Failing GTX 1070?

post #1 of 16
Thread Starter 
I have had my MSI GTX 1070 Gaming X since July 5, it has been running perfect with a boost core clock of 1974mhz out of the box. I have not over clocked it yet as I don't see a need to, Today I was looking at the sensors with GPU-Z and when I ran the gpu test the cards core clock only boosted to 1151mhz and voltage only went to 0.68 when up until this it would boost to 1974mhz and voltage of 1.06, I tried 3 times with the same result so I rebooted my system and it's back to normal. also if it matters I do not have the dpc latency issue that others are having as I tested for that. So what I am asking is would this be a driver problem or is my brand new GTX 1070 a bad graphics card (pile of poop) ? never had the problem with any of my other nvidia gpu's even though I over clocked all of them, GTX 295, GTX 580 sli, GTX 680, GTX 970.
Thank you.

Is there anyone that has any ideas about this? It did it again today but this time the voltage went to 0.98 and core clock went to 1282mhz, and a reboot corrected it again.

Are you using W10? After updates are installed, usually defender update, mine does that too. My 970 did also. It appears to be a windows thing. I just reboot after updates.

thanks for the reply.
I should have updated my thread sooner but I watched the gpu performance for a few days to make sure.
It's corrected now, seems it was the MSI Gaming app it does not like running with MSI Afterburner even
though MSI say's you can run both together. I'm just running Afterburner now as the gaming app isn't very good
anyway and has way to many process's running, (6 of them).
I'm on windows 7 pro 64bit.

I had the issue once where my card clocked to about 1.8ghz only and had no obvious reason for the cap, it was nowhere near PWR limit.

I restarted afterburner and it was fixed, so in my case it seems somehow afterburner malfuctioned.

Mine will occasionally do this as well. You can adjust the Power Target to set it back to normal. I saved a couple profiles and switch between the two to reset it.

I believe its a driver problem and something triggers the power target to drop to 0 somehow

Just worried because i found topic about similiar issue here:
https://linustechtips.com/main/topic/387651-gtx-980-ti-occationally-gets-stuck-at-idle-clock-speed/

And reason was not stable oc. So maybe i have not stable factory OC? Also they had driver crashes, me not, 0 driver crash.

Maybe this is different situation because my card must be idle few days.

the developer of afterburner agrees with you.

I told him about the problem and his conclusion is its a driver bug, the reason restarting afterburner fixes it, is because when restarted it reapplies the power target.

I am trying to find out how much idle time the PC needs for the bug to kick in, I know 3 days is enough, but also 8 hours is not enough.
