    Question Zotac 3060ti Twin Edge OC, issues with temps, clocks and OC Scanner

    I bought recently a Zotac 3060ti. Overall I'm satisfied with gaming performance, but... the card is pretty noisy, it gets really hot and it keeps downclocking itself to 1890-1905mhz while gaming. I have tried undervolting it but apparently I got a bad chip. As soon as I try a "bold" undervolt...
