Looking to overclock my MSI GTX 660

I know this card comes pre-overclocked, but I was told I could do it farther. I've never overclocked anything before, so I was hoping someone could give me stable overclocking afterburner settings for my PC.

System specs:
OS: Windows 7 (64-bit)

Hard drive: Seagate ST31000528AS 1TB Hard Drive

RAM: 8GB (Crucial Ballistix Sport 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600)
CPU: Intel Core i7 CPU 930 @ 2.8GHz

Graphics Card: MSI GTX 660 (MSI N660 TF 2GD5/OC GeForce GTX 660 2GB 192-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP)

PSU: Corsair AX850 (850w)

  1. Instead how about you overclock your cpu.
  2. Like I said, I've never overclocked before so I figured overclocking the gpu was best and safest. Especially since I have a program that will do it for me and I dont have to mess with the bios.


    Don't...

  3. well read up chum...


    the oc on that thing will show about 1/4 the benefit of overclocking the cpu

    google it and read up a little bit a couple days/ a week however long it takes you to feel comfortable then if you have further questions come and ask

    Or if you insist on a simple gpu clock then sure here is how you can do it

    download MSI afterburner here...

    http://event.msi.com/vga/afterburner/download.htm

    instal it to the computer.

    move the sliders right little by little and test. run Kombuster

    it comes in the same folder as afterburner. Confirm check on google for the specific thermal limit on your card then using combuster make sure the temps never pass that limit as it might cause damage.
    Voltage controls are available by clicking settings at the bottom right of afterburner.
    More questions than what I provided?
    Please provide the details and I or someone else will help you.

    Also do not bump posts. I don't care but the mods will say not to as it is a forum rule I guess.
  4. Alright, I will look into that. Thank you.

  6. oc on these 6xx NVidia gpu's isn't a simple task either. cant go very far with them without a bios mod.
