    Just get rid of your config file, it's probably corrupted now which is the source of your problem

    I overclocked Skyrim and turn on reversenx, but it's exactly the same than in handled mode the graphics, so it's not worthy in this particular game

    I'm having an issue with my OC profiles not working on Skyrim since yesterday. All I did was update my Tinfoil/Mercury install. I'm still running on 8.1, and my OC settings seem to be working in every other game still.
    However when I load up Skyrim, it doesn't seem to take my settings, no matter what I set the clocks to in the editor. I already tried setting an OC on qLaunch, as suggested a few posts back by someone with a similar issue, but it didn't seem to have any effect. Also tried deleting my config file, didn't have any effect, either.

    Here is the sys-clk log for launching Skyrim. Everything looks fine to me, but I figured I should add it to try to give as much info as possible.
    Code:
    [2019-09-17 03:42:01] [mgr] Application TitleID changed to: 01000A10041EA000
    [2019-09-17 03:42:01] [mgr] Setting CPU clock to 1785000000

    [2019-09-17 03:42:02] [mgr] GPU clock is now 921600000
    [2019-09-17 03:42:02] [mgr] Memory clock is now 1600000000
    And help is appreciated, thanks!

    had you consider that skyrim its the same oc, docked or handled?
    that was my impression when i tried it with sysclk and reversenx

    Have you actually checked the logs if it's setting the clocks correctly or not? Some games just don't benefit as much or at all from overclocking, so it's not enough to just look at them.

    I edited my comment with the log for when launching Skyrim. And yes, OCing does have a profound effect on the game, especially when heavily modded, and running it with the 60 fps tweak.
    This issue is new since yesterday. Before that the game would OC fine. All I'd done is switched from Tinfoil/Mercury to another homebrew menu in that time. I tried switching back, with no success on attempting to fix the issue.

    Edit: Removed file.

    @Dariusz if you haven't got it compiled already here is the edited and compiled file so you can bypass the 460mhz max gpu limit. It can now go up to the 921mhz gpu limit in handheld mode. (Credit to TheRadziu for helping me compile this)

    In vanilla Sys-clk, you can go higher than 460mhz, if you use it with the nintendo charger plugged in. You can set the GPU clock up to docked speeds. The limits were put in place for a reason. They aren't just arbitrary limits "because this looks good."

    Removed file. Totally understandable given average user won't understand potential issues with this

    — Posts automatically merged - Please don't double post! —

    Given what was said above ^ I will not be distributing the file on this thread. The only thing that was modified was bypassing the hardcoded gpu limit in handheld mode. If you know the big risks that come with bypassing that. You can compile it with the source on GitHub.

    How much of a difference is the strain on the battery in handheld between 1785mhz cpu, 1600mhz ram, and 460mhz gpu, and 768mhz gpu with everything else stock? Does the gpu require more power to scale frequency than the other components? Has any testing been done to determine this?

    May I have the link for that file? I know and understand the risk involved. I apologize to the OP for asking for the file here, I can't seem to find the PM button.

    EDIT: Nevermind, I was able to mod and compile it :) Thanks anyway.

    A few analysis videos and articles were done by digitalfoundry on switch overclocking, you can check their youtube channel

    DF never looked into going beyond what sys-clk allowed out of the box.
