Gigabyte Aorus RTX 2070 Extreme


I tried overclocking my RTX 2070 Extreme but i can’t overclock much. Is this normal or is it already overclocked out of the box? See picture. First pic is standard. Second is what i tried to overclock. Ingame overclocked works fine, but in 3D mark it crashes

I have a zotac 2070 amp extreme core, and it's pretty locked down, even the fan settings for some reason. I believe people think most 2070's have pretty strict power limit's in the BIOS and/or hardware itself.

I gave up trying to OC this thing manually, it just overrides, MSIAB. And in zotac's own software, which I should use, but MSIAB have the rivaFPS counter in games, so.....zotac's OC program also get's over-ride'ed by the BIOS limits.

I never tried changing the voltage tho, but again, does it even matter, if it just over-rides it anyways, as soon as the BIOS says, too much power and/or temp.

IDK, in the past, how easy was it to cook a GPU to death.

Have people had much luck swapping BIOS on these, what have the hackers been up too ? I'm too afraid of bricking mine to try anything. I'm too poor.
