you sure , set OSD to display clock and GPU temp .

Start Heven and watch clock below 70c and then above 71c when it goes past it , normally it will drop down 13mhz .

Ok, I've modified my card's BIOS to the maximum voltage and played with MSI Afterburner for a while. Is it better to use an older specific Afterburner version or the most recent is fine, by the way?

My question is about temperatures and heatsinks. My memory overclock has not changed stability from 1805MHz stable in Heaven with increased core voltage, and I can run at ~1280MHz core, but temperatures get to 75C pretty fast while running Heaven. It's not really much of an increase over the unlocked BIOS, but I think I could only do 1267 on the old BIOS for a very brief time until crash, and now I can get up to 1350ish MHz for a bit before it crashes in Heaven.

I clearly need a better heatsink vs my reference, so would an Accelero Mono Plus be sufficient? It allows keeping the large aluminum VRM heatsink preinstalled on reference GTX 660 Ti cards, which is superior to the small heatsinks that come with Accelero coolers. My other alternative is a Prolimatech MK-26, but... I worry that it's too heavy for the tiny GTX 660 Ti PCB and will really weigh it down a lot. Thoughts?

(Not going for the Antec Kuhler mod, as I can't stand buzzy Asetek pumps).

I've been getting this issue now for the last few weeks and even did a fresh OS install because of it. After a few days the issue has returned. Any idea on how to fix this? I get this bsod only when I wake my computer from sleep. The net give a lot of info but can't make sense of the solutions offered. Hoping someone here knows how to fix.

Is your graphics driver the latest one from the nVidia site? (WHQL or beta, whichever one you're using).

Also, found this article for your information (in case it's relevant):

Yup, been having the same issue and have found no fix for it. I've tried numerous settings, registry edits, etc. Every single time I wake my PC I get a "Graphics display driver failed to respond" or something to that effect. I'm lucky if it hasn't completely crashed the PC, which usually happens if it has been in sleep for more than a couple hours. Right pissed about this, actually.

Yep, I've tried two older drivers and the latest, still getting the bsod. Let me read this article and see if it helps.

Working on getting better cooling for my 660Ti on the cheap. Just ordered an Accelero Mono Plus for $35 from Amazon warehouse deals and these ramsinks:



Apparently the thermal tape on them isn't the strongest, but we'll see. I don't want to use the bad thermal adhesive that comes with Accelero products, or any for that matter in case of an RMA. Keeping the stock reference VRM heatsink on.

I don't know how those of you that are doing 1300+ MHz are doing it. I can barely do 1202MHz (-63 MHz offset) semi-stable (sometimes it gets through Valley/Heaven 4.0 other times it crashes near the end). If I leave the offset at 0 it crashes in Valley within two seconds of starting it up. Guess my EVGA SC just sucks? frown.gif

Edited: Btw, I could do 1189 MHz without the mod, so this seems almost pointless.

I had the same problem and I FIXED IT BY INCREASING MY OFFSET VOLTAGE! Try it and report back thumb.gif

Edit: I'm talking about motherboard BIOS offset voltage

All about that MSI PE 660Ti smile.gif Both of mine can do over 1300, I love it! 1333 and 1306 due to temps hitting 70 now in heavy load.
