So, I have the ASUS GTX670-DCII and when I try to move the GPU Boost Clock (MHz) slider, it always returns to zero. What can I do about it?

Hi,

My first guess would be that the action isn't allowed or supported - much like clicking on a grayed out button.

Keep us posted

That would be my guess as well. Does the readme have anything to say about this?

Hi, have you tried using a different overclocking software like MSI Afterburner? I personally have used Asus GPU Tweak for my AMD GPU but it isn't that great and can be buggy at times whereas Afterburner does a superb job and has finer controls.

It worked before, but it stopped recently, I'll reinstall the GPU Tweak and see if it fixes the problem.

would evga precision x be another option? it works on a variety of cards. i use it to manually tweak fan speed, but it might also be effective to tweak hertz and the like.

Hooray and enjoy overclocking your 670! :)

One question, is it just my graphic card, or you actually can't overclock it to the max? When i move the slider to the max in Afterburner, and run 3DMark, it just crashes.

You cannot simply just move the slider to the max because most likely it cannot handle or be stable at that max overclock. The point of overclocking is to slowly increase it till you find the maximum overclock your GPU can be stable at.
