Should I be concerned? GPU

DVA
 Share

Hey guys, so I own an EVGA SC2 1080ti. I've never tried overclocking until..well just a few minutes ago. Now the card runs great and everything. I don't have any stuttering in the titles I play, I don't see high temps on GPU-Z or OpenHardWare. 

 

Information - The card was used and yes it was used for mining. After looking at the topic, do I need to RMA the card or is this something that is nothing to cause concern?

 

 

 

So upon launching MSI Afterburner, it reads the advertised clocks of 1556Mhz with a memory speed of 5616. See image below.

After the program has been open for 10 seconds or so, it drops down to 607Mhz with a memory of 405Mhz. Sometimes the clock will dip into the 200's...

So is this something that I should be concerned about? Does the card need to be RMA'd?

If your GPU is not being used, it goes into a power saving state and clocks down to low core/mem clock speeds. If you're worried, your CPU does the same thing when it's at idle.

Thanks. I guess my concern comes mostly from watching overclocking guides and their number is static, doesn't change a bit until they alter the settings

So as I'm watching these overclocking guides..their clock stays constant until they change the settings. Is there something I'm missing that they're having a constant clock showing?

there's a full power mode option (not sure the exact words) in afterburner that'll keep the card at max boost, it's inside the settings menu

They probably lock the card in a high performance power state (you can do this in NVIDIA control panel and overclocking utilities).

Ah, ok. Something simple that no guide mentioned. I figured my card was fine due to its great performance. Better safe than sorry though, thanks for the help and easing my thoughts.

Being a beginner overclocking definitely showed with this thread lol. Thank you for the responses :)

No worries the card powered down to conserve power since it has nothing heavy to do handle, that's a good thing it helps with your ele bill. Don't worry about the power down
