I heard Coollabratory Ultra spreads easier so maybe that's why people have an easier time applying it. Because Pro turns into a tiny ball and has higher tension from what i see in videos.

People apply Pro to a surface, it turns into balls and rolls a little bit lol.
exactly! it balls up.

If my card sits vertical which liquid metal surround by nail varnish would be best to minimize it running?

Think theres a person on here who has his vertical and no issues. the current amount of liquid metal on mine at the moment i wouldnt take chance on vertical least not on Xp lol i have a huge glob. its neatly displaced and not touching solder but i feel a little at ease because it hangs upside down. but my tdp dropped super low 25-40 and if im not benching i can run a modest overclock 100 core 500 mem at power target 105% and it never throttles or reaches limit. im a day or two in but seems like a good mod. anyone here have done it long term?

Is there anyone here running their card above 350 watts? Would it be dangerous to do 375 watts?

There's an nvidia command you type but I'm not sure it'll work because I think it relies on your cards power percent reading.

For you, it might say 150 watts because you're at 50%.

Please test this while running a benchmark in window mode on the side. We'll get to see how the shunt mod works.

The FE VRMs are pretty overbuilt for a 300W reference card, but need to be cooled.

What's your cooling?

I have a x41 mounted on the die and the entire 1080 Ti reference shroud and midplate is still intact so all the vram and vrms are in contact with midplate. Blower skill blows and cool the vrm and chokes.

I have stuck copper heatsinks where the vram area on the midplate also. I have setup a 120mm fan in my case to blowing at these heatsinks.

I measured the plates temperature and the copper. The plates reached 40C and the copper was at 36C so they are conducting and releasing heat thankfully.

But most of the heat is extracted form my aio.

Would 375 watts be okay or is that getting too hot?

Shunt modded my MSI 1080Ti FE using the solder + tiny wire method. Modded the 2 PCI-e connectors, and left the PCI-e slot's shunt alone. Working great! Now I just need to upgrade the cooling...
