Question Msi Gtx 1070 gaming

Hi,
i have this graphic card (Gtx 1070) is a possible to OC this card? Msi has 3 mods : Silent mode/Gaming mode and OC mode, but when i want more FPS is possible to OC more? Can you please give me some tips?

I found this OC guide:
1.download MSI Afterburner,download Kombustor checks the OC stability
2.Open Afterburner and go to fan settings, Enable a user defined profile with your maximum accetable fan (noise)level
3.Increase the power and temperature limits,apply changes
4.Click ´´K´´ to open Kombustor, run the stress test
5. Apply a 50Mhz increase to core closk then let run Kombustor for at least 2minutes
6.Repeat step 5 until Kombustor stops working indicating an unstable overclock
7.Apply the last stable core clock frequency
8.Repeat the process for the memory clock to find the highest stable frequency
9.Save the overclock profile and return to fine tune if required

Can i set this in afterburner app?
Core voltage +0
Power limit set max. (126)
Temp.limit set max. (92)
Core clock (+150Mhz)
Memory clock (+600Mgz)

Yes, as long as it is stable yes.
Overclocking you won't see a huge jump in FPS, but as long as you don't higher the voltage too much, it will be fine. If you could give more infos about the gpu precise model, i could tell you more. The guide is fine and that's what you should do to achieve a stable and good overclock. Note that you can run a stress test in different ways other than kombustor like unigine heaven benchmark...

Your overclock is good, if you want to go further, you can with no problems just following the guide, if you want to start pushing the voltage i reccomend you to watch some good videos since you don't want to push it too far.

I think when i will following this (without +Core Voltage), only improve Power and Temp.limit and change Core clock and Memory clock, it would be safe right?I will try some little improve than OC mode from MSI.
I need only some few FPS , I have 144Hz monitor and i want to get stable 144Fps. (now i have 130/140)

Core voltage +0

Yes, if you don't touch the core voltage it will be fine, at worst it can crash, if that happen there are 2 options:
  1. Lower the core clock
  2. Higher the core voltage
