Hi guys been awile and I'm out of the loop. But My graphics card was going to try and overclock so I downloaded MSI afterburner and it already shows way over spec.

Acoording to MSI https://www.msi.com/Graphics-Card/GeForce-GTX-1070-Ti-AERO-8G
Boost Clock / Base Clock
1683 MHz / 1607 MHz

However I'm showing 1873 Mhz with nothing done... just opened up program.

whats going on here

GTX 1070 Ti FE Overclocking
Max Boost Clock1898MHz2078MHz
Memory Clock8Gbps8.8Gbps
Max Voltage1.062v1.093v

looks fine to me, if the founder edition is that? just did a quick google tho

o i c the original card is indeed listed at 1683 but it might be a typo .. a 80mhz boost!!! or they flashed a diff bios for the stock..

no you are right, the version of the card you have is indeed lower then what is showing. you purchased new or from another member/ebay? (((most likely used since this nice bios is already on your card)

I purchased on ebay already had water block preinstalled so I stole it for $400. Just EK water block is $154... so basically card costed me less than $250...quite an upgrade from my 670 GTX.

well in my head its gotta be a diff bios if they went to the bother of installing a water block :) you can overclock it some more looks great.
