Going to clean wife's PC tomorrow so my old 660ti will get her 1st re-TIM and flash, already got the latest BIOS from TPU and was wondering if anyone has a good set of power tables to help with the overclocking, remember it being very decent with a +120 core +400 mem (original BIOS) but it was starting to TDP throttle so i just left it at stock when i switched for a 970. Did more then ok for most games so far but she's starting to show her age, so wanted to give her a little more oomph besides the shiny new coat :clap:

EDIT: Tried https://www.v3dt.com/nvidia/600/ but oddly enough only changed the bottom value, probably not meant for 660ti ?

Changed TDP + upped voltage to 1.212v and flashed just to see if it was working properly, everything seems 100%. Did a quick Heaven just to try out OC settings and i had to stop at +130/+500 because temps soared into the high 80s (really need to clean and re-TIM). Will update tomorrow after its shiny :clap:

Thanks for the update. Make sure there's lots of air flow through the case for it too, those coolers dump a lot of hot air.

Cleaning went like clockwork, TIM was completely baked in and had dust bunnies clogging even the VRMs/mem beneath the shroud (not surprising considering its around 4yo and was never cleaned), wiped it all down and replaced TIM/mem pads. Went from stock 1.115v 1241mhz/3000mhz ~85c to stock 1.212v ~70c and a very healthy 1372mhz/3600mhz ~75c OC :thup: Feels like it still has more to give if i kick voltage up another notch but would likely have to put her under water for that. Thank you Johan for all the help, this should keep the wife happy for another year or so :p
