I have had a MSI 660ti PE 2gb for ~4y on the wife's computer, and it's starting to show it's age on the newer games, so i took it apart for it's 1st thorough clean and re-TIM and temps dropped by around ~20c. All this time it has been at stock, so 1097mhz-1241mhz/6008mhz so i took the opportunity to OC it a little, ended up with +0v 114% +65 +600 (voltage, power limit, core, mem respectively), so it boosts to 1306mhz/7204mhz on stock voltage 1.175v (ASIC is 86.6% if anyone is wondering) at 72c with Heaven on loop 2h 1080p max settings. This is with zero throttling and i'm positive that it can go further if i pump the voltage because neither core or mem threw up artifacts yet. I have had an Arctic Accelero Hybrid III-140 lying around for months that i never got to use that i wanted to install if possible which will further help with temps.
Question time: i ran out of room TDP wise. If you refer to the 1st screenshot - modding the BIOS will only raise the total GPU power, the "normalized" will work as if nothing was changed, anything extra on the voltage or clocks or a very GPU intensive game will hit 98%+ and it starts to throttle. Is there a way around this or a hardmod for this card ?
