evga precision overclock issue

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
hi all-

well i have a evga gtx 670 and msi gtx 670 (secondary in sli). i played around with precision 4.2.1 k-boost setting. both gpus in sync. k-boost feature enabled constant 1.175v on the gpu and i didn't like this and i clikc k-boost to turn it off. only the evga gtx 670 got reset properly but not the msi gtx 670. the voltage still remain 1.175v according to nvidia inspector and evga precision. it seem that the voltage on the msi gtx 670 got locked at 1.175v. are there way to reset this? did this ever happened to anyone?


thanks for the help.

I had a similar issue with Precision X showing wonky voltages. Switched to Afterburner and all is well again.

GFX cards do not magically reprogram themselves after a month or so.

You have rogue application or setting that either does not allow entering lower state or it forces higher power state. It could be started via rootkit/virus or legitimate process via autorun/System scheduler.
Think about it... what have you changed within your system or installed in the meantime? Figure it out and revert back.

1) Try System Restore
2) Try forcing power saving with NV inspector(RIGHT-CLICK Show Overclocking -> Multi Display Power Saver-> Select your GPU). Yes, I know your don't have multi-monitor setup.
3) Try clean booting your PC

the option 2 worked but it return to the voltage issue if i undo the step. if you look at the nvidia inspector screen at the "P-State" it normally set to P8 but when i have this forced voltage and gpu clock issue the P-State become P0. i really don't know how to fix this. i will need to do the option 2 everytime it reset. does anyone know how to fixed this without going to utilize step 2 each time a reset?
