6800gt problem

Right now my 6800gt always runs at 3d mode of 350/1000. I tried to set the 2d mode to 250/1000 so it would run cooler but it does the opposite. Second i click apply the temp keeps climbing. Iv tried restarting with the changes but no difference. Any help?

Do not underclock the 2D clock. When it runs in 2D mode it uses a power management system that keeps it cool. By forceing a clock speed, you disable the power management. Hence you are putting more stress on the GPU.

There is absolutely nothing wrong with idleing it in 2D mode at 50-60C. That is completely fine, and will do no harm at all.

3D load temps of up to 100C are also safe. Notice that the things only start to thermal throttle at 120C? Thats because they are happy with high temps.

ok thanks for the reply dsio, only reason i did it was because on my old gf5600 my 2d was clocked lower then my 3d, i figured the 6800gt should work the same.
