I'd assume if I did hit that kind of draw, my GPU would currently be melting in the bottom of my case.

Did you go into sleep mode at any time when AB was running? My laptop does this when I go in and out of sleep mode:
