    My MSI 2070 Armor sits at around 53c when i set fan speed to 60%.
    Have it OC'd to 180+ on the core and 400+ on the memory stable, 200+ caused games to crash/freeze.

    I can hold almost 60fps in Witcher 3 at 4K with shadows and foliage distance set to high instead of ultra.

    +180 or +200 means nothing for the GPU. What are your actual boost values.
    Just tested my kid's 2070 with Zotac BIOS limits are better and fan control also.
    Managed to finish Superposition with 2040 to 2025 GPU during the run and 16180 on the memory all these with sub 60* on the stock Gainward GS cooling with 70-80% fans with custom curve.

    2070mhz, it starts at 2150 as temps rise it sticks to 2070mhz at 57c at 60% fan speed.

    I never use a custom curve as i never hear the fans.

    This is with running AC Odyssey at 4K maxed settings for an hour.

    Sounds awesome, can you share a benchmark result for comparison TimeSpy or Superposition. Sound much better and not power limited than what have ever seen from these cards...

    Nice! I'm running max boost (sustained) of 2040 MHz via OC Scanner. +700 on memory.

    Thought of setting a fixed fan speed too. Card remains at or under 65 C but keeping fans on all the time could drop that a bit further maybe.

    Can't hear the fans when they spin up and AB tachometer shows around 1300 rpm highest, don't remember what speed % was.

    Really like MSI Armor so far.

    Am a bit concerned of reading that 2070's are dying too. I really hope the MSI Armor isn't affected. I couldn't find anything through google yet though.

    dunno about 2070

    according to caseking and der8auer:

    0.17% RMA for 2080, out of "very close to 4 figure" sold

    1.4% RMA for 2080 Ti, sample-size of "a bit less quantity" than the 2080

    From what I can tell, most of it is FUD, spread by agenda driven youtubers and people who don't like the price.

    Without numbers or solid proof, I would take any stories of 'mass failure' with some measure of salt.

    I want to reiterate, I am not saying there aren't problems, I'm just very dubious of how widespread they are.

    I went ahead and bit the bullet, and ordered the EVGA 2070 XC Gaming. Arriving today. Coming from a MSI 1070.

    Update: Got it in, and installed. Man...performance stomps my old 1070. Wildlands...can crank everything up to ultra now. So far, so good.

    Are you and others here using the msi armor or the armor OC. I am new to gpus ( and technical computer talk )so I am guessing it never worth it to buy an OC version?

    Also how do you know if CPU is bottlenecking your GPU? What is the minimum sort of CPU to run a 2070 without bottlenecking?

    Regular non OC. No point in paying a premium when you can oc yourself.

    They're essentially the exact same card, OC just has slightly higher nominal boost out of the box.

    For CPU limit it depends on the game a lot. I believe any Intel i7 (Haswell or newer) or AMD Ryzen 5 or 7 CPU will be enough.

    You seem to have i5 if your specs are correct.
    You could run into a bottleneck in CPU intensive games but most of the time a modern i5 should suffice.

    I have an i5 6600 non k version. Is this a fine card to pair with a 2070?

    I just went looking at the stats of this chip: How does one activate the turbo on this chip?
    • 4 Cores & 4 Threads
    • 3.3 GHz Clock Speed
    • 3.9 GHz Maximum Turbo Frequency

    It should be active by default unless you've disabled it in BIOS but I assume you haven't.

    It should be fine for majority of games and not limit the 2070 too much.

    I just sold my i7 4770 set, i came from a Ryzen 1600. I got this i7 set for free but it did increase performance in most games over the Ryzen.

    I'm about to get an i5 8600K, i'm just losing so so much performance in BFV with this CPU.
    In most titles the GPU won't reach 90+ usage as the CPU is maxing out most of the time and people say when CPU cores reach 90+ usage you get a bottleneck.

    I just can't wait for AMD to come out with the new Zen CPU's so i'll just get this instead and should be enough to last me a few years.

    I don't know, doesn't feel like FUD. My brand new Gigabyte 2070 (Windforce 8G, not even one of the OC models) packed it in after LESS than 24hrs. No overclock, bone stock. Worked awesome until, out of the blue, artifacts everywhere on the desktop, black screens, etc. Disappointing in the extreme.
    I loved the performance, I doubled the performance of my trusty 980. Ran everything at 1440p, nothing less than 60FPS (my refresh rate), graphics options at the highest on everything. This is bone stock, no tweaking, overclocking, nothing. Now it's dead. Brand new and dead. We'll see how the shop handles it on Monday, way less than the 14 day return window. I'm walking out of there with either a new replacement or my money back. No in between. No "wait for our techs to confirm, then come back" BS. Visa is pretty good about charge backs.
    I'm just one guy. How many others out there don't say anything, just RMA without making a big deal? For everyone making complaints, there's probably at least 2 that just quietly RMA/return without posting it all over the net. I'm usually one of those guys. Don't just throw out these complaints as BS. Granted, there's probably some of AMDs guerilla marketing team stoking the fires, but there is some truth there as well. This is a fkd up release and Nvidia knows it.

    This actually is incorrect. NVidia is binning the 2070, there is a "400" and "400A" version of the die. When overclocking, the 400A version clocks higher still. It's not massive, but from what I've seen a 400 non-A gets around 1920-1980 on the core while a 400A gets around 2025-2070. That, and combined with the fact that all the 400A versions typically come with a much better cooler, it's a strange situation where an extra $50 could actually be very much worth it.

    What does binning the 2070 mean?

    Well after a week of heavy use still no issues with my card.
    I did remove the vram overclock as people think cards are dying because of vram overheating.

    How could that even happen, dont they test the cooling?

    Nevermind I worked it out to being meant, "sorting", rather than throwing into the trash bin :)

    Thing is that there are dud cards at every launch, it's happened to me before.

    The 20xx launch is under intense scrutiny so now anybody who gets a bum card is included in the conspiracy that every card is a potential lemon, a fire further stoked by certain youtubers.

    I think there is an issue with the FE edition cards, I have no idea how serious it is because I have no numbers but for non FE cards, there is evidence that the failure rate is being blown out of all proportion (the Derbauer video for example).

    Sorry to hear about your card, I hope it gets sorted out :)
