try it without an 'Aero Theme', switch it to 'Basic' and try it again.




same thing i tried crysis, tf2,stalker with mods and still cant pass 1500mb.
im not saying i get bad performance, its just weird might be a glitch with msi afterburner dunno..

Maybe it just doesn't need to utilize more due to your resolution?

Hello 660ti owners biggrin.gif
I am looking to replace my XFX 6970 with an Nvidia card for gaming on a 1920 x 1080 @ 60hz LCD platform. (I believe my rig should show below)
My current budget puts me at around 250-280 US dollars and the long term goal is to get a second 660ti later on down the road for SLI.
Just looking for suggestions for a good solid stable brand (I don't plan on OCing the GPU until SLI) that works great at w/e factory OC and boost they have default.
My case is a HAF 932 with the top fan uninstalled so IDK if the MSI twin frozr design would be better(really like those MSI cards) or if I should go with one with a shroud like the card I currently have has.

Thread Starter 
Get either ASUS or Gigabyte.
Remember that reference cards (blower cooler) are maaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaad noisy! wink.gif
However, they tend to pack less heat in SLI because of how it cools the GPU (blows air INTO the VGA, to the back of the card).

Cards with custom cooling, like MSI and Gigabyte, may require more space for better temps in SLI thumb.gif

Get an MSI Power Edition card definitely, it'll blow away every other 660 Ti out there.

Thanks for the suggestions fellas. I was going to ask and forgot to which one is louder but I guess I got my answer. I had been drooling over that MSI PE but it is a bit more than I have to spend(going to be a gift). I guess I will try and convince them to let me toss the extra cash in because from the looks of it the thing is worth the extra money.

My main concern is texture flicker and the 6970 even stock clocks is notoriously bad in that regard. I think it may be due to the card being for a multi monitor setup where you can expect a certain degree of that to occur anyway. I play on a single 24inch monitor and well ATI drivers pretty bad(I get no flicker if I play with no driver but then the performance is dirt). Nvidia seems a bit more user friendly and I am what you may consider new to building a PC.

Anyway I just wanted to add some new observations to Power Edition/Lightning voltage monitoring.

One of my friends from polish forums posted a chart lately which should be considered by many of us when adding voltages to 660Ti PE or PE OC Edition.

Voltages on Ligtning 680 measured with multimeter showed, that adding +50Mv does NOT result in 1.175 + 50 Mv. Voltage is scaling much more differently

And so this probably applies also to Power Edition.

Adding +50Mv resulted in almost 1,29v!!! This should be considered when overclocking high. And that would explain why I was able to clock my GPU to 1400 MHz on Core when added +100Mv (which is much higher than 1,3v, not 1,275 as I thought till now) and why the GPU was struggling to stay under 69 degrees.

I hope that some more tests will be made in this matter. Anyway - considering it be careful when OCing. In both 2.2.3 AB and newest BETA You can raise voltage for PE cards but the voltage won't show in GPU-z or MSI AB (and You all already know that). What You and I didn't know until now is the fact, that real voltage pushed into this card is higher than we thought it is. I'm still waiting for some more official tests to confirm that.

Anyway, my latest good for 24/7 OC is only +30Mv and +62 on core and +550 memory which results in astonishing 1280 MHz on core and 7100 MHz on memory and temps never go above 63 degrees with fan going at 58% MAX.

This is cool smile.gif

I also managed to get some cool score in 3dmark13 with some different OC

5.950 pkt. - GTX 660Ti @ 1320MHz @ 3650 MHz - Core i5 3570K @ 4.5 GHz http://www.3dmark.com/fs/400213

I know it's not high score when comparing to AMD but AMD has much better optimized drivers for this benchmark. Anyway this score let me beat graphic score of stock GTX 680 (actually two different owners) on PL forum smile.gif


why your score in 3dmark benchmark so low?? I get almost 9k score.

I would love to run those PE buggars in TRI SLI yessir.gif
and beat my best valley....
wink.gif
post #2269 of 3662
prices of the 660 Ti are dropping....!
even the most expensive at launch (I think it was the MSI PE/OC) can be found in the US for as low as $250+..

heck I only paid $329 for my PE/OC 670..
post #2270 of 3662
I paid $370 for mine here. frown.gif

I hate how overpriced everything is where I live. mad.gif
