Any way to stop the throttling yet?

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Haven't been into the computer world in about 3-4 months and was wondering if anyone found a way around the 70C thermal throttling yet. My card doesn't speed throttle at 70C but drops voltage from 1.175v to 1.162v at said temps and want to stop it from doing it.

P.S. I have a ASUS 660 TI DCU-2

    It is doing that to protect itself.  Find a way to make it run cooler instead.

Protecting itself from that big bad 70c.

If it was protecting itself it would be kicking in at 85-90c. As it stands right now, it's Nvidia being ridiculously conservative.

    The farther it is kept from the absolute max, the longer it will last and the lower the chance of random failure will be.  That is probably what nVidia had in mind when they programmed it to throttle at 70°C.
    With all the posts on OCN about video card troubles, the last thing we need is someone to override the conservative protection that was put in by the manufacturer for the very purpose of reducing the possibility of those issues, IMHO. wink.gif

That doesn't change the fact that 70c is way too low to have any kind of throttling, unless Nvidia used junk parts for the 6xx series and they have abnormally high failure rates at common temperatures? 85-90c throttling would indicate a good balance of high quality components and playing it safe.

85-90 is HOT, to be running at 75-80 would've been less conservative. buy and aftermarket cooler put it on and watch that at max voltage and usage you dont go above 60-65 (maybe lower) and see that there is no more throttling.

Fermi cards can handle 80-90c under load no problem.

Kepler is not as heat friendly.
Back off the OC, or find a more effective way to cool the card.

Manual at geforce forums said that their still doing their thing regarding the throttle issue and that they will roll out a driver "in the coming week".... this was back in the middle of april.

I have a gut feeling though that we will see this driver on the 23rd when they roll out the 700 series.

What exactly did Manuel say? Are they going to up the threshold a bit hopefully? I love my whisper quiet 680 running at 80-85c, but the throttling is a little annoying since the throttle causes noticable hitching in games when it happens.
