    Those idle temperatures on water relates to my already high ambient temperatures of ~27c ( or 82f ) because i live in the Caribbean island of Puerto Rico and i did not have my Air Conditioner on.

    It's doing pretty good for such high ambient temperatures 24/7 365 days a year where i live , there's not such thing as winter in Puerto Rico , no snow or cold weather over here , it's always summer time in Puerto Rico ~27c every day :D . Water cooling like air cooling always will be dependent on the ambient temperatures hence why my temperatures even at idle can never exceed the ambient temperatures at this time of 27c ( Unless i go sub-zero on Liquid Nitrogen , but i already retired from extreme overclocking , so no more Liquid Nitrogen Benching for me ). As the fellow Guru already explained water cooling do exceeds at full loads and not idle temps. What's your ambient temperatures like ?

    Ambient is like 21-22 in my room, so that explains it ^^

    Hi there

    Have look my Titan X SC with 1475MHz OC and Raijintek Morpheus II and EK Vardar F3-120 1850RPM run on idle around 18C and load I've never seen more than 45C with fans running at 1000RPM,running fans at higher speeds,doesn't make any difference to temps

    Right now Titan X SC is running same OC with EK WB and idle temps are 18-19C and load temps are 34C

    GTX 1080 FE has run 29C on idle with fan running at 33% and fan has been very audible for my ears and on load sounded like jet fighter,now is running with EK WB and temps on idle are at 21C and load temps are in 36C during long hours of rendering(GPU usage on both GPU is at 100%)

    My old Zotac GTX1080 AMP has needed to run 85% fan profile to keep temps in 74-78C when I rendered with both GPU,with single card rendering,temps has been in 64-67C and idle has been in 26-29C

    My reason for going with full custom water loop has been to lower temps for GPU and if I will lower CPU temps then I'm very happy

    Hope this helps

    Thanks,Jura



    Hi there

    Yours ambient temps are high and due this you have such high idle temps on GPU there,which is normal

    What water temp do you have on yours loop ?

    Other option is go with water chiller,this can lower water temps and can lower GPU temps and CPU temps,I planned to use that,but in my case I don't have space where to put chiller

    Hope this helps and hopefully you will receive yours card soon

    Thanks,Jura

    The water on my loop is 27c right now , reading was done by my Coolant temperature display on a Maelstrom 5 1/4" Dual Bay Reservoir , here:


    [​IMG]



    I have tried water chillers , single stage phase change coolers on my PCs before for 24/7 operation , but i would not recommend doing that as you will always run the chance of condensation and water can find it's way thru the PC components easily , that was my biggest problem while trying sub-sero temperatures at -42c for 24/7 daily PC using a Vapochill LS single stage phase change unit ( Condensation ) , same as my water chiller i always had lots of condensation problems even at -15c.

    In 2008 i did a monster built with a highly overclocked Core i7 Core i7 965 Etreme Edition cooled by a Vapochill LS Single Stage Phase Change 24/7 CPU , 4 way crossfire on full cover water blocks 2x 4870x2 etc... You can take a look at my built log from 2008 here: ( finished built ) http://forums.guru3d.com/showthread.php?t=281297&page=7 ( beginning of that built ) http://forums.guru3d.com/showthread.php?t=281297&highlight=zeus , that was one of a kind :) , at that time not a lot of people were using sub-sero temperatures or high end custom water loops to cool their cpus and gpus , good old times :)

    Finally i received my new card today :) , it is a lot better than the last one , this one boost to 1974Mhz and stays there out of the box without touching anything , it got Micron memory. I'm going to take my time and test it a few days on stock cooler acx 3.0 before i install my EK water block.

    actually the boost can reach 1999 MHz w/o touching anything.

    try view from MSI:AB

    I have a quick question about the EVGA GTX 1070 FTW. Im not comfortable taking the card apart to apply the thermal pads, but I am comfortable flashing both BIOSes. From what I read that I can get away with only flashing the BIOSes without the thermal pads. Has anyone just flash the BIOSes and not apply the pads and was able to get better OC results due to the increase in fan speed?

    Is there a special reason why eVGA limits this to something below 2GHz?

    No idea , i have just found out today. My guess would be stability.

    Hi there gys ,I have a quastion regarding BIOS update for my GPU.I'm sorry if it has been already answered but I don't have the time to read all 50+ pages, also if this is not the right tread please let me know.
    So three months ago I bought that GPU(1070) and I have no complains about it, the performance is great, the temps are great and the clocks out of the box are also good(2025MHz when I start the game and lowers to 2000-2012MHz when it heat up).
    The problem is that it is really bad overclocker ,+91(core) and +200(Vram) and it crashes with the checkboard pattern.
    I have the feeling that this is happening due to unstable power delivery because if I downcloack the Vram to the lowest possible with AB I can hit 2169Mhz on the core,it even passes FireStrike with that setting although there is not much of improvement because of the low memory clock.
    To the point I've read about the issue with Micron memory chips(like the ones found on my card)and I was wondering if some kind of BIOS update would help.So I would apreciate some advise ,should I flash the BIOS to newer ver.
    If the answer is yes how exactly do I do this.I checked and downloaded some BIOS from the ASUS website but it is only an executable(.exe) file ,do I just run it or what.
    Thank you in advance.Best regards.

    if can hit 2 GHz by default who wanna buy FTW at the 1st place?

    by the way, we can OC manually by ourselves.

    Yes I know. I was just curious if that was an eVGA issue or "speciality", as other cards (the ones I've had incluced) boost above 2GHz out of the box. Mine has a custom board though, so I thought this might be a FE / reference layout thing.

    @frantic: Just install the bios and check again. I don't think 2.1GHz is a bad overclocker, there's little to nothing more to wish for. The RAM could (should normally) go a little higher but I'd check performance before and after.
    Very often, "compatibility" updates don't change much more than give you higher latencies for memory. It'll run at higher clock rates, but won't be much (if any) faster than before.

    Radical_53 Thanks for the quick replay.I can hit 2.1GHZ and above only when the memory is severely underclocked.

    And what do you mean by just install it,back in the day we used to copy the ROM file on to a USB stick and then re-flash it in BIOS(I haven't done that in years) now what ,I just run the .exe file that I downloaded from ASUS website?Anyway thank you very much maybe I'll just stick with that one as I am perfectly satisfied with the performance gaming wise.

    Before you run the the file backup your original bios with GPU-Z

    I would strongly recommend installing the thermal pads or send your video card to eVGA and they will do it for you. As it stands right now those 2 options are ready available for you and it really does help a lot , cooler video card = higher and stable higher overclocks + longer life for the video card. Go to eVGA website to the forum , all the information you need is there. Also google gamer nexus on youtube and other reviewers have done that already. Do it it is really worth it.

    The problem is that this is not dual BIOS GPU and if I f**k it up the backed-up BIOS won't be much of a help,and I obviously don't wanna do that :)

    Gigabyte gaming G1 here with micron memory and the latest bios. Best overclock I could get was 2050mhz core/2249mhz memory(that's what it reads in GPUZ when running heaven)
    Voltage has little to zero effect on improving stability. Any increases on either the core or the memory results in artifacts. Wish I could find a way to push it further. Little disappointing but still performs well enough.

    tensai28 can you get higher OC on the core if you don't OC the Vram or even underclock it.I'm asking because if I underclock the Vram(-502MHz which is the lowest you get with AB) I can get it to hit 2164MHz on the core and even pass trough FireStrike, but at default Vram clock I can't get it stable above 2088, overckocking both is disaster.Maximum I could get is +52 core and +190 mem which results in 2088core/4192mem.I understand that this is not bad but I feel it could do better with more adequate power delivery.Thats why I'm considering flashing the vBIOS I just don't want to brick my card as I am happy with it's gaming perfomance which is why I bought it in the first place.

    How would you been able to do that You simple make an backup the original bios there is no bios editor available for Pasal yet !
