Here is my computer that I just built http://pcpartpicker.com/b/Asx

I had overclocked it at 44 multiplier and left the voltage offsets alone.

Here it is at idle http://s22.postimage.org/foic29bep/idle.jpg

Here it is with prime95 http://s18.postimage.org/vjspds015/prime95.jpg

It ran good then blue screened so I move the offset +.015

Here it is at idle http://s1.postimage.org/ge94ciwr3/idle1.jpg

Here it is with prime95 http://s22.postimage.org/dmmg1r2td/prime951.jpg

The voltages are lower and it runs about 10C cooler in prime95.

Is this better or worse then it was before? Do I need more voltage and should change it to - offset or is this ok?

Also, I messed around with LLC and it wasn't very stable with voltage drooping so I leave it on auto.

Also, the mghz stock was 103 and I changed that to 100.

The ram I have is 2133 but was set one lower so I raised it back to stock


As for my GPU setup, I have 2 Sli GTX 660's (non-ti). I also messed around with 3dmax11, turning vsync on/off and testing.

This was my best run http://s17.postimage.org/rh69s0nfz/sli_gpu_non_oc.jpg

The GPU's are not overclocked yet. Do I need to raise the Vram only or what direction do I take with overclocking and reducing any bottle necking?

When I overclock the cards does it automatically do both of them? I haven't looking into overclocking gpus yet just build me computer.

Any help would be great, thanks

If you really don't know the answer to this then you need to read some overclocking guides.

I'd recommend using MSI afterburner for overclocking the GPU's, this program has an option to apply the overclock to both GPU's which I recommend you use.

Your other questions should be easily answered in any good GPU overclocking guide.

Have a look on google.

Well of course it's better than before if you're using less volts and it's 10C cooler... :heink:

When overclocking your GPU's I recommend using EVGA Precision X. That's what I use for my GTX 660 Ti. I had two of them at one time and it automatically overclocks both of them.
