this is what i did for the power limit (left/stock - right/modded):Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
the very very top (66000mw and 75000mw) is the pci-e slot; the next set of 3 (12000, 162000, 175000) are the two 8 pin power connections; the last 3 are the combined max power limits 150000, 275000 [changed 300000], 300000 [changed 350000]) so yeah, your "old" 109% is now the "new" 100%. MSI already had the power connections configured to provide that.

there is/was some stuff in the voltage table that caught my attention:Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
it's like they don't want you to hit CLK69 or higher in the boost table so i adjusted it. your card may boost differently now
. as a matter of fact i ought to mention once the bios starts getting modded, it will start behaving differently. until you see how/what changes/is affected - treat every reflash as a new card.
and sorry to get picky but just post a screen shot of GPU-Z render test running like so:
don't use afterburner or PX - just run GPU-Z. i'm finding it . . .or i say it's surprising the card is boosting so low. i would think a 76% ASIC card would hit ~1410+ ~1.8-1.9 volts. and 60c for water seems a little warm, you have high ambient? keeping below ~54c gets better stability esp for benching.
thanks for the reply and the work youve done bro!
BEFORE BIOS MOD :
+87Volt (1280mV on load max)
109 power limit
mem + 500
full load temp max 60c
AFTER BIOS MOD :
+87volt(1220mV on load max)
+116 power limit
mem + 500
full load temp max 75c
and it seems that im not going above 100% power usage either before or now...
i had all pictures in photoshop of how you asked with gpu z but photoshop crashed and gone
my temps basically increased like hell but performance wise nothing realy, maybe 5fps boost...
also how come AB reports 4000mhz memory and gpu-z reports 2000mhz memory? always double difference.
basically i gained +20 core clock and no memory clock gain , but still crashing with 3dMARK ...

i'm surprised the operating voltage changed; the part i modded was for boost table entries so i expected just the clock speed to possibly change. on a side note; those temps are a little high for water cooling. 60c to 75c is more like air cooling. are you using an AIO or loop? i have a uniblock on my loop w/cpu and 280mm rad can run 3Dmark all day long and not go far north of 50c depending on ambient temps and stressing full system/aida64. so maybe give that a peek since cards can start voltage
throttling as low as ~64c to ~72c. (this has nothing to do with temp throttling which throttles the speed but not voltage. but the voltage goes down with the clock speed
before i go too far off, i'd suggest you get maxwell bios tweaker if you don't have it already and take a look at what i had used as my bios modding bible (in german so may need to translate):https://www.computerbase.de/forum/showthread.php?t=1445972
i suggest you look around at it and glean some and familiarize with the tables for boost, voltage along with power.
but getting back . . . i should have asked for a before/after flashing GPU-Z sensors. really everything should have stayed the same but possibly increasing the boost clock by lowering the min voltage needed to go farther up the boost table. that link to computerbase will show how the voltage table CLK entries are tied to the boost table CLK entries.
that image showing 1532 @ 1.243v is not having used AB to change anything?
right now knowing default, untouched speeds/voltage helps to know what to change to OC better.
