Gtx 260 power saving troubles

Recommended Posts

Ok, i hate power saving options, 100% hate them, i dont care about reducing my clock speeds while im idle etc etc

 

I have every power saving function i can find disabled (in both windows and bios), however, my gtx 260+ is limiting its clock speeds when not in a 3D game

 

For the life of me i cannot find the power saving function that is limiting my Graphics card

 

Any ideas?

 

Thanx,

Love

setting your clocks in rivatuner will prevent them from dropping in 2D mode.

 

For some reason even with forced settings in rivatuner it still dropped

 

I resolved the issue however, its a palit gtx 260+ sonic edition, I downloaded the latest drivers straight from nvidia when i first installed the card

 

I uninstalled them and installed drivers from the CD and the Cd came with a program for overclocking, it had 2 seperate clocks set for 2d and 3d, i just set them to the same thing and no more down clocking :)

i never heard of anyone or anything to uses the full power of even a 8600 in 2dmode, why on earth would you want a GTX 260 running at full speed for no reason other than to create heat.

My 8600GT runs 630/1386/567 (x2 and yes its GDDR2, thats why its running so low) 24/7. Does it even have the power saving feature? Its 43W max @ stock, so im probably using like ~60W...
