Dude thats awesome! How come you didn't go with the Lightning though? Was the price difference rediculous? Are you going to unlock it and max that sucker out?

that's the lower facto clocked MSi card he ordered.
the Lightning was $50 but sold out at the time I looked.
there is a dual fanned overclocked eVGA all black model that looks killer though.

HELP! Hey guys, I have a problem and need your help: I followed the method exactly on the front page to flash the BIOS on my EVGA 660 FTW Signature 2 2GB to the modded BIOS with voltage of 1.212. It worked exactly as shown and described on the front page. However, now the Nvidia driver crashes constantly when doing anything video related: Running any gpu benchmark,. the nVidia hair demo, even just trying to play a video file. I have tried re-installing the nvidia driver (Clean install method), deleting the device (gpu) completely from windows device manager then restarting and re-installing drivers, updating drivers, nothing works. Regardless of which nvidia driver i use it crashes. By crashes I mean as soon as i start any graphics related process/task, the screen freezes for a second, then goes black, then returns to desktop with a notification on system tray saying the nvidia driver crashed and restarted. HELP!! I have put Precision X back on stock settings, I have even closed precision x completely, along with all the other driver re-install/uninstall methods mentioned previously. Nothing fixes this! Please someone, anyone, help me! If I could flash back to stock BIOS I would try that but I didn't realize the stock BIOS I saved using the front page BIOS mod method is no longer the stock BIOS and I have no other back up. Thanks in advance!
post #2224 of 6751
It will be ok, we'll get you back up...lol...firstly you need to see what is causing your crashing, use Precision X to adjust voltages and speeds to find where you are stable at, once you know that you can mod the BIOS again and re-flash, or there is an online database of stock BIOS's if you prefer

What is your voltage, power, and max boost shown on precision x?

Man I have been afraid so bad to go 660 sli and have weird stuttering. I know plenty of you guys run sli in here and say its great but are there weird tuning issues? I dont game often so dont wanna spend time troubleshooting sli issues. Im tempted to return my 660 and get a 770 but I know a 660 sli will kick its butt. I mainly play bf3 and will be playing bf4. Otherwise its games that a single 660 handles well.

It wasnt sold out where i live, and they still have a lot, but it's not worth it to me, i've never had a "lightening" GPU, but i have always had luck with the chips i buy, hopefully this one loves to overclock like a monster biggrin.gif

These were the only things that stood out between the lightening and the G series.... "not really worth it, IMO" Msi knows that "regular people" would buy the lightening, because it has their "unlocked bios" tongue.gif.... But if you are an enthusiast like myself, you don't need the lightening... There is always a bios unlock for higher voltage wink.gif, and btw, i can flash the lightening's bios and have a lightening myself biggrin.gif

Voltage in Prec.X keeps defaulting to 975 when I restart the computer. I raised it to 1150 but didn't help. I set Power at 100% and core and mem clocks at +0 still didnt help
post #2229 of 6751
Try putting voltage to 1.212, power to 130%, and setting a negative number on the GPU clock offset. Something like -30.

After that, try running a benchmark and look at your graphs in precision x, see what clock the gpu core is maxing out at.

Oh, and keep an eye on the temp. The gpu likes to auto downclock itself (sort of a safe mod) when it reaches 70C or so.

Can you attach your bios to a zip file ? Let me take a look at it, i believe the power target makes the GPU boost to extremely high clocks that's why it crashes, i'll help you modify it
