    You have to use the curve editor ctrl + f. Say you want your max frequency maxed at 1v. Slide the point at 1v to your desire max frequency and do the same for every point that is on the right of that.

    If you're using the 8A Bios, this will cause strange things to happen because boost 2 clocks are disabled on it. So the voltage winds up being locked at the lower speed tier instead of the point you selected (you'll have to experiment to see).

    The CTRL+F is not working, is there a specific msi afterburner version to use ? are you using the 8a vbios ? is it working at 1v ?

    Do you have some strange thing like falkentyne is saying ?

    I am using 0D vbios from gt62vr 6re. I am using the latest version of msi afterburner.

    The 8A vbios disables boost 3.0 because 2016 gtx 1070 from msi crashed. It is mostly voltage related. I flashed the official 0D vbios to test the theory. Locking the voltage to 10.12v, the crash does not happen during boost 3.0. I am using a buddy laptop for this test because his laptop was crashing during boost 3.0. So now we have two choices for people that crash during boost 3.0. Flash the 8A vbios and overclock or use afterburner and lock the voltage to 1.012v.

    Ah, so it's a simple power state then. Probably some resistor on the MXM card that is set to the wrong ohm value. So, you change the resistor, which changes the voltage signal, change the revision of the card, and presto. :)

    BTW I'm using the 8A Bios on a non crashing 1070 because I TDP modded it and even though I can't exceed 1900 mhz without crashing, I can run 1886 mhz +250 mhz overclock (.875-.887v) 24/7 and the clocks remain fixed at 1886 mhz, with no throttling. The 0D Bios with +250 mhz overclock would boost to boost 3 clocks, meaning 2086 mhz maximum and signal VREL and be jumping all over the place because of the temperature limit (42C) which cannot be changed (42C temp limit affects only boost 3 clocks. The throttling temp affects boost 2 clocks, which can be changed in the Pascal Bios Editor).

    Yup, this is why I have 8A in my laptop as well.

    Oh not sure about stuttering.
