Can it be flashed with the latest standard version of NVFlash? What XOC stand for?
Hi, with kingpin xoc bios you should be able to keep all video outputs, voltage itself with that bios isn't a problem, but it will increase your temps and for Turing cards temperature is the key, so keep an eye on that
If you want to try it out, you can find it here https://xdevs.com/guide/2080ti_kpe/
The exact bios version is the 90.02.17.40.88

My settings in Precision X1 are +70 / +1100, with +124 power target and +1000 mv. That is the highest I can get stable in these bench tests:
- Superposition 1080 Extreme (score 9771)
- Timespy free (13565)
- Firestrike free (25432)
Bench scores seem average to me, considering GPU temp is <50 at max load and CPU is 70s max.
I don't want to do a shunt mod but is there anything else I could consider? For instance, is it possible/wise to flash another bios to the FTW3? I see there's a Galax 380w (vs 373w FTW3) bios and also a KiNGPiN 520w bios but I don't know enough about this to know whether that's going to get me any gains and what the risk is?
Hi man, since you're on water, I'd suggest you to try kingpin xoc bios, you may squeeze some more performance out of your card.
As long your cooling is adequate you won't run in troubles, you can find the bios on the link above

I was using the galax 380watt bios but am on the xoc bios atm and WOW... it pulled 662 watts peak on a time spy ex run...... it runs about 450-500 watts in games... up to 530 watts in demanding games such at metro exodus or shadow of the tomb raider. I havent even tried to push the overclock with the 1.125 volts it running.... it might do 2150-2200 idk... could only get about 2055-2070 with galax or stock bios.
Hi, as said above, as long your cooling system is good enough you should be fine, reference boards can hold up above 600W of power.
Also time spy extreme is a pretty intense benchmark so it's expected that card pulled a lot of power. Averaging ~500W it's not a problem
