Power Consumption

With the GTX 1070 Ti Founders Edition overclocked, and its power limit increased by 20% resulting in power consumption of 290W for the entire system. This is just 20W more, from the 270W total system power draw at stock clocks.

This isn't too bad considering the Radeon RX Vega 56 in reference form (no custom RX Vega 56 exist right now) uses 210W total, the RX Vega 64 with 295-300W and the RX Vega 64 Liquid Cooled using 350W or more. When overclocked and the power limits are unleashed on Vega, the power consumption can easily rise to 450W on the RX Vega LCE. GTX 1070 Ti is much tamer on the power consumption.

Temps

NVIDIA's GeForce GTX 1070 Ti Founders Edition has a good cooler and all, but it doesn't begin to compare with the likes of MSI and ZOTAC's custom beasts. Still, the GTX 1070 Ti FE was staying somewhere around the 72-73C mark under load, and up to 75C when overclocked.

This is with the fans on auto, which span up to 75% (3000RPM) when overclocked. It wasn't too loud, but you'll want to avoid getting the GTX 1070 Ti FE if you want a quiet system. If you love the look, you'll have no problems at all getting some great performance out of the GTX 1070 Ti FE.
