Another great factory overclocked GTX 660Ti that exceeds expectations.
The Gigabyte GTX 660Ti OC already came with a pretty decent overclock from the factory, and if the ASUS GTX 660Ti DurectCUII TOP was anything to go by, that meant that there wasn’t much room left for further overclocking. Indeed the maximum I achieved on the core clock was 1068MHz and 6235MHz on the memory. Anything higher and the card would crash out on multiple benchmarks. With this 3.3% core clock and 3.7% memory clock speed increases, the benchmarks barely yielded more than 2 fps across all the games.
Noise & Temperature
The Gigabyte GTX 660Ti OC’s massive Windforce heatsink comes into play with amazing prowess, as the GPU is pretty much unheard throughtout the testing, whether on idle or under load.
As you can see, not only are temperatures respectably low, but the low RPM on the huge fans result in whisper quiet operations.
The Gigabyte GTX 660Ti OC Version is an great card on its own, just by virtue of the cool temperatures and extremely quiet operations during load. Sure, it doesn’t come with a copy of Borderlands 2, or anything else for that matter (except an extra power cable), but at the end of the day if what you need is a great performing card from the factory, with a decent (3 years) warranty for a reasonable price, then the Gigabyte GTX 660Ti OC is definitely one to check out.
