Here is a screeny:
The first from the left is a stock 660 Power Table. The Middle was for a 660TI and the rightmost is my edited bios.
The highlighted option goes to the PCIe slot power IIRC one of the users here pointed out. You can Identify it by the value 66000 or 66000 mW or 60 Watts. It is constant for all the bios I have checked.
That highlighted row is somewhat the balancing point you should consider to OC higher. I bumped mine a hefty 50% more or so but it's under 100000 as the PCIe slot can only provide so much. I'm sorry I can't point you out to my actual settings since I am at work ATM.
IIRC, I just give each option a bump of 50% and tried. Too much right? But being an EE, my understanding is that a component will just suck up the power it needs no matter how much higher you feed it. But that's not always the case. So if you want to be careful, you can try any values you are comfortable with and try. Observe and gather your own conclusion.
I have just observed that feeding mine some 20%, 30%, 35% percent bump will always show a Power CAP warning on CPU-Z sensors tab. So I went for the kill with 50% and the cap was gone.
When adjusting, pull p the max value to a certain percentage and match those to the Def value and give your Max another bump depending on how the settings relate on the stock values and what you are comfortable with..
