I don't think it offers much overclocking and it's quite the low end card. A full cover block would likely cost near the cost of the card itself.
You'd be better off buying a 660 or 660ti and running it on air until you can afford a block for it, if they even make full cover blocks for those cards.
first off, no, I don't think they make full cover
blocks for GTX 660. maybe
some rare ones for the reference 660-Ti. In any case, the temps won't be limiting anyone with anything under a 670 and they're cool enough so that you can get away with a dual fan design like ASUS (or else) does.. They're limited by the core or the VRM, not quite sure which. my ASUS 660 spaz out after a low overclock (+30 core and +100 VRAM is the max I seem to be able to push it and stay 100% stable).
I would highly
suggest saving more for the higher end cards. If you game, you'll probably be very disappointed with a 650. It's just not powerful enough. The next step, the GTX660, isn't quite powerful enough to max everything out that came after 2011. Considering the price of them (about 250$ here), going SLI would cost at least 500$. For $100 to $200 more, you can get a single card that completely blows them away, consumes runs at about the same clocks, and is about as cool as them (the GTX780).
Don't buy 650 unless you have a very specific reason to. Being impatient is not a valid answer.
Wait more, save your money, and get yourself a 780 or a 670. No point buying a 680 because 670 can overclock enough to catch up, and the 770 is almost a "fraud". it's a rebranded 680 with boost 2.0 on it. The gap is so huge that you can't even begin to catch up the 780 by overclocking. It looks like it's intended.
