    The GPU Overclocking Database

    Hi guys, this is my first time posting on the forum so i'm not sure this is the right place. Hopefully it is. 2 months ago I build my first ever PC. Posted it on builds.gg if you want to check it out - https://builds.gg/builds/mighty-micro-6596 Since then, I have read and watched as much as I could and this past weekend i felt ready to explore the OC world. I have a 1070 Ti Cerberus A8G and after 3 days of messing with MSI Afterburner, i think i pushed it to the max for stability. Wanted to post my results and also get some feedback on things i could do better and if you guys were able to push yours further. PC specs: i7 8700k @ 4.7Ghz all cores 16GB Corsair vengeance 3000Mhz Asus 1070 Ti Cerberus A8G 970EVO 250GB NVme 1.2TB Intel SSD Process: I used a combination of Kombustor, valley, Superposition (the game mode is fun) as well as firestrike. But mostly kombustor as i like how it has an artifact meter that goes crazy when you go over the limit. I would also play BF5 (Campaign) & Forza H4 (built in benchmark) in between for real world testing. MSI AB settings: unlocked voltage control and monitoring, enabled force constant voltage, maxed out core voltage and a hefty fan curve to stay at 70C under full load. At first, i didn't want to touch the core voltage but when i reached +180 on core, boost wouldn't go any higher as it was hitting stock voltage of 1.062V. I figured since i got a binned card, it could probably handle more voltage. In this screenshot, i was making final adjustments for stability. When i started this session, the core clock was +235 and memory clock +350. Artifacts would come up every 6-8mins. I started going down on the OC by -5 until i settled on what you see +220 on core and +330 on memory. At the time of screenshot, it had been a good 30mins since the artifact counter hadn't gone up. I ran it for another 30mins for good measure and it was good. This is Pre-OC. my stock clocks were 1847 on the core and 4006(8012) on memory. Post Stable-OC. my current stable OC numbers are 2088 on the core and 4333(8666) on memory. Conclusion: In benchmarks and in games, i gained about 10fps from the OC. I don't know why but 10 doesn't get me too hyped given the hours put into it or maybe that's about what is expected when you overclock. What do you guys think ? Do these numbers sound about right for a 1070 Ti ? Can I get more fps by messing with the clocks differently ? I pushed the core clock more than memory as i read the higher the better for games vs memory. All in all, this was a fun experience. I am able to play BF5 on high settings @60-75Hz on my LG 38" 1440p+ ultrawide. I learned a lot and looking forward to my next card. Thanks
