MSI 660 TI PE Overclock Help

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
Okay so I was messing around tonight got bored and thought to myself why not just overclock my GPU.

So I fired up MSI AfterBurner and MSI Kombuster and started by just adjust ONLY the core clock .... upon reaching a boost of +105 I noticed some artifacts to I then backed it down to +100.

I then thought well maybe i should just increase the power limit ( my card might be peaking out ) and so I did .... This is where it all kinda falls apart.

Upon increasing the power voltage increase even by just +1 you can see from the pics that clock speed returns to the stock 1019Mhz and the voltage drops...... I found this odd so i bumped it back down to +0 on power limit and BOOM it all starts working again.... add +1 to limit and it quits......

I'm really at a loss here so any help would be great

If you'd bothered to try my short-cut guide, and really understood how the 660 ti is overclocked, you'd get somewhere with your efforts. (Hint: you must max out THE POWER LIMIT.)
