GTX 670 FTW and the drivers from Nvidia

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
I feel like my card is getting worse after every new driver update. I can't tell if I'm getting used to the feel of 60 FPS and that 50-below isn't cutting it for me....or if it's problems from all these WHQL drivers. Like for instance, when I first started playing on PC, I was playing Crysis and I remember having no fps problems at that point. I think the driver version was 314.-- , but now when I play it, it is all kinds of craziness. What is it?!

Yes, my card is overclocked

Cant really speak to the drivers NVidia is putting out, but I can say once I flashed my 2 gigabyte 670's to 770's, they feel awesome now. Might wanna give it a try.

No, I wouldn't want to risk something like that. I still love my card. Plus, you flashing your 670s to 770s is a bit hard to believe. i've heard of that on 680s, but nooot on 670s.

There's a pretty large thread on here about it. Just search

OP, it could certainly be the overclock, just set it back to defaults and see if the problems persist.

if the problems stay then i'd probably do a clean install of the drivers.

i'll go and try that. But just out of curiousity, how is overclocking making my card potentially slowing my gaming performance?

have you tried the new beta driver 337.50? for some reason my GTX 680 runs better on beta drivers, 337.50 and the beta just before it ran great for me. I know that whql and beta drivers are pretty much the same but in the past I had a few TDR's with whql drivers but never with a beta driver.
oh and my gpu is overclocked. also I never use driver cleaner or registry cleaners for my drivers, I use windows add remove programs then in the nvidia driver package I choose custom/advanced option and only tic the driver and PhysX as that's all I use, then I choose clean install.
if you are using GeForce experience get rid of it as it's just junk.

if the game is demanding enough, a slightly unstable overclock can ruin your FPS whether it be in the form of wild fluctuating FPS, sudden big drops in FPS, or straight up crashing. however, it's also the easiest thing to check and verify; just reset your clocks to default values.

crysis is a very CPU dependent game though.

I have tried this but to no avail. My frames went right back down. My OC is mainly on the memory. On the side of fluctuations in performance and all, im gonna have to benchmark around and see.
CPU-wise i think mine is pretty downpat. a OC 3820...unless that <===is the new "suck" nowadays.

^^That actually helped a bit. I gained a couple in performance. Thanks!
