Went just a tad too far with the overclock, driver crashed and now I cant seem to get the power usage back to the full potential 100-107%

Did I mess this thing up or is there something corrupted preventing this thing from going full speed?

Did you reboot after the crash? Try reinstalling the driver? What are you doing that you expect full use? We only see any tiny picture of stats but have no kdea whats going on.....

isn't that program part of Furmark ?

Its a lightweight monitor app I came across.

Use is folding, before it was running at max power +11% and using all of it. temps reported 55-60C.

I used DisplayDriverUnistaller thats supposed to fully whack out old drivers. Using nvidias clean install didnt seem to work.

So far I seem to have recovered about ~90k of the 100k points dropped and using 85-90% of TDP. Almost but still a little left in it as it was before.

I was mostly interested in seeing how much difference an OC makes in folding power... maybe a cpl seconds off TPF but for 24/7 probably better to stay away for reliability.

It's GPU shark, Furmark has it in its main program window. I asked because if OP was using Furmark to check/stress test it would explain why he never sees the full boost value (I never did) outside of driver issues if it makes sense ?

Nah, I know better than to use Furmark anymore.

Status report, looks like everything is operating within spec now, I guess the power usage can be WU dependent
