    Thanks for all the updates.

    Sad that getting it from some of these companies is like pulling teeth

    The big deal was getting past the fanboyism and acceptance of the bug in the first place, getting nvidia to fix the bug and then to push it out via all the partners having arranged them to add their branding, customizations etc.

    Downloading the new completed bios software and installing it is the easy part

    Thanks for your efforts. I was the first to report this to the GTX1070 thread here and I only discovered the problem via a post in the Steam COD:BO3 forum by a user.

    Overall, the attitude of my fellow users has been pretty good here. I know it helped a few users exchange cards and be made aware of the problem. These bios fixes have definitely taken a while to release, longer than expected.

    My evga 1070 sc acx indeed had micron memory on it. Updated the bios, will have to test it today. Probably that was the problem with oc when running 3dmark.

    There is a 37 page thread on Nvidia.com. That thread has had been plenty of fanboys and nay sayers, even after Nvidia agreed to create the bios fix.

    You are welcome.

    I posted about it in the afterburner section here when I first discovered it thinking it may be easier to have AB coded to work around the problem. I was told by some users there that I should not have any expectations of being able to overclock anything. The Irony that I was being told that on an overclocking site made me laugh.

    I'm not that surprised it has taken a month or so. Nvidia had to spend time on it, test it and then send it to the partners and engage them to customize and test themselves. Given the outright denial by some vendors and vague answer from others, I suspect that don't have it in the high priority queue.

    I have 5x gainward bliss 1070 micron and bunch of Gainward phoenic samsung...

    So far I tested memory OC in mining mode only

    So far Samsung is stable with +780-900, but also lover P states and voltage might crash driver so its a bit hard to test right!!
    Bliss micron updated to new bios
    +800 stable ONLY IF I force static frequency and voltage so card NEVER drop to under P2 state!!
    If I don`t force hight clock even +450 is crshing miner at start! with new micron bios from site!

    So problem is still not fixed!

    MSI gaming X micron CRAP, first MSI gaming dies this pice of crap is overheating, guru3d I blmae you and all review sites for misleading us!!!!! I am waiting for IR temp tool to write my article about MSI faking temperature of GPU and VRM being danagerous HOT!

    MSI gaming X original bios micron is stable at +700 if I force P2 state and use afterburner to limit click to +1700 Mhz!

    so I have finally done some testing after bios upgrade. The card is now working perfectly while benching with oc. was able to push +100/+400 on core/mem respectively. No failures in 3dmark. So I guess it did have an issue with oc.

    Was it officially confirmed that galax doesn't use micron? Also is the 1060 affected by this bug? I have galaxy 660 in need for an upgrade.

    Unable to run MSI GTX1070 Aero OC at stock settings

    I am unable to run my cards, MSI GTX1070 Aero OC at stock settings. When I try the graphics driver crash when windows start and artifacts with small squares fills the screen.

    When I chose to run the GPU memory on 286MHz below stock settings, 7722 MHz, everything seams to work, at least so fare.

    How is it possible that cards with this kind of error is not detected before the cards is released to the market?

    Don't need one
    Poor QC, they probs test one or two of every batch lol

    same with thememory with my msi card they cheaped out by just over clocking the ram from 1250 to 1500 cheaper than buying the real 1500mhz ram, build a good card but cut corners with the ram :/ gotta save somewhere I guess :/

    the HOF cards also use unique voltage controllers
