Graphics Crad keeps underclocking

Hi!
My graphics card (Palit nVidia Geforce GT 440) keeps underclocking while playing games!

I have Thundermaster, which is a program that comes with Palit devices, and it says the Core clock of my GPU is 404Mhz, which is quite a lot less than the stock clock speed (780Mhz)

Thanks in advance!

What are your GPU temps while you are playing?

404mhz is your 2d clock speed. You will only see the speed of 780mhz when running 3d processes. For verification, install CPUz and look at the graphics tab. On the right side there is a drop down, select the different rendering states and the clock speeds shown should correlate to your current findings.

So i had an idea, to lock two of my three memory blocks, to run on 4GB not 12GB of ram, to keep temperatures down, and manually locking cores, so i do not use 3 cores all the time, to go web browsing and Skype, i could easily fit all that on one core, can i do any of that?

I have an Intel i5 750 CPU running on Gigabyte P55A-UD3R mainboard on my system. The weather is very hot here, I don't need much CPU speed these days and CPU fan was making too much noise. So I underclocked my CPU by decreasing its multiplier from 133 x 20 = 2.66 GHz to 133 x 9 = 1.20 GHz. ...
