Hello this is my first Nvidia card ever its a GTX460 Superclock and im using it with windows 7 64bits.
All settings are default exept i turned on vsync and triple buffer cause i need em but now when i play a game or when i run 3DMark i get s suddent stop in the game that last like 1second on 3dMark and on games from 4 to 25 seconds and the game continues but later it does it again.I have only tried to set the Maximun Pre-redered frames to 0 but its still happening.What can it be?
I'd say download the newest nvidia beta draiver; currently version 260.89 which just came out and do a clean install, which it now gives as an option during driver installation, though I forgot the exact term they use for it. As it is superclocked it could be a temp issue. I personally set my fan profiles manually with the device settings section (in the device rules box). Most fans are set to be quiet rather than to be good coolers. For stability sake you can make your own cooling curve for the fan that will allow it to run much cooler in general than the default settings. In general just set it to get to 100% fan speed by 70 Celsius to avoid potential overheating issues that may cause the GPU to downclock itself for a while to protect itself.
I can't guarantee that's even the problem, but it definitely doesn't hurt to do if you can take the extra fan noise.
Oh, and as far as I can tell this game vsyncs automatically, so don't mess with that setting. Also due to the sheer amount of vram this game takes, I don't recommend forcing triple buffering unless you have a card with 1.5-2GB vram.
