G1 gaming 1070 can't idle with memory OC

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hi guys,

Just picked up my new 1070 the other week and been playing around with it like mad trying to understand what the hell is going on with my overclock.

The card over clocks nicely for the most part. Can achieve a total of 2113mhz on the core and 8900mhz on the memory - tested for ages in heaven and Valley plus bf4 no problem. No artifacts or anything.

The problem is when it idles down. Once it drops the voltage off like back to desktop etc - If I open any application it shoots the memory core back up and the voltage isnt quick enough to support it causing instant artifacts followed by a hardlock or reset.

It doesn't end there, if I've saved a memory overclock even as low as 200mhz (8400mhz) from the g1's stock clock it will trip it and cause exactly the same issue. Happens everytime without fail.

It seems to be with eithee MSI afterburner or xtreme gigabyte oc software although I've had better results with xtreme admittedly. I would however much prefer to use afterburner.

My thought is the card's voltage is not pumping to feed the memory clock fast enough from idle causing this issue. I haven't been able to find any other people with similar symptoms.

Could it be a potential faulty card even though it holds a decent oc and doesn't have any issues at stock?

Or am I being a complete nooby here and overlooking something?

Any thoughts would be welcomed.

Cheers

Also have a Gigabyte G1 Gaming and having the same issue here. I can overclock the memory to +310 and it won't crash when increasing from idle, but once the voltage and clocks have increased it will go over +500 no problem.

I was going to attempt a different bios to see if that changed anything. Interesting u can get 300+ tho. Can u post a pic of what happens when it crashes? I get a combination of bsods and hardlocks.

Also does it happening on Starr up?
