I was having trouble reaching a stable overclock on my eVGA 1070 SC since i have Micron VRAM=pewp! Spoiler http://cdn.overclock.net/8/8c/8c6bc5b3_Capture7.PNG My old overclock flopped between 2100/2025/2088/2037, etc. Only +363 on the memory. 112% power limit I was getting so frustrated so I did some research on different reference card/power/VRM phases. I did something crazy. I flashed the ASUS STRIX OC vBIOS to my 1070SC.

Even after the thermal pad/vrm issues. My card is not effected due to it being a BestBuy special. I think I will try another AIB partner next time though, power limit is really low on the 1070 SC.
