Hello. I am a new PC Owner and I'm getting very poor results when overclocking my 2070 Super FTW3. In TimeSpy and Firestrike, I'm able to pass with a core clock of +100 and a memory clock of +800. However, when I boot up a game, it crashes almost immediately. I tried with conservative values of +50 and +250 and it still crashes every time. I will say, the games this happened in were all DX12 Ray Tracing games. In modern warfare, rtx was off. Still crashed immediately. In metro exodus with dlss and rtx on high, it crashes within a minute of loading into the game. In control, same thing. Again, this is with a conservative value of +50 CC and +250 memory. Voltage left at 0, and I also tried putting it at 10, 15, 20, and 30%.
My temps were only at 62C max since the ftw3 has a hefty cooler. Card was only at around 2025-2045 MHz.
I tried the precision x1 vf scanner and got a score of 9 (all settings default with temp and power limit maxed). Did I just get a bad card? This card was supposedly made for overclocking so I'm a little disappointed.
My build is a ryzen 3600x, 16gb of ddr4-3600 ram, and a 550w Seasonic Gold power supply. The power supply is one thing I'm worried could be causing it since it's a little low. Power draw of the gpu is reading at around 250-300W in Precision X1. My computer hasn't locked up or anything though, just that I get kicked to the desktop.
I've been on the latest official Nvidia drivers since early December when I built it. Haven't changed the cards bios at all.
