    No you can't, the display is lvds, edp is needed for a gtx 1070 to work. There is no edp to lvds converter like the gt83vr, gt83 etc.

    Only signed unaltered vBIOS work via software flash. Everything else needs a programmer.

    For instance flashing zotac 1070 with MSI vBIOS is one of the few exceptions. Otherwise Pascal requires programmer to tinker with.

    Bro I told you to use a programmer, there is a reason as @TheReciever said otherwise you will get a bricked card, especially with pascal

    In a nutshell.

    If my understanding is correct, some sectors are not available to rewrite while its in use. That could be incorrect though, Im not a veteran modder when it comes to software manipulation.
