Turning off overclocking.
Got a gigabyte card. Came with an intel core i53470, 3.2ghz, overclocked to 3.6. I have some problems, and everyone is telling me to turn it off. So I'm in the Gigabyte UEFI DualBIOS Screen, looking at the M.I.T. menu, and it doesn't let me change anything. How do i undo the overclocking?
