    GTX 1660 TI Overclocking

    So, recently I upgraded my old GTX 750 OC to a Gigabyte Windforce 1660 TI OC. I got in love overclocking my gpu and squasing all the performance out of it. (It feels really nice especially when you game on a low spec PC) So I decided to take the 1660 to it's limits. Although what I have noticed is a very big variation in the performance provided by my overclocks. (some bigger clocks would decrease performance in some cases) I've used a bunch of benchmarks to see the results I get and it got a bit confusing because values would sometimes actually decrease with the overclock. For this, I've used the base settings as an refference and 4 OC profiles in a increasing order. Profiles : Base : +0 Core Voltage 100% Power Limit Temp. Limit : 83* C +0 Core/Memory Clock OC 1 +100 Core Voltage (max) 123% Power Limit (max) Temp. Limit : 89* C (max) +120 Core Clock (setting recommended by MSI OC Scanner) +500 Memory Clock OC 2 +1000 Memory Clock OC 3 +1500 Memory Clock (I am amazed how this didn't destabilized things) OC 4 (Seeing that everything went ok so far I decided to ramp up the Core Clock to check stability and amazingly I had no problem) +130 Core Clock Benchmarks: Kombustor : (GL) msi-01 1080p - 2054 (34fps) base - 2208 (37fps) 1 - 2201 (37fps) 2 - 2212 (37fps) 3 - 2207 (36fps) 4 *DECREASE* (VK) Furmark-MSI 1080p - 4165 (69fps) base - 4595 (76fps) 1 - 4822 (80fps) 2 - 5188 (86fps) 3 - 5150 (85fps) 4 *DECREASE* (GL) Furmark-Donut-5200MB 1080p - 1370 (23fps) base - 1486 (25fps) 1 - 1561 (26fps) 2 - 1665 (28fps) 3 - 1666 (28fps) 4 Assassin's Creed Odyssey Benchmark 1080p/V-sync off/ FPS Limit off/ Graphic quality Very High/Adaptive quality off/AA High - 63(avg) - 23(min) - 100(max) base - 63 - 23 - 99 1 - 66 - 27 -100 2 - 63 - 25 - 90 3 - 65 -29 - 101 4 So after this results my questions are: * Can a bigger overclock decrease performance rather then increase it in some cases? * Any recommandations on a better OC configuration? * I've also run a stress test and I've noticed my Voltages decreasing and the Core clocks simulatenously slowly but I guess that's just the GPU protecting itself from overheating. Correct me if I'm wrong. * Temperatures were around 60-70* C for Kombustor Benchmarks and 55-70* C for Assassin's Creed Odyssey, so I don't think thermal throttling occurs. * The GPU is connected to a Pcie 16x 2.0 unfortunattely, along with an i7-4790 that clocks at 3.78 and 16Gb Dual-Channel DDR3 Ram. Apart from the Pcie are there any major bottlenecks? Thanks for the time you spent reading this and if you're still here you are a really good person! Peace!
  2. Hello there! I am currently running an I7-4790 (non-k) 3.6ghz on my MSI H81M-P33 V1 with 2x8Gb DDR3 1600Mhz RAM with the 1.10 version BIOS. I've seen a lot of talk around the internet of overclocking non-K CPU's and RAM with custom versions of BIOS, but I can't seem to find an solid source to offer me all the info that I'm looking for. *So firstly, if I actually manage to do this and somehow achieve my overclocking "locked" components dream, will it be worth all the fuss? *Secondly if anyone has info on this matter or suggestion I would like to hear it. *I know this topic might be stupid, but I'm just looking for more knowledge anyways.

    Here we go again (Low Steam downloads)

    Thanks for the advice and for taking some time into doing an research. I guess I'll just try an VPN.

    Sorry, forgot to mention i restarted the PC before taking the screenshot so the "start time" is actually when it continued to download. Anyways, thanks for your time I'll check for a VPN.

    Here we go again (Low Steam downloads)

    So.. Is there any way to find out if this is the case? Also torrent speeds are way faster and stable than steam, although I don't know if there's a difference between those and steam downloads.
  6. Hello there, I am writing this because of a very annoying problem that I have when downloading games from steam. I've already looked on the web for fixes and nothing seemed to work so I guess this is my last resort. Whenever I try to download games from steam my download speed hits somwhere between 3-20mb/s for a few seconds and starts droping down. I live in Romania, I tried changing the download server and everything there is to be tried on the internet. Speedtest by Ookla : Youtube : Steam:

    Keep my PC alive !

    Yeah actually the PSU was 33.84 Euros and the Ram 19.04 . As I said I'm very tired and math is so annoying when you are tired.

    Keep my PC alive !

    Hello there, I got motivated to keep my first pc alive and I'm looking for new components so: Actual specs : MB :MSI H81M-P33 Military Class IV CPU :Intel I7-4790 3.6GHZ GPU :Nvidia GTX 750PH 1GB DDR5 HDD :Toshiba 1TB 7200rpm HDD External HDD :Freecom MD Classic 3.0 500GB (Using it for stocking "miscelleanous" things xD) PSU : some weird brand 500W PSU RAM :8GB DDR3 1600Mhz 1xStick What I plan to change/add : GPU :XFX AMD Radeon RX570 RS 4GB (161.80 Euros) SSD :Kingston A400 120GB SATA III (20.09 Euros) RAM: 4GB DDR3 1600Mhz (19.04 Euros) PSU :nJoy Agon 600W 80+ (33.84 Euros) - Total Cost = 234.77 Euros - * What would you change/add? * This is the first time I'm upgrading a PC and all the options out there can get quite confusing so I decided to ask for others opinion * I'm looking to make this PC handle gaming and production tasks like FL Studio, After Effects, Photoshop for about another 3yrs at least (Going to college yay) * You can expand the budget up if there's some better option for relatively better buck for performance ratio. * I'm also into overclocking so you can take that in consideration too. * There's a possibility that sometimes in the close future I will invest in a full system(GPU,CPU,RAM,etc) water-cooling loop. * Sorry for the typing errors I'm still perfecting my English and I'm also death tired. ;( * I'm also kind of okay with 30fps 1080p gaming or even with 720/900p gaming (Low Spec Gaming for Life )
