GTX 1060 downclocking

post #1 of 18
Thread Starter 
Hey guys just a quick question for you brainy bunch out there...
I have watercooled gtx 1060 overclocked to 2.1ghz. My temps never go over 60c on a summers day with heaven running for an hour... One thing i am wondering tho...
I know gpus slowly underclock themselves as they increase in it.. Is there anyway i could turn this feature off?
my gpu downclocks it self from 2101mhz to 2088mhz at 53c and again to 2076mhz at 58c...
As i mentioned my gpu is fully watercooling and the fans are the 240mm rad are currently only at 30-40% to achieve these temps. I know for sure im not going to exceed 60c at any point but is there anyway to turn off this feature i can have 2.1ghz and for it not to downclock at the temps above? If possible i want the card to ofcourse downclock when not gaming and casually browsing the web but whilst game i want the full 100% 2.1ghz at all times..
Any thoughts?
Many thanks

Why would you want to underclock if you have a water-cool'd setup?

thats the opposite of what i want. The gpu underclocks itself at certain temp increments. Knowing ill never go over 60c or hit a dangerous temp i want it to run at 2.1ghz all the time whilst gaming not underclock at certain points.. However i dont want it to run 2.1
ghz constant whilst just casually browsing the web

Ah okay, what program are you using to overclock? Let's see a screenshot, have you tried raising the voltage? Power Limit? Temp Limit?

im using MSI afterburner
settings all displayed there
card runs at 1607mhz when doing nothing... which is fine...
card runs at 2101mhz until it hits 53c then downclocks to 2088mhz to prevent it overheating.. I know for a fact being watercooled it wont overheat and like i say never exceeds 60c i just want to stop this happening basically
its not a huge deal it would just be nice

Turn your voltage up to 85-90%
Your core clock between 130-200. (not sure what your card can handle)
Go to gpuz and look under memory type. If you have Samsung memory, you can likely overclock your ram to 4500, or higher. So that would be +500 instead of 300 in after burner under memory clock.

Try to run a game, see what clocks you're pulling after 15-30 minutes.

this is the most stable overclock i can achieve... all gpus downclock when they hit temp increments, i just want to stop it doing that not change my overclock

with voltage on 100% it still does the same 13mhzish downclock at certain temp increments

This is normal operation of GPU boost 3.0 unfortunately, I have a max stable OC of around 2088 but as the temp rises the clock will drop and settles at around 2000 when temps even out around 65c. I think the clocks start dropping from around 45-50c.

AFAIK, I don't think you can bypass the temperature induced down-clocking. Your best bet would be to turn those fans up/get better fans if you want better temps at the same rpms/noise levels. I will say, 53*C seems high for a 1060 on a water loop (even if it is on one 240mm rad).
