I'm debating between the 1070 G1 or perhaps going EVGA this time.
I would wait until we know more about power needs but for sure the 10xx G1 isn't on MY shopping list unless I liked power Gimp.

Also is it normal to have power throttling with furmark runs? I'm getting 140% pow usage in furmark which results in throttling, but Heaven and 3dmark Firestrike only push it to about 104%. Actual games dont seem to be capable of getting the power to even 100%. Does that mean I could safely overclock further in games? Ran crysis 3 and bioshock infinite at 4k to stress it and still cant seem to get power usage to be an issue in real world games.
Sliders at 150, and 100mv, 91 temp
Core clock: 1581 + 50 core
Memory: 1951(3902) + 400
I had a 3dmark crash at +60 core, so stuck with 50, and I've always had issues getting memory to 450 since owning the card so i gave up and left it at 400.
Do you guys expect an unlocked bios to actually make a difference in the gtx 1070? I'm contemplating buying one once the stock settles down and such. Would consider getting a watercooled variant if this bios thing actually makes a difference.
yes 4,200 rpm is possible on many/most of the windforce fans. Use a custom fan curve to manage it.
Power throttling on furmark, yes.. it's a power virus. You will only see them on Furmark and Kombustor.
No the power usage isn't going to help give you a higher overclock (meaning different workloads require different power) and TDP% is a useless stat. It just shows that more and less power is being used but not how much power is being used.
Unlocked BIOS make a differences, YES! We already know they are all power gimped, EVEN a GTX 1080 with (2) 8-Pin PCI-e gets PWR perfcaps.

For my liking, I'm just finding the card a little hot or rather, I need to keep the fans running at 70% which for my taste is too loud.
I can't use my nice 1500/2000 OC because it gets too hot for me, mid to high 60's celcius on witcher 3. I know most of you will say it's not hot but again, what I'm looking to do here is improve my temps regardless.
1) Would replacing the stock TIM help?
2) I currently have 2 14cm intakes on my case, 1 x14cm side intake for the gpu, 1x12cm top exh, 1x12cm rear exh.
The 14cm intakes are running at 7v instead of 12 (I found this to work better for temps) and the top/rear are running at full.
I also have a Noctua NH-d14 with 2 fans on it, running at full.
I will soon be putting in a 2nd top 12cm exh fan, just waiting for my case expansion kit to arrive.
So I guess I'm asking the following.
1) Those of you who have replaced the TIM, what did you observe?
2) Will adding a fan inside the case improve things at all?
This is your solution. You're doing great on temps for AIR, next step is this..1

Welcome to OC.NET and thanks for sharing! That's impressive well done.
