Default HOLY CRAP crazy clock speeds

i was looking through everest today and noticed that my vid card settings went back to stock after my repair install so i re-ran nvtweak and i ran the find optimal frequency to find a relative baseline for my OC. the stock speed for my memory is 1000mhz and the core is 350mhz. i usually run them at 500/1300. it usually finds optimal around 375/1100 but this time it went to 400/2100! whats up with that???! im kinda scared to try it lol but at the same time i wanna see if it will work (although im pretty sure it wont lol) any ideas of why this would happen?

ok well i set them at 400/2100 and...it worked! BUT i ran a benchmark and got a worse score that when i had it at 500/1300. so i set them at 500/1300 and i get worse than stock. what is going on here? i might just reinstall the driver

If I use nvtweak on auto it just keeps going (without error) until it crashes the computer - be careful with it

im not using auto overclocking, i just had it test for optimal speeds. the strange thing is that i set it to 450/2800 which gets the score back up to around where it was at 500/1300 so maybe its dividing it in half?

2800 is your memory speed in ddr. It doubles the value when ddr option is enabled. At least thats how it works with ATI Tray Tools. Like say my memory was 1000. In ddr that would be 2000. Or if my ddr clock was 2000 my clock would be 1000. That could be the explanation for the big number.
