Windows 7: Serious help needed with downclocking

Nope, I can hear it when it speeds up while playing more intensive games.

Also, I tried lowering the clock speeds bit by bit, and still nothing. When I finally got pissed and turned the sliders ALL THE WAY to the left - I still had the same problem. Gmod keeps crashing.

I also tried clean installing my drivers; I avoided installing anything 3D, I also did not install the HD Audio drivers - JUSt the GPU ones. and I've deleted my nVidia folder and stuff and all that; still nothing.

EDIT: Should I just try doing a BIOS update, cause AFAIK it's out of date.

What are your temperatures like ?
Like I said I doubt it's the clocks restore defaults with after burner.

Took this screenshot right after playing COD4 for about 4-5 hours. Without any glitches or crashes, I might add.

Will try the Temp File Cleaner and report back...

Pretty even temp reading
I'd just make sure all the games are on default settings along with the gpu
I didn't see anything on the minimum psu on the card
But I'm sure on a 2gb card some concessions have to be made :/

Also noticed you're on an older driver.

To be Honest the Card might actually be struggling

You can contact the vendor for a RMA but honestly i would think it's time for a newer GPU

A lot of the current games right now would struggle really bad with a 650ti even being optimized so if i were you would start researching on your particular GPU a lot of factors in the mix to be honest but one of them for sure the card could be using higher settings than it can handle i would look into that first then go from there

Try lowering some of the game play settings especially games with Hairworks that ish kills even Bigboy cards

Yep COD4 I have it too and like it but it's not all that a demanding game compared to newer games

I'm trying to figure out a better way to install cod4 without using the dvd every time = burners fail and can damage dvd's :/

Use steam, you will never need the DVD again

I installed older drivers thinking it might help, as I was looking through the web before to try and figure out what's going on. Old drivers didn't help. Default settings don't help.

I was able to play Black Ops 3 @30FPS with apsolutely no problems, but games like Torchlight (which I know don't support factory overclocked GPUs) and, most annoyingly, Garry's Mod, crashes my drivers all the time, no matter what I try. The card has no problems with 99% of other games I play...

I really don't want to have to spit out money for a newer GPU

BTW Temp Cleaner did nothing. As for security, I use my own brain as top security - in case that fails, BitDefender free.

EDIT: So I uninstalled BitDefender free, installed Avast Free... and have not experienced a single crash since. And I've been playing Gmod for at least a few hours now. Absolutely weird. I'm hoping that it was some extremely weird conflict with BD and whatever, but I wouldn't be surprised if this continued, at least for Gmod.

EDIT2: Nevermind, Gmod still crashes. I'll just leave this, it's hopeless...
