View Full Version : Enabling OC option in forceware without moving sliders rises GPU temp?

Hey, I was not sure whether it was related to Coolbits 2, so I decided to post it here. I got 6800gt running 6176 with Coolbits 2 enabled. WHen I go to overclocking panel and just enable it without moving any sliders, i.e. keeping all clocks at default, the core temp rises by 1-2c. Does anyone has any idea why is it happening? I simply select "manual overclocking" and temp changes almost instantenously. THis is really strange because I do not modify the clock values at all!

It could be for many numerous reasons. Such as the card forcing a different clock frequencies or loading more to hold the clock frequencies. I doubt that it hurtsing our card though.
