Thanks for the help, mt EVGA 660 will arrive next week

any tips to get a good OC ??

Afterburner or evga precision ?? I want to reach a clock of 1080 no boost smile.gif

I wanna start overclocking but I cant cause temps are already out of controll. bottom card hangs around 70c while the top is reaching 79c!!!!

I have tried rearranging my fans in case to no avail. I really dont wanna send them back to newegg wait a week for refund then order the MSI ones. Eh I read in the review of the card that it does get hotter than the GK104's im use to but it still bothers me.

Evga precision is the right way to go IMO.

For 24/7 overclock, check your max boot clock at stock clocks first in Heaven (keep details documented), then over-volt the GPU with the available Modding Software. After flashing it to 1.212mv, run Heaven in windowed mode on max settings 1080p Extreme tess @ stock clocks and 150% TDP for about 10 mins, to see if your card loves the new volt or hates it biggrin.gif.

If your card loves it and you get up to 1254 Mhz Max boost clock smile.gif, keep adding +20Mhz on your card's core-clock with Evga precision, and run heaven for 10-15 minutes for each 20 Mhz you add, until you get a driver crash, screen freeze or artifact on the screen.

Then take it down by 10Mhz decrements, run Heaven for another 5 mins atfter ever -10Mhz.. If you go through the first five minutes without a crash, keep it running for the next 15 minutes. If no crash still, then you have your 24/7 core clock wink.gif, but now it's time for the memory clock tongue.gif

Take your core clock to stock, and increase your card to +300 on the memory and 150% TDP, run heaven at max settings, x8AA, Extreme tess for 10 minutes and really really watch closely for artifacts. If you don't see any after after running +300 for 10 minutes, add another +50 and run that for another 10, if no driver crash or artifacts, add another and keep at it until something happens, then go down by -40 and you should be fine on your memory clock 24/7.

Now run both memory and core-clock at the max you got for each together in heaven for 30 mins, if it's a successful run, you got yourself a 24/7 overclock thumb.gif; however; if you still have a crash within the 30 mins run, reduce the memory clock -20 or more, most times it's the cause for crashes form what i experience with both my cards.

hahaha, come on now? don't hate me hehe devil-smiley-019.gif.

Actually you are kinda wrong when you say they run hotter than then gk 104. Watch the temps in this video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Iy5478lBais. 660 in SLI are even lower in temps than a single 660ti and 670, then in SLI you have the 670's going up to 83c while the 660 are at 74c. This was an Open test bench, so i can imagine what those 670's will be doing in a case like your 200r. Probably devil.gif.

You might need to spend a little money on a new Mid tower soon if you want better cooling on your cards, or you can return your 660's and get the MSI like i have, but i think that would not really help much with your temps. My 600t is not the best PC case out there, but it gives enough room, plus good cable management for better airflow.

Stable overclock with stock voltage:

The full boost is 1150mhz, cant go more than that.
Memory at 1603 is fine biggrin.gif
1080p:


1680x1050 (rules from top 30 heaven benchmarks)


Nice results biggrin.gif
I will try to get more memory clock at stock voltage without crashing biggrin.gif

cheers.gif Nice results at Stock!. But i wonder why recent users are skeptic about over-volting their cards redface.gif. I ran into some issues when i was modding but that was my fault and i had zero information about what i was doing tongue.gif, there is no way you can fatally destroy your card, every issue i have seen in bios flashing always has a fix, it's called "re-flashing" winksmiley02.gif.

I just want someone with similar GPU to beat my scores already! I don't like being the only one with a card close to 660 ti's redface.gif. It'll be cool to at least have someone else that can assist in fighting the 660 ti vs 660 war for me hehehe devil-smiley-019.gif

I have fear of burn the memory chips... they get veeery hot in stress + overclock.
Just for experience, I touch one of the chips during the unigine heaven, OMG, VERY HOT!
Maybe is nice buy some heatsinks to the memory chips \o/

My last totally stable overclock at 1.1750v:

Best stable clocks at 1.1750v

EDIT: not stable, artefacts comes up frown.gif
I will down clock the memory.

So I decided to take apart my GPU's and add some PK-1 paste to it, in an attempt to lessen such horrid temps here are my results:

Before:
GPU1 - 79c

GPU2 - 74c


After:
GPU1 - 69c

GPU2 - 64c


Thats right it dropped it an astonishing 10c each. I have always said PK-1 is great but was not expecting that much. Amazing!!! Its no twin frozer but darn good still. biggrin.gif

nice drop regardless and still might get another degree or so with the paste to cure still.
my SLi unit are the same design (N560GTX-Ti 448's) Twin Frozr III PE/OC cards and I think my top card has yet to see 65C..
so I know the Twin Frozr III N660GTX by default has to be nice too.

are your Zotac reference models.?
