    1) Is it advisable to have two oc profiles, one for 1080p, one for 1440p ?

    Since you can get a higher overclock at 1080p, two oc profiles would be good.

    2) High temp and hitting the power limit are what causes pascal gpu's to throttle, we can thank gpu boost 3.0 for this.

    The Strix 1070 is capable of running below 70c under full load which is what I recommend to do. You're able to run at 50c and below under full load and that is exceptionally good.

    Higher resolutions and high levels of antialiasing can and most likely will cause you to hit the power limit. If you're not happy about hitting the power limit, you can always stick with 1080p.

    I have a Titan Xp and it's basically the same, at 1440p it's fine, at 4k it hits the power limit. Unfortunately, there isn't much we can do about it.

    So in short:

    To keep the highest sustained core clock, keep temp as low as possible and try not to hit the power limit.

    Personally, I'd stick with 1440p as long as you're staying at or close to 60 FPS with your games.
