In most games or benchmarks you're absolutely right.
But Valley benchmark isn't very hungry. ;-)
I chose it especially; to have some
sort of possible way to test max O/C with minimal power throttling.
Not sure 2100 @ 1.093v will hold up in a more intense game/benchmark that draws 350w + like you say; however by that time I'll be under water (or chilled water if I reconnect my 'Sub-zero modified' Water Chiller back into my loop).
I figured if I can do Valley on air at 2100Mhz / 1093mv with a power draw of about 270w - 300w, I should at least
manage the same (or better)
at 350w in a more modern benchmark after I go water..... (hope that makes sense).
In answer to ur Q: I was measuring using hwinfo64 on a non-shut modified card. (well not shut moded yet

Congrats on getting a good one!
Enjoying reading your progress, very comprehensive and educational as well.
It will be interesting to see what you can accomplish with more exotic cooling, if that's your chosen route!
Funny you say that, because I am
actually glad lol.
And thanks; will keep posting / keep u posted ;-)
I've hardly even thought about gaming much tbh yet; instead I feel more like my card is a new toy to tinker with, lol. (and there's something about reference design that I find interesting; as it's a 1st for me).
