Once again, no one has measured the actual power output of the Asus bios, so no one knows if we are drawing extra watts.

Let me point someone out to you. The Asus strix power target is 275. We're hitting 110% on this bios. 275X1.1=300 watts.

It's possible we're just hitting 300 watts!

Since you made this topic I think you should really update the op.

A lot of people here are experiencing placebos.

It has been tested, the extra 30 watts is coming from the 8 pin power connector, was stated by another person that tested the Asus BIOS and my Corsair logs show a bit more power drawn with the Asus BIOS.

I think it's measured in amps by Corsair but it's there.

That's kind of conflicting with another user saying they measured it using HWINFO64 and saw the same draws with stock and Asus bios.

Here is the funky part, when i tried the Shunt Mod using Liquid Metal (3 times) , HWInfo was reporting 30-40W less power draw than stock. However the performance was the same. This was with stock clocks. The power draw however that was being reported by Corsair Link was higher, than it was without the mod. Which is weird, because this test was at stock clocks.

So i highly doubt with another brands BIOS on the FE cards, software reporting will be super wonky, Either test power draw at wall or using the PSU it self. (Corsair Link)

Since you have have corsair link, I'm not at home,if you have time can you measure max system draw o both bios running a benchmark? That should be the most accurate.

At work right now. Will do it later tonight.

People thought that the ASUS bios gave you an extra 30 watts of TDP, I'm here to prove this absolutely wrong.

Here's the verdict, the ASUS bios doesn't give you anything. Please take a look at the results below, you don't get that extra 30 watts you thought you did. Running furmark, you can see here that the ASUS bios drew 10 more watts, but I have to tell you that it was just near the end of the end of the test where power usage was %112.



Asus Power Draw 275 * 1.12 = 308 Watts

This is equal to the times on stock where I would hit 124% just for a brief few seconds playing Witcher 3. Here's the stock bios below hitting 122%. But I usually have it hit 124% a few times.



Stock Power Draw 250 * 1.24 = 310 Watts

So there you have it folks. The freaking ASUS bios gives you +30 extra watts is complete BS.

Please stop flashing it, it just gives you worse results. Those of you who think you're overcoming power limits and getting better results, sorry but you're not.




KedarWolf, do the right thing and edit the OP. Stop misleading people.

If i use stock my max power is 310w if using strix max power draw is 335w
But for me is proof andromeda, clock 1980 vs 2035 say strix bios working...
Because clock going dawn if pl touch 120
But with stock bios start lowering clok on 2000mhz :-(
Max clock its only 2012
In the end its not about how many wats drawing card but how good gpu holding clocks, strix is better, for me
Strix have beter min fps almost about 10% on your heaven test

I just gave you actual measurements of what's going on. Actual readings. I used science to prove to you that you're not drawing anything special on Asus bios.

Your card is not pulling anymore power than a normal FE. Your performance is not actually better than stock, if you know what you're doing when your oc and optimizing the stock will always be better than the Asus bios.

Even KedarWolf went back to stock.

But hey, whatever helps you sleep at night.
