why you selling, I missed that.?
post #1883 of 6752
Oh just because I have 670 now. Ran the 660 for maybe a month and then upgraded to 1440p monitor. It could still play good games at that res but heavily modded Skyrim and other graphically demanding games were borderline. No fault of the card, it was great. Had it in a little tiny Coolermaster Elite 120 and it was silent and very cool with very limited case airflow. Very impresive card and hats off to Asus.

All you had needed to do was but a 2nd 660 & run SLI (unless you prefer a single card thinking.gif ). 660 SLI can handle 1440p smile.gif ... But I see you've picked up a Galaxy 670...Is it the dual fan version with the custom pcb & 6+8pin power connector? If so, it's one helluva OCer thumb.gif
post #1886 of 6752
Well my 660 is allergic to voltage. After unlocking I had to put a neg value on the core clock just to run stable crysis 3 would crash it. So there was no point in having an unlocked card. Flashed back to stock. But I used the msi twin frozer oc version instead. Works good now. Bummer. I never win the silicon lottery, even my sandy takes 1.45v to hit 4.8ghz......

My ivy was even worse. Lol I'm cursed with poor overclockers.mad.gif

Yeah but I was trully worried about the 192 bit bus. I thought the little bump in that coupled with the higher VRAM (which I actually use over 3gb of with modded skyrim) would hopefully allow for a little more future proofing (hoping for 2 years). And then I plan to SLI the 670 pretty soon here (hoping prices come down a little when 700 series releases).

But I can still look into it a bit more. I can still return my 670 and pick up another 660 and together teyd be cheaper than one 670. Hmm

And yes it is the Galaxy GC model. Beautiful card. Factory overclock already pretty good IMO, But I took it up to a stable 1163 on the GPU clock for now (air). Im comfortable there

Don't get discouraged, you are unlocking it improperly. Guys, don't take offense, but you could pull much more out of a Hz per watt if you did it properly. I have expounded the theory here

, but it's in Russian. I could translate it into English properly, if there is a real need, or you may stick to your methods.

below are my results with GTX 660 KFA2 EX OC at 1189|7160

I am keen to learn if you are keen to translate. I understand it could involve a lot of effort translating it though so do as you wish smile.gif
