Thank you! I'm thinking that it might be that my 12V rails don't give enough power. There are three, so I'm going to try to switch them around. Perhaps there is one cable that delivers some more power.

I'll see what I can do. In the meantime you can add this as an answer, as it does appear to be a problem with the power supply.

I am testing some more at the moment. I found an ATI setting that allows your card to use more power. BOINC can run at 850MHz before the core clocks starts fluctuating now. Guild Wars is able to use the stock speeds without problem now. And unfortunately, I don't have an inline wattage calculator.

According to online PSU calculators, I should need about 350W with all components under full load. So even with a good margin of error, 550W should enough. Tried running at 800MHz, and it's running consistently now.

Intel i5 3570K and 16GB RAM @ 1800MHz. The BOINC projects run purely on GPU and VRAM. So I don't see how my other hardware could be a problem for BOINC.

There are times where I do need the extra performance. Large group fights in certain games, where my FPS will drop below 20fps for example. Also for BOINC, I run some GPU projects on there. Besides, I'm not using VSYNC or any other FPS-limiting technology, so there's no reason for my GPU to limit its clock.

It only boosts for the first few seconds and then won't go boost anymore. I intend to overclock this card, and you can only modify the boost frequency. With the current issue an overclock won't be used.

comment How much RAM will Windows 7 consume or reserve for cache if I install 16 GB of RAM?
What will make a difference with that much RAM, is the RAMDisk you could install. memory.dataram.com/products-and-services/software/ramdisk . You can then put your TEMP folders and cache folders on there, which will make a large difference. RAM can easily read and write at 2GB/sec.

comment Why does “//” instead of http or https before the actual link work?
I think that nowadays they will even try https:// first.

comment Exit stand-by only when power button is pressed
Aha, thank you! I also found the same setting on my keyboard, and they both work.
