If it's the MSI Power Edition, 1.175 is not the actual voltage, there is some glitch due to the extra power being pumped into them... some people have linked some pages that prove that... I can't remember where in this thread but it's here. I haven't done it to find out my volts either. : \

If you notice, your voltage will always hit 1.175 in AB regardless of the offset. Also, any MSI Afterburner version after 2.2.3 (I think) doesn't actually adjust the voltage.

right ,you can't read the total voltage if you use any of sliders in AB, but it does seem to work (power% goes up with slider raise) .

You need 2.2.3 or if you want to get newer versions working add these lines to your config file in profile sub folder .

profiles subfolder,config file Ven_10.............



add these lines
[Settings]
VDDC_Generic_Detection = 0
VDDC_uP6262_Detection = 4:30h
VDDC_uP6262_R1 = 1000

This only works for 660ti PE , not 670PE or lightening (those need other values as they use a different controller ).

http://www.tomshardware.com/news/MSI-GTX-660-670-overvolting-PowerEdition,18013.html

"Our colleagues over at Tom’s Hardware Germany seem to have caught MSI red handed, overvolting the GPUs on the GTX 660 Ti and GTX 670 Ti Power Edition boards (Google Translate) to achieve a higher and longer lasting GPU boost state by basically circumventing the PWM controller. In other words, MSI was cheating. Perhaps no one would ever have known if it hadn’t been for one side effect. The increased voltage can cause the system to refuse to POST."

Well... I didnt use afterburner but using evga- precision x. As far as I know 2013 PE editions have locked voltage in BIOS to fix issue which TH wrote about still i don't see anything wrong in MSI overvoltage - they give 36 months warranty.

I have a different problem - my CPU is 3570k is clocked 4,5 GHz now. Yesterday I ran first game test - World of Tanks. Set everything to ultra where my 560Ti was struggling to maintain 60 FPS (vsync on) - on 660ti performance is nice I get constant 60 FPS sometimes it drops to 50 but when it drops my Gpu usage is only 50-60%, normally 60-75. Is it normal? Does it mean te game can't utilize whole Gpu or woot? I don't have bottleneck, I'm running newest drivers... I know that if my Gpu usage stayed at constant 99% I wouldn't suffer any drops but it never got to this value - only in 3dmark. I tried to set maximum performance in nvidia 3d settings but whenever I hit apply and close control panel this particular setting resets to stock adaptive. Weird?

How do You think about the results of these benchmarks?

IMO the MSI 660 Ti Power Edition is a good card. I was expecting less performance but I'm happy with this card.




Edit: Fixed second benchmark.

Yes of course. I'll do it today.

I've to correct my second benchmark, the AVG FPS of Tomb Raider is actually the MAX FPS. Sorry for my mistake. The correct AVG FPS was:

660 Ti Stock - 31.2 FPS
660 Ti Power Edition - 33.4 FPS
660 Ti Power Edition OC - 38.3 FPS

Thats pretty big jump (20+% ) . is that from just OC or from new patch and driver released yesterday ..

Also what is your running max boost , 1241 mhz ? .
I ask cause you list what seems the base clock of reference 660ti and stock MSI 660ti PE/OC and then your OC, that the boost clock right .

anyway that nice bump .

The max boost clock is ~ 1284 MHz (actually I see 1301MHz a couple of seconds in GPU-Z sensors because boost fluctuates)

The driver is 314.07 released on middle febraury.

Yes yo are right. I put the MSI 660 Ti PE/OC @ stock clocks (1020/1502) and then I overclock to 1150/1802 (aprox. 1284MHz boost)

What I'm trying to say is: for a 660 Ti is more important MEMORY overclocking than core overclocking. The real boost on FPS is from the memory oc.

yup , I raised my mem to 440+ and noticed nice bump in games and I don't even use AA .

Is that with stock bios and stock voltages ?

I doubt mine will go that far .

PS: don't know if you know this but there are thermal clock steps , max boost clcoks only come into play at around 60+c , if you try an keep temps down low with fan profile you get -13mhz untill you hit 60-61c , so sweet spot is 61 .

Now I say this cause its very hard to have fan profile that keeps all app temps below 58c or so and not get real loud . I was getting breif 13+ spikes when I hit over 60c as I had avg temps set around high 50's but something like FC3 pushes even more temps than for example heven or valley BM .

So now I give fan profile in AB small slope to 60 and then steep from then on so temps stay at 61-62c which is still a lot better than the 67c I used to get with stock fan settings .
