Gamer and overclocker !
Power readings are messed with EVGA bios on strix (and others).Hey folks,
I've got my ROG Strix 3090 in an EK water block and have flashed the BIOS, trying a few different EVGA ones, such as the one quoted for KINGPIN.
However none of the BIOSs seem to pay attention to the power limit, the wattage sits around 330(!), instead of 480, and looking in GPU-Z it seems my 8-Pin Power #3 is never used.
Any ideas? Running on the Strix BIOS it hits the 480W fine.

Don’t rely to the values you read currently with softwares as GPUz or others.
