If I was able to lock the voltage to be consistent I would keep the original as the core clocked much higher.

you can lock the voltage with afterburner on pascal cards.

you need to open the Voltage/frequency graph with ctrl-f then select the voltage point that you want to lock and press the letter "L" key and it will lock the voltage where you select it when the card is under load

got my 1070 (Palit Dual) a week ago. I figured out it can run pretty fast with a custom curve (Afterburner) up to 2177mhz. Of course i had to raise the voltage. Before i try to go higher i´d like to know if it is safe to raise the voltage? I assume it is, otherwise it would not be possible without changing the BIOS.

We might need a sticky lmao because I've asked this question a few posts back. These GPU voltages are locked to 1.09 volts. It won't go any higher than that. And I proved it last night playing Forza Apex GPU scaled to 4k. I turned voltages allllllllllll the way up 100% and Power scaling to 100%. It maxed out at 1.09 volts and 54 C in a 75 F room. Also I've noticed the GPU will just simply boost on its own. My strix will just sit at 2114 mhz at 1.09 volts. Now memory is where things get tricky with the Strix OC. This is what causes it to crash. My Samsung memory is rock solid at around 9200 Mhz. I haven't tried anything higher. Possibly this weekend. I'm anxious to see what this things can do with unlocked voltages. It might border a stock 1080 for sure. I wouldn't even try it if you bought a card with 1 or 2 fans though. I gotta hand it to Asus. Those Strix fans get the job done. You water cooled guys will have an overclocking monster when we get unlocked BIOS

Quoting myself for context. Ordered some Thermal Grizzly Conductonaut so I can try this shunt mod. I will report back with how it goes once complete.

Hi guys, I have an MSI 1070 FE under water on an EK-FC block and backplate and i've been dabbling with overclocking.

When people are reporting their firestrike scores, what score are you reporting? the whole combined test score, or just the graphics score?
post #2015 of 9393
Hey Guys, smile.gif

I don’t know if this deserves its own thread, MODS if you think it is please let me know I will create one.

I live in Canada and I’m planning to upgrade my Asus GTX670 Non-TOP to GTX1070 in the next month or so. (a little strapped on $$$ now). Also I want to wait for 1070 to be in stock and major issues ironed out.

My current rig has aging CM HAF 922 case, Corsair TX750w PSU, 3570k @ 4.5Ghz, MSI Z77 mobo, 16Gb Sammy 1600 RAM and 32” LG 1080P IPS display (4:4:4) which runs at 75Hz.
I’m not planning on changing the display anytime soon, and to some GTX 1070 might be an overkill at 1080P@75Hz but I this will be my last upgrade for the current rig for the next 3-4 years.
After that I will have to do the full build (cpu, mobo, cpu, gpu etc)….

Also I’m hoping 3570k @ 4.5Ghz won’t bottleneck GTX 1070 too much.

I did measure my case I have about 33-34cm or 13” clearance for GPU, so I think I can I can pretty much fit any of the cards in my HAF 922 case.

I still do not have a clear winner…

MSI Gaming X:
I was leaning toward MSI gaming X card (to match mobo) but with the recent Micron/Sammy vram lottery I don’t want to take any chances. Recent MSI statement about their 1070 issues is a little scary.

EVGA FTW:
There are reports of coil whine issues on EVGA cards, not sure if my local store would allow me to swap the card if I got one with the issue. Some peeps says it is related to PSU, and I’m not sure if my Corsair TX750w is good enough?

Zotac AMP Extreme:
Big mother, which should fit in my case. If someone is kind enough and can give me measurement in mm I would really appreciate.
It’s got wonderful HSF solution, but I HATE its memory pads for $500 card I would expect much better solution. I always find heat pads on vram fragile when dealing with them. i.e. if I wanted to change thermal paste on GPU.
I don’t think I would bother, so it might be irrelevant. However from my understanding both MSI/EVGA offer quieter fans.

Asus Strix Overclock Gaming:
Big, great HSF. However it has heat pads on vram. Not as quiet as MSI/EVGA solutions.

Gigabyte Windforce:
Or I should just go for the cheapest solution?… about $100 CDN cheaper than all of the above.

Any help comments/tips would be much appreciated. thumb.gif

Well, I had the same problem too. I figured I'd get the one with the longest warranty, and one that allows you to take off the heatsink to put a third party cooler. I went with Zotac AMP! Extreme.

Also the amp extreme has its own cooling for VRMs so if you take out the big heatsink it doesn't go off with it.

At least in Canada I only get 3 years (as an extended) in total warranty on Zotac GPUs. I get the same from Asus, Gigabyte, MSI and EVGA.

From Zotac's USA Warranty page:

Product Type Graphics Cards
Standard Warranty 2-year
Extended Warranty 3-year total

I highly doubt you broke that video card. Man, if people only knew how many hard locks I go through daily from overclocking. And I just restart and try again.

Asus Strix Overclock Gaming fans won't even turn on until about 50 C in all modes. And you will only see those temps when the card is running 1950 mhz or higher. I can barely even hear the fans once until the are running over 60%. Plus you get an extra HDMI, fan management, and the Samsung memory. My only gripe is its size.

If I were you I would go with the aftermarket vendor that you believe has the best cooling solution. 3 fan minimum in IMO. Temps is everything with these cards to keep your clocks high

once you buy it it has a 2 year warranty, after registering it on their website you get additional 3 years. So 5 years in total. I live in the Philippines by the way.
