Just got down replacing the tim with IC Diamond.



Cut it down about 5 - 6 degrees. Hoping for a little more. But whatever, was kind of fun to do something new.

i'm going to sell my 660 sli and grab myself a 770 and add a second one as soon as possible biggrin.gif
post #2316 of 6756
Hey guys, two questions:

1) I just bios-modded my two 660s from Asus (DirectCU II). Without touching the clocks in EVGAPrecisionX, I see that my gpus are running 1202 MHz on full load. Does the mod also elevates the P0 state to 1202 by default? I mean other then raising to 170% the max powerLvl and overvolting on P0. I ask this because my gpus should be running 1137 MHz on full load by default, not 1202 MHz..

2) Before the mod I've been raising the powerlevel to 110% and clocks by an offset of +130 MHz for months, with perfect stability. That used to give me 1137 + 130 = 1267 MHz without overvolting (in fact I never saw relevant power throttling).
Now, after the biosmod, if my new P0 max clock is 1202 MHz, and if I give it a +100 MHz offset (therefore a little over 1300 MHz), the video driver crashes disastrously on full load. Even at +50 MHz offset, bringing me to 1252 MHz, the driver crashed after a few minutes in Skyrim.
I actually expected to get at least 10 or 20 MHz more with this voltage. Apparently I got a worse max clock instead of a better one... Any thoughts?

Thanks in advance

I was telling all the guys in the GTX 660 Ti thread that the time to sell is now....!
with the GTX 760 coming with 256-bit interface and GTX 670 specs @ $299 and under, it's a no brainer.

but now there are conflicting data on what the GTX 760 Ti will be or renaming it to the GTX 760.

as for the GTX 660... hmm.
sad to see such a nice card get demoted again..

Demoted but still enjoyed hehe i wont be upgrading anytime soon first 47k chip.

Maybe someone already asked this, but i cannot read all 238 pages smile.gif

I have an Asus GTX 660 DC2, and i followed this guide 100%
But when i try Nvidia hair i only gets 1.1870 voltage. Its the same when i had the original bios.
I use Asus GPU Tweak to clock my Gpu, and some things have changed i can see.

Power target goes to 150% (before 110%)
I can change fan speed to 100% (before i dont know)

I can only overclock 70mhz on Gpu. (same before bios change)

Gpu temp is 57 on full load.

Do i need to get another bios? or what is my problem?

Thanks

Edit; Im starting to think my card is hardware locked. Can that be truth?

+70 on the GPU seems about right on max overclock. On memory you can go way higher. +65 has been stable for GPU overclock. I haven't modded my bios and I'm not sure if modding it is supposed to make that more stable, I think it just expands your overclocking ability.
