I posted earlier on what to do. You want to flash stock bios first.
Make sure your computer is running the same in both scenarios, so for me I maxed out all of my fans and pump in my system. Take screenshot of your system at idle with all fans at 100%
Run furmark just for 15 seconds (not even close enough to harm your PC) and it will measure your maximum power draw. Take screenshot
Then do the same with palit bios. Take screenshot at idle and then take screenshot with furmark run.
The most important is comparing the max power draw screenshot of both bios.
If we see 40-60 watt difference, then you're definitely pulling more than 300 Watts. If we see it around 10 watts of one another, then we're not seeing anything
Lets hope we see that extra 50!
This is me comparing the stock bios and shunt mod. Getting around 100 extra watts of power draw.Edited by SlimJ87D - 4/24/17 at 3:34pm
