Default Re: why did my score get worse after overclock

if you don't want the effects of down throttling on a 5900 flashed to a 5950u, then flash it with a ASUS5950u bios. The ASUS always runs in 3D, and has no throttling mode. Also fan is at full speed all time, and therefore helps much better with cooling. But will be a bit noisier.

when overclocking your existing 59xx setup, especially using rivatuner, you must reboot after setting the overclocked speeds, as rivatuner does a stress test which prematurely triggers the throttling condition. Rebooting resets this triggered condition.
