    My temps and under full load during testing don't exceed 60 celcius so why would the gpu downclock? In fact, the temps rarely exceed 55 degrees celcius. Is there a way to fix this so it doesn't?

    Anything else that I'm missing?

    The boost clock curve becomes quite steep after 30c. That's just how GPU Boost 3.0 works. Don't think of it as downclocking and more of adapting to the conditions. Sometimes by increasing the voltage slider you're hindering max potential boost clocks due to bouncing off the TDP limit.

    You can play with the frequency at the set voltage points manually as per the guide to see if you're able to hit higher frequencies with less voltage.

    I'll try that...I'll try 120 power limit and I won't touch the voltage slider and I'll start there and then increase voltage % by 10's or should I go by higher increments?

    Leave it at default for the time being.

    Using lower voltage = lower scores in valley/heaven and more downclock on the core clock. I kept going up and noticed that up to 90% on the voltage slider = increase in score and core clock. At 100% voltage slider, no difference...so I guess my sweet spot is 90% voltage slider?

    Just wish I could hit 2000mhz...oh well...

    Would decreasing mem clock help increase core clock? I have mem at +400 atm...

    400+ offset is around the sweet spot for most cards on the memory side, but gains are limited.

    If you're not able to hit 2Ghz by increasing the offset slider, then as per my post above, you will need to manually adjust the voltage curve and frequency points in GPU Tweak or the utility of your choosing.

    For instance, say the card isn't stable at 2Ghz at 1.062v, it may possibly be stable at 1.050 at that frequency. Not all cards are capable of the same speeds so you may just have to live with the silicon lottery.

    I have no idea how to manually adjust voltage and frequency points in GPU tweak. I'm using MSI afterburner and the 100% slider gives me only a 0.02 increase in voltage...going from 1.062 to a whopping 1.082 although I've seen it as high as 1.093 I believe.

    I hope I have these values right because I'm not at home to check.

    I would love to increase the voltage above 1.1, just no idea what you're suggesting since my slider is already at the 100%?

    Thank you for your help.

    Have amended my post as I typed the example voltages incorrectly, although they were just example voltages, every GPU is different.

    You can access the voltage curve in AB by double-clicking on the bar graph which is situated to the left of the core frequency slider. You may not find any stabiltiy improvement at lower voltage points, but you need to try to find out.

    Or alternatively, be happy with the frequency you've achieved and use the card. Further gains will be negligible.

    Fair point on further gains being negligible.

    I'll try as you suggested later and report my findings.

    Thanks for your help.

    Wait...aren't pascal cards voltage capped at 1.093v? Meaning that doing a manual adjustment to the curve won't do anything?

    I've seen my card hit the 1.093v as it needs to.
