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.

edit: Pic of GPU-Z whilst running Unigine benchmark.
Power readings are messed with EVGA bios on strix (and others).
Don’t rely to the values you read currently with softwares as GPUz or others.

Nice :)
Did you peak 1600w from the wall :)
Thanks brother. Surprisingly no beep from the UPS and that’s capped at 1500w, psu at 1600w. Was too stoned to remember to save gpuz page. but hopefully I push that score a bit more and will screenshot next time.

thanks for the response mate. So how do we track/know our power with these bios flashes? Or do we just ignore?
Powermeter and voltmeter I assume....

Ah I see… don’t have a voltmeter/power meter to hand, will have to grab one.

Can anyone with a ROG Strix post their favoured BIOS paired with Afterburner settings? New to this and would really appreciate a solid starting point :)

I use this on strix with watercooling, so I don't know :p
Gpu-z powerusage shows only 2x 8 pin, but it drawing the right amount of power anyway. Looking at "kill a watt" meter

With aircooling, 420-450w is enough if you don't want to have a jet plane in youre case 😆
since it shows only 2x8 pin does this work on the 3090 FE?

Strix on air with stock cooler repasted with conductonaut and memory chips repaded with Thermalright ODYSSSEY

Okay, I kinda feel that this result is below average TBH but its all about silicon lottery, Id make a guess that even 1850 vs 2100 on the core would result in less than 5fps of a difference
I didn't test 1850 to 2100 core, but I tested around 2100core. Most games come out like this:

every +60mhz on the core is about 3fps gain

every +500mem is 1fps more

The lower the core OC, less memory bandwith is required so you can't always combine them.

2115 +1000mem vs 2130 +1500mem is 1fps diff

after, 2175 +1500mem shows 0fps - 1fps gain.

after that, well you won't be pushing it past that, power limits and silicon quality

Used Strix $2500 or sealed kingpin hc $2900? Worth $400?
Around here any Strix 3090 (new or used) is $3K+, new often $3400. If you have a loop definitely roll with the KP HC.

damn, you have to be crazy to pay 3400$ for a 3090, my Zotac 3090 1500$ is a bargain compared to today's prices lol
Sold 2x 2 years old 2080ti, and got 3090 strix oc white for "free" + money for lots of beer and Whisky :cool:🤙

I got my used Strix for 2300$ on EBay.
When I see current prices, I am happy.

...I kept my 2x Aorus 2080 Tis (used in a work machine), and added the 3090 Strix OC (equivalent US$ 1800 range before tax) and the Gigabyte 6900 XT (equivalent US$1600 range before tax). Those were for additional and overdue productivity+entertainment machine upgrades via 'opportunistic purchasing' when they became briefly available, several months apart...fyi, no tariffs here :)

Anyone have a chance to bench on Win11? Wondering how performance will compare. Am running it on side pc at the second, am tempted.

I remember them mentioning the OS would be able to address hardware more efficiently (similar to rebar).

Thats about 12fps gained from 1860 to 2100 core, that is a huge number if only my games scale that well. On my end 1860 to 2040mhz is less than 5fps on most of my games.
