    In my experience,to fix the throttling problems,I removed the psu center pin (pa-7e 210w) and I use my laptop without the battery.:thumbsup:
    If I leave the battery inserted, the gpu clocks remain 2d.

    Pin removal used in conjunction with a quick toggling of stealth on then off again once booted sorts 3D clocks for gaming. 100% consistent This is a method I painstakingly worked out and it has been tested out by others. .

    I never ever ever get throttling with centre pin removed and with battery in if I do a quick stealth mode toggle :)

    Use a small pair of pliers and yank it out. Make sure it is unplugged first of course.

    The pliers have to be small enough to get inside the tip without damaging anything.

    On another note I just downclocked back to stock clocks (haven't had time to sort out cooling mod yet) and Crysis 2 managed to use up to 2014mb of vram! That is very nearly maximum!! On such an old game!

    :thumbsup:It 's very nice of you !Thanks a lot!! I' ll find some tools! It's hard to find a tool like that

    it's really quite strange that an old game would use that much vram ! But I think it' s a problem of Crysis 2, haha

    thanks again

    should i worry about the 2D/3D clock issue?
    :)

    Even if I do a quick stealth mode toggle.I don't know why.:confused:

    I struggled to yank it out at first too but I found bending it a bit and effectively snapping it off worked well.
