Exactly.

That's what I said in the previous post, in different words.

I should have the PCIE cables. My current 7950 runs on two 8 pin connectors and it's a very good quality PSU.. I just did not want to buy this and get and then find out i needed to upgrade my PSU also.

You should be good to go. Each generation of cards is bringing down the PSU requirements further and further.

my new gtx1070-SLI are +150% FPS (versus previous my gtx760-SLI cards); but only use 10% more power. lol smile.gif

i could have very comfortably upgraded to gtx1080-SLI.

The only problem with that is when people don't make it clear that us the standard they are using when they post their clocks/scores. It can lead to inflated expectations of performance/overclocks if people aren't upfront about it.

Yesterday i finally received my EVGA GTX1070 SC.I used to have a GTX970 but i sold that too early not considering stocks might be a problem so i spend 3 weeks with GTX960 at 1440p and it wasn't the best experience.Anyways i'm really happy with the new card build quality is top notch,card looks sexy and it's super silent.The only major problem that i have i can't reach my targeted oc at the moment.Before getting the card i read almost every review so i thought exact 2ghz boost / 9ghz mem would be ok for 7/24 use but the card is not super stable at those speeds e.g it can complate Valley but it crashes middle of Firestrike Extreme and even if it runs stable i see that 2ghz rarely it mostly runs at 1950/1980mhz area.

So how is SC users doing in terms of overclock.Is 2000mhz boost too much for this card at def voltage but %112 power target?

1070 FTW back, managed to crack 6700 graphics score in Time Spy.



Time Spy: 6703
Firestrike Extreme: 10125
Firestrike: 21376
(Invalid because x70 FTW is unknown still)

Still disappointed manual curve 2278MHz gives less performance.
If K-Boost forced the card to 1.08/1.09V instead of 1.05V, I could run that frequency with a normal offset overclock.

Waiting for BIOS editors, I guess!

EDIT: Well, never mind. It looked initially like you had a rear mounted 120mm radiator. My monitor is set too dark and that's a poor exposure. My bad.

Just a suggestion, but you might want to consider rotating your radiator such that the ports are below the pump. If you leave it the way you have it, there's a possibility you will end up with air in the radiator. It is harder on the pump. Failure may occur sooner than later.
