AX1200i

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 
So I am continually getting issues that I am not receiving enough power on my GTX680 4gb model o4g-p4-2686-kr and my memory is defaulting to 1066mhz or so despite being set to 2133 in the mobo. Additionally the cpu is slow to respond as I have intel speedstep enabled and it takes forever to clock back up to higher speeds,

Relevant equipment on the PSU:

Asus Rampage IV Extreme
2 x MCP655
04g-p4-2686-kr (Dual displays, one 1920x1080 via DVI-D, one 1208x1024 via DVI-I, both 60Hz)
2 x FP600BK and by extension 12 x CFT12SB4
5 x R4-S2S-124K-GP (2 attached to mobo, 3 attached via 4pinpsu to 3 pin 12v)


My question is this a faulty PSU? Wouldn't this PSU just supply more and more power until it crashes though? I've had no incidents with that solely the computer programs running at lower clocks. Is this a mobo issue then as they are slow to respond? Any help would be appreciated as I will exchange for a new one if this is not user error.

EDIT: Memory clocks are result of CPU-Z system analysis, bios says its clocked to 2133Mhz; Why would this occur?

It's normal for CPU-Z to report under "DRAM Frequency" that your 2133MHz RAM is running at 1066. Remember that it's DDR (Double Data Rate) RAM, and thus the effective rate is twice the physical rate. 1066 x 2 = 2133 (more or less).

Ah okay what about the graphics card being seen as only 300 mhz or so?

RUN AWAY!!!!

http://www.overclock.net/t/1324891/corsair-deny-all-knowledge-ax1200i-software-broken-probably-applies-to-ax860i-and-ax760i-as-well

Is it coil whining as well?

If you can exchange it for something else, I would.

GPU is probably just idle at desktop... Fire up a game and see where it goes.

As I recall, the GTX 680 runs @ ~300MHz when in 2D mode (i.e. not running a game).

So until I throw on a game it will idle at lower clocks? What about if I overclock?

Overclocking should affect how fast it goes in 3D mode, not 2D mode.

Yes it will still stay at idle for the most part. (there are ways to lock it at full clock but this wastes a lot of power)
Pull up any GPU monitoring program and simply hit a few graphic intense websites and you will see the frequency fluctuate.
Pull up a game and the GPU frequency will stay clocked up at 50%, 100% and 100% + boost depending on the needs of the game.

Awesome thanks for the fast replies as well as the information will take a look at it
