Low clocks while gaming High clocks while not gaming

post #1 of 30
Thread Starter 
Hi guys I have this kind of issue these days (most likely since the beginning but didn't notice it since I was not playing heavy games).

Basically when I am gaming I see the gpu clocks stuck at 160-200 and when I am not gaming they go up to 1000

Is this a common problem or the card is faulty?

After looking at your other thread (http://www.overclock.net/t/1548507/gtx-970-g1-gaming-is-stuck-at-200-400-mhz-while-playing), I'd say that it's due to using Molex to PCI-E adapters with a generic PSU.

 

 

Edit: I see now that the 700W Aerocool VP Pro has 4 x 6+2-pin PCI-E connectors, yet you are still using nothing but Molex to PCI-E adapters. So, I would say that this is the problem.

So should I buy a modular psu?

Because for example in Dark Souls 2 I have a 800mhz with 60steadyfps with everything on high.

On the other side I tried both TW3 which has just been released and a older game like batman arkham origins my clocks are bound to 200 with 10-20 fps.

If it was the PSU shouldn't it bottleneck every game?

You don't need a modular psu. Just buy a good quality psu.

You can find recommended psu in the link.

The quality of a PSU isn't better because it's modular. The quality is determined by what's inside.

 

Anyway, I just looked up the 700W Aerocool VP Pro and I see that it has 4 x 6+2-pin PCI-E connectors. So, why are you using those adapters? I don't understand.

The PSU looks like the bottleneck in your setup, even possibly a liability. GPU will throttle aggressively if the power isn't adequate. Some will just crash out.

Get a decent PSU, Bronze certified, good brand, gaming oriented (2x 8 pin PCI-E), over 550W.

What do you mean 2cables?

When I mounted the GPU I saw that I should have connected the PSU to it, I used the 6pin and 4pin already connected in the psu. Did I do something wrong? Which cables should I connect?

What? Your photo in your other thread shows that you are using adapters:

 

LL 

 

 

Get rid of those and use the 6+2-pin PCI-E connectors. I'm talking about these (the 2nd photo from the right):

 

VP_PRO_700W-4.jpg 

 

Just use those directly into the video card.

 

So again, why are you using those adapters?

Your PSU should be able to take care of your GPU.


straight from the original thread.



Your PSU has 4 PCIE connectors.
