Hello, I have a GTX 460 which is overclocked to 835MHz and 2100 Mem clock and it runs perfectly for a while and running under ideal temps (around 70ish degrees celcius) and then suddenly midgame (example - rocketleague or csgo) goes straight down to 405MHz and is stuck there unless I disable and reenable my graphics card from device manager or restart my computer alltogether. Now, I have tried some methods, such as using DDU to fully reinstall my drivers and increasing voltage, but none worked. I also made sure that my PSU is not the problem as I had just bought it brand new and it is a corsair 550W which makes me speculate that the PSU isnt the problem. I have also tried putting my preferred option to maximum performance in the NVIDIA settings.

My CPU is a Q6600 overclocked to 2.7ghz

Please help, after endless searching on google and not finding a fix, I've come to make an account here and start this thread to help myself and others who are facing the same problem. I shall gladly answer any questions in order to fix this problem. Thank you.

Like I said, normally the max temps my GPU reaches during these games are around 70ish celcius and 80 at max. I dont think that would dethrottle my GPU. So I dont really believe that temps are the reason why my GPU is dehtrottling
