Honestly any game by DICE is a bad game to test your overclock. Their games have so many bugs and crashes from memory leaks to bad api calls they are horrible at coding. I used to crash on bf3 when it first came out almost every game with my settings at all stock.
Great game, awful developers....

Lol yea I remember those days, awful. But to Dice's credit, they've made some improvements. tongue.gif On the other hand it's nice to know that I know my card's limitations. I've lowered the mem offset couple ticks so I'll see if in the coming days/weeks it helps with stability. Any higher then my stable offset crashes, a la bf3.

Does the MSI PE card have a custom PCB?

Especially when non-ref heatsinks can keep these babies just as cold.
Loved my 660Ti Power Editions so much I got a 670 PE for my other rig :X

Non-ref heatsinks may keep them just as cold but if you dont want a jet engine in your room then its pretty nice.
My fans run at less than 1000 RPM and keep the card below 40 celsius. My total noise level is about 19db.
I really dont see any air cooler comparing to a properly setup water cooling system. (atleast for vga)

MSI PE is a non reference board so the 670 water blocks wont work on them.

MSI PE is a non reference board so the 670 water blocks wont work on them.

At least for me, the Twin Frozr shrouds are not even close to as loud as a ref... I do believe you may be mixing them up.
Over my H80 or my 360 with SP120s in P/P exhaust, I have never heard the Twin Frozr fans unless I manually put them to 80% or higher. They've never needed to be audible to keep the cards below 70C, even when in SLI.
For that matter, in SLI, they never broke 57C and were boosting to 1300+ core.
Don't need water to see great results thumb.gif
(Not saying water isn't fun though, I love my setup with my 580 for the Folding Team Competition).

my MSi PE/OC TF4 (660 Ti) has got to be the quietest card I have ever owned to date,
I have said that somewhere in the first 10 pages of thread.
I also have MSi PE/OC TF3's in SLi (448's) and I have to say they are deadly silent and cool as well.
however the 660 Ti I feel is even quieter than my 448's (single card comparison), I know it's quieter than my EVGA GTX 580 SC.

my opinion of course..
