Hi I'm currently using EVGA PrecisionX as an overclock utility, but I'm having some problem with the memory clocks. Every time i change the slider to say +150MHz, hit apply and save the profile. But when I load the profile, it loads everything the way I set it EXCEPT the memory clock slider, which always goes back to zero. I'm not even sure it's applying the memory overclock in the first place, at this point. 
I have a GTX 970 G1 Gaming.
Anybody else having this issue or knows how to solve it?

    Yes I have been having that problem with my GTX 970 FTW, in my case anytime I set a memory overclock and hit apply, the memory overclock resets to 0. It will not " take ".
     
    I posted about this some time ago, thought I was the only one.
    This happens to me with Precision X, even the legacy version , and it also happens with MSI Afterburner as well. No problem applying a core overclock, just the memory change will not take.  I finally just gave up on it.

    Guess I am not alone, the memory setting does not work with my GTX 970 ssc 2.0+
    I set it hit enter and the memory speed stays the same.
    That is with an older ver. and the newest ver.

    I deleted the EVGA PRE.X. and installed MSI Afterburner still does the same thing.
    I can set everything higher, voltage,GPU mhz, but not the memory mhz speed.
    Fan speed settings seem to work well as it did with PRE.X.
    So I would have to say it is not a software problem, most likely. I think any way.
    It's ok it's going real well, very stable at the settings I have.
    Folds, crunches GPUgrid and primegrid with no errors.
    Would be nice to know why we are having this problem, not going to lose sleep over it.

    Memory Clock still does not work for me, no matter what I do it resets to 0 after hitting apply. This with Precision X or Afterburner.

    should we start a new thread with a more clear title to bring attention to this issue?

    I tried it on another computer with a GTX960, that won't oc the memory either.
    So it is with 3 cards, two GTX970s and one GTX960 on two different computers.
    Using both Afterburner and EVGA PRE.X
    One system is Win 8.1 Pro64 and the other is Win 7 Pro64
    I tried it with the all settings stock and with the GOU overclocked.
     
    Is there a setting we have to unlock or something?
     
    EDIT: I just sent a PM to one of the EVGA techs pointing to this thread asking for some help.
    So hopefully help will be on its way sometime in the near future.

    So I've been playing around with the memory clock offset and haven't been able to reproduce the same behavior that you guys are seeing.  Starting with no preset, I can make an offset, apply and see the change in the interface and under load with the hardware monitoring and the OSD.
     
    Saving that as a preset then making another change to the memory offset again, I see this update as expected and click on the profile to have it update back to the saved value.  All of this can be seen change in the hardware monitor and OSD.  I can continue to do this with a second preset and go between both with updates as expected.  I threw in very mild changes to the GPU clock offset for both presets as well with no change in behavior.
     
    I did all this on:
    Windows 10 (Clean install)
    Precision X ver 5.3.6 w/ 980's
     
    No real changes done to the default Precision X settings except raising the power target before any of these changes where made.

    Were you seeing this in Afterburner as well?

    Yes with Afterburner as well. After I uninstalled EVGA PRE.X . on both systems. Win7 pro and win 8.1 pro.
    3 different video cards, two GTX 970 and a GTX 960 all EVGA cards.
     
    Thanks you for getting back to me/us here in this thread.

    I'll have to direct this further up.  I tried another test bench, another GPU and still haven't been able to reproduce the error but from the information posted so far I can't determine whether the source is hardware or software.\
     
    For now, if you haven't wiped the drivers from the system, do so.  Then use the clean install option under the Custom selection when installing drivers.  Looks like some users have had success with DDU.

    Re: EVGA PrecisionX Memory Clock Issue 2015/10/06 06:49:33 (permalink)
    Update on my end:
    I think I have found a way to make it work, at least for me. When not running a 3d application, no matter what I do I can not get the memory clock adjustment to stick. Core clock does, memory clock always resets to 0 after clicking apply. This was with both Precision and with Afterburner.
     
    Currently I am using Afterburner. So I went in to my 3d game, and whilst it was up and running, I then adjusted the memory clock - clicked apply - and it took the setting. I run two monitors, and have the AB software displayed on my second monitor, so it was easy for me to go in and make the memory clock adjustment whilst the game was running.
     
    I have tested this a few times, and so far every time I make the memory adjustment whilst the game is running it sticks. Back at desktop, if I make a change to the memory clock  the memory resets to 0 after clicking apply. Don't know if by design this is the way it is supposed to be or not, but at least I can now get it to hold a memory overclock by doing it this way.

    For me it's the other way around. I was folding and overclocking at the same time when I stumbled over this behavior. I paused the folding process and then the mem offset stuck.

    This just started happening to me after installing a second 980 Ti in SLI. Funny thing is, only one of the cards has this problem. I noticed it running Fire Strike Ultra. One card resets its memory clock offset back to zero as soon as I start the benchmark.

    Same deal here.  I've uninstalled and reinstalled EVGA Precision.  I've uninstalled and reinstalled NVIDIA drivers.  I've tried MSI Afterburner.  I cannot adjust the Memory Clock Offset on my GTX 970 SSC ACX 2.0+.  
     
    EVGA Precision XOC v6.2.3
    GPU1: Geforce GTX 1060 6GB
    Driver: 388.71
    Bios: 86.06.03.00.60
     
    GP2: Geforce GTX 970
    Driver: 388.71
    Bios: 84.04.36.00.72
     
    Thanks!
     
    UPDATE: CMOS reset on BIOS seems to have helped.  I have no idea why.

    Still no progress on this? I'm on my 3rd 980TI SC that cannot perform a memory overclock. It can overclock on idle, but as soon as the GPU is loaded up, it returns to stock clocks, no matter the overclock.

    I shave the same problem with my 960 4gb after i installed my 1060 6gb. slider stays where i put it and the mem clock goes up for maybe half a sec and then wont move and stays a little below what its supposed to be at stock.
