View Full Version : GTX295 clocks below stock and holding
06-15-2011, 01:06 AM
A friend of mine has a 295 that was running fine rthe other day. he has been gamong on it and was doing a little folding here and there. it did a good 20 some WU's just a few days ago.( that was part time) now the clocks are way below stock and wont move. the core clock is at 301, I don't remember the others but they are also low.
any idea what could cause this?

my 560Ti does that sometimes it gets stuck in the 2D clocks for some reason restart fixes it

removing gigabytes easy tune6 seems to have fixed it. for some reason the card could play mass effect 2 with no problem, but SC2 was lagging bad. he's trying SC2 ATM to see if we got it. gotta love voice chat.
Nope didn't help
GPU-z says his subvendor is Nvida and apparently the driver he downloaded the other day was the 197.xx . i think he for got to install it after D/L'ing it. auldtimers is turrible Ah tells ya.

ok, turns out he had four drivers between the 197 and the 275 that were D/L'd and unpacked, but never installed. I had him do a clean install of the 275, and bump his clocks up from stock with afterburner. this set them all at a slight O/C which seemed to hold. I'll find out later if it did or not.

clean install is always a good choice

okie dokie, this card has an energy saver feature wich seems to have been stuck in 2D mode. the clean install fixed it. it shifts into 3d mode and back. when running SC2 it does it during the game, but seems to keep up at a point that there is no lag. i guess it's working fine??

I'll tell him and see if he wants to.
