Well, I am of the opinion that your PSU is one of the most important components of your system, ESPECIALLY when overclocking. I also feel that you don't want to exceed 80% of the PSU's capacity for efficiency and clean power. I don't particularly care for EVGA products in general however it does look like that PSU is of decent quality at first glance. I would say read reviews... 750W is low in my opinion. Although in most cases you'll never reach maximum CPU and GPU power utilization simultaneously I like to plan for that possibility and also to plan for future upgrades. I have seen overclocked CPUs draw a TON of power (and high amps) and I am not personally familiar with Ryzen CPUs however I'd guess that they can pull a lot of power also. Would you be just fine with a 750W... maybe! I am just a "go big or go home" kind of guy

No, the "DS" BIOS on all the extreme cards doesn't even have an entry for the 3rd PCI-e power. It is not possible to use with the DS BIOS.

Use GPU-z to monitor perfcaps... You'll never be PWR limited (showing you don't need it) unless you're using furmark (avoid it, BAD for your GPU/VRMs) at extreme levels. 100% of "real world scenarios" (including benchmarks) will not have any perfcaps with the MUMOD BIOS.

Hello there! No you don't need to use that, it is not necessary unless you are using DICE/LN2 etc..

(2) 8-Pin connectors with this BIOS will allow 475W total (200W each 8-pin + 75W PCI-e slot) which is more than enough. In MSI AB, just max out both the power % and voltage sliders to allow those values.

Any questions just ask. Enjoy

Laithan Still waiting to see how low Maxwell cards drop. I see that some are able to grab some 980Ti's for ~$200... I'd have no problem recommending that to someone that wants to play games. These new GPU prices are just out of control.

although I have been using a bios mod for over a year in my magnificent 980ti extrem with great results, I am having problems and I can not find the msi afterburner on page 1.

my slider of the core voltage does not rise of 87% I was wondering if they could pass me the correct version.
<blush> Thanks bud... It used to be more organized but it didn't make it through a conversion too well. I appreciate your kind words!

With regard to the values that you see (Power % and Voltage mV) they are actually are read from the values set in the BIOS. No matter which version of MSI AB that you use, those values won't change unless the BIOS is modified. They are essentially just the difference between default and maximum values. I can explain in more detail if helpful (if you are trying to modify them).

Furmark is a power virus and this is expected behavior. It is really good at 2 things only (and one of them is not stability testing)...
(1) To draw maximum power
(2) To generate maximum heat.

This is along the lines of running your engine at full throttle while in park. I wouldn't recommend that you use Furmark, it is not good for your GPU or VRMs. If you are looking for stability testing try running FFXIV free benchmark @ maximum settings in a loop for about 3-5 runs.

I also don't know if you had BOTH the voltage and power % sliders maxxed out but this is required to allow the full power and voltage configured in the BIOS. Anything less will be restricted by design.
There is any chance get your telegram/discord ? can you send me one to pm ,polease?
