EVGA 1070 FTW - Overclocking Potential

The 1070 FTW is a pre-overclocked card.

What overclocks on top of this pre-overclocking can I expect? I've also noticed that most specs say the card runs at ~1700 MHz but I'm seeing my run at 2000 MHz. Basically, it seems like it's self-overclocking.

All GTX 1000-series cards self-overclock (GPU Boost 3.0, by Nvidia's terms).

2000Mhz is what a vast majority of GTX 1070s end up running at.

Can't push it any further or am I by adding the +100 MHz?

Most 1070s can run slightly higher frequencies when manually overclocked.

I think I run about 2100 or slightly under in most games, once it hits 60c which is the max I see gaming it throttles like 20-30mhz. If you want consistent oc then aggressive fan curve and great airflow is your friend! I get like 20500 graphics score on firestrike for comparison for you
