Hi all
Im having a bit of bother with my GPU (1GB Gigabyte GTX 650 OC Edition), it usually runs at circa 320Mhz ramping up to 540Mhz then 1111Mhz (memory is the same), now it seems 'sometimes' the card will ramp up to full speed (1.11GHz) and will not come back down..? 
the only fix is to reboot the PC?
does anyone have any idea what might be the cause?
I do have the MSI overclocking utility installed which I was messing about with months ago (just raising clock & memory speed slightly), but its not running at all as I dont need it, no background services, if I reboot the clock speed will be ramped back down, until it is utilised and it stays up?
I have the latest drivers installed and power settings are on BALANCED and ive checked all the settings within it
here is GPU-Z when system is idle
My full system specs are: Windows 10x64 - Core-i5 3470 - 2x4GB Crucial RAM - Gigabyte H77M-D3H (rev1.0) Mobo - XFX Pro Core 450w PSU - 250GB Samsung 850 EVO SSD - 2Tb WD HDD
