    Hello,
    i have geforce 780
    model: GV-N780D5-3GD-B
    I overclock it to 1150mhz and after temperature reaching 79C+ core clock gets throttled to 1136, althought gpu can run up to 95C.
    Is there some workaround.
    It is increadibly annoying to run gpu fan at 100%, or to be forced to get expensive water cooling.
    1136 is not even much, this model can run 1200mhz on average.
    Thanks for answer.

    Replace thermal paste.

    Btw only custom bios can disable thermal throttling.

    A minor dip to 1136Mhz isn't thermal throttling.. if it completely drops out of boost clocks down to your base clocks ~863Mhz or lower then your actually throttling.

    It is thermal throttling.

    Any cards kepler and above drop boost bins on certain temperature steps.
    Pascal starts throttling at only 35c. Kepler's first bin drop should be about 62c~

    OP is hitting 80c, that will be at least 3/4 bin drops.
    AKA throttling.

    A few Mhz isn't going to make any significant difference in fps.. actual thermal throttling drops your voltage and clockspeed massively. What your describing it just the regular Boost Clocks behavior.. it isn't even dropping below the advertised boost clocks of 900Mhz. If he was throttling down below 900Mhz then I'd call that throttling. The entire nature of Boost Clocks they are dynamic and will change with GPU load and also temps.

    When I had my fans die on my 780Ti it very quickly ramped up to over 90C and dropped my clocks down to around ~600Mhz.

    It's still a form of thermal throttling.

    Throttling's definition is any form of reduction in clock cycles, obviously with the thermal being an adjective of that means throttling caused by temperature increases.
    Yes it's a function of boost, but it's still throttling technically.
