I'm afraid to take the cooler off mine, just too look at the PCB. If I was richer than I'd try mod's like this, and BIOS mods too.

What is the stock power limit on your card?! I don't see how you could maintain 2160+ MHz with the stock power limit and a reasonably heavy load, unless it is a very high power card like the Galax. For example, I hit around 400W at just 2100 MHz in 8K Superposition.

That is a nice card though, don't break it.

I will be sticking with the stock, upgraded (from evga) BIOS for these cards as none of the others lets me get even close to the memory speeds I get with OEM. I also will be applying the shunt mod to raise my available power limit. Lastly, waterblocks will be installed (already have them, just no time with 4, soon to be 5, kids).



I used clear nail polish my wife had lying about as I couldn't find my can of liquid electrical tape. This is a good idea though.
Wait what you mean stock upgrade? The 363 bios? or is there another? EVGA needs to step it up and give us more POWA! like Galax!

Renegade5399 I have gone back to the stock EVGA BIOS with the shunt mod. The XOC BIOS is nice and all, but it cripples NVLink SLi and I can't get the RAM nearly as high as I can on stock BIOS.

With the shunt mod and stock BIOS with the waterblocks installed, I have finally began testing. I am not sorry I did the shunt mod. 2070-2100 in games and benches with .975V. Superposition 4K runs 2100 all the way to the last 10 seconds at 2100, then it drops to 2070 as the temp creeps over 52°C. These Barrow blocks are decent. I have been fighting with the mount on this card to get it just right. The other card mounted perfectly to its block, but this one has been a hassle. I know I can get the temps a bit lower, just have to take it apart again.

Now a word of warning now that I have actually tried:

A 1000W power supply may not be enough to run 2 of these cards with the shunt mod. Just to test I enabled SLi and ran Furmark. It ran literally 1 second and the PC shut off. PSU tripped for over current/power. Installed a Dell 1200W server supply with breakout board I had left over from mining and put the cards on that. No issues after that, Furmark ran fine, LOL. So under heavy load (gaming, AI/DL, password cracking) these cards have the potential to pull over 500W each.

In games these cards are just the cats' ass.

LCRava Thank you Renegade and Asmodian for the input.

Since the card has a BIOS switch I thing I’ll flash the XOC Bios on the “Performance” BIOS and test stable 24 OC before and after the Shunt Mod with both BIOSes.

Last question, why did you pick that BIOS over the HOF and where can I get the version you guys are referring to?

It will be a while, but if you guys are interested I’ll post the Shunt Mod and the results here.

Thx again for helping out.

FE card
Not without knowing what card you are actually asking about.
You can look at the PCB closely and try trace it with your eyes, it's best to verify with any continuity meter anyway as to which resistor leads to which connector.

That one is for the 75W PCIe slot limit like Kalm said. You risk damaging your motherboard. I would remove that ASAP and put it in the proper location.

I recommend using the stock vBIOS with this mod, you do not need to allow more power after it and that way you get all the timing information Asus designed the card for (not that this is likely to be important based on user reports).

If it is an FE card then you can look at my photos in the OP, I have highlighted the two resistors to add with red squares. You are correct, do not add one to the lower shunt on the front.
