You dont need to run the powet target that high. Just high enough to where it wont downlock. My card out of the box boosts to 1188 when its rated at 1163 and power target is at stock +100% and it runs at 1188 constant. Ive never seen the power target higher then 92%.
Maybe it's because I have a somewhat high OC, but I've seen my power target reach 130% playing Dead Island.

To answer Finner's question further though, my card has been boosting to 1256 MHz consistently so far, but I've managed to keep it cool with my custom cooling. Highest temps I've seen so far are about 62 degrees.

What clocks are you set at atm? Is your power target set at 132%?
its set to +144 core and + 200 mem, neither of them are my maximum, just safe stable 24/7 clocks.

I run a custom fan profile to keep it below 70 when gaming but it still will not boost to its highest which is 1229 until it reaches 62 degrees.

if i leave it all at stock i think it boost to a maximum of 1084 but it has to reach 62 degrees before it will go that high, if its lower its slower

EDIT*

This is what i expect to see but mine doesnt seem to clock like the reference one TPU reviewed

Hmm, that is odd. I have mine at +145 core and its boosting to 1256. What are you using to test your boosts? It really depends on the game, I think. Some might be more GPU demanding than others. Might want to try something like EVGA's OC Scanner. Using their tessy test seems to be good at testing maximum clocks.

Ive been playing BF3 and my card maxes at 1188, thats not overclock either, just out of the box.

Just used OC scanner to get my card to plot and used Afterburner to plot it, each screen is taken when the speed changes, showing the speed/voltage and temperature.

All at stock

Initial boost,



Next step up



Max it boosts to, notice its at 62 degrees



And then the normal throttle when it hits 70 degrees



Do you think flashing my card with another BIOS would make it boost in the normal way? i have read about a certificate built into the firmware so dont know if flashing works on the 680's

From what I'm seeing that's perfectly normal (I think). It boosts to 1084 MHz until it hits 70 degrees, throttles to cool down, then boosts again.

If you want to keep it at 1084 boost all the time you're gonna have to find a way to keep it under 70 degrees. That way it won't throttle and stay at the 1084 boost.

I'll try to get some screenshots of mine in action as well.

EDIT: Here it is.

As you can see its staying at my boost clocks consistently. Temperatures are rising but it peaks at 59 degrees.

ahhh thanks for that, i was under the impression that it should boost the highest at the lowest temp but yours boost and then boosts a little higher when it gets a little hotter just like mine does.

Mine does stay below 70 i turned the fan down the get to that temp so i could show it throttle.

Have you let yours go to 62 or above and see if it boosts another 13Mhz like mine does?

How have you got the bars to stay on showing the different values? i could make an all in one graph like yours if i can figure that out

I use EVGA Precision X to log my results. It creates an .hml file which I use Rivatuner to open and create the graph. Just click whatever points you want and it'll create the bars for you. :)

Here is my GPU running the OC Scanner tessy test. Highest temp I could reach was 65 degrees. At 65 degrees I was still pushing 1245 MHz boost.

I have an EVGA GTX-680 card with an i7-3960 processor, 32 GB of quad-channel RAM. When I play videos, I see an occasional (1 every second or so, sometimes more often) horizontal line that look like a break between the upper part of the image and the lower part, as if the video processor can't keep up with 1920 x 1080. I have not encountered this with older cards. What is wrong? It appears that the card is skipping a line in different parts of frames. It is totally unacceptable performance. I don't know if they call this shearing or what. I just played the video on my wife's computer which has a $200 video card that is 5 years old, and the problem does not occur. This sounds like a catastrophic design flaw.

What you're describing is tearing. You're going to have to enable v-sync for your video player in the NVIDIA control panel. You can access it by going to Manage 3D Settings, clicking the program settings tab, adding your video player and enabling it from there.

It's using Windows Media player which is already listed in the 3D settings menu.

I'm quite impressed with the overclocking ability of this GTX 660M. It runs really cool too. Anyone else rocking a newer kepler based mobile gpu?

Are all high-end video cards of all brands subject to this problem? It doesn't occur on my old video card, which is a Radeon.

All are susceptible to tearing in games, but I've personally never had it happen to me so noticeably in videos before my 680.

Is v-sync enabled in the scroll down menu? If not enable it and see if that works.

I've never had the problem on my 680 or 670s. Not even in flash videos either.

Congrats on the new card! Is it ok to show the last picture with the serial of the card? Just in case you have to RMA it someday? Unless you already registered it. Total noob at these things so please don't kill me if I'm wrong. :)

I found the vertical sync menu and turned it on. That fixed the scrolling problem, where rippling was occurring, but it did not change the tearing.

Hmm. Have you tried another video player? I personally use VLC. Might want to try that out and see if it fixes your problem.

I'll run some benchies on my lil' 660M heheh. I've been playing with it the past day OC'ing. It has really surprised me with its' power. It is competing with the gtx 670m but uses a lot less power, and runs way cooler.

I'll post some screenshots this afternoon. Thx for adding me!
