I use afterburner to keep peace in the house.  Underpowered rigs have been running for over a year - one AMD and one Nvidia with 480's and 1060's. 

Play around with the power and fans and hopefully you will see that if you angle with 80% of maximum, then silence and stability.

OK, this is the gpu that I received. https://www.techpowerup.com/gpudb/b3999/evga-gtx-1070
I'm trying to tinker with MSI Afterburner.
Unfortunately, My card is now running on 80 C with fan at 60%. The whine is starting to bother me..
I am getting only 410 sol/s with Equihash using Excavator 1.3.5a. Here are my other settings.

Power:80
Core:100
Memory:175

I have tried to set the memory high, but notice that the GPU crashes if I push it too far.
Perhaps I am not built for mining. The whine from the fan is like scratching on a blackboard to me...Will I get used to it?

First off, nice rig you got there. A good balance for both gaming and mining.

If the whine is bothering you, i suggest you go and get a decent PSU. Since its not indicated in your specs, its probably a generic noisy one. Go get a 80+ Platinum (more expensive) or Gold rated PSU. It will be more energy efficient and will help you increase profitability in the long run. Also, when mining zcash, you will not need memory. You can even set it to 0 and not see a decrease in your sol/s.

Nice rig you got. I would suggest get a decent 80+ platinum rated PSU. It will reduce electricity cost and will be more efficient.

For zcash mining you should try this settings in Afterburner and use EWBF miner.

Code:
Power Limit: 80%
Core Clock: +100
Memory Clock: +600
Fan: 60%

Please keep in mind that you have to monitor and if your pc is not stable then try to decrease Memory clock by 50 and keep doing it until it is stable.

Thanks for the advise. I'll look into getting a better power supply. I already tried to set my memory to +600 and was having issues. currently, I am at +350 and will keep pushing it little by little to see how far that I can take it.

I am pretty sure it's a PSU issue. When you want to buy a new PSU keep in mind that you will use it's 80% capacity. For example, an 80+ Gold rated 1000W PSU will give you 80% efficiency. In other words you will be able to utilise 800W from it.

Actually the typical efficiency is about 90-93% at max loading, but for me I also push it just at 80% power limit for stability and safety in long term operation.
