    MSI 1070 here,

    every time my gpu goes above 2ghz, it locks up. Any solutions?

    Vram clocks fine to +750mhz.

    core on the other hand, won't go beyond +50mhz. New to nvidia gpus, so not much experience with overclocking them.

    Thought it would be simple, powerlimit to max, and core like everyone else +100mhz. Using afterburner btw.

    I think I'm in love with this card. Over 2000 on the core and 9000 effective on the memory without even breaking a sweat and it's been 90 degree weather here, completely silent. Craps all over my previous 7970 CF in every conceivable metric. Nvidia profile inspector has a dizzying amount of options to tinker with, Assetto Corsa with 4xSGSSAA looks and runs like a dream. Goodbye AMD dx11 CPU overhead.

    I just moved from a 390X over to a 1070 FE (EVGA box). I have noticed my scores in several benchmarks seem to be a bit higher than some reviews, even though those reviews are often using X99 systems as the test platform vs my Z170. Checked GPU-Z and noticed the boost is hitting 1840-1880, rather than the specified 1683. That normal for these cards? Is the boost an approximate?

    Pardon me if this has been discussed and I missed it. I have been out of team green since my 580.

    That boost is normal. Many cards operate higher than specs list.

    A proper dx12 bench emerges and the 10 series is looking pretty solid. :rock:

    I'm interested to see how the upcoming 1060 and 1050 compare to AMD, as those are the competitively priced cards.

    @Blackfyre

    Would you mind posting a pic of your core clock curve?

    I am getting a sub 30 fps on my MSI 1070 GTX X in GTA V @4k

    I see everyone's benchmark results are showing like 50 fps in that game at 4k, why am I getting much lower fps? I am not capped at 30fps due to 30hz monitor either, it does 60hz at 4k.

    Latest drivers, using all highest settings in GTA V except all AA turned off.
    Help

    Score: 6098
    GPU: 6395
    CPU: 4828

    http://www.3dmark.com/3dm/13212759

    1st run. Stock CPU. I just clocked my card to 2088, the memory to 4577 (9154). Core dropped a hair to 2076 during the bench. I cranked fan to 100% and it never got above 56c (hot day here too).

    I just discovered that I can't seem to figure out how to overclock my CPU in my new board, stuff is greyed out. I need to see what's up with that. I could run it at 4.6 or 4.7ghz for a few benches but I suspect the score won't rise much. 6300-6350, maybe...

    Maybe check the settings in the nvidia control panel. Try taking control of the game's vsync setting from there and turn it on/off/fast, etc to see how it reacts.
    You should be getting higher framerates than that at 4K.

    I just ran it at 3840x2400 (slightly higher than 4k), fps range 37-62 averages between 40-55 in benchmark. In-game driving around 45-50+ fps. My gfx options are all maxed-out, no AA except 4x AA on reflections, max advanced options except the frame one is off.

    Maybe cpu difference? I know GTA:V can have big fps difference between 4790k and 6700k.

    Refer to this video which looks at different overclocked cpu running different games, skip to 0:57;

    Okay first of all, get to your most stable clock speeds. I had mine at:

    Core Voltage % = +100
    Power Limit % = +126
    Core Clock = +106 MHz
    Memory Clock = +666 MHz

    (I could overclock memory to 850MHz and still have no crashes or artifacts, but since we don't have a temperature reading of it, and performance doesn't increase that much at that level, I leave it at +666).

    So anyway, that was my daily overclock. I could never go past +106 MHz on the core (which equated to 2088 MHz while gaming). So from this point, you press CTRL + F on MSI AfterBurner to get the curve:

    Click on the point in the graph where it corresponds with 1093 mV on the x-axis, which should say +106 in my case (2088MHz on the y axis) and drag it up to +130, which equates to 2112 MHz in my case. This automatically drags the last few points up with it anyway to correspond. I leave the graph at that and apply the settings.

    PS: I know you didn't need a detailed explanation, it's just in case anyone else wanted this information.

    That is 150mhz more than my card is doing. Mine just stops at 1936mhz, no amount of i overclock i try would get it beyond. It keeps crashing even with +50mhz on the core with pl on max and corevoltage at 100%.

    Do i have a bad chip?

    Vram does 700mhz with ease.

    Yeah man, you have a bad chip. I answered you @overclock.net just now. Sad really. By the way, I remember you on the AMD side of the forum. I had a 280X, my GTX 1070 is the first nVidia card I've put in my personal PC for over a decade.

    Very happy with it thus far.

    Blackfyre oh familiar face from oc.net :) Having 126% power limit on your msi is so damn nice man! Even though i'm very-very pleasant with my palit, but it's 114% power limit is a huge difference in regard to OC...

    Yeah I only started using my account @overclock.net recently. I've been a long-term member here, but the community for the GTX 1070 is larger over there.

    Sooner or later someone will unlock the voltage on the GTX 1070 and create a BIOS for all of us to use. Probably with 150% Power Limit too.

    :banana:

    Right now though I am very satisfied with the card, getting 2101 MHz playing the Witcher 3 (which is modded like crazy for me, looks truly epic) after using the Voltage/Frequency curve.

    I understand your mood 100%!! :)) Same stuff, imagine my reaction to beauty of DSR gaming after faithful 560ti :tomcat:
