this modded bios gave me more trouble than benefits redface.gif
with normal bios im holding on 1150 GPU clock,thats decent,
and i hope when my new fan arrives the temps would drop so the card wont throttle as much.
Wait for your fan to come and try again.. It should be better ^^

(Iknow - this is OCN!) But I'm not looking to break any records, just want to be quick and stable. biggrin.gif

System Specs in SigRig.

Congrats, good card ! thumb.gif
It depends on you. If you think this is ok, just leave things as they are. You can give it a try though, it's harmless smile.gif

Do you notice micro-stutter much? I saw it on an ATI rig and it was horrible. Haven't' witnessed it on SLI yet, not since they've really worked things out for SLI anyway.

My rig in 3dmark11 benching outperforms a titan, the titan is stock and NOT sli. I get about 150 more points then the titan with my evga gtx660 sc sli at 1775mhz core and about +375mhz memory.

Check my g allery for the proof of my sli gtx 660´s outperform titan in 3dmark 11 cause the pic i showed here is kind of small.

Hello all, I was wondering what the best drivers for this card (EVGA) are???? I just got mine and installed the latest drivers from EVGA's site (327.23) and I've gotten driver crashes twice in the three hours it's been installed.... hoping it's a driver issue, I don't really want to RMA it (who ever does). ANY help is greatly appreciated smile.gif
post #2985 of 6752

Driver crashes are rarely driver related, especially if you are using WHQL-certified drivers. Looks to me like you have a bad card, but start the RMA process and EVGA will walk you through testing it to verify. They have very good warranty support, so you are in good hands.

WHQL's are sucky - have had nothing but bad luck with them. Please do yourself a favor and try the 326.19 Beta before RMA'ing. And please post back if it helps.
post #2987 of 6752
Thank you for the quick replies.... the more I'm reading it seems the SC has had a lot of problems like mine. I've downloaded 314.22 as I've seen that this is common to the 32x.xx drivers and I'm downloading the latest Beta as well, going to do a fresh install of my OS and keep my fingers crossed before RMA'ing the card. Had some pretty high hopes for this one :/
post #2988 of 6752
I unfortunately had issues with the 660 SC as well - turned out is was definitely a bum card. Mine hardlocked no matter what drivers I used. Thankfully Amazon was easy to deal with, and I went for the 660 FTW Sig2, and haven't had a single problem since. Yeah - I had had high hopes as well, and they were dashed. But I'm happy with this one - gonna get another for sli! biggrin.gif

Of course, I hope you can remedy the problem without all that hassle... thumb.gif

Looking for a good GPU for new system.
Very interested in the GTX 660.

- What do you people think about the MSI GTX660 non-overclocked TwinFrozer III?

I personally prefer the non factory overclocked version, and I don't plan on overclocking or pushing the card to its limits.
I only want to game at 1080p, playing titles like League of Legends, StarCraft2, and Diablo3.
And maybe some newer games that have yet to be released.

Other cards I had in mind: GTX 760, Radeon HD 7870.

Hey, I'm trying to overclock my Gigabyte GTX 660 but when I write kgb.exe 660.rom unlock it shows all things but don't show voltage.
