I've FINALLY overclocked my GPU!

After about two weeks of learning (just built my first ever PC) I wanted to share my results with my gpu. I couldn't find any reliable information about anyone else with this card on YouTube, or any internet forums for that matter  The leading video has a dude underclocking his by 65 MHz. I've heard of undervolting to get lower temps, but underclocking to get more FPS? No thanks.


Voltage: 1200

Power: +20(max allowed)

Core Clock: 2114 MHz (+50 over stock OC)

Mem Clock: 1800 MHz (+50 over stock)

Fan: User curve up to 100% at 50°c


I got about a 9.5% boost to my benchmark scores in Heaven, Time Spy, and Fire Strike. More importantly, my gaming is not crashing and is able to run 4k 60FPS(THE Outer Worlds). About 5.5% of my boost was surprisingly from adjusting ONLY the power and fan curve, leaving the core at 2064 and memory at 1750.


MSI Afterburner was definitely the best to do this with, as Adrenalin seems to reset settings every time you boot. My monitor is 4k 60 hz for anyone curious as to o why I stated those benchmarks. I will be transitioning to a new monitor in the next couple months to do 1440/144.


I now have overclocked my CPU, my RAM, and my GPU. and I have never been more satisfied with an accomplishment (as far as hobbies go, I love my kids and family).

Pretty awesome you got your settings tuned in. I've tried OC'ing my 1070 before but reached the max it can go. Had to upgrade it anyway but I don't even touch the settings on it except the fan curve to get better performance.
