    they were actually game benchmarks. Like rainbow six and tomb raider. I was able to reach at between 1950 and 1911's with overclock core clock via afterburner by increasing +95. But what i don't really understand is the temperature. Anyone has tried Apex legends yet? At max settings 4gb textures selected my gpu goes like 91 degrees.

    Edit: Forgot to mention i have already repasted both cpu and gpu with ic diamond.

    At what voltage did you set the overclock? Since you have a Pascal gpu you should only be able to raise the clock in the curve editor (ctrl + f when Afterburner is in foreground).

    What Houzo pointed out is a different problem an not related to yours. I would even say you have no problem since the clocks are fine for a normal setup. Not all chips can get that high, with mine i didnt even try to go over 1900 because the power consumption raises drastically and the fans go nuts.

    @Houzo I also bought the fan control software and i ran into the same 12xx mhz bug you described The funny thing is that it still performs too good to be on such a low clock and shows 0,65v in gpu-z. Disabling that dll made the clocks look real again and when i change my undervolt profiles it also shows 0,8v like i made the profile but the clock is stuck at a certain value.

    Can you tell me which version of CC you were using since i experienced a lot of bsods lately (when having fan control and CC active at the same time or when using CC and led keyboard) and im not sure where the problem is. One was the newest nvidia driver.. :(

    When using led keyboard the transitions look very slow and stuttered like if the ec functionality is being emulated an not compatible. I think this is leading to some i/o blocking that is causing crashes. Anyone having some more experience with this here ?

    Didn't repaste GPU but I don't get over 70 degrees GPU temp in Apex. Settings all max, 6gb texture streaming budget. 60-70fps, around 1950mhz with overclock.
    I use fan control by obsidian and set a custom fan profile. Without that my temps are higher but never go above 78 degrees. Maybe your repasting didn't go so well? Too much paste maybe?

    Have you selected performance mode in clevo control center?

    Also, with clevo control center the fans don't go above 80%. You can force them to max speed with fn+1 but using a third party fan control is more comfortable. It reduced my temps to 70 degrees with acceptable noise with my custom settings because the fans will use over 80%.

    You could test if you still get 90 degrees when using fn+1

    I certainly am able to overclock without using the curve. I have +140mhz core clock and +120mhz memory clock running stable at 70 degrees max. It starts at 2025mhz below 50 degrees and drops to 1935 at 70 degrees. Without the overclock it peaks at 1798mhz at 70 degrees so afterburner works without using curve editor for me.

    When I have the GPU clock bug in the Witcher 3, fps drop from 50-60 to 30-40 so I certainly have a big performance loss.
    I'm using latest cc that you can find on the clevo driver homepage.

    I also had some bluescreens but I think it was related to unstable overclocking and I also have the feeling that the system runs more stable when nvgpu dll is enabled.
    I just disable it manually when playing the Witcher since that's the only game that causes the clock issue for me. For everything else I have it enabled.
    With what program/game did you experience the clock bug?

    I tried a couple of games and benchmarks, every time the same. I can even see it happening on the fly when running CC only and starting a 3D stresstest. As soon as i start up the fan control the clock gets bugged after a few secs and stays there until restart.

    As far as i remember i could still control the gpu fan even though CC and fancontrol were running. I only needed to disable the dll because of the clock bug. But i will test this again to confirm.

    Hmm seems like a new feature, when i started using afterburner with my 1080ti i could only use the curve (at least thats what i remember).

    I really wonder at what gpu fan percentage you run at clocking so high. With my setting im hitting 70 too but the fan is usually around 30-40% on load. But i usually play in energy save mode so only 2.7ghz max on cpu

    Strange, I only have clock issues with the enabled dll in The Witcher 3.
    My fan runs at 85-90% and I'm in performance mode. I don't mind the fans being a little louder since I play with my headset on most of the time.
    It is not louder than my girlfriend's dell G3 with 1050.
    If you're using only 40% that'd probably be too loud for you :)
    But 70 degrees at 40% fans under load is pretty impressive.
    I set up a custom silent fan profile for when I'm just surfing the web and doing light stuff where the fans are practically not noticeable. But when gaming or something other demanding stuff I prefer as much performance as I can get.

    My CPU is mostly @ 3,8 GHz under load.
    Does you GPU work with 99-100% load under energy save mode? The Nvidia driver sometimes caps fps at 30 in energy save mode and the GPU does not max out to reach that.

    I think its full on all the time, for me it was the same until i realized it never goes below since i didnt have a power plan.

    To clarify with energy mode i mean power save mode of the cpu not some setting inside CC. But when i used the CC i always used the silent preset, whatever this does.

    It is possible to not let the Cpu use its boost and clock down to around 800mhz, for most modern games this is enough. Hl2 engine is lagging alot though and needs always full on :( You have to make a "energy save" power profile and set the maximum processor speed to 99%

    I also highly recommend deliding your cpu, this made things alot quieter for me. Since i think you are living in germany i could help you out on that (still have the delid mate 2).

    Yes it does. Games that are gpu intensive usually run on the same fps than before (e.g. Re 2 Remake). You can even run older crysis titles without any problem. Its really hard to find games that really use all of you cpu power.

    I didnt face this issue ever. I can even run botw in cemu with energy save mode at around 40 fps but thats more limited on the graphics clock. Hl2 engine runs worse because idk valve oO :) Source 2 should be fine but since there is no fps you can play with it there is no way to tell

    I think you dont really need that if you delid and use energy save mode. Heres a shot of my settings, the cpu one is too agressive and the gpu a bit too silent for 99% load but its showing how low you can go with fan speeds.

    I would really like to replace the fans since they seem not to be optimized and make a whistling noise beginning around 30% fan speed.
    The Asus laptop i had before just had 1 fan for 1050ti and 7300hq but the fan didnt have such an annoying sound.

    Anyone ever done this? And i want to repaste the gpu but havent started opening the whole thing. Is there a guide or video for this?

    i cant see any of these only core clock and mem clock are manageable on my afterburner. Now ill try curve that you are saying.

    Since that im not able to buy that fan software im going to try rlecviewer again.It gave me bsods before but i dont know maybe this time. I also wanted to uninstall CC and use that obsidian keyboard led soft with rlecviewer but keyboard leds didnt worked.And maybe you are right i might be repasted wrong or too much.

    Yep there it is: Rlecviewer works fine but obsidian keyboard led software without CC wont work.Leds are not even enabled.

    Hi! I was wondering if any of you are using the obsidian updater. Does it work with N950TP6, because I don't find it as a model in the drop down menu. For the fan cantrol app you don't need the model. And if you are using it do I have to uninstall the Controll Center that I have from XMG or can I leave it installed and not let it start on startup?
