Y510p SLI enabled causes game to crash (is overclocking a solution?)

2017-11-10, 17:13 PM

Hello everyone!


I am facing a really annoying problem with my computer.


I have had it for 3 years now, but since I am noob, I have never enabled my SLI.


This week I decided to learn how to do it, so I have updated my drivers and then enabled it so I could get better fps playing CSGO (when I bought it I used to get 70-60 fps, nowadays I would not get more than 30)


The problem is, dispite of getting an average of 150 fps, after a couple of minutes playing CSGO, my fps will drop to 30 or the game will display a black screen and will freeze.


After doing a huge research I've found many "possible solutions" and applyed them, those are:


1 - clean install of new drivers (DDU and disabling antivirus)

2 - change my memory clock offset using this guide https://forums.lenovo.com/t5/Lenovo-P-Y-and-Z-series/Y510p-SLI-CS-GO-Freeze-nvlddmkm-Crash/m-p/3426621#M148065
3 - reinstalling the ultrabay

and some that worked, but are not acctually a solution, just a "work arround" that decreased my fps

4 - For SLI rendering mode, choose Force Alternate frame rendering (30 fps)

5 - Turning Vsync On (60 fps and get a laggy mouse and keyboard, same result of playing with SLI disabled)


As i said, I did a huge research, and it came to my understanding that the solution is to overclock my GPU, as we can see in these examples, and others:






The only problem now is that I dont know how to perform this, and neither which numbers I should apply (I have downloaded the Nvidia Inspector).


Do you have any thoughts? Am I right about this solution? Is there any tutorial I could follow? (newbie level please)

Thanks in advance!
