underclocking 5770
 
hello, im having some trouble with my graphics card, i overclocked it using msi afterburner but now when im not using it ( listening to music or using internet) it will stay overclocked. this is a problem becuase i have a small room and it warms up very fast. so i was wondering is if there is anyway to make it automatically under clock itself like it does when its not overclocked. i tried setting up another profile in afterburner but it just resets the values on both profiles.

get rbe and work the bios yourself? :)

Are you using multiple displays? My ATI cards typically never downclock because of that.

Why not just make an underclocked OC profile in afterburner and set it up with a hotkey? If i remember correctly, a 5770s default idle speed can be as low as 300mhz core and 1000mhz memory and remain stable. Try that?

i dunno for some reason whenever i set the second profile to a lower speed it would make both profiles reset. but i figured it out, if u set the second profile to make it run at stock speeds it will down clock itself like normal.
