Default OC not stable?

Weird thing,my OC has been stable in every game ,(even crysis 3 and 2) for a year and this week,i had two clock resets,in portal 2 and Dishonored,basically,not demanding games...

This is what happened,i was playing, then a black screen for one second and game back to normal,but when i press alt tab,i can see that afterburner disabled the overclock,the card is only 60c... Any ideas?

Try it with another more demanding game? Power supply still strong?

nope,100% stable in MSI kombustor with extreme burning mode enabled,also crysis 3,tested for 45 mins only tho...

After all you may be right,can be the new nvidia driver for bioshock that resets the stock clocks sometimes,maybe it's very rare...But i don't think so,it just happened again in dishonored...

Some people say their OC is stable in every game exept one or 2...

Might be. Just run those two games with an older driver and see.

I'd have to believe it's the driver. AMD went through this a while ago.
