I'm curious, what clock speeds are you guys getting with your 1070 cards and what make/model 1070 do you have? This is my ASUS Dual GTX 1070's normal 24/7 settings (using Unigen Heaven for a GPU load) My core clock speed will get as high as 2073 MHz with these settings-

1070 Ti Aorus, I got roughly the same core, but the memory was in the stratosphere with +450 (whatever that equates to in GRAM speed). Rock stable.

Damn, hadn't even tried to take the memory that high.Let me see how high I can take my memory.

Wouldn't you know it, I just made a full benchmark run in Heaven with a +496 OC on my memory. I did bump core voltage up a little bit, but not sure if I need it yet.-

Typical folding. Since day one my RAM speed was less then advertised so I upped it via MSI. Never game, never took part in the who got a bigger Pe..s competitions, just run 24/7 foliding without one bad return. MSI 1070 Z. @BarbaricSoul you could (if you feel you need more speed) up the power limit.

Nice. With the power throttle on the 1070's, it's safe to push the software voltage and power limits to the max. In fact, it's the only way to do it. The memory bump made a significant increase in 3D Mark scores as I was testing it. I think it was Hynix memory if I recall.

Then I got my Vega 64, undervolted and got it to rise at least 10% above the Aorus, but holy crap was that card HOT

From TPU reviews ....

Card Core Clock / Memory Clock / (FPS)

Gigabyte GTX 1070 XtremeGaming 2134 MHz / 2425 MHz (141.0)
MSI GTX 1070 Gaming Z 2114 MHz / 2365 MHz (140.3)
MSI GTX 1070 Gaming X 2101 MHz / 2420 MHz (139.7)
MSI GTX 1070 QuickSilver 2101 MHz / 2290 MHz (138.0)
EVGA GTX 1070 SC 2088 MHz / 2370 MHz (134.0)
NVIDIA GTX 1070 FE 2088 MHz2 / 2330 MHz (133,7)

Be aware that higher clocks does not usually coincide with highest FPS ... yet in this sampling it pretty much does. Also I start with Power Limit and voltage at max... but as I dial things in, I have found that I sometimes get even better numbers turning it down a bit and at same core / memory, fps does increase. My typical approach.

1. Start with settings that were successful by a web reviewer (didn't find your card so used this ... Asus 1070 Strix).


  • Core Voltage : +100%
  • Power Limit : 120%
  • Temp. limit : 92C (leave at default if this makes you nervous)
  • Core Clock : + 100 MHz
  • Memory Clock : +600 MHz (= 9,216 MHz effective data-rate) leave this at default for now

2. Do test run with 3 or so of your favorite benchmarks, record results. If you have artifacts or other issues, adjust downward ... if not move core upwards in whatever increments you feel comfy with an retest. I use a spreadsheet yo make table of core and memory speeds.

---------------------------Memory Clock 4000 ------------------------------------Memory Clock 4200 ------------------------------------Memory Clock 4400 ------------------------------------Memory Clock 4600
Core 2050 / Heaven4 97.2 fps / Benchmark 2 / Benchmark 3
Core 2075 Heaven4 98.9 fps / Benchmark 2 / Benchmark 3
Core 2100 Heaven4 100.6 fps / Benchmark 2 / Benchmark 3
Core 2125 Heaven4 100.1 fps / Benchmark 2 / Benchmark 3
Core 2150 FAIL / Benchmark 2 / Benchmark 3

3. Now I'll go back to Core 2050 and try memory clocks say from 4000 - 4800. I have never gotten a result whereby the highest core clock and highest memory clock got the best result together. a Core of 2125 wth memory at default might give your your highest fps and 4800 memory your highest fps with core at default, but the best combo might be say Core 2100 and memory 4650.

Here's my 1080 doing a render test.

+120 core +500 memory

Most of the OC ing on air can be done without touching core voltage. In my case, I get the best results also leaving my Power Target on 100%. Temps level out a bit lower, so my final clocks are a bit higher than pushing the voltage button hard. Going full benchmark mode I can hit 2100+, using maximum voltage % fanspeed, I can then push core to +150. Not worth the extra noise IMO. John's example above here also shows similar behaviour with his Core 2125 run getting lower performance - its close, but likely to do with how GPU boost needs to work harder to keep temps in check.

During long gaming sessions, clocks level out at 1984mhz by the way. That is at 75-80C. Pascal drops a boost bin (*13mhz) every 5 C from 50C or so onwards. Temperature is key.

It is, in all fairness, quite boring to overclock these cards :D

I've got an early GTX 1070 (MSI Armor OC) that can only manage 1961MHz stable on the core, but is currently sitting at +700MHz on its Samsung memory (=2352MHz/9.4GHz). I'm pretty sure the memory can go higher, I just haven't bothered.

Why haven you raised power target, then you oc it? That cost performance, then power draw gets high, as it will throttle gpu clock.

Pretty much in the same boat as you mine maxes out at 1950 and can do +600 on the mem. I've thought about doing hard mods to remove the power limit and volt mod the card but I'm not sure if the effort is worth it for an extra 100-200mhz

Raise your power limit, Try to find a clock speed in which your card stays instead of boosting up and down all over the place , eliminates some micro stuttering. Raise Vcore only at the very far end, gave me only 25mhz at the end since vcore eats into your power target budget. You will be limited by your power target every time at the end of the day with 10xx 20xx cards.

I just yanked both power limit and vcore to max and rolled with it. Should probably try dropping vcore a little.

Been running my G1 Gaming GTX 1070 with this profile for a while now and it's been stable.

Clock speed peaks at 2114MHz sometimes.

upping my voltages and power limit to the max only gets me an extra 8 Mhz. I guess my GPU is a 2-2.1 Ghz core. Highest clock speed I've seen on a successful bench run is 2073 MHz.

My card can do +825 on the vram (samsung) for benchmarking, it's core doesn't want to OC well, have ran it's core +70 or so achieved only with the OC scanner in msi afterburner.
For gaming I use voltage 100%, powerlimit 126, temp 92C, vram +596.

So temperature is holding you back. 2073 MHz is OK. I would stop at that a call it a day. A dedicated water loop with the radiator placed outside with 4x1000 rpms and 480 mm rad for your now and future CPUs would be the next step but that is work and money. A RTX 2070 would be cheaper if the aim is to up FPS and it's only 20 W, same as the pump and the fans.

My card can do +825 on the vram (samsung) for benchmarking, it's core doesn't want to OC well, have ran it's core +70 or so achieved only with the OC scanner in msi afterburner.
For gaming I use voltage 100%, powerlimit 126, temp 92C, vram +596.
DAMN, +596 on RAM is very nice. My card has Micron RAM. I can't get it to higher than +496 without problems.

So temperature is holding you back. 2073 MHz is OK. I would stop at that a call it a day. A dedicated water loop with the radiator placed outside with 4x1000 rpms and 480 mm rad for your now and future CPUs would be the next step but that is work and money. A RTX 2070 would be cheaper if the aim is to up FPS and it's only 20 W, same as the pump and the fans.
I don't think temps are my limit. I can ramp the fan up to 100% and keep my GPU below 65'c.

I don't think temps are my limit. I can ramp the fan up to 100% and keep my GPU below 65'c.

I know that we have different GPUs and we use them differently. My experiences is that I have to mine below 60-63 degree C to gain the extra 13-26 MHz. My speed is fixed to 60% and that gives me 59-64 C, OK the room is less ten 20 C since I have a window slightly open (smoker). I will post a auto fan and a 100 % fan in a few minute.

27 C and tree steps (39 MHz). Same job = load. You are limited by temperature but as I wrote you need an external radiator or a sweater. I estimate that my room is 18-20 C.

So +825 is not game stable for you?

I had an MSI 1070 Gaming X. +150 on the core and 'just under' +700 offset on the memory with +10 Vcore and +120 power limit. I lucked out with getting a card with samsung ram instead of the Micron ram. I bought my 1070 just after they made the announcement about the change of ram.


::EDIT::

Searching back through my previous posts I mentioned +660 on the memory, but I am sure i had it much higher then that. It was probably closer to +680 but i knocked it down a little for safety.

You can probably still see my results on TPUs 3Dmark and other benchmark threads

one thing I have noticed, I can't put my power limit as high as you guys can. I can only get up to 112%, unlike the 126% that @mstenholm is running.

My card running the Unigen Heaven benchmark-

I think it is game stable, I can even run the latest 3d mark benchmark with no problems.
Just don't want to push it too far for gaming ha.

I have a PNY one with Microm ram, at stock. gpu 1519mhz with 1709 boost, 2002 mhz on mem, but during benching most prog report around 1700 mhz on gpu but unigine valley says 1923 mhz. Heaven 1785-1890 mhz, typically 1810-1850 mhz. But again i didnt set any clock, just put card in and use :)
