New GTX 760 and no more Afterburner! Precision Help!

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Hey guys,

I just recently bought a EVGA GTX760 Super Clocked from Amazon. I received it to day, and installed it and noticed MSI Afterburner was being all wonky with my new card. So I found that EVGA has their own software called Precision X. I installed the software but have no clue how to read this thing! If anyone has some tips on how to read this and make sure my card is working correctly, that would be great. I am also currently googling around to find out the safe temps for this card. Currently the max it has reached in a game like World of Warcraft was 55 C ish.

I am not sure if this card is doing what it is suppose to be doing, but while writing this post the GPU Clock is at 135 mhz and 850 voltage according the Precision X. But when I go into WoW, the numbers rise quite significantly. Is this how this card works? My old 470 just sat at the same clocks/voltage.

This is the card I have:

Yes, new cards throttle down when not in use, that's normal. Afterburner should work with that card...try this....http://www.guru3d.com/files_details/msi_afterburner_beta_download.html Beta version 3.0 I've been using it for a couple weeks now. 95c is safe MAXIMUM. Try to stay below 85c and you're stylin thumb.gif

I had the latest version of the Afterburner, so must be something wrong with that. I will try out the beta version. So far I have yet to have to manually set my fans, so this is a huge step up from my hot ass 470!

Thanks for the reply. I really like the looks of the Precision X software, so if anyone has any tips/guides on how to properly use it, that would be awesome.

It looks pretty much the same as afterburner, just move the sliders to overclock, and adjust fan speeds. Voltage control tab on left

Yeah, I did that twice. Uninstalled, installed. Uninstalled, removed the file I downloaded, installed again. Nothing.
