Use Afterburner to reduce clocks and voltage directly.
Id say a good negative 300mhz core offset with a big chunk of voltage reduction would be better than lowering the power limit. If it was a VRM temperature issue, it will "solve" the issue right then and there.
This does not rule out a component failure though, simply a temperature issue.
Max I can lower for core clock is -90 and memory clock -201. Core voltage the slider is at the min, seems I can only add voltage.
What component failure as in PSU or Mobo? I've replaced the PSU thinking it was at fault but turns out didn't fix it.
