Got you beat there whistle.gif ... winksmiley02.gif

In my case, it's more like "gotta hate evga for that option" tongue.gif ....I did a step-up from a 570 to a 670, and the 670 at that time cost 420$ or so; it was "okay", BUT the shipping to evga cost over 45$ or something like that, and i still don't know why they charged me that much. I got sent a reference 670 that could not do more than 1176Mhz and occasional red screens @1.212mv as an icing on the cake... I was soooo pissed lol tongue.gif. I found someone that bought it for 380$ or so then i added 20$ and ended up with two MSI 660's biggrin.gif...

I'm never doing that step up program ever again!. I lost more than i gained from that.. frown.gif , and as long as there is an MSI version of a particular card, i will get that as opposed to EVGA. I've had no issues with MSI's customer support, and their cards overclock like cray cray also.

Hey, I've just tried the Bios mod for the second time, now having a bit of a better understanding of Overclocking.
I've still yet to overclock my CPU for the simple reason that I don't have the money to order the CPU fan until June.

Using Heaven on Extreme, and running it twice at each clock, I was able to get these scores.

Stock: FPS 57.7- Score1453
OC 110% +50 +250: FPS 62.2 - Score 1566
Bios OC 170% -30 +250: FPS 61.3 - Score 1544

Any idea why my scores dropped after the bios mod?
OC's have been stable, though the Bios OC crashed during K-Boost.

Well in that case, I'll just continue to sit on this unopened 670 FTW Sig2 until the 700 series is released. It's only a couple of days old with 28 days left to exchange without a loss biggrin.gif

I don't really feel the itch to upgrade to 700 series. As it's just a refresh, I think it makes more sense to wait for the 800 series. I think it's mostly I don't like the hassle of reselling my old parts, which is why I have 2 huge boxes of computer parts sitting in the corner. To each his own though. If I see some amazing performance gains from the 700's, I might consider upgrading and selling my 660s I guess.

it will take some time till 770ftw is released so if you dont need 670ftw sell it while you can. new 770 will be like overclocked 680 and should cost the same tough i would go for 780 if its priced well.
then again how long till 8xx, another 18-24 months? unless amd brings 20nm in december, their gpu will definitly loose high end, just like they cant offer anything in high end cpu (377k, 3930k)

best

Agree with ya. All this marketing malarky is part of the way these companies make cash in between tech jumps.A refresh every two jumps seems the best way to go about it unless you can make next to no loss on your cards.

Sidenote, GPU black screened and defaulted to 549Mhz. I was using a 1215 core and 200 mem with 1.2v. I then tried 1202 and it still did the same. Getting tired of the card being unstable with an overclock and just gonna reflash to the original BIOS from MSI's website. 5FPS just isn't worth the hassle.

Same thing happened to me with my sli 660 SC's. Try tuning down your clocks about 5mhz until you don't get any crashes in bench tests or gaming. I was running 1280 with crashes here and there in game so I tuned down the clock to 1208 synced in precision x for a while then set that in the bios once it was consistently running for a few hours with no crashes. That is also at just 100% power load but my cards will still spike well into the 1200's in game.

Hey guys, considering getting a gtx660 or a 650ti boost. Was wondering what kind of fps and settings you get on bf3 multiplayer 64player matches? I sold my 670 in dec when I had a while of no gaming and am npw thinking about a budget card to fit the bill when I get the time to play. Before the 670 i had a 570 and seems the boost matches that while the 660 is closer to a 580? Im on a 120hz monitor so think the 660 might be better.

Thanks

After completing the suggested BIOS flash OP had posted (EVGA GTX 660 SC 2gb), I tried running the Nvidia Hair demo. Within seconds I got "nvidia drivers have stopped working and recovered" messages and I would receive those messages every 30 seconds or so. I saw a few of you had the same issue so I figured I'd post my fix. I had to do some fine tuning in Precision X with a PT of 120% instead of the suggested 170%. I then configured the clock offsets to +70 and +190.
I no longer receive the error messages but I have yet to test the long term stability. But I also wanted to ask, does anyone know where to get a stock BIOS for the GTX660 SC? I want to do a bit more research into why this was happening in the first place.
