I'm not an expert on the voltages....lol
I think the TDP for this bios is 285w. All I can tell you is that I haven't had any issue with power, except for the brief throttling in Catzilla.
I thought the pci-e was a max of 75w. I could be wrong though. The rest is gained through the pci-e cables for your card.
