I'm having power target issues with my card as well. Soon as I hit 102% with max 114% power target slider my core drops. I'm on MSI PE card.

The PE card is broken. There has been plenty of posts regarding the power target issues on that card (not being able to break 102% nomatter what). The "fix" that i am currently using, is by using a customized mixture of a Gigabyte and the MSI BIOS, fixing the power target bug.

Well if its 225 Watt at 147% then Im using way more than that at 160% lol biggrin.gif its reference short pcb zotac gtx 670 (60301) see my Rig below wink.gif

Hi fellas. What is the best way to to overclock these cards in SLI. I followed the guide and everything went good on one card. I have received my 2nd card today and want to add it in, but for overclocking, do I need to do it all over again with SLI enabled?

yes. and dont be depressed if you lose A LOT of oc on your first card or even both in sli. NOTHING will max these cards in sli except planetside 2.

How about BF3 on 3 24" monitors? 6060x1080
I would argue your statement about not maxing the cards. I don't think I will be able to play Ultra full AA with these 2 cards at an acceptable fps. My acceptable fps is 75 minimum.
post #1689 of 3357
ok, not a single game will max these cards on a single monitor. forgot to clarify as everyone/almost everyone tries to disprove everything when you make a general statement.

and you should have bought either the 4gb variants or an amd pair, in my OPINION. btw, at straight 1080p @72hz, i totally max bf3(no motion blur) at 72fps adaptive vsync locked on a 48 man server with a single card clocked at 1285/3456. thats also with quality settings in nvidia cp.

lol, I don't try to disprove anything. I just wanted to make it clear what I had. By the way they are indeed the 4GB cards. Thank you for the info.
Now I still kind of have a question. How do we overclock them for SLI. I still have the option in Precision X to change each card individually. Should they not be overclocking together? I have my "sync" checked. Am I missing something somewhere else?
Just noticed they move together regardless of which one I move. Ok, on to overclocking them again. Thank you much and thank you very much to SeanPoe (Topic creator)
