If you get too hot but want to go higher, look into a better cooler. Keep laying with the bios and learn it. Know what each term is and what it does and what it will do if you change it. It's hard to write a guide on that except in general terms as all CPUs and boards are different. Some CPUs will overclock much better than others. That is from the manufacturing process. If you follow the general guidelines you will find your limit, whether it is your CPU's limit or the Temp limit. The CPU's limit, there is nothing you can do unless you want to buy another one hoping it will be better. If it is a temp limit, you can get a better CPU cooler. Try the Validation and go to the Overclocking leader boards on this Forum. You will learn a lot and have some fun. But be warned, we are all a little crazy there, some more than others. Also be warned, overclocking can become an obsession.

As far as the card, go by the link ganjiry posted on the 670. The 660 TI is basically the same and it should work for your card as well. MSI Afterburner is a good program, I have an EVGA Card and their utility is called Precision X. But, it is basically the exact same thing as most utilities are. Set you a custom fan profile. If your card is not loud and the noise it makes does not bother you, set an aggressive profile. Keep temps below 70 if at all possible. These cards throttle begining at 70. A good test to run is Ungine heaven V4.0. use their preset of extrene and run it. But, again watch your temps. That can be your guide as to how well you're doing. Then we also have a post your Heaven scores thread ( http://www.sevenforums.com/pc-custom...rk-scores.html) At the beginning of the thread all scores were with Heaven 3.0, somewhere in the middle they came out with V 4.0 which is a little harder, so you may want to start at the end and work backward. Another good utility similar to CPUz for graphics cards is GPUz. It just gives you a lot of information about your card.

We'll still be here as long as you need us. That's what we do. and don't worry about asking questions. The only dumb question is the one you don't ask.

EDIT: I just used bing and found this. How to overclock the 660 with Afterburner.


Thanks brother! I will try to see if I can push a little more from my processor.
