My HD 7870 underclocked itself ?!

So,I was playing League of Legends yesterday,and my FPS was horrible ( 30 - 50 ) ,so I thought that my GPU was overheating.I opened up MSI Afterburner to increase the RPM of the GPU fan,but then I saw that my GPU underclocked itself.


Should I just OC it back to the factory defaults or what ?
