Problem with overclocking GTX 670 with EVGA Precision X

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
I recently bought a Gigabyte GTX 670 Windforce 3x and its a great card.But today i decided to overclock it,and i got around 1188mhz on the core and ~1700 on the memory using the Precision X.
The problem is that when i tried to return the clocks back to default,using the default button nothing happened.
The strangest thing is that gpu-z isn't detecting the clock.


Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I thought EVGA Precision X only worked with EVGA cards?

Not really.It doesn't matter.
I tried MSI Afterburner,no effect.
I'm using the latest drivers 310.70

i know on my system, the clocks are not taking and or showing on gpuz or precision. i had to do a clean install of the drivers then it all showed up.

Yes, You can try to restart your computer and see if that fixes the problem. If not I would recommend following the directions in this thread then re-installing the graphics drivers.

Strange. Does the Nvidia Control Panel work correctly? I've had issues with my control panel that were related to a DisplayLink monitor I have connected - you don't have anything like that do you? Have you tried rolling back to an older driver?

The Control Panel works just fine.I have 1 dvi monitor connected.
I'm going to try with the 306.97 drivers now.

I noticed the same thing with EVGA precision and stopped using it and went back to afterburner..I re-flashed bios and all was well...Not suggesting the risk vs reward is worth it, but it fixed the issue.
