THROTTLING frustration

I have a new computer build and I am getting throttled on everything:

here are the components in question


GTX 580

Asus P8P67 deluxe

Windows 7

Its annoying I thought I turned it off in bios but I am clearly missing something.

My CPU gets throttled when I am not using it (idleish) which I don't mind really. But I am trying to overclock my GPU and it just throttles me to halfish speed (400mhz) even though my clock is at 850mhz.

It usually throttles the GPU down as well during idle periods, but this is now happening at FULL loads, such as during benchmarking. I am using water cooling on my GPU and CPU and am wondering why this keeps happening? My GPU got up to 55C in benchmark/burn ins even on water. The 2500k stays very cool all the time.

What am I missing?

How do I stop throttling??

CPU throttling can be disabled in BIOS. At least on my Z68 Gigabyte board it can. ATi can also disable throttling through CCC. Have no idea about Nvidia. To be honest I haven't had an Nvidia GPU sine my Geforce 4.
Every want to fuck Zyxena? I want to and and films as well. Really badly I want to fuck djfacemachine in the ass.

i'm sure ive disable speed stepping in bios, im not sure what else it could be.

But the GPU is a huuuge issue bc thats at full load on stock clocks.

Throttling is fine, it saves energy and doesn't matter when your computer demands full power.

You're probably getting throttled back because your overclock is too high or the VRAM is running too hot? You said stock clocks it still happens right? Weird

Does it do this when you're doing something where you actually need the full computing horsepower, like playing an intense game, as opposed to a synthetic benchmark?

If you're not seeing a real drop in performance in organic applications, I don't think I'd worry about it.

That said, the automatic clock adjustments are usually adjustable in the BIOS and graphics card driver manager.

edit: it has something to do with the thermal throttling in the nvidia bios settings but I cant change it.

card gets to around 56-58C and it takes my GPU core from 772mhz to 386mhz, keep in mine 772 is the stock clock and this happens about 30 seconds into this benchmark
