Thanks!
No in both cases, this is a hardware mod so AB or similar are not required for it to work.

Once it is done the card will always think it is using less power than it really is, we are actually modifying what it uses to determin how much power it is drawing so with everything in the drivers/software/BIOS at stock the real power limit will actually be 2x stock (when stacking another 5 milliohm resistor, using a single 3 milliohm resistor would raise the power limit by 1.667x).

ThrashZone Hi,
Default clocks/ boost only throttling would be caused by heat not power demand...
Monitor memory and core temps possibly the water block isn't mounted properly
I myself used the wrong screws/ longer ones instead of the shorter ones and contact was crap and so were temps.

if u dont overclock ur card, u have more then enough headroom not to hit power limit ever. in games that is. if u undervolt ur card as well ( i assume ur gpu clocks till 2000mhz ), its going to be even better.

dont try to fix if it aint broken imo. i have 1080ti and max what i saw power draw was like 90-100% max with heavy overclock (in games), and i have headroom till 120%...

But yes you'd still need to raise/ unlock voltage control and raise it that is what oc'ing is

It's just the cards firmware won't be able to tell and trip safety features.
Water cooling is recommended.

Shunts do not have an orientation that is important. Put it on so the text is rightsight up.

3 mOhm directly is ideal, let us know how it goes.

evassion Last question.. How can I know the shunts orientation in the pcb?

I did not take a photo before "liquid metaling" them.

My plan it is to do like this and use 3Momh directly (the pcie shunt is untouched):

Ya that one is good, or the ERJ-M1***3M0U model instead since it has the same 100 PPM/C spec. Though I dont think it matters since these dont get hot.

edit: E R J - M 1 W T F 3 M 0 U

profanity filter doesnt like "w t f" in model name.




If you use a 4mOhm resistor you will be 25% higher power limit already, plus adding another 20% in driver setting. A 3mOhm resistor will be 66% higher power limit, plus 20% again in driver. Basically removing the limit entirely.
