    Anytime I overclock this PNY 1060 it throttles back after a min or two while gaming. I thought it may be a heat issue but after investigating it I found it would start to downclock at around 62c with a very small over clock. Often down to 1100 on the GPU. Memory speed never changed. At stock speeds it never throttles down that I can see. At stock it stays above 1800 (boost speed) for the GPU. I upped the power/temp limit to the max with AB but still no luck.

    Could this be a voltage problem with the PSU or MB? I am not using the best of PSUs. It's an EVGA 100-BQ-0600-K1 BQ 80 plus 600w. With ryzen 5 1600. No heat issues with anything that I can see. CPU is not overclocked. Ram is clocked to 2933. system is stable. No crashes. Just GPU downclocking very low when I try to overclock it just a little or alot.

    Edit: Even tried to under power the card and see what would happen. Still the same.

    A specific game?

    They throttle when load is not high enough

    Going to try and get some screenshots. But for now im seeing it on Witcher 3. That is how I first noticed it. After an overclock the FPS would drop after a few minutes. Maybe a 10-15FPS drop. Remove the overclock and it was fine. Tested the Overclock/stock speed with Valley/superposition benchmarks and saw the same thing happening.

    Probably because it's unstable and display driver crashes causing reduced clock speeds

    Is the card new or used?
