Post screen shots to prove that.

EDIT: With the UD7 I'm using 24 PCIe lanes. The 1070, a sound card, and a NIC.

EDIT2: What board are you using, again? IIRC I had issues with this UD7 booting beyond 3.6Ghz before and the QPI PLL and IOH core helped. I can't remember what my EVGA 760 was set to but it was able to reach close to 4GHz but I'm not so sure it was stable.. it's been a while since using that board and I think I sold it off. Bought an 141 E770 Rev 1.0 a while ago and haven't even tested it. That might be a fun board to mess around with.
