  1. Just in case anyone has problems with your MSI GTX 1070 Gaming X 8G…

    – I had artifacts and freezing from a used MSI GTX 1070 Gaming X

    – it was even keeping below 65c while artifacting

    – i flashed to the latest bios, no difference.

    4 screws and three small connectors later…
    I dismantled the 1070 and reapplied thermal paste, even though it looked ok.

    Fixed, no artifacting – no freezing – Nvidia boost 3 immediately ramped it to 2050mhz auto-overclock on a quick GPU-Z render test.

    Being a 3+ year old card and still don't want to upgrade, i recommend you re-paste your 1070 as the paste could be fairly dry by now.

  2. The thermal compound is pretty bad after ~2 years. Mine got up to 84°C…now after replacing it with liquid metal its around 20°C cooler. One of the biggest changes is that I can reach a little bit over 2.1Ghz before that I got to 2012Mhz while gaming. Mine card has a power consumption around 210-230W with oc according to HWiNFO64.

  3. I added this bad boy to my very first computer project and been running it for a few months now and I must say I am highly impressed with this card. If you are thinking about getting this card I would say don't even think twice!

  4. Syntax Error. msi 1070 gtx gaming x Coil whine error. msi didnt changed and fix it. they do not accept. but experts say that my card has coil whine….what I have to do…card has bought april 2017…please tell me to solution….

  5. I'm building my first pc, and after getting everything wired and plugging in the monitor, I get an error message telling me to power down and connect the pcie cable(s) to this graphics card. Thing is, they're clearly connected, the gpu's fans and led's are running! Pls help ;_;

  6. Undecided between this one or the Zotac Founder Edition for my mini ITX….blower may help temperature inside the case, can the founder be overclocked to match the MSI out of the box OC?

  7. Which card should I get for gaming in 1080p 60ghz? The MSI GTX 970 4g, 980 ti or the 1070 Gaming X 8g?

  8. +Hardware Unboxed I am about to buy a card and i am very confused which is better as the prices almost so close on Amazon now ( only 6 USD difference ) which isn't a big deal , between MSI gaming ( without X ) GTX 1070 or Gigabyte G1 gaming GTX 1070 ? or should i get the X version ?

    Gigabyte seems to be faster core clock out of the box but had very loud and noisy fans and cheap plastic design compared to last gen and so many people RMA their cards because of that , while this one despite being too strong and aesthetically more appealing , has bigger memory clock which has no significant effect on performance and seems struggling to increase with core clock despite it have two power cords 6+8 pins and consumer too much power than Gigabyte which seems a huge let down compared to the results i have seen, it should beat Gigabyte in terms of speed but it didn't

    Can you please make a video comparing those two exact models because seems like the whole internet has no one ever thing to compare such relatively close rivalry cards before, Cheers and keep up the good work

  9. how do you use gpu in your pc without putting it inside the case ?

    my case's maximum gpu length it supports is 290mm but i want to buy zotac gtx 1070 amp, its 300mm long 3:

    is there any way to use it ? like PCIe express gpu riser or something like this

  10. After watching quite a lot of videos, hopefully this will be my next GPU. And it happens to be the Gaming X 😀 I didn't notice it before. Good video mate 🙂

  11. Beastly card, but might want to consider getting at least an I7 to ensure that there won't be any bottlenecks.

  12. what's the actual boost clock for this MSI 1070? and power limit on full load? without any overclocking(and on gaming mode)
    thanks man and I love your accent lol

  13. Great video man pros & cons below.
    Pros: practical benchmarking I love how on bf4 1440p you only used 2x AA most don't. Great detail over showing maximum power draw not average.
    Cons: spice up your into with a little bit of humor or something it was a little bit generic. Or inntroduce more slides while you talk in your intro. I don't want to say cut down your intro but if you're going to talk for 2mins plus while the camera is focused on you try to make a few tech jokes.

  14. It would have been even faster if your oberclocked it to the max, but when/if I get this I gues I'd leave it at maybe 2200MHz if it can reach that when im running future demanding games, everyday gaming would be left at 2000MHz, this is a beast of a graphics card 🙂

  15. Great video!! So glad I found you; great written reviews + great videos. Sub'd and bookmark'd. Far more in-depth than other channels like JaysTwoCents or AwesomeSauce.

  16. I just wanna take a second to thank you for always being so nice. I had to unsub from another tech youtuber recently due to the amount of salt and just plain nastiness. You are always so pleasant and just really likeable. I wish you all the success! More people like you are needed, especially as content creators. Thanks mate!
