The temps stay around 42c when the gpu is loaded to 70% but never went above 50 when loaded to 100%, which are decent temperatures from what I've seen.
How would I check if there was throttling going on? Would it show up on msi afterburner as the clocks going down? If so, I haven't seen the clocks change between folding and normal use. I'm thinking (and hoping) that I it's a software issue, since the gpu will load much more than 70% while playing games like BC2.
Ahaa! I think I've found the culprit! I forgot that I recently changed my smp client's settings to actually utilize all 4 cores (I just realized that it wasn't before). I went ahead and shut down my smp client and all of a sudden my gpu usage went back to 100%. So I guess my smp client is robbing my gpu3 of power, so I gotta figure out how to fix that now....Edited by rasa123 - 3/8/11 at 8:21pm
