gtx 970m issues

Recommended Posts

hello all! 
I was wondering if anyone could give me some insight to a problem I'm having

I have a alienware m15x with a gtx 970m in it. dell model.

I updated the bios with svl7s bios mod to unlock it. 

I am using nvidia inspector for OC'ing. 
using a 240 watt dell powerbrick as well. 


when I OC the card. it will boost to the oc clocks I put down but as soon as the card hits anything above 95% usage the core clock drops and nvidia inspector shows it switching from P0 to p1 until the utilization drops to 90% or below. 


Can anyone give me some info as to why this is happening. it's not overheating. I'm sitting at around 75c 


am I doing something wrong or is this supposed to happen ?
