you can but with such a high end card in sli its not necessary, i would put it top though it really wont matter much at all.

Running +175 core and +500 memory

I wouldnt exactly class the 1070 high end rather mid range. SLI setups look badass and i would future proof my setup.

My MSI GTX 1070 X has really bad memory overclocking too.. but I've had the core clock up to 2126 stable so far.

Both will run at 4100 regardless of which slot you put them in.

So you don't think it's a big deal if your memory can't overclock well but your core can?

Try this if you have bad memory OC fixed my memory OC Issue

Open the curve in afterburner (Ctrl-F). Select a point up at around 1.093v press "L" and a vertical line will appear in the graph. Press the tick box in AB to apply. You can then try cranking up the memory.

You want the card sitting up at at least 800MV or you will end up with checkerboard artifacts with the higher memory clocks. Without the voltage lock, the card will artifact like crazy at about +500 and above. With the Voltage locked, my MSI Gaming X that is identical to yours will run at up to about +600 but introduces artifacts from about +550Mhz

Thank you. What do I set the core voltage % to?

Both 1070's I've had were poor with core and memory overclocks in games, just a hair over 2000mhz core and +300mhz mem if that were stable.

I'll try the MSI AB lock trick, I can choose to lock it at 1.2v on the graph but it only goes up to 1.093v, and it drops below 1.093 at like 48c....
1.093 says it's 1999mhz core in the graph, but not in GPU-Z. Doesn't make sense.

I want a BIOS editor so I can fix all this stupid ****, are we ever going to get one?
The fact my 1070's only get like 2012mhz core and +250mhz memory is stupid because I'm almost certain I could near double my overclocks if I could uncripple the bios settings.

I have a fan curve that's nowhere close to "aggressive" and I never hit above 65c in anything, I could get SO much more out of my card with more voltage.
Even just fixed, not this dynamic bull****, would help stability quite significantly.

I'm just so frustrated when I have issues and I can't fix them, especially when it's the most expensive part of my PC.

Max it out if you have a 1070 that won't hit power/tdp limits.

I'm getting 2126 mhz stable but even worse than you on memory. +100 (4100/8200) is the highest I can get it.
