What are your temps in Far cry 3 \ Other game where vram usage spikes?
I need a new cooling solution before doing any more overclocking
why not just try a aftermarket cooler ? a lot of people are getting way to much heat for a good overclock if your gpu it going over 68c it will throttle anyway most of the time, I fitted this to my PNY GTX 660 ti XLR8
I fitted this to my 660 ti 3 days ago and its knocked off around 36c my max temps now never go over 48c wheather im benching heaven 4.0 in extream or playing any game farcry 3 bf3 black ops 2
im running lower clocks than you with around the same results in heaven 4.0, this cooler does look a little weird on the 660 ti as it sits kina off the pcb a little but remember this cooler was made really for the 670 and 680 and people that have already fitted it to there 680's are having great results and for as little as £29.99 you cant really go wrong.
one thing though to keep in mind is anyone with Sli setups this cooler probs wont fit as it takes up 3 slotsEdited by kev8792 - 2/19/13 at 5:58am
