Re: GTX 260/280 Clock Throttling While in 3D Apps. An Explanation.

I monitor the clocks and while it sometimes detects 3D mode while browsing, I've never seen it do the wrong thing wrt not being in OC mode while gaming. So, I think its a great idea that the 200s do this out of the box, but.... that assumes they are doing it right. I've not, played Wow or some of the other games that people are reporting problems with.
