If the 1070 Strix is the same as the 1080 Ti size-wise, then it doesn’t properly fit in the bracket. I had to take the bracket out of the case (as per the user manual), take the screw insert out and slightly bend/force the bracket over the plastic fan cover. It’s not aweful, but it did slightly scratch the plastic a bit... It was also slightly trickier to get the bracket back in the case. It sounds worse than it is - in the end it fitted and it all works great.
