Get GPU-Z going, Sensor tab, you should see your clocks.

Goto Control Panel ---- System ----- Advanced System Settings ---- Performance ------ Settings --- Choose adjust for best Appearance ---- then choose Custom(all options will be checked) ------- now Uncheck the first option: Animate controls and elements while in windows ----- watch your gpu-z and see if after 10 seconds it downclocks to 50hz Core, and 68 memory.
