framerate drop and card running cooler

post #1 of 19
Thread Starter 
My card usually gets up to about 70c playing Dragon Age Origins and frame-rates vary but seem to have suddenly dropped on average....at the same time as this the card is suddenly running at 55c.

Seems like a weird coincidence!

The card still idles at the same temp, ambient temps are the same, I can't understand why it has suddenly done both of these things at the same time?

maybe its running 2d clocks on DA

fire up MSI afterburner and check your graphs ie. Usage/clock speeds

I was in the middle of playing when when this happened. I didn't alter anything. Everything looks normal in Afterburner and I downloaded Asus Smartdoctor which says everything is normal.

Could some of the cores have blown or stopped working?

It is not just DAO specific, it does it with Furmark too.

Would SmartDoctor know?

Do you have any Youtube pages (or any pages with Flash animations in the background) opened up? If so, try closing your web browser(s) and see if that helps. If it does, it might be a bug with the current build of Flash.

I ran Unigine Heaven and it runs unusually cool during it, also it is very choppy and the min and max framrates have gone down a lot, the average framerate has gone down a little bit.

Minimum framrate has gone down from 14 to 4 using the same settings. I am sure something is wrong.

have you had any freezes? Maybe BSODs?

So it's running at full clock speeds when the framerate dips occur??

I guess you could try uninstalling the nvidia driver, do a driversweep, then do a clean install.
