Precision X 4.2.0 issue

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hey, folks
So I went on a little vacation last week, came back today and saw there was a new update for Precision X; ver. 4.2.0. I went forward with the update and what not, when I decided to do a little tweaking on my card (EVGA GTX 660 SC 2GB). I usually go up in increments of 5MHz with initial testing. I did the same today, but when I applied the +5MHz core clock alteration, Precision X pushed both memory and core clocks to +46510MHz! It also pushed the power offset to 0%. After a couple seconds, my screen got a greenish hue (no doubt because of the alterations). So I booted into safe mode and got rid of Precision X entirely. This fixed the issue, but I really like using Precision X for the fan boosts as well as overclocking. So, does anyone have a similar issue and/or a fix to this issue?

EDIT: Reinstalled as administrator and the issue is no longer occurring, but I'm still curious as to how common this issue is.

Thanks,
Decheka

I'd give it a 2nd try. I love the new 4.2 update. Gives me a lot more monitoring, osd is back, and it looks a lot better. I'd try to reinstall it, make sure our card is at stock clock. Maybe try to reinstall the drivers again after u install precision.
I was using precision for awhile, went to MSI afterburner for a few months, and just now got back to precision after the 4.2 update. I don't think ill ever go back! Really impressed with this!

Yeah, I just had to reinstall as an admin and it worked like a charm.

I'll give this "reinstall as admin" thing a try. I decided to update to latest NVidia drivers and precision X versions this past weekend and am having some new issues. Can't pin down which is the culprit exactly.

I noticed that my 2500k computer with a EVGA 460 GTX model 1380 seems to bog down randomly (web pages stop scrolling, video playback pauses) with some usage that doesn't show up in the standard windows processes list as using CPU is still hitting processor with low grade usage (like 10% on many different cores). That seems to go away when I close down Precision X 4.2.0 and my computer is not "stuttering" after that.

Then my previously fine overclock settings on the 460 seem like they're not working. When my computer should go into "sleep" I find that my displays are acting like the computer crashed (one display is just black screen, but not going to sleep, the other goes to sleep, but can't be woken up by mouse clicks, etc...) but the computer then doesn't respond to any keypresses/mouse clicks/power button presses making me think the whole thing has crashed during entering sleep. I'll go through uninstalling/rolling back the nvidia driver (I guess I got the one people are complaining about on Fermi cards) and see what happens with that.

How are you suppose to increase the voltage? I click on Voltage but it stays gray
