GTX 1050 shunt mod? Anyone done it? Increase BIOS powerlimit?
So I got a HTPC set up with a Ryzen 2700 and a GTX 1050 that I got as placeholder until GTX 1650 low profile cards come out, is there some way to increase the power limit on this thing? My card is the MSI GTX 1050 2GB Low Profile. Its not fast but I just like pushing overclocks on everything lol
Its always bumping against the 75W limit and I know it doesn't have a pcie 6-pin connector so technically increasing it would be "unsafe" but so is overclocking of any type so has anyone done a shunt mod on the GTX 1050/1050Ti? I can't seem to find the shunts at all, and I tried flashing it with a Strix GTX 1050 that has a 6-pin but that just bricks it because it doesn't want to post as it checks if there's a 6-pin connected which this card obviously doesn't have any.
