on 1080p it clocks down to 250mhz...

is that normal? (tried different powersaving settings)

Do you have more than one monitor? I had the same issues with 2 monitors @ 144hz. Put my secondary monitor to 120hz with optimal (not maximum) on power management in Nvidia Control Panel, and it fixed the problem

I've just one monitor with display port (benq xl2730). :/
could it be caused by using pcie2.0 (Mainboard is Asus P8z68 Deluxe from 2011 with latest bios).

would a bios update help? I'm on f3 with 125% powerlimit.

This may have been mentioned already, but in your Nvidia Control Panel, make sure that your Power management setting is set to Adaptive. Sorry if this is repeated wackosmiley.gif

Does not need to be set to adaptive. "Optimal" works as well. (I have optimal on).

Yeah, just make sure it's not maximum performance. That'll stop it from down clocking

oops wrong thread lol.

Been clicking through the pages and seen quite a few mention "50 at idle" I seem to be having the very same issue frown.gif. Is there a way to fix this? Never had this issue with previous GPU's

One of you said 50 at idle 60 in games. Mine is around about 50 in idle and between 60 and 70 in games it's all very odd lol.

I installed that crap software *your words smile.gif* to run that out of the box OC mode, even before that though it was similar temperatures. By the way is it safe to use the OC mode? Apart from boosting this I had no intention of overclocking, I'm just trying to figure out how to lower the idle temperatures as 50 is ridiculous, glad I'm not the only one with this issue.

I tested everything. Clean install drivers, changing hz on main monitor, changing which one is main monitor, uninstalling afterburner, etc etc etc.

What did it for me is that i was running 2x 144hz monitors. So i just put the secondary monitor @ 120hz. Boom, fixed idle clockspeed went down and now im down to 32C idle.

You have to check that you have "optimal mode" or "adaptive" and not "Maximum performance" or whatever it is called, in nvidia control panel

Grr, I do have dual 1440P monitors but only one of them is 144hz the other is 60hz (limited) frown.gif. Seems mine is a different issue. Maybe I should try knocking my 144hz monitor down to 120hz. Maybe even change the power options back to balanced instead of high performance in Windows. Something is clearly not right here. Was also wondering whether it was the NVIDIA drivers, they have been known to release drivers that run higher temps, but not enough mentions for that to be the case. Weird...

Yup, mine is set to Power management mode: Optimal power. I set the maximum performance per game not standard.

Yeah not sure frown.gif I dont have 144Hz screens but I have 3 x 1440p @ 60Hz and my clocks idle at 278Mhz with temp sitting at 37c...I too am running High Performance in windows with my Nvidia Control Panel set to Optimal.

What happens if you disable the secondary monitor? win+p is a quick way to flick between the different display modes.

I found it was simply their fan curve that had me idle at 50. Made my own now idle around 30-33
