660 ti overclocking itself?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hey guys, so i have an issue with my EVGA 660 ti that arrises every few months... when i open EVGA precision x to turn up the levels and fan speeds to play a game it is already maxed out on the clock speeds, even though i did not raise them and no programs are running. The temp will be fairly high for being at idle because of the extra power put through the card. If I uninstall the drivers and re install it fixes the issue for about another month or two then it will usually do it again, not a super huge issues but it would be nice not to have to re-install drivers all the time. any thoughts?

So you are saying it sometimes get stuck in full 3D performance mode with full clock speeds, instead of being at idle clocks? That's not quite the same as what your title implies. What driver version are you running? What do you have set for the power mode in the Nvidia Control Panel - adaptive or prefer high performance?

sorry for bad title, ims till pretty new at everything so bare with me. and yes, what your saying is correct. and in the n-vidia control panel i have it set to high performance but ive had that setting for as long as i can remember. and im running the most current driver, the one that was released a few days ago... 310.70. however it has done this with previous drivers aswell

Hmm. Have you tried using Afterburner instead of Precision? They both have the same back-end so I doubt it'll matter, but might be worth a try. The new Precision supports that K-Boost feature, which locks the card ot the boost clock 24/7 - but that's new so it couldn't be affecting you months ago. You sure there isn't anything running in the background that might be causing it - maybe a browser running a flash plug-in or something?

i havent tried, but when i get home i will double check to make sure no programs are running in background. and i do not have the k-boost feature enabled. if that fails i will try afterburner. thanks for your help
