    Dell should be offering extending warranty just because of this issue.

    Hey guys, so I'm just starting to UV my 2070 through Afterburner. But I have a couple of questions.

    First of all, what's a good voltage for this card?

    Currently, I'm able to keep 1900MHz @ .875V.

    I'm also able to boost to 2000MHz @ 1V.

    Are these decent for the 2070?

    I don't have any temp issues with my 2070, in fact it runs really cool. But I figured I could OC and UV at the same time to gain performance and lower the temps at the same time.

    Edit: Also, I'm using GPU Z render test for a baseline, but sometimes it says "Application has been blocked from accessing Graphics Hardware." Anyone know what this is about?

    I have to close it and open it again to start the render test. Does this just mean the voltage is unstable?

    Also, checked Event Viewer and recieved a warning that display driver nvlddmkm stopped responding and has successfully recovered, is this due to too low/too high of an UV/OC?

    Alright. Thanks.

    It seems 1900MHz @ .900V doesn't throw any errors, so I'll keep it at that for now.

    As a precaution, or it didn't go any further?

    If you have looked at the chassis design, you can see the MB's shape is designed the way so fans most likely can suck in air from several places. Even from the grills in front if there is holes there. But the airflow is probably too weak to cool the power delivery properly, both for the MB and graphics.
