I'm planning on running SLI and assumed MSI should match MSI? That is, unless I am mistaken and EVGA and MSI will play nice with each other.

Should work fine. Im just waiting for the 1080's to come out then Ill pass down my 780's to my kids and sell their 660ti's.

If you need one sooner than later though at least you have a few more options in your search.

Unfortunately, for myself, I am too OCD to have mismatched cards for SLI lol. I already have an MSI 3GB and am "stuck" per-se with looking for another one--at the right price, of course.

Dammit, sometimes (often), I annoy myself. A lot.

Yeah, tested both cards by themselves extensively and turns out it was some sort of weird power issue with only one of them (thinks it's being throttled despite plenty of power/cooling, stays stuck in power saving mode). Surprisingly managed to get a RMA for the card that had the power throttling issue. It was originally a RMA replacement so I didn't think that was possible, but Asus let me send it in anyways. Hope it all works out. Definitely want to keep the matching Asus OC 660ti SLI until next gen comes out, since (before the power issue) that setup allowed me to play everything 1080p, 60fps, and maxed settings just fine.

After a year and having tried several cards, I returned to an 660ti just for the fact that they are cheap nowadays and this is an HTPC now.
However this doesn't mean I don't wanna OC it to the max biggrin.gif

Having learned my lesson since last time I ended up here after already having bought an Asus card , this time I went for the people's favourite, the MSI Power Edition.

However I am really disappointed with the results frown.gif The card seems like a complete dud. Even though the ASIC is decent (75%) the card seems to stop at 1202mhz with 1.175v and 1241mhz with 1.212v. I think these numbers are really low.... my old Asus would do 1293 at 1.175v...

Another thing is the power limit. Since last time I learned here the hard way that you need to hardmod those cards. However having later successfully softmodded several cards even Kepler ones (a couple 680s, an 670 and more) I thought the 660ti situation could be softmodded too, I just hadnt done everything correctly.

Well looks liek I was wrong and spesifically the 660ti does need a hardmod (the only kepler core that behaves this way?), as even if I sucessfully up the power limit, the card throttles at 90% TDP, so this must be a hard limit and it totally ignores software (correct?).

Well, at least this power edition can up the voltage of memory and it does +500 stock and about +650 with +vmem. But I am seriously disappointed at the core OC, it's not like it's "only 1254" , I would live with that, but 1202???? ***

Hey guys. I just overclocked a 660ti, and it is basically smooth, not very impressive. Problem is that MSI Afterburner isn't able to apply the profile consistently when opening/playing 3D applications. It sometimes just runs as if it was idling and I have to press the hotkey to load the profile every time this happens. Quite annoying, so has anyone experienced this, or can you point me to the right place to problem solve my issue? (Tested with various settings: no forced voltage/no profiles/no 2D/3D profiles/No restore after suspend etc.)

Thanks! =)

After quite a bit of time, I managed to RMA my Asus 660ti's and get them replaced. They sent me a 3gb version for the first one that had the power throttling issue, but that ruined my SLI setup, so I requested a trade-in for the other one. They then sent me a Strix 960 4GB that was basically new-in-box except it had been opened on the outside. I requested a trade-in for the first replacement, not really knowing what to expect, managed to get a second Strix 960 4GB, still factory sealed. Considering I spent a total of $400 for the 2 original 660ti's ($300 on the first when it was new, $100 for the 2nd a year before I joined this forum), used them for several years, and managed to trade up...I'm pretty stoked. Yay for another RMA success story. biggrin.gif
