Hi all, I am begining to get slightly frustrated with gpu boost 2.0 because whenever i play a nontaxing game like garry's mod itll usually run at 30% load and half clock speeds causing random frame dips . i am on 1080p for the record. no my cpu is not bottlenecking it because i have played bf3 64 player and had more fps than i do in garrys mod. So i have come to the conclusion that it is gpu boost. due to the fact i have a secondary system that is a piece a crap with a 560ti slapped into it that gets more fps with the 560ti being bottlenecked. So long story short how do i disable gpu boost, or, if it isnt gpu boost what is it?

Doesn't work that way.

When I'm playing Fallout New Vegas which is not intensive, the voltage will drop accordingly.

I had done this before but for some reason it caused my gpu to be at full clockspeeed and voltage all the time for some reason. And i thought i read something about skys bios pegging it at max voltage in the owners club for some reason, if not my mistake.

Full clockspeed and voltage is not going to hurt anything as long as temperatures are kept in check.

On Sky's bios, my cards run 1045 mhz at 1.05v in FO New Vegas if I don't touch anything.

i dont want mine to die
Meanwhile there are hundreds of others who have had zero issues.

If you leave your temp mark in Precision to 80c, the card will throttle at 80c to protect itself.

Sorry for asking the question here, but I have a similar observation as the OP and didn't feel like creating a separate thread for it.Flashing the skynet bios on my reference zotac 780ti turns the voltage all the way upto 1.212V and remains there,at full gpu load even if the card is not overclocked.There is no way to run the card at lower voltages for different clock speeds.Since I am on air, the reference cooler is not able to handle this voltage even at 100% fan speed and the temps reach 90°C .This has made me switch to the stock bios.How do people undervolt their card on the skynet bios?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Just set Prefer maximum performance in nvidia control panel, this will make it so the card does not go below stock clocks on applications. You can always change it back and there's no harm in using it as long as you watch you temps

Not sure why this is. When I'm benching, I have to use Precision to up my voltage to 1.212v.

I played Metro LL for hours yesterday. Both of my Ti were running 1045 mhz and voltages were 1.05 and 1.062v during play.

90c on 1.212v with 100% fanspeed? There's no way in hell that's normal. The card should run more like, 60-65c at 100% with 1.212v BIOS and hefty OC.
If I was you i'd clean and repaste the card cause those temps are way too high.
