MSI Afterburner Question

1 minute ago, WickedStarfish said:

what does OCing the Mem Clock do? 

and what is a safeish OC for a 2070 Gaming Z In your opinion?

It doesn't do much, the Core clock is more important on Nvidia cards (but on amd vega memory clock is important),

I have no idea about the 2070, because it has the gddr6 memory.

I recommend looking at some 2070 overclocking videos to see some examples.

Why does it say this

i thought feeding it more power would have been better for the OC but it takes 10MHz off of it?

It probably thermal throttles fro that +100% overvoltage. 

Try to max out the power limit, and then see what the temps are, to see if you can raise the voltage that high.

im currently running a scan with +0% core voltage and 105% power limit

But why not overclock yourself? More fun imo, also you can get better overclocks than with scanners usually.

I have the 2070 armour and my OC on memory is +500mhz I believe and +180mhz on the core. 

 

Im not saying you should use these numbers but just as reference

I think OCscanner spat out like +186mhz for core.

I set power limit to max and voltage as well.
