Try the MSI 2080 ti gaming x trio 406w bios from the first post in this thread. Has a higher wattage and a +135% power limit. Also its made for the three power cord connection card. Link https://onedrive.live.com/?authkey=%...%21114&o=OneUp

So when I open HWinfo64 (sensors only or the whole thing) my RGB lights on my Gaming X Trio shut off and I have to start mystic light in admin to fix it but that only works if HWinfo64 is closed. My motherboard and RAM RGBs are unaffected but they were set by ASUS Aura. Anyone know why this occurs?

It doesn't really work on my card. If I oc the core to about 2150, I cannot even oc the memory to 7500. If I oc the memory to 8000, I cannot oc the core to 2100. 370W bios works perfectly so far.

You can check if the MSI bios actually does anything to your card simply by:

Install the MSI bios (or what ever you want to test). Max out powertarget, voltage and whatnots, push a moderate OC you know to be stable. Run kombustor or something heavy. Check from HWiNFO or any other tool that shows your GPU powerdraw. If it is around the number your bios should let you; fine. If not, your bios is not working and defaulting to default power limit.

Happens to me with MSI Trio bios, it 'works' but cannot get the card to draw more then default numbers of power. I have palit gaming pro OC or something, the reference board with an A-chip. Best bios i've found working properly is the Galax 380w one, with it everything works as expected including getting my powerdraw to 380w.

I used GPU-z to check the TDP. Looks like I have the exact same situation as you.

That score is substantially lower than your clocks would suggest, so you're either getting some kind of power/thermal/voltage throttling or your clocks are so borderline stable that it's actually decreasing performance. With those clocks (if you actually could sustain them), you should be near my score, but you're 400 points off.

Also, without hardware modifications or potentially an XOC bios and helper app if that is ever released, you cannot do above 1.093V, as that's Nvidia's hard limit for our cards. It doesn't matter what your curve is set to (or if you "lock" it to 1.1V in MSI AB), it simply cannot deliver over 1.093. And IMO, with a 380W limit, all you're doing at 1.093 is hitting that PL even sooner. Try backing down your clocks and lowering your voltages. I found 2130/8080 @ 1.05 was a sweetspot and good for 10.5k on 1080p Extreme (and 17k TimeSpy GPU Score -> #60 Total Score single-GPU, #56 GPU Score single-GPU) on my Asus Strix OC with Galax 380W Bios (no shunt) and a 280mm AIO.

FWIW, this also makes me wonder about 90% of people's scores in here with supposed overclocks of 2100 MHz or more. They're all so low, meaning that they're either throttling and they don't know it or they are losing points due to low stability.
Here's my Superposition 1080p extreme. 2115mhz with the occasional PL throttle dips to 2100. +950 mem. GALAX 380w BIOS. I kept getting incredibly erratic scores in the mid 9000s. Seems like having the Aquasuite app for my fancy new Aquaero 6 LT open on my second monitor was somehow crippling my performance. Strange.

I also hadn't paid attention to the fact that the 3DMark HoF has "graphics score" specific top 100 for TS and TS Extreme prior to your post. That sounded interesting, since I'm one of the sad few still living in the X99 stone ages, so I wasted some time playing 3DMark tonight.

https://www.3dmark.com/pr/46523 - Port Royal 9480
https://www.3dmark.com/spy/6182789 - 16811 Graphics score in Time Spy
https://www.3dmark.com/spy/6182721 - 7959 Graphics score in Time Spy Extreme

Port Royal is a cake walk to run, both in terms of max stable frequency and power throttling. 2145-2160mhz the entire time 1.037v-1.062v. I can't even come close to that in anything else. Although Time Spy seems to be a bit more forgiving than Fire Strike when it comes to core clock.

Does anyone know if there's ever a temperature point where GPU Boost stops adjusting the damn 'base curve'? Even in the low 40s it's all over the place. Sometimes I'd get 2160mhz @ 1.062v, other times it would run 2160mhz @ 1.05v (which is about as stable as a drunk walking a tightrope). Incredibly annoying.

I am planning to buy an air cooled card and remove the shroud/fans to replace them with either two NF-A12x25s or two Silent Wings 3 140mm. Whichever ones fit, with the latter being preferable.

My potential candidates are Lightning Z and FTW3 Ultra. Maybe Gaming X Trio if it has the same sized heatsink as Lightning Z (with this one I would have to flash the bios, which I would like to avoid because of the risk of voiding the warranty). I would consider a HOF if they were available (don't know whether that shroud/display can be removed easily).

The goal here is to achieve the best noise/performance cooling ratio while having one of the potentially highest OCing air cooled cards. The price is not a consideration here. As I have understood while reading this awesome thread MSI has a larger heatsink than FTW3. Is that accurate? Also its height might allow fitting two 140mm fans instead of two 120mm. Can anyone verify? These factors would make it a number one choice for me. That is unless there is no way to do the mod without voiding the warranty on a MSI card. That is important for me. Can it be done? Otherwise, an FTW3 is the only choice.
Can someone contribute please?

anyone having a link to buy those 8ohm shunts to powermod the 2080Ti?

and is it better to get a 3ohm one and stack them or remove the 5ohm one and put a 8ohm on it? or not differnce?

i bought those 7mo resistors from ebay and soldered them on top of the original ones and my card works with them

But please don´t blame me if it does not work for you!
