I've got en eVGA GTX 660 SC running stock and plan to try the bios change to squeeze some more performance out of it. So far, I am happy with stock performance though. biggrin.gif:D

i have FTW but its on 1178-1180 out of box instead of 1137 as it should be smile.gif
3570k/3770k is not much to overclock and not on stock cooler. if you want to oc you will need a custom cooler, tough if i wanted to oc, i would take i5 2500k or i7 2600/26700k as these can go very high and generate lower temperatures. i guess intel saw how well sandy was able to oc, so they neutered ivys temp characteristics. i guess you need to oc these sandy/ivy bridge only if you go SLI/crossfire for single gpu i dont believe you need to OC the cpu at all

best

I already have money saved up for them tongue.gif... Just waiting for Nvidia to release them and take my money already! (if they are worth it) smile.gif
1. My GPU Overclocked to 1293MHZ never goes above 69c... I have not seen 70c ever. So without overclock, i can guess 60c below...

2. You do not need to overclock your 3770k if all you do is game, but it's a "K" Intel processor, so it's made to be overclocked biggrin.gif. It would be a waste of money if you don't overclock that processor, Mine is sitting at 4.8 GHZ wink.gif

3. I am saying you should un-install it, and don't install it again. The drivers should work fine for you. The only thing Lucid Virtu does that is actually beneficial is that it gives you the ability to use the Intel 4000 GPU for video rendering. Since your Monitor is 60HZ ONLY. There will be no Magical Software that would make it go above that. Whether you get 80FPS or 120FPS, all you would see would be 60fps. Trust me, i have had virtu also, and i have the same MOBO as you do, it will only give you problems here and there until you take it off.

AH okay, yeah. Well I got virtu to work now but it really only works in benchmarks lol. So yeah really no need for it since it doesn't do anything for me in games. Also, After I installed the latest beta drivers, Crysis 3 MP beta won't launch anymore. It asks to change the color scheme and then it just doesn't launch. I think I'm going to install the latest non beta version.

Anytime you are installing new Nvidia Drivers, always make sure you click on custom, then check perform clean install. If you do an upgrade/update, you will end up having conflicting files. But if you perform a clean install, you will be less likely to run into Driver issues.

Many thanks to Yungbenny911 for the bios but looks like my max clocks are 1254 mhz in boost, and anything beyond that just crashes my card. I have Kboost on and having decent performance with this card quite pleased with the performance for the money I paid for it looks like I might get a second one biggrin.gif

Thanks for the tip biggrin.gif.

How much of a performance increase would I be getting with an overclocked gpu? Let's say in a game like Crysis 3 open beta? A couple frames?
