    :infinity:Thank you for the birthday wishes lol and I'll take some build pics as I have a full big window to show the inside. Newegg hasn't shipped it yet but I'm hoping someone doesn't steal it haha.

    And for The 1070G1 that's a pretty good score.

    And For the selection of the G1 or the Gaming X If you wanna save money go for the G1 even though it's plastic shroud and orange highlights make it look unappealing for most, the 1070's are mostly the same in OC really and none can really go past the early 2100's so it's preference and favorite company. I actually already regret paying MSI so much money lol but all the AIB cards are sold out again so I think I'll be happy.

    Out of the box this MSi Gaming X 1070 was already clocked pretty high. I've added 75mhz to the core (2025), 601mhz to the memory (9202). That seems to be the best stable speed it will do. (quick OC)

    It's been dead silent and it runs cooler than my 970 (same brand/model). Max temp was 71c and room ambient is high today (26c)

    It runs The Witcher really well. 1080p is effortless. 1440p is great and 4K is playable at 35-45FPS (most likely better with settings adjusted).

    PTS: 15,853
    GPU: 19,338
    PHYS: 12,920 (4790K @4.6Ghz)

    I keep forgetting I'm on 4K so I'll try to remember to downsize my captures...

    One thing I've yet to see anyone mention is how massive these cards are. It's a full inch deeper/wider (from motherboard towards case window) than any of my previous GPUs (970, 780Ti, etc).

    Are all 1070s this enormous or just MSi? This may be an issue with small builds.

    Very little time yet but pretty happy with the 1070.

    That's your graphic score correct? Not your overall score...

    You have the same CPU as I do, and you've clocked it at 4.6Ghz too. What's your overall score? And how happy are you with it right now? Which videocard did you upgrade from?

    Would appreciate your feedback, thanks.

    :3eyes:The cards are bigger now?. Hmmm at least I have a Full Tower now so it shouldn't be any problems but wow I thought it'd be smaller in size.

    And hey thanks for the Info I'll def try your settings for the OC and see If it'll go any higher being stable.:boozer:

    It has to be.

    I just got my card and did some stock (only for gpu, CPU@4.4GHz, RAM@3GHz) tests and I got 18667 gpu score, 17369 physics score, and the actual standard Firestrike 16276.

    The card boosts @ 1898-1924 (min-max), temps max 65 BUT it's very hot here outside... it's incredibly silent, on auto fans don't even turn on until you pass 60 degrees. I pushed it up to 80% and it's still inaudible for me. Only at 100% you can hear the card, but even then with closed case and all other system fans it's still ok. (I have like 8 120 fans, 1 140 fan, and I guess you could count the PSU fan as well, all in all it's quite a noisy, but with good airflow, case).

    And the best thing is, it looks amazing, seriously I compared it to my MSI 970 Gaming 4G and it's way, way better built, sturdy and quality of the materials. And thanks to the backplate and the extra reinforced plate over the memory it has almost 0 sag (like 2 mm tops). The 970 had a huge sag lol...

    I've placed mine on order, I'm going to pull the trigger since there was only 2 left in stock. And I'm going to go pick it up tomorrow at my local store.

    $779 here in Australia

    That's $581 USD.

    In comparison, the RX480 is $335 USD here (around $450 AUD).

    After getting my 1070 with it's abundance of girth, I was just viewing various pics of the new 10 series cards and it seems the MSi, Asus and ZOTAC coolers/PCB are big. They are significantly wider than past models. Just look at the mounting clip points.

    Yes they are, I might not be able to mount my side panel with the 2x120 fans due to this, but the gpu is very, very cool, so I doubt it's really needed (it only takes like 1-2 degrees from my 970).

    It seems like the MSI Gigabyte cards are the same size as my R9 290 Card from Sapphire and my card is a 3 fan card.

    How big are the 1070 cards in comparison to a Sapphire R9 290 Tri-X card? I know the 2 fan cards would be a tad smaller than my r9 290 card.

    Length-wise? They seem to range from 10.5" to 11.25" from what I've seen across various models. Make sure they can fit before buying!

    Yeah length wise. My card measures 11.8 inches so the cards are a tad smaller than my card.

    I think the largest one is the ASUS STRIX around 11.75". My EVGA SC is 10.5"... can't fit anything bigger than 11 in my case

    So what are your OC results guys?

    After some hour of tweaking I'm sitting at an average boost of 2063 (2050-2076 min-max) so far, voltage/power/temp sliders maxed. I've run like 1 hour of Heaven and 2-3 loops on all 3dmarks from vantage on.

    So I "think" it's pretty stable core wise... now to memory, what's a good baseline for that?

    The tests I've read indicate that you should be able to add 450-500 MHz in MS AB without too many problems.

    Man I'm getting excited in my waiting to get the 1070

    :banana:

    Watch my horrible luck with GPU's, I'll end up on a card that won't overclock past the base clocks. Maybe by 50Mhz lol

    I'm done for the day with the OC, it's weird with Firestrike though somehow it kept crashing with settings that were perfectly stable in Heave/Valley/other 3DMarks, so I settled for a 90 on core and a 440 memory there for a 17560 performance score.

    I'm also keeping a profile with a more aggressive +105/+505, which in other than Firestrike runs smooth.

    I'll have to see how it goes in games, where there usually are some very OC sensitive titles (like Witcher 3), but the majority are less taxing than Firestrike.

    I'll probably tweak the OC some more when new drivers/AB versions come out. I agree with the general consensus that OC is way harder to hit the sweet spot with Pascal, with this dynamic boost thingy. Granted, it's very handy for the non-OCers, since you get so much boost even a stock on core.

    The base clock, only after pushing all voltage/power/temp limit to the max went to just under 2000MHz. So really, there's not much you can squeeze core wise. 2050-2070~ is my max.

    My MSI 1070 runs out of the box 2034-2050MHz (far above factory overclock), when all sliders moved to max i get 2065-2101MHz, it won't maintain 2101MHz for very long tho as it appears it flags as voltage limit. Not power limit (93%) and 68C (33% fan speed) it's hardly temp limits either. Over all happy with it.

    Memory overclock is pretty impressive with it going from 8GHz to 9.4GHz
