hahaha, tongue.gif. you should try clean installing older drivers then. If you get better performance in SLi, then stick to that driver wink.gif. My cards get better with every new driver Nvidia releases though.

Valley doesn't report my clock correctly. According to AB I peak @ 1215MHz. The card also drops to 1202 and 1189. So that was 1189-1215.

Again, that's my old settings with +13 on the core from AB. My card can not do 1306MHz it can't deal with more than a 1215MHz boost reliably.

Oh okay, mine too stays mostly at 1215Mhz on valley for some reason, that's why our score is probably equal.

Ya' the card stays on 1215 fairly well in Valley, however 1202 and 1189 do happen. You get 34.7 FPS I only get 34.3. You're doing better than I am. My memory is @ 3392 as well.

I'm using an 1280 boost limit and controlling my boost with voltage. If I use max voltage the card shoots up to 1267 which in no way stable. It crashes after 10 secs and I lock up.

If I use a boost limit less than 1280 I get a lower boost average.

Overall, I'm happy with the card.

Yeah, I might do that. But it seems to only affect benches at max clocks, I get better fps in games with the newer ones.

Also, speaking of waste of money on Titans. A guy I work with bought 3 of them to play WoW at 1080P. Kill me now.

Maybe my 3770k at 4.8Ghz plays a role in it? idk....

Possibly, and you're on PCI-e 3.0. I may try it again with my 6300 @ its max clock; it will do up to 4.99GHz.

I doubt it will change anything. BTW did you cycle through all stages of the bench by hitting enter before you benched?

I did not. I probably should have done that.

Ok, I increased my CPU clock to 4.99, raised my NB to over 2600, it was @ 2400, and I dropped my 2133 ram from Cas 10 to 9.

Most importantly, I cycled through all stages of the bench with enter before benching it. I did not do that on the first run. Now I've 34.5.

6300 @ 4.99GHz NB 2600+ Ram 2133+ Cas 9 Cycled through stages before benching.

Again, 1215 max with some drops to 1202 and 1189.

EDIT: If I cycle through the bench with enter before benching with my CPU @ 4.66 I get 34.4. So all that other tweaking I mentioned added .1 FPS tongue.gif

The reason Valley reports my clock as 1306 is because it must be reading my boost limit. That gets pushed up to 1306 from 1280 when I OC with AB. I control my boost with voltage. As I said, max voltage will cause me to hit 1267 which is way too high. I use voltage that keeps me @ 1215. If I use a lower boost clock limit I actually get a worse boost clock average. What I've set now does best for my particular card.

GPUs overclocked to 1100

Instant Crash upon benchmark starting


Batman Arkham City Benchmarks - Overclocked from stock 993 to 1093, no memory boost, overvoltage 1050, kboost off,

1920 res/no physx high/Anti Aliasing 32x nvidia/Tess Normal/everything else maxed

Low-3
Highest-68
Average-46

running hot even with fans on high, averaging low to mid 70c and continued to climb every benchmark I ran. I have a NTXT Phanton case with liquid cooling and two extra fans, yet both of my GTX660s reach high temps fast with much less overclocking than what others are reporting.



My Zotacs cannot achieve 1100, but stress out at 1093??? To sum up, the overclocked versions of these benchmarks for BAC are less than a few FPS more than stock. Some users are saying they can get 9% out of it and achieve upwards of 1200 on the gpu core clock? Wow...I can't get over 1093 without instant crash upon starting any benchmarks. Is something wrong with my Zotacs? The GTX660 in sli is seriously amazing, but I am just not sure if mine happen to have some issues, or if I should be at all upset about not being able to overclock anywhere near others. Since I am running in SLI, the extra 9% per gpu would make a huge difference, but the stock versions with no overclocking at all still manage to bust out insane fps on a very hard to run game. Not sure if it is at all merited to complain. But...that extra 18% or so would be awesome, i just crash if I go higher than 1093. Without any overclocking, Physx off, Tess Normal and Anti Aliasing off, I get over 200FPS easy in Arkham City. Nutz....

Hey I also have zotac gtx 660 with 993 core clock by default and I am also able to OC to +100mhz (1093 core)
If you run some benchmark or games, it will peak at 1200ish. You might want to monitor your peak using GPU-Z.
My maximum temperature is also around 75c, but not even so bad.
