Trust me on this one, just leave it. It'll be fine.
Fersure, I didnt know that haha oh well ^_^

I am getting about 85-93C on folding. I don't know if you will be able to get it to 1GHz, I haven't heard of anyone doing it other than myself and somone on non-air. It's hard and most max out at 850-900MHz

Go to nvidia control panel -> manage 3d settings -> power management mode -> change it to "prefer max performance".
With my hawk i got 970 mhz. But didnt push more..

The MSI Hawk doesnt have Cooling on the VRM's. If you have the Card overclocked, the VRM's might have gotten so hot that they Downclock the GPU to save themselves.

Get GPU-Z and see in the sensor tab where it says VDDC temperatures. what does it say when you play? (put record while minimized on)

Under power management i dont have that setting, i only have adaptive :{
how would i go on about changing it to prefer max performance ?

The thing is that i didnt overclock anything yet but when i play the core clock goes up all the way to 780 -_-... Idk if this is normal or not but in my case there are red lights on my hawk card near the 2 6-pin power connections...

could it be driver problems???
post #18 of 22
It's unlikely it's driver issues. Extremely unlikely. I'm fairly sure it's not the VRM's overheating as well, as although the Hawk doesn't have actual heatsinks on the VRM's, there's enough incident airflow from the dual fans to keep them relatively cool.

And at sub, the red LED's are indication of the amount of power your card is drawing. More lights means more power. Less lights means less power. Go check how many lights are on when it drops to 450MHz. It should be around 2 or 3. If this is the case, it's perfectly fine. And @Pangelveit, I'm not sure if this is true or not, but the Hawk has a custom PCB, so I'm not sure if the Nvidia control panel will display everything it needs to display on a normal 460.

dang how about updating the bios or something? well i think its 2 or 3 lights when it throttles down to 450 and then all of them turn on when it comes back to 780. I have a 700W PSU -__- . I just want to be able to play a game without it throttling out of no where.. I dont understand why that performance option isn't on my power settings !
post #20 of 22
I'm guessing that the option isn't there because the MSI Hawk has a custom PCB. Also, it won't throttle down when you're in the middle of a game. The drivers/whatever controls the core speed will make sure of that.

I have a 650W PSU. I don't even get close to using all 650W. Do you know what speedstep is for the Intel CPU's? It's the same general idea. If the N460 isn't in heavy use, it'll run at lower speeds to conserve power and to generate less heat. It is not a problem, but rather a nice little thing to keep the heat down. Sure, you might not be @ 100% load on your GPU even at 780MHz, but still, whatever counts, right? I wouldn't recommend updating the BIOS of the card. It's risky if you're not experienced at it. It's perfectly normal to have it downclock when not in use.
