overclocked gpu too much need help!
hey, my name is Idan. I recently downloaded msi afterburner in order to control v-sync
and I saw the overclocking option I didnt know what was i doing and overclocked my gpu (nvidia geforce gtx 560 ti) a bit (core and memory no voltage) . seeing no great difference I pushed the slider close to the "max" (only core,memory a bit and again no voltage) (the "max" i figured was the max my gpu can take) and when I got in game (skyrim) the game crashed. there was an error message concerning my gpu though I didnt read it all. then i reset my gpu clock. and tried getting in game it worked but i only had 16 fps I restarted my computer tried other games nothing. so I read some guides about overclocking and realized my mistakes and still I could not find out what happened to my gpu because it couldn't get that hot in the seconds the game was working and that is the only danger i found about overclocking to much in the guides I read. later I downloaded gpu-z and found out that when I am playing instead of being on my normal core clock which is 823, at max my clock was 405 i dont know how it was before the incident but my games run on 16 fps instead of 60 and I want to fix it.
if anybody knows what happened to my computer or how can I fix it please post it. thanks ahead for any help and sorry for bad English.
edit: the problam just vanished so no need for help any more . though i would still like to know what happened and if there is any damage
