^^ Very well. I will do some extensive testing. I have my original BIOS saved and the first BIOS I modified so I can flash back to either one with zero problems if I encounter issues.

I'll start looping Heaven now.

Yep, a 1293MHz boost limit is too much for this little card in all things. Now I'm using a BIOS set 1163MHz boost with a 1267.5 limit. That passed 1 hour looping Valley and 1 hour of looping the latest Heaven bench. I'm seeing 1175MHz most often in games.

I may try tweaking it a little more later. I dropped it from a 1293 max to 1267 and haven't tested anything higher yet.

Good results i must say, 1267 is a good clocking card. try 1280. smile.gif and try it in games

I just flashed in a 1280MHz boost limit. Now it's doing up to 1189MHz. It passed two loops of Heaven and Valley like that. I'll hammer it well with those two benches and games when I have more time later.

Yungbenny911 blackRott9 is talking about the boost limit (table), not the boost clock.
With 1293 Boost limit in table and 1175-1175 mV I have so far steady 1189 Mhz boost clock (rising from 1037 Mhz automatically), but I increased the min power limit to 139000 mWt to have the full advantage of the boost clocks. One can see the proper limit in software power monitoring - if you are hitting 102% at your power limit setting in 3d application, it means your card is screaming for more, the most power needing so far were firestrike and crisis 3.

hey guys,

I am considering to pick up another gtx 660 soon because I want to use triple monitor set up.
Does anyone have gtx 660 SLI set up with triple monitor? I want to try nvidia surround mode. I already have zotac gtx 660, so I might pick up another one to match.

I went through this same scenario but I'm SLi a GTX 660 Ti but still, the 192-bit interface @
5760 x 1080p will choke you on Very High and above settings.
the GTX 660 (non Ti) in SLi you will only be able to play on High and more than likely Medium settings.
another hindrance is the 2GB of VRAM.

just something to think about....
post #958 of 6755
So I was playing bioshock infinite and while having my card overclocked with precision my game was crashing every 5-10 minutes but once I toned it down quite a bit everything worked fine while games like Tomb Raider and Crysis 3 have no problems running with my overclocked settings. It's probably more so of how the game is optimized rather than the overclock but has anyone else tried this game yet with their overclocked settings?
post #959 of 6755
I found the best game to test Kepler overclocking is Dishonored. You could see weird textures and missing text without crashes.

Yea I'm starting to notice that issue when it comes to having an 192-bit card with 2gb vram. The 660 (none ti) overclocked is definitely a fast card but when it comes to handling AA In most games it begins to struggle however fxaa isn't too bad I suppose.confusedsmiley.png
