Did some testings today and this is for all those inquisitive minds out there wandering on the power draw of our beast cards running GK110!
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
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!
I have been researching on the latest "curiosity"; why do power supplies shut down with enough power to spare while the cards apparently are not drawing that much power and while i may have an idea, unfortunately have no means to research it more and try to prove it!
This equation gives us the notion that if the voltage is doubled and the power remains the same, the current will be halved.! That way we are crashing the cards by not supplying enough amperage to sustain those OC states, at stock 42A are required for each card!
Bear in mind this is just an exercise for the mind to entice some minds out there, as i may be wrong in my assumptions! As all in life "necessity is the mother of invention"! to get there we have to: (Paraphrasing Samuel Beckett and Plato above) "Try again. Fail again". Fail better!
