    Dunno what happened, but recent drivers made my OC highly unstable. In games like Evolve, or Serious Sam Fusion, everything goes fine, until GPU usage spikes to 100% without reason and it gives "device hung" error. Both games were fine before with my OC. Is this a known bug or something?

    Off topic but, good lord, how do you even play that?

    On topic - well perhaps your components are getting "bad" due to previously too high overclock? Have you considered this? What temps are you running?

    By having fun, duh.
    The card is only few months old and temps are fine. In fact, Evolve barely stress the card.

    Considering all the controversy around it, highly doubtful.
    Define "fine". Secondly if you suggest same settings worked before, and issue started appear recently -have you made a barebones driver installation, with a DDU cleanup?

    Fine as in fans are doing their job. I did use DDU, but it didn't help.

    Try to use DDU, followed by a barebones installation approach.

    Just to mention that, later drivers changing overclocks has been here before, this is not the first time. Did you try to step down a single bin of your GPU? That usually helps, if you can't push in any more voltage.

    I had to go from +150 to +115. That's freaking huge step.

    Well that's something you didn't meantion ;)
    What's the voltage difference for that OC drop with your card? At what voltage could you reach +150 and +115 before?
    Can you install older drivers to see if the OC is still stable?

    Voltage is at +100% the whole time.

    I have had to redo my oc with driver changes before. Nothing new to me.

    Well, now it works fine again. I hope it will stay this way.

    Oddly enough I've noticed this myself. I had my 1080 at +200, reaching 2114 in every game. But ever since the 388.x I started dropping it down until i found a stable +160 which does around 2038-2050
    but even then in some cases games don't even boost the card normally even though gpu utilization is at max. Like NFS Payback and Battlefront 2. In older titles since my voltage is at +100 it goes up
    to 1.091v, but in newer titles it does 1.014v max and the core does 1876. Even if i change clocks in whilst watching them in real time in the game nothing changes. GTA 5 started crashing everytime
    the core goes pass 2050 for some reason. But the card is stable as hell. I can do almost 2.2Ghz at synthetic benchmarks, temps are fine, around 75c at 2.1ghz but still, voltage spikes around and thats
    what i think makes everything unstable. Older drivers didn't do this though.

    Damn, it crashed again. I lowered voltage increase by 10% and so far it is stable.
