A other idea is to try and keep the temps as low as possible biggrin.gif http://www.overclock.net/t/1203528/official-nvidia-gpu-mod-club-aka-the-mod

Thanks for the info. I'm not sure if I want to do all that and with water-cooling yet...lol..I just don't understand why these cards are set up to undervolt and downclock at such low temps. 70C for these cards isn't hot. Mine with a original BIOS and overclock with stock 1.175v gets up to 68C and with any modded BIOS it will likely hit the 70C mark and then it's kinda useless if I can't keep a steady clock and voltage.

Here is a good question. At 70C I get a voltage drop from 1.175v to 1.162v with my core clock staying the same until 80C. If I modify the BIOS and set it to 1.200v what will happen once it hits 70C? Will it go down to 1.162v like it's doing now or drop to the next lowest of 1.187v?

Use precision or afterburner to make the fan run faster at a lower temp - that will negate the throttling issues until somebody "cracks the code" in the firmware and we understand which values need to be changed in order to do what you wish.

I just set my fan to hit 60% at 60C, and 75% at 70C, and the card never gets over 68C, usually sits around 65C now. I know it's a *little* bit louder to go this route on most cards, and I don't like using extra software either, but for now it works thumb.gif

I already have mine already set to 75% for 50C and under and 50C and over it's 100%. My fans are VERY quiet so I don't mind the aggressive curve but even at 100% fan I still hit 68C with my overclock

Damn, I thought the coolers on those Asus cards was supposed to be pretty darn good based on all of the reviews I read before making up my mind - however I know they dump their heat INTO the case as opposed to out the back of the case - perhaps you could get more intake and exhaust through your case, bringing in fresh cool air and exhausting the hot air is essential to those types of coolers working well.

I got my FTW because I plan to run SLI soon and exhausting all that hot air out the back of the case was important... but honestly the cooler on those DCII's is supposed to be really good, provided they get plenty of fresh air into the case - and the hot air out. Perhaps replace the TIM on the GPU and see if that helps, but it looks to me like that case of yours doesn't have very good airflow - Do you have two 120mm intakes and one 120mm exhaust on that? If that is all, I'd get some beefy fans if you can't afford a better case for now. Look for some with 65+ CFM for some nice airflow thumb.gif

I have great airflow, like three 120MM, one 130MM ect...if I leave it at stock clock and memory I get like 60C so the ASUS cards are great but remember I'm overclocked too at 1228mhz core and 6800mhz memory

Yeah I know it's overclocked... it's just that most people don't see more than a 1 or 2 degree rise in temps with the volt modded BIOS - maybe 5 at most - I thought it was odd to see that your temps went up a good 10C even after raising the fan speed by over 10%

Maybe somebody else can chime in, who knows the 660 ti's better - but that seems off for any 6xx series card to get that much hotter from OCing it, even if it's volt modded.

I don't know about that, going from 1.175v to 2.212v will definitely raise the temp more then what you say.

So I'm a liar?

I'm just trying to help out in letting you know that a 10C rise in temps is not at all normal especially with a 20-25% increase in fan speed!

But it's fine if you want to call me out, I don't speak without having support for my opinions, as you can see above.

I also have my own experience to go off of with my modded BIOS on my 670, and I'm telling you that your temp increase seems a bit high and can probably be remedied easily if you'd even care to believe that your temp increase is an outlier amongst 6xx series cards here on OCN. thumb.gif
