GTX 660 Ti downclocking - Page 2

post #11 of 25
Thread Starter 
I just experienced a problem. I was watching a replay and FPS was low in the 30's with the clock @ 1006 MHz only. The FPS dipped into around 10 in heavy battles. And then suddenly the game turned off with a directX/OpenGL error. What?
EDIT : Also I don't understand this exact part :
" The command line is required to do this. Either run "cmd" and locate the directory containing nvidia inspector, or create a .bat file in its directory.
Force P8 (idle) nvidiaInspector.exe -forcepstate:0,8
Force P2 (custom) nvidiaInspector.exe -forcepstate:0,2
Return to Default nvidiaInspector.exe -forcepstate:0,16 "
So I just create a .txt file, rename it to .bat, and then put in it one of the codes?

P2 is the custom profile it'll run. It's used when playing games. Then P8 is where it'll be running at idle like it normally does.

So you made the .bat file, put nvidiaInspector.exe -forcepstate:0,2 in it and run it.

Then just follow the steps after that.


I'd create the overclock.bat file then just so your card isn't running at full load even when idling.

nvidiaInspector.exe -setBaseClockOffset:0,0,135 -setMemoryClockOffset:0,0,500 -setpowertarget:0,111 -setVoltageOffset:0,0,187500 -setGpuClock:0,2,1311 -setMemoryClock:0,2,3500 -forcepstate:0,2

I'll write it here just in case you don't get the numbers: Put the 135 at 0 since you are not overclocked, same goes with the 500. Where the 111 is, put your max power target number. Leave 187500 if you have not done a modded BIOS to increase voltage. 1311 is what your card boosts up to at max, 3500 is whatever memory clock it boosts up to (mine is 3500 for a 670), and that's pretty much it. Run it when you join a game.

Then for the force_idle.bat, just run as administrator when you browsing the web and not gaming.


And as for the error, was it in BF3? Not really uncommon to get that. I'm on 306.97 right now as no other driver works for me with that game. TDR issues, everything turning purple, etc.

No the error was in StarCraft 2. I'll check your reply and report back.

Sorry for not replying earlier I couldn't try out the method I was a bit busy. Thanks for your concern, deeply appreciated.
So, do I need to just create the overclock.bat file and run it when I wanna play, then use force_idle.bat when I'm not in a game? Or do I still need to do the adjustments stated in the thread in the program itself?
Can I just revert to normal mode after using overclock.bat? If so, how to? Or am I better off with forcing idle when not gaming?

No problem!

And yes, create the overclock.bat file when you are gaming then use the force_idle.bat when idling. The force_idle is the same thing as "normal mode" when you are not gaming. And that is all really. I assume you did all the P2 adjustments in the program already?

So I should create a .bat file with the following in it :
nvidiaInspector.exe -forcepstate:0,2
To force the P2 right?
Then create this :
nvidiaInspector.exe -forcepstate:0,8
To force the P8 idle?
Should I use the P2 mode or should I just use the overclock.bat file in the first step which is
" 1. Force P2 mode using "nvidiaInspector.exe -forcepstate:0,2"."

Yes, correct. Run the P2 file you made then do all steps 2-4. And then do the P8 when idling.

And use the overclock.bat since the file itself already has P2 mode in the command:

nvidiaInspector.exe -setBaseClockOffset:0,0,135 -setMemoryClockOffset:0,0,500 -setpowertarget:0,111 -setVoltageOffset:0,0,187500 -setGpuClock:0,2,1311 -setMemoryClock:0,2,3500 -forcepstate:0,2

so I use the P2 file only when doing the above steps? Then use the overclock.bat from then on?
And is it possible to reverse the program and completely remove what it did?

Yes. For all the steps just make sure you have P2 on and use overclock.bat for gaming.

If you everything back to normal, create another .bat file and enter this in:
