Hi Guys, I have 2 1660 supers with Hynix memory that were running hot at around 63/64 and high power of 86 and 88 watts using -250 and -1004 memory setting. I matched the PL for them (This is a 5 card rig 4 1660 supers and one 1660 regular) The 1660 regular is at -200 and +1300 and is fine…
I changed the two Super cards to +930 for the Core and left -1004 and now the watts on the cards are 73 and 75. Temps are now 45 and 55 degrees which is a significant drop.
Now question is this, changing the core from -250 to plus 930 does what in term of stressing the card limits? Ok temps and watts have lowered significantly thats for sure.
Is it better to keep at -250 and have higher power and temps as maybe the GPU core is now running beyond spec etc?
Im curious as to why these 2 cards (Asus Tuf Duals) dont like the usual settings like all my other 1660 supers with Hynix as I have aother rig with 4 of them… MSIs and Another Asus Tuf and their watts are 80 and temps in the mid 50s… just these two cards want more power and run way hotter.
I do have these two card risers connected to a PCIE extension/adapter card in the main X16 Slot so not sure if this is causing it?
