    [SOLVED] Why does underclocking my GPU improve performance?

    While building a system from used parts, I installed a GTX 650 Ti BOOST, and the only way I could get games to run on it is if I underclocked the GPU. CPU is AMD Athlon II X2 250. When I start a game without underclocking the GPU, the game will crash without fail. If I overclock the GPU even...

    [SOLVED] EVGA 1080TI SC II artifacts crash, I've RMA'd 5 times now...

    Underclocking the memory usually gives me some time before artifacts and crash, but its absurd to expect to have to do such just to not have your time ruined. Even with the memory underclocked, I still end up with crashes later. Just more game time at best. I'm on my 5th 1080ti via RMA. My PSU...
