2nd gpu throttling down

Post by XstollieX » Wed Dec 02, 2009 11:52 am

Like the topic says my second gpu keeps throttling back while folding. It is my xfx gtx260 black edition. It is killing my ppd on that card. Any way to prevent this? It is currently installed in the i7 rig in my sig.

Yes it is a 2 gpu set up. the clocks are going from 666 core and 1404 shader to 400/799. rebooting now just installed rivatuner to see if that will help but evga's precision hasn't

do you have the power management option set to "maximum performance" in the nvidia control panel? ( i thought that downclocked the gpu for power conservation but im not sure)...silly to ask, but thats the only thing I can think of that could do that

I don't have the power management in nvidia's control panel. I wonder if thats because I am not running an nvidia chipset

I was going to suggest that it might be your GPU is getting too hot, but it seems you figured it out.

You folding on both GPUs?
Intel Core i5-3570K @ 4.2Ghz @ 1.16V (CPU-Z + LinX)
Gigabyte Z77X-UD5H F14 BIOS
ASUS GTX 460 768MB @ 800/1950
Kingston HyperX DDR3 8GB @ DDR-1333
Corsair AX750
Crucial M4 128GB
Western Digital Black 1TB
Cooler Master Hyper 212+ EVO
BenQ E2420HD

hopefully it is figured out, Yeah I am folding on both my 260's and my 9800's but I won't be able to keep them both up 24/7
