For our tests, we used a new test rig which is comprised of an EVGA Z370 Micro Motherboard, along with an Intel Core i7-8700K at default clock speed of 4.3GHz, as well as 16GB of Corsair Vengeance RGB DDR4-3000 ram in dual channel mode.
All tests were conducted at default clock speeds at a resolution of 1920×1080. High or Ultra settings enabled.

You can use the included FireStorm software to overclock and tweak your GTX 2070. Spectra lighting can also be adjusted here too.
PassMark – Performance Test 9.0 (3D Test)
Test the speed of your 3D video card by selecting from options such as fogging, lighting, alpha blending, wire frame, texturing, resolution, color depth, object rotation and object displacement. Separate tests for DirectX 9,10,11 & 12. With support for 4K resolution.
At the boosted clock speed of 1650 MHz (default is 1410 MHz), the idle temperature was around 33 degrees Celsius, which isn’t bad at all.
At full load, the card reached a high of 65 degrees Celsius, that’s almost double that during idling. Still, the card handled it extremely well. The dual fans and large heatsink (with heatpipes), along with Zotac’s IceStorm 2.0 cooling really helps here.
