4x Titan XP, a 10 core 6950, some LN2 and an insane overclocker

This dude is called Kingpin for a reason. Don't try this at home :lol:

Amazon was a bit faster than expected. I got a delivery from Amazon Prime Today. Nice Zotac GTX1070Mini.
Installation took me less than 10minutes. Easy fit. I can probably fit a 24cm card in there. But this is good. Some room for airflow left behind the card. Did a quick dust clean with compressed air. Basically every time a case goes open ;)

Initial test, straight from the box. All stock.

More later :party:

Edit: FireStrike surprised me. That is a massive performance bump. And this little bugger clocks almost 1.900Mhz out of the box. It stabilizes at around 1850Mhz. No OC, no extra voltage. I leave it like this.
I already knew Pascal rocks. But this confirms it even more.

Fairly good, hopefully your card won't thermal/voltage/boost throttle itself to much in your small case.

I did a TimeSpy bench run myself just now.

And alittle comparing

EDIT:

I wanted to test my card running it stock in TimeSpy, but my card keeps crashing the benchmark, so i don't know what is going on, but it works when it is overclock strangely enough...

Yet another nail the coffin for the 1070 FTW ... :doh:

But i think TimeSpy is a GPU power whore as it makes the card use my power than it can deliver with default settings, so i need to bump up the voltage for it to work.

Tweaked some settings without OC. :geek:

Mem at a more aggressive XMP profile and after a clean reboot +70 points, lol :lol:

I leave it at this. Works fine for me. The new GFX brings the whole PC more to life. :mrgreen:

That's great :)

Well you could add +350-400 mhz to the VRAM memory as that would have a big impact on the GPU performance and you wouldn't heat up the case anymore or less by it ;)

I run a overclock of +475 mhz on the VRAM on my card, and +60 mhz the core, and it works pretty well.

And about the stock settings in the post before then it was EVGA's Perscion X's game overlay that caused it to crash.

A mild OC on the Vram (+250) brings another 50 points in TimeSpy

But the difference wont be noticable in gaming, so i will switch back to default values. :geek:

With my new GTX 1070 FTW about to be delivered later today i thought i would do some benchmarks to see how much better or god forbid worse the new card will be.

Max reliable overclock:
+60 mhz core, +475 mhz vram and 100% voltage at 112% TDP

--- Run with Shadow play on ---
TimeSpy: 5925 points
