asic quality is not supported on this card and the number in your screenshot is incorrect. Update your version of GPUz.

The "%" - like 150% - is a value calculated from the base entry in bios... so if you mean that by increasing the TDP to say.. 350W would that overload the card? No. The bios has hardware triggers that will shut down the card in the event of over temp. Of course, overlocking any hardware adds stress to the parts... and if you do, you need to be able to manage the increased thermals. This is no different than mods that increase the TDP and PL on every generation preceding Pascal.I've been running SLI titans at 1.274V and a 475W power limit (+100% over stock) for what - 2 years? Still very strong cards.
lol - this IS Overclock.net, right?

Personally I'm waiting on Pascal Titans but if Pascal sucks I'd rather just wait it out.
Firestrike on BWE seems bugged, but Mk11 does not. Heaven and Vally are running properly IMO, and in all these, the 1080 is doing better than any previous generation... don't forget to compare ambient to ambient cooling results. Check 3DMK11 Preformance and extreme for 1 and 2 cards on the HOF. and also check OCN's own bench mark threads for Valley and Heaven 4.0.Edited by Jpmboy - 6/27/16 at 4:06pm
