    The reason why the GPU temperature is the same even if the load is different, because the fan speed is set to auto. These temperatures aren't bad and the GPU is running cool enough, so you can use the overclocked profile.
    If your question is about a device you own or want information on, always post the following characterisitcs of the device:
    -Model number
    -Part number(not required, but helpful)
    -CPU
    -GPU
    -Operating system

    The OC mode on Predator Sense will increase the performance by 5-10%, which isn't much and overclocking won't harm your GPU. If it is too much the GPU will throttle the frequency to keep the temperature under certain level.

    What is the max temperature of the GPU while gaming?

    an example : on Skyrim ULTRA settings i get CPU -60-75'C up to 30% usage , GPU - temp is 50-60' C usage is 60-85% ( i tried HIGH settings and the usage of GPU is at around 40-50% usage but Temperature is the SAME WTH -_- )

    i really don't know much about OC but maybe i can go to from normal to FASTER ?
