Got a couple questions for all of you pros out there. I've started to play around with overclocking on my cards in SLI. Looks like one of my cards is a dud though, as I can't even add +40 to the core without it crashing in Heaven benchmark. I'm using MSI Afterburner to overclock, and I thought with version 3.0.0 Beta 9 that it unlocked voltage control for owners Lightning/Power Edition cards. Seems like upping the core voltage doesn't do anything, as my cards still top at 1.175v when benchmarking, as shown in GPU-z. Which leads to my second question: does the 660ti PE/OC not have a voltage sensor? I can't get the voltage to show up as a graph in Afterburner even after enabling voltage monitoring, as it isn't shown in the monitoring tab. I look forward to your replies and thanks in advance!
The old version of AB 2.2.3 and new beta3.0 should work with PE/lightening models to give more voltage .
Make sure you have option "unlock voltage control" enabled .

Don't go by GPU-Z it is wrong as it can only read the reference voltage controller . The way triple voltage works is it has a second voltage controller that it adds offset amount to reference voltage . This controller is not readable so no software can give true output .

That said if you found max clock with it at 0 core voltage and added 20-30mv you should be able to bump clock few steps 13-26+mhz .
I wouldn't recommend going over 50-60mv for 24/7 use as that would be over 1.2v , just so you know I wouldn't max it out automatically .
Find sweep spot is best IMO .

You should also tell as TDP would go up . So run Valley of Heven or whatever BM noting power % at a point in time , then rerun it with slider max and it should be like 10% higher and temps might be higher too depending on if you setup fan profile .

If the temps are higher than 62c under full load than it is set too high, but i recommend that u stay under the 60c because your room temp vary as well so you are always save when u stay under 60c.

But always monitor your temps when gaming or other heavy stuff that puts a high load on the CPU, i always use HWINFO64 in the back ground so after gaming i am looking at my temps and if too high i drop the vcore if possible or under clock a little.

I also use HWiNFO64, while running Metro LL my temps were ranging in the 40's and while running Crysis 3 it was jumping from mid 40's to mid 50's. This is my overall core temp, which I think is the one you're supposed to monitor? At the very least much better temps then that Intel stock box cooler... I hit 89 degrees in like a minute on Crysis 3 and just quit out, it was probably close to auto shutdown.

oh i am sorry i tought u have AMD CPU LOL

your temps are just fine and u can clock even higher if u want but to be honest i do not know much about Intel CPU's but what i do know is that Intel has an much higher heat threshold than AMD.

CPU 0 is CPU temp, motherboard is motherboard temp of course and CPU is socket temp and temp 3 is vrm.

Make sure when you overclock your card is that u stay under 70c because that is its sweet spot, also make sure you using the 2.2.3 because later or earlier versions do not add any voltage and so do not clock as well.

I had the same problem until i have the 2.2.3 version.

Luckily I kept an eye on the temps, had a store computer and when my first 660Ti (replaced the stock card) hit over 90 degrees in five minutes on Far Cry 3 I decided to build a new computer around a few salvaged parts. I was sold a computer with a GT530 that retailed at 2.3k, can't believe how much of a noob I was, those damn salesmen are too damn shady, acted like the vram is all that was important and I got it. Anyway, my top GPU is running hotter then my bottom one, I've read that this is normal but it is going a tad bit over 70 degrees.

LOl yes most retail shops are only to sell u things and that is where they good at.

In Holland those shops are the cheapest but u do need to do some research before u buy it because they do not know much about it or give bad advice.

i had some experience on that myself too so that is why i came to this form to learn and help people with problems.

According to the temp. make sure you have good airflow in the case and if u can put an fan on the front side of the card so that it can blow on the heat sink of the card and exhaust it out of the back of your case, the card can run hotter but it is not advised for everyday use and the hotter the card gets the less is the performance i noticed.

No doubt, they really don't know anything about specs, they just tell you what they read on the stickers. I think the airflow isn't too bad but yeah if it does get too hot I can install up to 4 fans to the side mount. It's been awesome building a custom PC, seeing the specs of what they sell store PC's at, with similar specs to mine, I've seen it go for $4,000. Actually just found it, it's just pathetic how they lie to us http://www.harveynorman.com.au/pryon-pry-g7243-storm-trooper-gaming-desktop.html

Nah they do not its called marketing what they do and they only sell stuff and do not get payed for knowledge.

I did enjoyed my build too and i had switched from case once from Corsair carbide 300R to Obsidian 650D because of lack of space for my H100I.

Did u manage to OC your GPU little higher?

Also what helps me a lot is when opened the afterburner, is to set the fan to the max to get the best cooling and let it run for like one minute to get it nice and cool than start benchmarking.

So before benching it is nice and cool and it takes little longer to heat up. It helped me a lot when i tried to find the max OC of my GPU.

But if i were you i would put a fan blowing on your GPU's to run them nice and cool.

Just got an EVGA 660Ti (2GB) for £100, 8 months old, hell of a deal as they are still £250 new! wheee.gif

660Ti_Hero_685x368.png

Will take pictures and join when I get it in a few days. My first real nVidia card, and my first EVGA card, looking forward to retiring this 5870 to my girlfriends rig and pushing my games a little more. See how it copes at 1440p, I was planning a 3GB 7950 or similar, but this deal was too good to pass up!

Quick question, I assume I could flash the SuperClocked BIOS to my card without issue?

that is one heck of a deal man! congrats thumb.gif

Well at multi monitoring at 1440p u will run out of memory and bandwidth. But it can play any game at 1080p with no problem.

Thanks. biggrin.gif

I know, I could do with more VRAM/Bandwidth but I didn't mind at this price. My 5870 plays all the games I play at mostly max @ 1080/1200 anyhow, I just wanted a little more future proofing. That, and I needed a GPU for my girlfriends new rig, so this saves me buying her one as she can have my 5870 and I get an upgrade at the same time. tongue.gif
