Max Constant Boost I have achieved is 1201 mhz stable on all games so far while keeping the temps down at 60-64 with a custom fan curve in EVGA Precision. I achieved 1215 but would crash when playing some games.

My boost will not stay constant, even at stock. Maybe its the BIOS mod?

In order to keep the constant boost you have to keep your card balance (thermal,power target) if you cant find the sweet spot it will throttle your boost clock down once it hits 70 degrees and then throttle back at 80 again. An easy alternative is to enable K-Boost in Precision X and have it load at startup. Then create 2 .bat files for Nvidia Inspector. One for Constant Max Boost and one for Force Idle. It's all explained here but I'll gladly help you as you got the same card as me. http://www.evga.com/forums/tm.aspx?&m=1770296&mpage=1
Once you have it set up it's pretty easy, just force the boost when your about to play games, etc. and force idle when browsing the internet or not gaming. The main thing is make your own fan profile cause the auto is not gonna cool this gpu and that will impact your thermals and boost. Your max boost with this card is 1150, not bad...enough to handle any games with great fps. But you can easily push it 1188, 1201 by using the power target and setting your gpu offset to +39 or +53.

I get 13Mhz spikes no matter what. Even with voltage, power target, and offsets at default. Temp is fine.

This is a run of Heaven with everything at stock. I've tried lowering the offset, raising the voltage, raising the power target, and all combinations of them. I'll try using K-boost and Nvidia Inspector, like you said.

I bought 2 asus 660 gtx oc non-ti as the sli was somehow comparable to the 680 gtx with a lesser price, and i tought oc 2 cards might go further than oc one higher...

That was before i learned how slighlty 660 could be oc compared to 680.

I think if could i might spend some more coins on a single even if i am happy with them while i play.

Here is the setting i run them both, from hardocp because i was too lazy to find some myself yet biggrin.gif.




EDIT: still better than 680:
680gtx 3dmark11 10590
2x660gtx 3dmark11 (oced, i own) 11962
Nailed it ;-)

Im happy with just one biggrin.gif I play at 1080P and it handles all the games I play with extra fps to spare. The whole 600 series are strange lil buggas when it comes to overclocking, boosting, throttling, downclocking, etc. Took me a while to find a good overclock that it was stable at. Didn't need to overclock it but....you know! Just had too push it see how far it could go. Tried the unlock bios, but really didn't have much success with it, had a better overclock with voltage at 1.162 with K-boost enabled. Now my gpu clock doesn't throttle down when gaming or benchmarking. Here's my precision x screen shot at desktop and you could see in the bottom the constant boost doesn't drop, just a straight line across.

They'd realy be fantastic if they could have made some nice presets for easy oc!

So far i've seen the cpu's oc become so easy that any child could do it and on the other hand gpu seem realy tricky as even pros get a hard time at it.

Just another though, temps dont get anywhere near critical on oc so the 110% max voltage from gpu tweak seem quite ridiculous even on air.
