nVidia GTX 580 advice

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hi,

I recently bought an ASUS GTX 580 DCII - the one with two fans and factory overclocked to 782 MHz.

I want to clock it back to stock speeds. I can do it in nVidia control panel but it seems to be a driver setting and is lost when I restart the computer. Is there any way to change the default clock speed settings in the card's own CMOS / BIOS?

Im not sure about ASUS, but I have the MSI version and the support is great. Contact asus and see if theyll make a custom BIOS file for you, MSI does it and hopefully ASUS will too.

Just download and install MSI Afterburner. Set the frequencies back to the stock ones, and check the button to apply overclocking at system startup.

Also, you could enable voltage control in the settings. Since you're decreasing the frequency you could probably lower the voltage a little bit too.

The harder way, but no software required, would be to use NiBiTor to edit the bios on the card back to stock frequency and then flash it.
