We used our ASRock Killer SLI/AC with 7800X 4.8GHz for all the game testing but it's not as good a video card overclocker as our ASUS Maximus Apex Z270 with 7700K. For overclocking the MSI GTX 1070Ti we went with the 7700K running at 4.8GHz on triple radiator EKWB cooling with our Corsair Vengeance Ram kit running at 3000MHz which should be obtainable by most 7700K owners and 3000MHz on the ram should cover a lot of readers. This gives us a better overclocking platform and more end users can afford 7700K and a decent motherboard with 3000MHz Ram. So our overclocking results are reproducible, easily matched speeds and a good measure for your overclocking adventures on your Asus Strix GeForce GTX 1070 Ti Gaming Advanced.
Now Overclocking we went with our ASUS Maximus IX Apex Z270 setup with 7700K running at 4.8GHz and Corsair Vengeance Ram running at 3000MHz, the Maximus Board is just a better video card overclocker and more end users use the 7700K than the HEDT 2066 the 7800X sits on. This gives us better overclocking with speeds our readers can achieve on a more affordable platform and being so is more pertinent to a larger group than the HEDT setup.
Our stock speed shot of GPU-Z shows everything on our Asus card is as it should be.
At stock speed, we got a good score of 8769 which is about what we expect from a 1070 Ti.
GPU Tweak II wouldn't give us the option for more core speed so we went with MSI Afterburner to achieve our best OC which gave a score of 9571 and a core speed 1789MHz and Boost of 1865MHz. On memory, we pumped up the volume to 2206MHz real 8824MHz effective. So we got a nice core increase of +182MHz not too shabby at all, and the GDDR5 we got a nice +407MHz so it looks to be a good overclocker!
