    GTX285... not uplocking?

    Sometimes, when playing a game(any game, really), the screen goes dark for a couple of seconds. After it goes back to normal, there is a pretty sharp drop in FPS. The reason for this? The GPU starts to run at 2D clock speeds. The only fix I found is to restart the PC. I'm running Windows 7...

    My 920 i7 keeps reverting to 142 clock speed.

    I have my 920 set to 150x20, but after a shut down it seems to always revert to 142x20. It still says 150x20 in BIOS though. Another interesting thing I noticed is that Computer Information and dxdiag always seem to say that my CPU runs at ~2.80GHz, no matter what speeds I set. My Mobo is...

    Vista Ultimate 32-bit and GTX285

    Here's the deal: I've got 2x2GB DDRIII RAM and a GTX285. My System Information says that I've got 3.25GB RAM. Why not only 3.00GB? Isn't it 4GB - 1GB(VRam)? Or am I missing something here? EDIT: I tried running dxdiag and it says that I have 3326MB of RAM. What the hell's going on?

    180.48 drivers and increased heat.

    Going from 178.24 to 180.48 increased my idle and load temps by around 7C. My card is 8800GTS 512MB. Anyone else with the same problem?

    Left 4 Dead and CPU usage.

    My E6600 is clocked at 3.3Ghz and the usage is being reported as 100% during gameplay, and indeed I can feel some slow downs at times. I am playing at 1280x1024. Is this normal? Is that game really such a huge CPU hog? Your experiences?

    Can't control fan speed with 180.43 8800gts 512

    RivaTuner lost the fan control tab and nTune's fan control is grayed out saying N/A. What the hell is going on? EDIT: Didn't improve FC2 performance for shit either. Time to rollback to 178.24.

    What would generally get more FPS...?

    A 8800GTS 512 @ 700/1700/2000 at 1280x1024, 16xAF/4xAA in games like SupCom, COD4, Crysis, Clear Sky, WoW, etc. on high settings. OR: a 260GTX at 1600x1200, 16xAF/4xAA in the aforementioned games(also on high)?

    8800GTS 512 artifacts and locks up in UT3.

    So I've got this problem. I recently got UT3 and it locks up with red/blue artifacts all over the screen after about 5-15minutes of gameplay. I've tried other games like SupCom FA, HL2, C&C3, HoMM5, WoW and I can play for hours and it doesn't lock up. I am running it on stock speeds and it's...

    E6600 bottlenecking 8800gts 512mb?

    Hello everyone, I've just got my 8800gts 512mb and noticed that it's not performing that much better than my previous card. I decided to try overclocking the card, but I didn't get any decent results. So I overclocked my E6600 to 3.0Ghz just for the hell of it, and noticed a significant...
