In need of help!

Hey guys!

i think i may have some problems with my Asus Strix 1070ti Advanced Edition, for all that matters i think it underperforms, my buddy just got an MSI GTX 1070 Gaming X and he has higher frames in games than me and we tested some furmark 1080p preset test and has a better score than me there aswell. Let me give a bit more details:

My Rig:
Motherboard: Asus Strix B350F-Gaming

CPU: Ryzen 7 1700x, running at stock speeds

Cooler: Coolermaster Masterliquid 240  

RAM: Corsair Vengeance 16GB, 3000mhz
GPU: Asus Strix 1070ti Advanced Edition
SSD: Western Digital Green 240gb
HDD: Seagate Barracuda 2TB

PSU: Corsair CX750M, 750w 

My friends rig:
Motherboard: Gigabyte AB350 Gaming 3
CPU: Ryzen 5 1600x also running on stock speeds
RAM: Corsair Vengeance 16GB, 3000mhz
GPU: MSI GTX 1070 Gaming X

HDD: WD Blue 1TB
PSU: Seasonic s12II 620w

He still has better frames than me and better results in gaming/benchmarks even when i run my CPU at 3.9ghz on all cores and i add another 100mhz on the GPU Boost Clock and 200mhz on the Memory clocks with the power targets slided to max. Any ideeas on what is going on? i cant seem to figure it out!

How about your GPU clock and memory speed? Same numbers or your friend has higher clock?

MSI Gaming X series is known to have good clock speed right out of the box and cooling performance and keep the clock speed stable.

My system specs:


CPU: Intel Core i7-8700K, 5GHz Delidded LM || CPU Cooler: Noctua NH-C14S w/ NF-A15 & NF-A14 Chromax fans in push-pull cofiguration || Motherboard: MSI Z370i Gaming Pro Carbon AC || RAM: Corsair Vengeance LPX DDR4 2x8Gb 2666 || GPU: EVGA GTX 1060 6Gb FTW2+ DT || Storage: Samsung 860 Evo M.2 SATA SSD 250Gb, 2x 2.5" HDDs 1Tb & 500Gb || ODD: 9mm Slim DVD RW || PSU: Corsair SF600 80+ Platinum || Case: Cougar QBX + 1x Noctua NF-R8 front intake + 2x Noctua NF-F12 iPPC top exhaust + Cougar stock 92mm DC fan rear exhaust || Monitor: ASUS VG248QE || Keyboard: Ducky One 2 Mini Cherry MX Red || Mouse: Logitech G703 || Audio: Corsair HS70 Wireless || Other: XBox One S Controler

Just looking at the specs of the two cards, the MSI does have a higher base clock of 1683 in it's default "silent mode" compared to the ASUS's 1607 in it's default "gaming" mode.  Also the stock overclock profile of the MSI is higher at 1797 compared to 1757 of the ASUS.  So, if you're overclocking the base profile 100MHz, you're not even pushing it tot it's stock OC profile, and actually decreasing it's performance.  Try a properly overclock and under volt and see how far you can push it. 


Also, the MSI card's overclock profile does add 100MHz to it's RAM speed as well. So you're overclock is potentially giving you a GPU clock speed of 1707MHz and 1000MHz on your RAm while the MSI card's stock overclock is 1797MHz and 900MHz on RAM.  Giving the MSi quite the edge on paper. 


What monitoring software are you using to compare your performance?


If you and your friend were to properly overclock and under volt your cards, your 1070ti should be able to get better performance.
