Cooling and Noise

Putting the GTX 660Ti through our standard Furmark run to put more load and heat into its heatsink than you will ever see in game we saw results around what we expected. The GTX 670 came in at 76 degrees and the lower TDP of the GTX 660Ti helped cool things down a few degrees, even with its overclock.  During this test, the card did spool up its fans, more than we would normally see from a mid-range card. Even then, the noise level wasn’t too bad, but still considerably louder than most of the cards on this graph. Something I would like to point out, because we have been asked about this before.  We do our noise level performance using the auto setting on the fan control. It’s entirely possible that you will experience more noise if you crank it all the way up. The idea behind this way of testing is how loud the card will get when put under more load than you can put it under in game. We want to make sure you aren’t going to have noise issues or cooling issues, auto is the best balance of this.

Nvidia's GTX 660Ti is now available for public consumption. Look out, this is a hell of a deal!

What sucks is that EVGA offers a step up program so within the 90 days of buying my 2 GTX 560 Ti FPB cards i could have stepped them up to a newer model such as the 660s.

Only problem is my 90 days were up a few days ago.....:(

Now im on a mission to get 2 of these cards as soon as i can sell my 560s.

Cant wait to get my hands on them.

Almost makes me regret buying a pair of EVGA GTX 670 FTW cards...almost. Definitely a great "value" buy for SLI.

I didn't Go for SLI but I ordered one The PNY GTX 660 TI's from Newegg Yesterday. Newegg throws in a Free copy of Borderlands 2 and PNY tossed in a free 16' HDMI cable... I think it will be a big Improvement over my 120 I've got in the system now. But I have to knock all the bugs out before the Lan...Am I nutz?

Just ordered a EVGA 660 Ti for my desktop, giving my 5870 to my daughter.
