mentioning it to you guys first before I post elsewhere.
PM me if interested.

cheers.
slight change.
I did SLi my N670GTX PE 2GD5/OC's and now using my N660GTX-Ti PE 2GD5/OC in my 1080p rig.
sold my SLi N560GTX-Ti 448's and the N670's will replace them then will upgrade from the N660 Ti when the N770GTX gets here.
grabbed the N670 @ $329 shipped US 'open box' deal.
just couldn't help myself.

I was trying to keep my 448's but oh well. redface.gif

New owner of the 660 Ti 2gb FTW Signature 2 as of yesterday, very excited. I got to try it for a few minutes since I spent several hours moving all my components to my new case the HAF XB. As much as I loved the HTPC case, it was too constrained and I couldn't add any water cooling in there for my CPU. Looking at the size of the 660 Ti FTW Sig I think I would of had some issues in Fractal Design Node 605 with the bracket in the original case.

I ran a few of my games on Ultra settings including Bioshock Infinite and there is no longer the issues that I was experiencing with the 560. Hoping to take this card for a spin this weekend and give it some more play time.

I'll probably start doing some OC first with just the basic EVGA Precision before trying to unlock the voltage. What are some safe numbers that I can go up to?

Got my MSI GTX 660 Ti Power Edition the other day as well, I'd like to know the same thing too! thumb.gif

I don't know about Precision and it's voltage adjustment tool, but I know for MSI Afterburner you need version 2.2.3...

For the cards other than MSI PE, I believe you are fine to boost it pretty high and it will lock at 1.175mv?

For the MSI PE, there is a little trick to finding out the actual voltage being pumped into our puppies, but I don't quite know what that number is.

That safe number you're both looking for, I don't quite have it. But I think it's safe to say that you can max the voltage while finding that max OC, then once you find your max settings, drop the volts down to the lowest stable offset.

I plan to sell the other GTX 560 Ti -448 (I kept one) and sell the GTX 660 Ti along with to grab a GTX 780..
so everything is for sale at the right price..

W/o upping voltage you should be able to run 1202 -1241 my guess on core (each card clocks differently) and somewhere like 300-700+ on mem .
many get to 500+ .
Of course don't start with those numbers right away bump them up with first gpu core than move to memory to find max each can do then back off a bit .

As Samurai707 said , you definitely want to use MSI AB 2.2.3 or latest beta 3.0.9 (this though has timer on install so you have to update when release comes out) .

You really don't need to do bios mode on MSI PE as you have full control of voltages . Out of box it does 1202 with no OC or voltage and probably go to 1241 or so w/o voltage . Add like 30-40mv and you be close to 1300 my guess .
The MSI PE, lightening work differently than moding bios to get from 1.175 to 1.212 on reference designs . They have a separate voltage controller that adds on top of reference voltage controller .
So for example your running BM test and you get 1.162-1.175v , if you added 40-50mv on slider (0.040-0.050v) you be "around" 1.212 like a modded bios but that voltage is added across all states not just boost .
In other words to save heat and lowest TDP you don't want to just max slider out as that will raise heat and TDP to point it might throttle a lot more than the added voltage helped .

One big note you can not use any software to see your total voltage the card gets and the second voltage controller is not readable , so GPU-Z voltage will be wrong, it will show only the stock reference voltage not what the second one add .
