Default GPU Downclocking With Dual Monitors

Hi,

As the description says I am having a problem where my GTX275 does not clock down to save power and lower temps when I have two monitors attached.

When I turn the second monitor off it works immedaitely and perfectly.

I am running the 191.07 drivers on Win7 x64, Is there anyway of getting it to downclock? Even to the low power 3D clocks.

When 2 monitors are attached it idles at 50c when only 1 attached its 40c, Thats a big difference.

Cheers.

I've had a little play with RivaTuner this morning and set a custom profile to clock it down to 400/800/600 and activated my second monitor.

It all works perfectly.

Just need a way of automatically activating my higher clocks now when I start a game.

Will post it in the RivaTuner forums and let you know to help others in the future.

this guide is excellent but i can get it to boot in the lower clocks and when a temp threshold is met get it to increase but it will not go back down.

anyway, should help some people

Nhancer has a single box to tick that disables all of the downclocking/power saving of the graphics card.
