nVidia beta drivers 326.19 can't be overclocked?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I'm trying to use nVidia inspector to overclock the GTX660M found in my Lenovo Ideapad y580. This worked fine with all of the previous drivers, but now, when I click "apply clocks and voltage", windows will immediately give BSOD with the message "IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL". So is it just not possible to overclock with this, or do I need to use something that's not nVidia inspector (since Skyrim's mods don't work too well with afterburner and precision X). I don't want to revert to my old drivers, either, since these give me a ~10 boost in Tomb Raider...

I was able to overclock in the beta drivers using EVGA Precision X

The only problem is that on my laptop, if I use either precision X or Afterburner, it overclocks P-state 0. However, using P-State 0 on my Lenovo tends to be very unstable, which is why I have to force P-state 5 and overclock in nVidiainspector. That's what I kind of have a problem with.

Did you update you NVI? each new driver requires an update on their behalf, I had a similar problem with the new Beta drivers, what I did was using Firestorm to OC it instead, while I wait on NVI new update.
