Ok, thank you for the n00b help..

So a short 1 minute run in moderation is perfectly fine unless you have poor tracks on the PCB, insufficient wire size to the connector and/or poor termination or worse a cheap charlie copy connector or one with corroded / dirty sockets.
As @luziiu points out the example I gave is using offsets for the VBIOS posted here
. Don't expect the same offsets in other VBIOS to be exactly the same, you need to parse it to find them but usually close by. Also don't expect all to be the same values.
Ah ha! Very helpful, thank you. I still would not personally pull more than 200W over an 8-pin but it looks like electrically it is possible to pull more than 250W (so eating words)
, PCB tracks rated 4 less? I am going to look and see if I can find the offsets in that BIOS posted.
OK total FAIL... Ima one-legged man in an a$$ kicking contest apparently. I can find the offset in the SC1070 BIOS but I don't see the milliwatt values. Once I find the offset how do I view the values? I'm still missing something.. I know it.. go ahead.. make it painful Edited by Laithan - 6/29/16 at 5:25pm
