980ti w/350-400 watt limit in vbios - i have confirmed, long time ago in the 980ti owners club, that gpu-z reading is accurate comparing to a kill-o-watt and accounting for psu efficiency.

396 watts in gpu-z

if looking to really stress the PSU , kombuster looks to be better. run it w/prime, settings depending on the cpu gen and be prepared for the fireworks.

Remember the golden rule of statistics: A personal sample size of one is a sufficient basis upon which to draw universal conclusions.
Upload the computer to Dropbox and provide a link to it so others may download it to examine and give advice for repairs.
