Having Trouble Overclocking GTX 1070 GPUS

Hi there folks.

I am running Ubuntu Linux with 6 GTX 1070s and am having some problems overclocking my GPUs. See below output:

owocki@owocki-desktop:~$         nvidia-smi -i ${i} -pl 170
Failed to set power management limit for GPU 0000:01:00.0: Insufficient Permissions
Terminating early due to previous errors.
owocki@owocki-desktop:~$
owocki@owocki-desktop:~$ sudo !!
sudo         nvidia-smi -i ${i} -pl 170
Power limit for GPU 0000:01:00.0 was set to 170.00 W from 170.00 W.
Warning: persistence mode is disabled on this device. This settings will go back to default as soon as driver unloads (e.g. last application like nvidia-smi or cuda application terminates). Run with [--help | -h] switch to get more information on how to enable persistence mode.
All done.

Can anyone tell me what I might do to get my GPUGraphicsClockOffset and GPUMemoryTransferRateOffset to update?

Thanks,
