Flash 1070 strix 8G with O8G bios - Page 2

post #11 of 173
Maybe it's a very dumb question but why not change the boost clock in Gpu Tweak II or whatever you use for OC?. I didn't know there was 2 versions before buying and apparently I have the STRIX-GTX1070-8G-GAMING. I just made a User setting on GPU tweak with the boostclock up to 1860 Mhz and everything seems okay after 10 min Heaven benchmark. What's the difference between doing that and the Bios mod?

Yeah you are right. I am a novice in this. But I was able to successfully load OC BIOS. Earlier I was using nvflash version. Later with the help of one of the members here I got the pascal version and it worked fine. I played a couple of VR games with no issues at all.

What is the power limit setting for this bios? On the non-OC model it is 112 max. What is the max on the OC model please?

Also.. what 'pascal version' are you referring to please? Can you link us to it?

I see 120 max.

Here is the pascal version I was referring to in page 140. This worked for me.

So basically using the nvflash above you can download the bios software into your 1070.

Yeah i managed to do ut. i just had to remove the 32 bit sys file from the folder before running. I used protect off and protect off command as well.

I don't think my card is working well with the OC bios. Firestrike extreme bails out telling me the user cancelled the test.

Here is something I put on another forum: BUT PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE... BACKUP your bios first and keep it safe. I found that the Strix OC bios did not play nice with my my STRIX non-OC. I got a lovely overclock on my stock bios AND i was able to overclock my memory, something I couldn't do at all on the OC bios. I am now fully stable at 2030(ish)Mhz Core / 9008Mhz Memory on the original BIOS.

Anyway.. here is what to do:

Flashed my Asus Strix 1070 (non-OC) with the OC bios. Eventually I worked out that I needed 5.292 version: https://www.techpowerup.com/downloads/2709/nvflash-5-292-0-for-windows/mirrors

*** IF RUNNING 64 WINDOWS MAKE SURE YOU DON'T COPY ACROSS THE 32-bit SYS FILE, you only need one, either 32 or the 64 ***
** IMPORTANT: DO THIS AT YOUR OWN RISK. I TAKE NO RESPONSIBILITY FOR YOU BREAKING YOUR CARD AND ACCEPT NO LIABILITY**

Follow the instructions and put that in a folder called nvflash on the C drive along with the rom. ***BACK UP YOUR ORIGINAL BIOS ****

DISABLE YOUR 1070 ADAPTER IN DEVICE MANAGER

Open a CMD window with Administrator permisions.

Then use these 3 commands:

nvflash -i0 --protectoff

nvflash -i0 -6 Asus.rom (Where Asus.rom is the name of the rom file to flash).

nvflash -i0 --protecton

RE-ENABLE 1070 adapter in device manager.

Reboot your PC, and cross your fingers.
