Nukemaster Welcome to the 1070 + Mono Plus club

Tiihokatti Installed Accelero Mono Plus on my ~3 years old Asus GTX 1070 Dual OC.
The stock cooler is simply horrendous: The fans are loud and inefficient and the heatsink is extremely bad at cooling the card with its meager 2 heatpipes.

I have had 5 different cooling setups on the card now:
1. Stock
2. Antec h20 620 AIO with zipties, also used a hackjob version with 2x 120mm radiators on the loop.
3. Kraken G12 (which wasn't readily compatible with the non-reference PCB of the card) + Corsair Hydro H110i GTX (280mm AIO)
4. Stock heatsink with 3x Arctic F8 Silent fans strapped on it with zipties.
5. Arctic Accelero Mono Plus (stock and also with the fan replaced with Arctic F12)

And out of all those options the Accelero + F12 has been by far the best solution when it comes to thermals and noise. Temps are at most @55C and fan @800rpm. And all this is inside a NZXT H500i case.
We are talking about a 35€ air-cooler when the Corsair AIO-setup cost me over 100€. I feel utterly stupid thinking about the fact that I spent that much money on the Corsair + Kraken G12 (which also had to be "Dremeled" for it to fit on the card) when a simple and cheap air-cooler worked as efficiently as the 280mm AIO. And the air-cooler is actually much more silent than the AIO as the pump was very noisy on the Corsair.
And also keep in mind that the air-cooler is pretty much unbreakable and maintenance-free, while the AIO is in need of refilling/cleaning within 3-5 years. I've had 3 different AIOs in the past 7-8 years and I have done teardown+assembly on every single one of those (+ I have a full 280mm custom-loop inside another ITX-setup so I know my Schiit). AIOs aren't simply built to last over 5 years without maintenance...

My Gaming X Micron card from the very first batch of micron cards, after the bug fix bios would stably clock to just over +600 from stock with a gaming Z bios or the strix bios installed. I ended up settling on the Gaming Z bios because the performance was similar to Asus Strix but it was actually written for the hardware it was running on. The 126% power slider placebo got me in as well.

I just wish remove 55°C throttling to have fixed 2152mhz

So I have tried to download GV-N1070XTREME-8GD/F2/0404 from techpowerup web site which partially fixed the issue. First time when I power on my computer I get black screen again, but if I reboot my computer then it loads normally. The problem is that from time to time some application crashes now and the performance is not same like it used to be. And also rebooting computer anytime when I want to start it is quite annoying. Do you have any idea how to solve this problem? Some further details: Of course I already tried to uninstall nvidia drivers, applications and then I made a clean installation. I have tried to re-flash the BIOS again but that also didn't help.

Thank you,

Probably too late but try using a different display output port on the card. Display port 1 on a Gigabyte card is not always the same as displayport 1 on a different card

Hi. You can try to download and install official Gigabyte BIOS from here https://www.gigabyte.com/us/Graphics...upport-dl-bios
and see if it helps.
Also on the same website you mentioned there are multiple different BIOS versions for your card model. You can try to flash them one by one and see if any would work the same as your old one



What was the original reason that you made you install different firmware? You some some problems with your GPU before?
