But I do love to benchmark so I might do the mod or find an alternative.

I've found on TPU a RTX 2070 TU106-400-A1 (Normal Chip) BIOS from Gigabyte with a strange Power Limit maxed to 240W while all the others BIOS are 200W.
Flashing does work at least on my MSI RTX 2070 Armor. Monitoring is showing power draws from 215W to 240W when overclocking with higher volts.
This allowed my card to go from 2010mhz max boost before flashing to 2070mhz after flashing.

Are you familiarized with the liquid metal shut mods? And what it does? The "sinhor clamp" mod I did is the same but with a clamp that does the same without soldering, but I dont recommend it because it dangerous, if the clamp slips it will short something, because it is near the power input wires.
I am not using it, just waiting for a bios mod...

Has there been any news indicating that the 2070's are/will suffer from the same reliability issues that the 2080 ti's are having?

I decided to sold my Gigabyte Windforce after 2 week use. It was otherwise great card, but I couldn't live with locked max 200W power limit. I was already looking shunt resistors, but then found buyer for the card with pretty much same sum as I paid for it.

Now I'm looking for A binned card. Can't decide if get another 2070 or should I jump to 2080. This time I have to be 100% sure, that I get A bin (=possibility flash better bioses), but how can I be sure which card has A bin? Is the "OC" in name always A binned? But then example Gainward isn't using "OC" naming. I'm looking for cheapest cards (2070 or 2080) with A bin chip.

Anyone here know anything about the Galax 2070 OC?

It's the cheapest 2070 I can find in Australia ($30 cheaper than the next lowest 2070 and $150 cheaper than the next OC'd 2070 available).

Also comes with a boosted clock of 1815Mhz which is crazy high as the lower ended 2070 OC cards only get boosted to ~17xx.

2070's that get clocked up to ~18xx are all like $300 more than this card which is why I'm hesitant.

Seems too good to be true but I literally can't find any information online about this card, only a dodgy YouTube review that's not even in English.

I am hearing about power restrictions. What is that looking like in real world clocks? In a review I watched the lowest end 2070 hot over 2ghz just like the other cards.

Is this similar to the 670/680 launch where beefed up cards were hitting similar clocks to basic cards?

Edit### Looks like I was mistaken the GN reviews says the card is power limited (EVGA Black)

I will just solder the shunt, no worries there. Just not sure when I can find the time.
