But still, it should not fluctuate. Well, thats how im perceiving the post.

Even thought CSS is very nicely coded, it will not drop the gpu mode unless you go to the loading bar.

If its dropping during gameplay, either driver issues or a hardware issue.

These 4xx cards (the ones I have seen) and I suspect all the generation of the 106+ Fermi GPU's utilize a little txt file that has these "steppings" listed, some people have had success modifying that file... although I would not advise it, overclocking in software like afterburner modifies the high side of that step on the driver level...

As far as it stepping up and down, its a power/heat saving feature, although I have noticed that on air the fan speeds could be modified some (again an afterburner feature) to get the most out of the stepping, to get that cool air on the card while it is stepping down.

From a performance standpoint, to my knowledge it is nill', the card steps as the load increases... sorta like how a modern cards supercharger is clutched out when just idling... saves on your parts and increases your mtbf.

Can you please fill in your computer details in your sig.
Sorry, i have a Q6600 @ 3.2ghz v1.4 - 700w PSU - evga 755i FTW mobo - 4gb of ocz 1066mhz ram, msi hawk 460gtx 1gb .

The weird thing is that in game it will hit 780 for a couple secs then drops.. and then up again and then drops for and idles at 405mhz .. Ive tried changing the drivers, ect no luck!

I have just read your other 3 threads (lol, your PSU has changed afew times in 3 days) and i got a bigger picture of whats up.

Its not your pc hardware, nor is it drivers.

Double check that you can change to "Performance". You stated that you could not, but i have never seen anyone who cannot change it to performance. Check my pic attached.

And make sure that both the power cables are plugged into the GPU. Cannot remember if its 2x 6pins or 6+8
If your PSU has some plugs, use them. Or buy some (like £3) on ebay

haha yea im sorry but i just checked and its definitely a 700w psu lol. I'm running XP and maybe thats the reason why the only option available to me is ADAPTIVE. See here

However, I managed to change the profile settings from adaptive to Performance using Nvidia Inspector. And as for the GPU power cables that was the first thing i checked. *yes its 2x8 .. I've also ran OCT and did the Gpu mem test and it past running 100 loops without errors all at the core clock speed of 780mhz without throttling one bit.. Yet, when I run counterstrike source on all high settings ect, it throttles back and fourth and becomes idle at 405mhz geez! what does a person have to do to be able to run this puppy at some decent clock speeds!!! ha

Doesn't make sense if it steps as the load increases because i ran an occt gpu mem test with 100 loops and as the load increased it did not step one bit. It stayed at a 780mhz constant.

Its counterstrike source(half life 2 Engine)
my gtx 460 runs at 405mhz core always while im playing burnout paradise,but i get solid 60 fps so i dont care...
