    Question Memory clock half of what it’s meant to be?

    I have an Aorus GTX 1060 6gb, overclocked to 2100Mhz but when I check MSI afterburner during loads it says the memory clock is 4151mhz, this is with a +150 boost on afterburner. On the gigabyte website it is said that this card does 9026mhz memory clock. Is my memory half the speed it should be?

    I need some help to determine in MSI dragon center has been thoroughly removed from my custom PC.

    [SOLVED] Undervolting 1080 Ti is hot at Idle??

    Hi, I’ve been getting into undervolting recently and I found it super beneficial with my 1080 Ti Aorus, non-extreme as I like my PC quiet and run my fans on low RPM, due to this the GPU can sometimes hit 80°+ underneath max load. Undervolting made a world of difference as my card is now...

    Question RX 560 won't go above 1080 Mhz....core clock

    I've bought a used rx 560 4GB edition. The sticker on card says 560D but it shows 1024 stream cores in GPU-Z. But the problem is that it won't go a SINGLE step above 1080 MHz. In After Burner, the slider can go upto 1405 Mhz but nothing actually happens. It still remains the same. I am using...

    Question 2060 thinks its overheating

    I had a single fan 2060 but the thermals were too hot so I decided to get a small and compact 2 fanner from Zotoac. I don't know if this was a mistake but whatever bullshit software they put into this card makes it think anything above 70c is overheating so I get frame drops in easy-ass games...
