My 9800GTX+ clock speeds are off...

    I recently built a new PC, and Nvidia Monitor shows my 9800GTX bus speeds as:

    GPU core (3D): 300.000 MHz
    GPU memory: 100.000 MHz

    This is confusing to me because they seem lower than what the 9800 should have (a 738 MHz core clock is what it should be).

    However, my performance in-game is still quite good, so I'm assuming that the two cards ARE operating at their factory clock speeds - and that Nvidia is just monitoring them wrongly? Could the mistake be related at all to the SLI steup?

    Thanks for any help.

    Those are idle clocks...Try running Furmark or AtiTool stability test, and they will be 738 and... 1100? As well as they go up when you game. Whenever the card is not really in use, it goes down to save energy.
