You can most likely flash it, but there are no guarantees and you will most likely see no gain in it.
The default core voltage adjustments, are broken. Not just on my 1070.
On most if not all 1070's, increasing or maxing the core voltage gives no extra OC headroom or stability. GPU-Z measures an increase on mine from 1.06v to 1.09v and this helps not at all.
Nvidia has managed to make core voltage increases 100% useless, it's broken.
The cards BIOS' are clearly not designed for extra voltage, they already pwr and vrel throttle with stock power settings, which just get worse with increased voltage obviously.'

I'm aware I've lost the silicon lottery.
If increasing the core voltage actually helped, I'd be able to OC higher.

Every generation Nvidia seems to cripple their cards BIOS more and more in the name of thermal and power efficiency bragging rights, at the cost of performance.
"Wow look how little power our starved and throttling GPU's use, we're efficiency masters!"
Providing insufficient power is not power efficiency, Nvidia.

Sadly there's 2 major issues...

(1) Pascal voltage bumps do not appear to improve O/C headroom (in your case it may even impact stability)

(2) Lack of power, which can limit your max boost and/or throttle. Buying Pascal (if you're going to) really needs 8+8 PCI-e. When we're (ok I'll speak for myself, when I can lol because I don't know how right now) MOD the BIOS I'll be able to allow 475W (technically higher but I wouldn't go beyond this). Sadly anyone with a single 8-pin PCI-e will be limited to only 275W with a power MOD. 8+6 configs would be around 380W with a MOD.

We can't set power for 99w over pci-e and 250-300w over 8pin? Or do you just not recommend that?

Frustrating working with my 1080 FE. Runs great at 2126 @ 1.04v. But going to 2138mhz tanks the core voltage to 1.02v and the driver crashes. I was thinking of flashing that Palit bios with the 99w pci-e and 175w 8 pin.

And unfortunately I didn't know about the shunt resister mod when I got my card and I don't really want to take apart my water loop and disassemble the block to do it.

Ok who wants to try the strix XOC bios? Removes power target and sets vcore to 1.24v

@Outcasst would you like to use one of your remaining 8 lives to see if this flashes on an FE? biggrin.gif

Just flashed it on my EVGA FE 1080 and works correctly.

Now I can go further from 1.093v, lets see if it improves fps in benchs...

Awaiting your results... do you have any screenshots? How is your voltage slider in afterburner?

Can go to 1.20v, but totally unstable...

I flashed it to my gaming X, but the voltage stays around 1100mv not 1240

BTW the power limit is totaly gone in this bios. There is no clock play or anything, it stays at the specified clock all the time.

Did you gain anything over stock bios? I see you get 2151 @ 1.125v. I am maxed at 2126 @ 1.03v with stock bios.

Using afterburner beta 4 and curve voltage you can reach 1.20v, but in my case over 1.15v its totally unstable... Maybe cos of being Founders Edition.

I can reach 2151 stable at 1.11v, but cant go over that in spite of getting voltage upper...

In regards to performance, I get better fps in FireStrike Ultra scene 1, but scene 2 gets worse...

I am trying different curves at the moment...

Would like a specific mod for Founders, this is Strix mod so will work better in Asus card...
