Any trouble PM me!

Your PSU hit the maximum amperage it could give your system and tripped OCP (over current protection)
My silverstone 1200W is just a notch up your PSU and i can get away with 1,4V; i got over 1,5V once for a suicide run but the power draw was over 1300W (1390W off the wall) and shut down!
Power draw depends on the load and type of work your card has to do, you can get high PT with low voltage and high PT with high voltage ll depends on the software itself!
Valley is more memory intensive, so, you have higher chances of getting away with your clocks at that voltage but 3Dmark11 is harsher on the chip making it "sweat" so it needs more voltage to sustain those clocks and it will require more power from the PSU!
Here are some quotes from my posts about PT and power consumption:
"The PT is the increase of TDP (thermal design power) which is determined by the chips maker (GK110 =250W) but this is not a fixed value, refers to the maximum amount of power the cooling system, in this case a chip, is required to dissipate. The TDP is typically not the most power the chip could ever draw, but the maximum power that it would draw when running "real applications". This ensures the chip will be able to handle essentially all applications without exceeding its thermal envelope, or requiring a cooling system for the maximum theoretical power.
"TDP is meant to be the wattage of the processor at load. I say "wattage" because it is unclear if this is meant to correspond most immediately to how much power is consumed in watts, or how much heat is produced in watts, but as near as I can tell the TDP is pretty much meant to indicate both" GL
(where C is capacitance, f is frequency and V is voltage)
Now, you dont have to make complicated calculus or anything like that because you have this chip here:
It monitors real-time voltage and power draw and its where AB gets its reading from the VRM´s!
Stock bios come with 250W TDP (AKA PT) so when its at 100% you will have 250W of power draw, if you increase it to the max stock 106% youll get: 250x106%=265W
The same is with modded 300/400/500W bios what you see in AB or precisionX is the percentage above what you set!
Ex: with a 500W bios (Slider set to maximum of course) you see 60% usage, this equals to: 500x60%=300W
YOU CAN DIRECTLY CONTROL TDP WITH THE SLIDER!
Now, why has AB a 300% slider while PrecisionX uses 200% for the same bios with the same PT?
Well, AB and precision have different interfaces so the readings are different for the same thing, just keep in mind the base TDP value and make your calculations from there
It doesnt matter what the % slider is in any program, just increase it if you having stutters or frame drops and when making calculations always make them from the base TDP:
aW x b% = cW (a= bios base TDP, b= OSD TDP, c= aproximate power draw)"
"Bear in mind that my system is in my SIG and the only difference was the CPU@4.8Ghz@1,30v! Using triple monitor 3240 x 1920@120hz SLI TITANS W/ Skyn3t Rev2 bios
and memory at stock 6000mhz!
1306mhz / 1,37v / power draw 124% / load 99% 372W*
1333mhz / 1.37v / power draw 134% / load 99% 402W*
1359mhz / 1.37v / power draw 139% / load 99% 417W*
1385mhz / 1.37v / power draw 145% / load 99% 435W*
1400mhz / 1.39v / power draw 155% / load 99% 465W*
*Power draw for 1 card only
As you can see voltage alone will not increase power draw until you increase clocks and dynamically load your card, power was being drawn from the wall ranging from 850W - 1250W!"
This was tested with games, if you try to measure with something more heavy (mining for instance or CUDA) youll find that the power draw will go through the roof with lower voltage!
