During video playback, after a couple of hours, the Core and Mem clocks drop precipitously, locking in at 608MHz.
- A video freezes at any scene, sometimes erratically displaying a couple of scenes, as if flashing two images, one semi-transparent.
- The video player's interface and the computer are unaffected. I can still use the video player's interface, including for seeking, and the computer.
- Audio works as expected, even when the video freezes at a scene or erratically displays different scenes.
The GPU's temperature fluctuates between 79 and 80 degrees Celsius, never exceeding 80 degrees Celsius. I adjusted the fan curve, bringing the GPU's temperature down to 76-77 degrees Celsius, but the problem occurred again after a while. I am going to try reducing the voltage next. I also have another GTX 1060, which I will later test.
Below is a screenshot of MSI Afterburner's log file.
CPU: Intel Core 2 Q6700
RAM: Crucial 8GB DDR2
Video Card: Gigabyte GTX 1060 WindForce OC 3G
Power Supply: 375 W (I read on the Dell forums that the company underrates their power supplies and the power supply is more like 400-415 W)
OS: Windows 10 Pro 64-bit
