always full clock rates with external screen?


Recommended Posts

Hi, i have noticed that, if i plug in an external monitor on my Zepto 6224W

with 8600M-GT, the card does not reduce the clock rates of memory, gpu, etc.

it always runs at full speed (475/950/400) - is this a normal behaviour?

If i switch back to the internal LCD-Display the clock rates reduce to standard 2D settings

with 196/338/100.

This is very annoying, since the fan is always spinning because the card gets too hot :-/

I am using GeForce 177.41 drivers

I always run external and have adjusted my settings for single screen only. My Quadro 1600M(=8700M GT) clocks down nicely but if I force it to full speed for example with disabling PowerMizer, I always can easily drop the clocks into about half speed with Nvidia Control Panel+NTune.

Well, i don`t have powermizer enabled, because i am runing vista x64 and 177.41 drivers.

But also in winXP it doesnt work - powermizer enabled ...

is this a notebook issue or a driver issue?

mhhh... i found a temporary way to "solve" this issue:

Download and install nTune and turn down both memory and clock rates

in the Nvidia Control Panel - Works for me, better than rivatuner - but it is annoying too ^^
