Today we have the second iteration of Nvidia's pared down Turing Die the GTX 1660, this one is the Gaming X from MSI. After the initial Turing launch and pricing many felt it was a steep price to pay for the new architecture, Nvidia answered with their GTX line of Turing based GPUs. They don't have the Tensor cores or Ray Tracing but do include many of the new Turing features which were covered in our GTX 1660 Ti review.

Nice. I'm thinking the 1660 and the Ti version would made for nice ITX build cards.

Max power limit, temp limit, and using default core volt, trying to duplicate Johan45 results, but falling short:
Increase +131 on the GPU core = boost speed of 1991 MHz (not 2085 goal).
GDDR5 memory was also overclocked +742 = 2372 MHz clocks (good, goal was 2371).
Guess its the silicon?

Increase CPU core to +155 and OC mem +742 with this result: 2015 MHZ boost, 2453 MHZ mem, 1685 MHZ gpu clock.

That's still respectable like you said not all samples OC the same plus drivers can affect the limits as well I have found
