So i cant overclock the core, i can oc only my memory. And also, i noticed that it doesnt downclock when not used, its just forced to run at full speed. And its heater than normal.

Does your posted image indicate you haven't increased voltage or power limit at all?

 

That card is designed for low power consumption (19W), so I think it's likely you won't get any core overclocking without enabling higher power consumption.

 

Someone here:

reports with maximum setting for voltage and power limit, they could get stable +200MHz

He didnt increase the voltage either, And i got 300+ mhz before and now its locked in same clock speeds and generating heat for no reason.

Ah, I think I got that mixed up with another thread mentioning power limit.

 

So you were able to get that overclocking previously at default volts and without increasing power limit? Can you attach any system change to when this started happening? Driver updates...?

With the meager info here, I think the fault is the MOBO has locked the BIOS settings to default and the unit is still running hotter than normal, even after returning to the "normal" settings.  This is one of many faults that can happen when overclocking.  It not only boosts speed to the desired devices, but generates a lot of extra heat, in the devices and any peripheral chips that are involved.  This can push them beyond specs and damage the chip to the extent it runs hotter, even when at rated speeds.

No, no noticable system changes were made. But why it didnt locked down memory clock? And also, it doesnt downclock the memory either. Kind strange, but can i ever "unlock" the chip?
