Windows 7: Serious help needed with downclocking

Serious help needed with downclocking

Hello, everyone.

And yes, I am still alive (though life has not been all that great in the past year), and I was really hoping some of you lovely people could help me out with a problem that's starting to frustrate me beyond my patience and sanity.


So, I have an MSI (nVidia) GT650 Ti BOOST graphics card, which has been factory overclocked. The problem with this is that I get constant driver crashes and/or game crashes when playing certain games. Just Cause 2 and Torchlight 2 crash almost every 10-15 minutes, and Garry's Mod crashes my drivers.

I've tried using multiple driver versions, going as far back as I possibly could without downloading them off of some shady websites, doing a clean install every time of course (I used the built-in option to remove all custom profiles before installing drivers or whatever) - and no changes.

I've thoroughly cleaned my GPU as well, took it off the mobo and everything - and no changes. I actually rolled back from Windows 10 back to 7 because of this issue, thinking it was due to 10 being just a 90% crap OS with tons of **** I never use; and for a while it looked fine, but in the past couple days it started all over again; especially GMod. That game is so weird, sometimes my drivers crash within 15 minutes of starting it up, sometimes I can play for hours before I experience a crash.


So I want to know how to downclock my GPU to the regular 650 (or 650 Ti) settings, if that's even possible - and make them permanent.

Hi and welcome back
Heck you can use msi afterburner to set it what ever you want up/ down...
I've been using it for a few weeks and it's good not to down clock though

I already thought about using Afterburner, but the thing is - I would have no idea how!

Hi,
There are tutorials on how to use it
Of course under clocking you would have to do the opposite
About the only way to increase or decrease a gpu's clocks....
Leave the Power limit alone and lower the core & memory clock speeds
I'd start with the core clock they both should start with +0
Just drag the slider to the left 1 tick at a time and test.

Afterburner did nothing for me.

I DID, however, download nVidia inspector... and I still have no idea what to do exactly. I've tried a couple of changes and I have no idea what I'm doing...

Hi,
Did you look at any tutorials for after burner ?
https://gaming.msi.com/features/afterburner

That image shows basically the same options after burner would
Base clock is core clock in AB
Lower it -10 you can do the same for Memory clock too
Power and temperature lower it to 90%
Apply and see if it makes any difference.

I doubt it's the clocks that are the problem,
NVIDIA Drivers - Avoid Problems

What security do you have installed ?

The Inspector not being able to read the clock speed indicates that something is wrong.
(Where it says '0 Mhz' it should already show your current speeds.)

Driver 337.88 that you are using is from 2014. You could try installing a newer driver to see if that fixes the clock speed readings.

Have you even talked to MSI about it yet ?

Looks like it's reading the default clocks to me :/

The fan is an interesting one though
It might actually be out of commission ?
