Ive noticed my 580gtx no longer gets above 40C when crunching 2 work units and noticed that in gpu-z the core clock is throttled down to 405mhz and the memory clock is down to 162mhz.. why is it doing this? i want it to run these wu's at full speed and capacity! I do have evga precision running but i have the gpu clock speeds set to the factory setting. so i dont know why its going so low when it has a load put on it.

I think you may save the settings (even if they are == factory settings) in Profile in EVGA Precision
and then in EVGA Precision properties (wrench) - Profiles tab - Automatic profiles management
select this Profile as both 2D profile and 3D profile

Or save Profile slightly different than the factory settings (e.g. + or - 5 MHz) and use that.


Also see if you can find a way to disable Power management by NVIDIA Control Panel settings

OK just updated to the new 295.73 nvidia drivers and that seems to have fixed the issue thanks!
