during periods of inactivity, the clocks will automatically underclock. that's the 2D mode, it saves power. seeing them underclocked while not doing anything is normal. GPU-Z doesn't report the current clocks, afterburner will. However during periods of activity, like furmark, it should clock up to 3D mode - or the clocks that you've set

if it's staying in 2D mode (underclocked) while running furmark, then why would it underclock i'm wondering.. is your driver crashing and going to the safe (2D) clocks?

perhaps try the latest (or otherwise, a different) driver for the card
