(Tutorial) How To Overclock The GTX 660m - Basic Overclocking




What do you think about this video?

WBBAgamingTV: I Overclock it in the Nvidia Control Point

ArthaxtaDaVince777: LMAO IT WORKED, IM PLAYING OVER 34+ FRAMES ON BF3 (ULTRA) SETTING WITH MT ASUS G75VW, GTX 660M!!!!!!! THANK YOU 

Lukas Shyu'da: Is it safe for using like 2-3 hours a day?

WoketBeast: Does the overclocking stop if I close the program? Or does it work just after clicking " apply clocks & voltage" and only resets after rebooting pc/laptop.

viajer m: Hey, there is a way to trick the laptop into higher overclocking speeds without messing with the bios. The only thing that you have to do is change the overclocking values in the shortcut files.Basically when you go into properties in the NVidia ins shortcut file their is a section that says "target". That sections contains the overcloking parameters you just have to type the speed that you want. then when you open the shortcut you will see the new speed. My current clock speed is 1165, but be aware that I am using an Asus G46. Asus Republic of Gamers gaming laptops have the best cooling system in the market. My laptop, even with such as massive overclocking speed, maintains the temperature of the system at 76 degrees even when playing games like Battlefield , Tom Raider, and other graphic demanding games. 

tofsen n: Northcorolina you over heat your cpu so the game crash

Rakotoniaina Mijoro: can I have your wallpaper?

Dr.Seatbelt: no dislikes, just how this video is supost to be :)

Jeorge Go: Can i ask? What would be the outcome if i overclock my Razer Blade? Any positive and negative advice? Im afraid of burning my graphica card if im going to overclock. Thats why i need some advice. Thanks! :) When playing BF4 multiplayer 64player server In High Settings minimum fps is 24maximum is 32 then when in ultra 20-29 so its a 4 fps difference. AA off 

kop iko: can u recommend me what is max setting for gtx660m??..please reply..sory mybad englsh

jlm264: Is there a way to do the opposite and Underclock the G55VW so that the battery lasts longer?

NorthCarolina6: Hey so I just bought Far Cry 3 and I was really disappointed when I discovered I only get 20 fps on high. This is the only game that I decided I would need to overclock on so I downloaded this and did the settings that you did but FC3 crashes whenever I try to run it under those settings. What do you think I should do? I have the Lenovo Y580 and the specs are 2.4GHZ i7 3630QM processor 1920X1080p display GeForce GTX 660m 2GB 8GB RAM

Praveen Nair: How to switch between the intergrated gpu and the nvidia gtx 660m on the lenovo y580?

iiisnuts: Thank's bro good job Im neewbi in pc world and i have overcloking my gtx the same day i buy it. With 8core its realy pretty good 10/15 fps with cloking and 30 at start.

Kenny Huynh: What are the max settings that you can do on nevida inspector with your g75?

eldest221: i think it doesnt work for me lenovo Y580 win7

TheSquidNinja: I went to the website, found it, and WHERE THE freak IS THE DOWNLOAD BUTTON???

SuperCatdick: i have a asus g46 and the nvidia 660m why is it that i can run bf3 on ultra around 40fps yet some games that are worse looking i have to lower down my settings to play them normally?

Anthony Hall: I do! There's ways for further overclocking that I haven't explored yet, and not sure I will considering this seems to do it for most of my gaming :)

john yap: thank you....

Anthony Hall: The max settings I've ever used are the ones shown in this video for the 660m. Others have reported easily going +500Mhz on the memory, but I've encountered some stability issues with that. The bios is locked at the core clock to +135, although it can be fashed, which I've never done.

Muhah hahaa: The intel is doing it automaticly if you play the game.

reidsellars: Thanks!

Anthony Hall: Do you use NVidia Optimus?

iiisnuts: Sorry i forget the question. Lol I have 350 w (alim) need get better ? I think the pc burn ( lol) if i play so mutch with that. How many w i need for good working?

Vũ TuanMinh: Decrease Res 1400x900 there is not a big difference. Everything very high except Post FX (High). Mine runs greate at 29-33 fps

Anthony Hall: To be honest, I always recommend to never do something you're not comfortable with. I've overclocked mine often when playing games, but never leave it overclocked or overclock it daily. The Asus designs have incredible airflow, which is partly why it's certainly bulky; I'm not familiar with the design of the Y580 so I couldn't comment on it.

TheSquidNinja: I have the first set to 134, the second to 399. If I go 1 higher, I get some crashes and weird gliches (rays of gray tearing through the screen). The only thing I really have on ultra is geometry, everything else is on very high or high. Post FX I did have to tone down to high. I'm not sure how much ram you have or what cpu you're using, but that may contribute as well. Also make sure vsync is off (HUGE difference) and antialiasing and texture filtering isn't too high.

g00dl00kinb0i: From what I saw yesterday it kept the fps in the 40's without recording during explosions+smoke+fire, before it used to b 32-35fps, but I want to do some extensive testing today on the same map in the same spot. BTW: I use Asus G75VW and 660M I now run @ 970MHz (1085MHz Turbo mode) - core, 3010MHz - memory; As to the fps I'll tell You later today......

lasarousi: can you overclock it beyond 3.4? (which is my turbo boosted i7 ivy bridge)

TheSquidNinja: Thanks a ton, I can now run Far Cry 3 on (near) ultra settings without so much of a frame rate drop!

Phill Radvak: Hi man, i have Lenovo Ideapad Y580 and I must ask you, it's really safe? I mean it's overheating or something like that? Cuz I have this laptop for few days.. so I don't want to crash it, you know :D

Daniel Min: is this safe for a msi ge70? not the best cooling

Anthony Hall: If you're overclocking based on the tutorial, I would say you'd only need additional cooling if you're going to be playing extended sessions (lets say more than two hours at a time). And if you haven't gotten a chance to play AC3 yet on consoles I must say: it's fun >:-D I can't wait for it to come out on PC.

NorthCarolina6: @theidiotthatisme Awesome, do you think I should buy an additional cooling pad? The games that I want to play are Skyrim, Dishonored, Batman Arkham City, and Assassins Creed 3. I want to get the best experience I can without breaking my laptop.

john yap: hey Anthony i got the asus g75v i was wondering if you could teach me how to overclock my cpu intel core i7-3610QM 2.30ghz to 3.2ghz?

Tan Kian Boon: Em.....will Effect crysis3 as well?? I mean. smooth ~

VenerableLordKroak: It's probably absolutely fine, 660m is newer than 670 and is a pretty cool card, msi laptops are pretty cold and you should have no problems overclocking it. If your computer becomes very loud or hot or shuts down you should react to that and downclock it, otherwise I would say go for it!

Lars Hatfield: hey, how much did your FPS increase?

TheBLC94: The 3630 can turbo all the way up to 3.4 GHz under load but the only laptop site I know that advertises that is alienware. If you run CPU-Z with the laptop on charge n on "high performance" it should show 3.4GHz as the standard clock. And yes it is quad core. (thats what the Q in the QM bit means as far as i know)

NDogg15: Which games and which laptop?

NorthCarolina6: Hey I'm just wondering a few things. How much will this improve performance on the Y580? How long is it safe to play while overclocking? And do I need to set it back to default whenever I'm done playing? I'm completely new to pc gaming so anything would help.

KyoshoCrew: I got to say im dissapointed in this graphic card. Clocking it didn't really make a difference either. Driver up to date, everything set to performance, and still i got to go down to medium settings to get any decent FPS going. Been playing the Coh2 beta recently and im forced to go down to minimum settings, and lower resolution to 1600*900. I know its a beta, but thats BULLcrap.

g00dl00kinb0i: The only program that let's You OC more than memory is the program the author of this vid is using, so the max is 835+135=970MHz - core and memory I'd keep on 3000-3050MHz - values highier than this caused my system to freeze in Win7 or BF3 so I don't recommend it. Keep in mind that I'm using a Asus G75 so I got great cooling. I had an MSi laptop with GTX670M 3GB and the temps were in the 80's, so what I'm saying is every laptop brand is different with the temps, do it @ Your own risk. Peace.

g00dl00kinb0i: Yes there is - 100*C for most GPUs & 105*C for my i7 3610QM. Keep in mind that it's almost impossible to get the CPU to this temp. unless You run a CPU hungry app for hours. GPU like GTX660M (Kepler) never gets hotter than 60*C on my Asus G75VW so it should b safe when OC'd and it's a long way from 60*C to 105*C. U can use MSi Afterbuner to monitor the temps while playing games. A part from all this most laptops do an auto-shut down when they get too hot, so You don't have to worry about that.

reidsellars: Hi Anthony do you use these exact settings with your asus g75vw while gaming?

Marc Vigouret: *G75VW

SneekyFauker: Hey! I was wondering why my current clock doesn't ever change at all. The only change that happens to my current clock is when I change the memory clock. My GPU clock and memory for that one changes too though. Is this normal? I see so many people with different current clocks then that of their default clocks.

luke kin: This really helped me! Thank you very much for uploading this.

Rodrigo Zepeda: Hi from Chile, when you apply overclocking, this change its permanent? I have a 650m GT DDR5.
