    [SOLVED] Unstable GPU usage

    I seem to be having very unstable GPU usage when playing any games. The GPU usage would be at 90-100%, then after a second or two, the usage goes back down to 0%.

The odd thing about this is that unstable overclocks always hard-freeze my whole PC, instead of BSODing...
