Yeah, they max out around 41*C now which is really nice. Unfortunately they don't SLI well, driver crashes if I push past 1250 or so while they will run 1402 and 1397 respectively by themselves. Oh well, its plenty fast the way it is.

Hey guys do you have power throttling issues ? Because my new gtx 660 msi twin frozr iii''s power throttles down while gaming from 100-11% to 40-60% resulting in cutting my fps in half. Can you tell me a fix for this?

Did you use afterburner or the like to turn the power target up as high as it will go?
post #624 of 6761
yes i did. also some textures on my browser are purple instead of black. i dont know if it is related to my post but if anyone have seen this before please tell

Could be VRM temps, I know my TFIII 7950 didn't have adequate cooling on them. What raidmax model PSU do you have?
post #626 of 6761
my gpu's temps while gaming are between 50-65.
psu: Raidmax ATX12V Power

the worst throttling i've encountered is in games like Far Cry 3, Assassins Creed 3, Crysis 3, Borderlands 2 and Skyrim. I would mention The Amazing Spiderman Game but that has such a horrible optimization im not even bothering playing it.

have you tried running them on different clocks on SLI?, and also try looking for an updated bios from your manufacturer... If they can do 1402/1397Mhz on their own, they should both be able to do at least 1306 in Sync. And also try different drivers to see if it persists, start from the 3xx.xx drivers and go upwards, but make sure you do clean installs.

Have you flashed your bios?, and are you using the updated version?

Probably doesn't have anything to do with your issue but I can't think of a Radimax 500W PSU that I would want anywhere near my system. Or even in my house, I'm not a fan of fires. Even the more "upscale" units are just basic rebadged Andyson supplies that are not very good.

They do run in asymmetrical clocks but the scaling sucks. Interestingly enough, there is less screen tearing and better frame times when offset like that. Mostly I think the issue is with the modified BIOS I'm using, but they can't get anywhere near the current clocks with the stock BIOS.

sorry if my grammar mislead into thinking that i have 2 video card. to clarify things i only have 1 gtx 660. i think my bios has a new update available
post #630 of 6761
Yes indeed my psu is a piece of junk but it holds withouth problem. Also i almost have enough money to upgrade it to a real one : Seasonis Seasonic S12II-520.

Also i forgot to mention that for a while forcing constant voltage while gaming did solve the throttling at least for far cry 3 but now everything is back to normal
