Under the GTX 660 Tiís Heatsink



Removing the heatsink on this card is actually a straightforward process that involves a few screws and some wiggling. This should be good news for anyone that wants to install an aftermarket cooler or a water block. As can be seen, the plastic shroud is designed to provide optimal airflow towards the fin assembly and then out through the primary exhaust port.


Unfortunately, this isnít what the reference GTX 660 Tiís heatsink will actually look like. This is EVGAís expanded design which is used for higher specíd versions like the Superclocked so expect the one included on $299 cards to look identical to the slightly flimsy one found on the GTX 670.



We may be running the risk of sounding like a broken record here but even with the main cooling assembly removed, NVIDIAís GTX 660 Ti looks much like the GTX 670. It uses a simple 4+2 phase PWM but has a slightly different Hynix branded 8-module memory layout which aligns with the cut down controller design. We can expect to see upgrades in this area from various board partners, some of which will release cards with 5+2 and even 6+2 PWM sections.
