Gigabyte GTX660 OC, 1150MHz boost normal?

So I currently own a Gigabyte GTX660 OC which I bought about half a year ago and I'm wondering why it clocks up to 1150MHz on load although its advertised to have a 1098MHz boost clock? Also I can get it up to 1250 MHz and 1215MHz stable with max temp of 65°

    Those are some very good clock numbers. It's very common for your Turbo Boost frequency to be considerably higher than the manufacturer's rating. The manufacturer's listing is sort of the guaranteed minimum Boost, while real-world applications can be much higher. It seems like you got a good card with good overclocking and cooling capabilities.

    Say, if I would buy a second card by Gigabyte and it wont have the same boost clock, can I adjust the speed from the cards individually to match the same clock speed? because afterburner doesn't seem to have that function

    With SLI, the clock speeds will adjust automatically to match the speed of the lower clocked card. After that, you can overclock them in tandem from that baseline.
