power on VRM or any other on the card?
-if it is unlimited will I have any issue with my EVGA 750W G3 Power supply?
-this card have reference pcb. Are these bios you recommend compatible with evga XC gaming?
Yeah, 380W bios is a nice one but slightly slower than matrix bios, so if you want to shunt mod your card to rise power limit, I'd suggest you to use matrix bios
Anyways with xoc bios, the card under heavy load may peak around 600W, but even reference pcb can hold up over 600W of power.
Obviously your vrm temps will rise a bit, but with a fan pointed at them they will be more than fine, so I'd say it's not a problem.
Your PSU can sustain the card itself even with xoc bios, but depending on your other hardware, if your full system goes under full load, you may max out your PSU.
Also yes, those bios are for sure compatible with reference boards, I've been using them for some months on my own reference card.
Hope this helps [IMG class=inlineimg]/forum/images/smilies/smile.gif[/IMG]
