Just a little update. My Alhphacool universal gpu block fits the MSI 1070 Gaming perfectly with the front and backplate on. Any block that fits within the mounting holes should fit without an issue, if the mounting system is the post/spring/nut style. If the block needs a special backplate then there might be an issue.

This is the block I am using:



Hopefully the picture will explain when I mean by post/spring/nut mounting. I ran the bold through from the back, slipped on the plastic washer and used a nut on top of the washer to tighten the bolt to the plate and pcb. I then dropped on the block, put the springs on the posts and tightened down the thumb screw/nut. (the picture shows the bolt and thumb screw opposite of how I installed it)

Fitment will be more test and see with AIO blocks but it looks like the EVGA kit will work fine with the MSI plates in place.

I didnt have any problem yet. It passed the stress test from 3DMark.

I am just asking because benchs are only 5 min long, but usually I game for more then 2h!! biggrin.gif

I usually have a minimum of 2 profiles set up in Afterburner. Benchmarking profile which is the highest clocks I can get and still pass a benchmark. My gaming profiles are constantly tweaked as I get more hours in games and I make separate profiles for stubborn games that don't want to play nice with my clocks (looking at you GTAV).

With this particular card my max clocks profile and the profile I use for gaming aren't much different, 25mhz less on the memory is the only change so far (+145/+725 for gaming).

Nice!! So, both the VRM plate AND the VRAM plate? You didn't hit/bump the VRAM plate?

Nothing touches. I meant to get some measurements while I had everything apart but I will be taking back apart (currently has the air cooler back on it) in the next couple of days once I get the rest of the loop buttoned up so I can get some clearance measurements. I think the extruded cold plate of the EVGA will provide the necessary clearance for the mounting plate (with all the water tubes etc..) and the pump/block combo to remain above the ram plate.

That's great to hear. I'd love that and I'm sure the peeps in The Mod thread would love to hear it, too. OK, right, right--that makes sense. Awesome--thank you! biggrin.gif

These OC's you are posting here, do you actually use for gaming or just for bench?

both. but i usually tone it down for Gaming to make sure its 100% stable and i dont need super volts lol.

Running +100/+600 @ 50% fan and stock volts atm. for gaming.

Benchmark wise id turn on all the voltage and fans and go like +100/+800. but i bet most people run stable OCs.

I don't see the point in running just a stable OC for a benchmark, if the point is to see how far the card can be pushed, or to try to get onto the leader boards.

To me it's like the difference between...and I hate to use a car analogy but, it's appropriate:

Tuning a car for a quarter mile race vs. tuning for a 200 mile race.

You can use the same car for both, and it can be tuned to go fast in either one, but longevity for the 200 mile race is invariably going to require substantial differences in the tuning.

To me, a stable overclock for benchmarks is one that allows you to finish the benchmark. It doesn't have to finish it consistently but as long as I can finish the benchmark a few times I am satisfied. Outside of benchmarking stability matters a lot more but I don't use any synthetic suite to gauge stability, I just play the games and wait for a crash and adjust accordingly.

I don't see the point in using Firestrike, Furmark, or Unigine looped to gauge stability. If you run all of those for 48hours straight without a crash it just means your clocks for those benchmarks are stable. It tells you zero about your game stability.

Would a 650 watt psu suffice for a single 1070?

Yes, as long as it has the required PCI-E power cables. Depending on the rest of your system, you could probably run two of them on a 650.
