Is this strange?

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
I am wondering why Riva and 3DMark05 are reading my core clock speed as 300MHz on a BFG 6600GT OC... I recently noticed in the Riva Tuner hardware monitoring section, that my core clock speed jumps from 300MHz to 525MHz and back down periodically. I want to be sure my card is running at what I clock it to run at, 525 is the default core clock speed. Am I missing something? Any help much appreciated.

Thanks

Do you know what the temp of your GFX is? It sounds like it might be thermal throttling if the temps are too high
EDIT: Just spotted the temps on the bottom graph, it's not that then!

The 300mhz thing is the factory setting 2d clock. Your 3d setting is much higher. You shouldnt have anything too worry about. It is probably looking at both settings. You probably havent overclocked your 2d yet.
EDIT: I would recommend coolbits 2.0 or ATi tool (it workds with nvidia)

there's no need to overclock 2D mode (IMO but maybe someone has a good reason to). it just causes unnecessary increases in temperatures and electricity usage. if your 3D OC is where you want it, that's all you need to worry about because that's the clock speed it will run at as soon as the card detects a 3D application

Well When I had mine clocked at 2d it performed much MUCH better with the source engine (hl2, css etc). So IMO I would do it.

Allow me 2D clock is the speed it is at in say Windows or when you browse the web etc. 3D is the clock it sets itself to when you start to play games so there is no need to OC when you are browsing the web and stuff lol.
