    Anyone know what the average overclock for 2070 is? Core/Mem.

    I've pushed my replacement GPU pretty far, but I'm not sure if I want to push it any further.

    Was able to run Firestrike with +883 memory. Score is still slightly below my old GPU, which I'm fine with, just don't want to push it too far.

    When I had the 2070 model I was doing +165/+1200

    Appreciate the input! I'm not able to go too high on the core, at least not as high as my last GPU. But it seems memory gives you the most gain anyways.

    Yes

    Now I am running a 3d rendering one in CPU and another on GPU together with the following settings using performance mode, undervolted quite a lot: the temperature is rising while the time goes by the time of the screenshot was 11 minutes of rendering and now I am writing is 17 minutes and the temps is now at 95c, it seems like once the temps hits 100c 101c not even full speed can put the temps down.

    Offset of frequency is completely irelevant without understanding what is your boost baseline ...
    You need to identify what is the base boost clock (the maximum clock where the GPU hits via boost 3.0)
    From there take a target and try to hit (this are very good GPU frecquencies) 2050 ... then 2060 ... then 2070 ... what is over that can be considered golden sample :)

    Check the 3dmark scores carefully - there are some wankers there using their graphic amplifiers and 2080Ti's to submitt better scores as 20xx (notebook) , so ignore the idiots.

    I've been talking to them for over a month now. It's still not available for consumers as far as I've been told thus far...

    I've had the same problem and never figured out how to fix it.

    Seems I'm getting pretty great temps with my 9700k/2070.

    Repasted with Kryonaut and put a -0.125 UV.

    An hour of Apex 70C Max temps on CPU, 57C average on balanced profile. I know apex isnt the most demanding game but the temps are pretty decent.

    Might try for a stable 5Ghz and see what kind of temps I can get. Hopefully I can get voltage between 1.25-1.3.

    Apex is actually pretty demanding for the CPU, I see 50 to 90 percent usage. Best test for the CPU so far is division 2. That pegs a 9700k at 90 to 100 percent constantly

    Really? Unfortunately Msi afterburner quit displaying the overlay on Apex for me so I haven't been able to check usage, that's good to know though.

    Unfortunately I sold my Division 2 Key so i cant run that bench.

    Might try realbench or Heaven for 5Ghz stability when I decide to do it.

    So far though temps have been really good, when I ran 5.1Ghz on firestrike a few times it only hit 70C-72C max. Ofc that only stresses the CPU at 100% for a few seconds though.

    Not really trying to go for crazy stability, just in game stability. Probably wont run prime or aida.

    Yeah I’m ticked the overlay doesn’t work in apex anymore. Want a division 2 key? I have a couple, send me a PM
