You missed the main concern I have which is still, why is it just set to 150% ? By default my card @ 100% power is 170W and @122% max default firmware is 200W... so by uncapping the power target to 150% is it allowing it to freely draw as much power as it needs?
The firmware from MKVtech on first page of this thread has the firmware set to power max @ 116 for 200W and I know the MKV guys have been doing this for a really really long time... Why didn't they just uncap the power target for all cards to 150%? Is the KGB more or less designed for people with their cards under water? Help me understand...

First question; yes, the pupose of setting a higher limit is to allow the graphics card to draw as much power as it needs, i really don't get your question. If you need 150% power to reach X overclock, you need 150% power, and not 122% power. If 122% power is enough, the card will only draw 122% power.

Second question; honestly, i have no idea why MKVtech chose 116%, you should probably go there and ask them. If they feel 116% is enough, then they have no reason to set it any higher i guess? In my opinion, unlocking the bios means removing all possible limits, inluding allowing the card to draw as much power as it needs. If you don't wan't the max possible overclock (without hardware modification), you ended up in the wrong place... the entire purpose here, is to give you the control of your GPU, and not nVidia smile.gif

The offset is not an accurate measure to judge your overclock upon, it should ONLY be judged by the max clock speed you achieve (monitored in GPU-Z, PrecisionX, Afterburner or similar).

Ahh! Your right! I just checked and a +110 to the GPU offset lets me achieve a 1306 mhz clock and it doesn't touch 45c at max load (I did the H60 mod)! I'll do more tweaking and see how far I can push this! Thanks!

H60 mod? pictures please? biggrin.gif i am very much in love with this mod myself, and i would really love to do it! (although, my temps are perfectly fine :O just want to...), so i would love to see how yours look tongue.gif

This. And you can set your power target to 10000000%, it does not matter as it will never use that much. If you honestly have a problem with the 150%(which will have NO effect on temperatures at all as your card will still be taking ONLY the power it needs) you can simply lower it to 116% or whatever you want.

I think the vBIOS here is the older one I created previously. I thought it was self-explanatory but just to confirm... that vBIOS at 100% is running at 173W and therefore to get to ~200W the percentage slider "only" went up by 116%. That now get's you to 200W.

Compare this to the KGB method which does not touch the 100% slider at all. It leaves your 100% down at ~143W and then increases that by 1.5 (by default) getting you to ~214W (NOTE: reference cards only). It also doesn't touch the card limit which is set to 200W - separate area, so would it ever go beyond 200W I have no idea. But as none of us have KGB code we can't see what it changes but I think the above is a fair assumption and it works as explained by the creator.

You can easily disassemble it, it does exactly what you described; changes the value of the maximum power limit to a higher value

I have an evga gtx 680 4gb +, thats what is says on the box. This one specifically i can't seem to find a bios for it. Would one of the ones listed on the first page work?

Im pretty confused on all the EVGA cards, but you could just make your own? Its very damn easy (press the spoiler "make your own bios"), it takes 30 secs max! Otherwise you could just upload your bios, and someone else (I) will do it tongue.gif
