Did you buy 3Dmark? If so you can see your Key. You can install 3DMark without steam. Use the standalone and just use the key that Steam shows for it. You won't have to start Steam to use it after that.
Here is Firestrike and Catzilla. The card was at 1506/8000. I think 260w TDP/ 295w +13%. I didn't touch the Power during the runs. So 260w Max. I believe I saw it go to 86-86% in GPU-Z. The demo appears to use more TDP for a longer period of time(extended Combined test really).
