I put together a new computer a few months back. After a month, the 1070 died and I had to get it RMA'd. My "new" (it's a crappy refurb, thanks Zotac) 1070 won't work in my primary x16 slot, so i've had to use my x4 slot to get any display (physical x16, but the manual says it only runs at x4). This is a problem I will tackle in the future, but I am quite busy right right now so I have to live with it. I just want to know, how badly is it bottlenecked? I'm fixing to get a 1440p 144hz monitor this week and I wanted to OC my 1070, but that probably won't do much if it's capped by the limits of the x4 slot. For reference, my full system configuration is here: https://ca.pcpartpicker.com/list/tV4LQV
Any advice appreciated.
