Strix 1070 overclock

I'm in Asus tweak and the max boost it will allow me is 1764mhz but when I bench in Uni engine it boosts to 1900mhz.

 

What can I overclock safely too and how do I know what is the actual boost as Asus tweak isn't displaying it?

Dont use ASUS Tweak, go download MSI Afterburner or EVGA Precision X. With those, you can likely get away with a 100-125mhz offset on the core clock most likely and boost up to about 2050-2100mhz.

Are you talking about it’s reading the boost speed of the bios? That isn’t gonna change. Gpu boost is what’s getting you to 1900. You can overclock like normal and it will end up all the same. Would be better to bring up the graph.

i use precision x for the overlay instead of actually watching the app.

Asus tweak reads the boot clock at 1683Mhz (non overclock). But when I run benchmarks it states that its 1900 or so and even goes up to that in the Asus tweak monitor, but NOT on the overclocking side of the program. How the hell am I supposed to know how much to use if it does this.

If it’s showing it to you, it’s working. It’s not gonna change anything else based on that. It’s a set base and boost on the bios. It isn’t gonna change the bios for anything. 

 

Its telling you what it’s currently doing via gpu boost. That’s how gpu boost works, it’s always gonna be the same. You add as much as you can until it’s unstable. 

Just because you add to the clock won’t mean it will be an exact number. That’s what hard clocking will do but, that requires a bios flash.

I couldn't follow what you were saying.

 

What I am saying is that Asus tweak states my boost clock is less than what it actually boosts too in benchmarks.

But the boost clock on it does In fact change at some point, as in it will lower if you aren’t gaming or something?
