ReZpawNDo they void your warrant if you flash a different bios?
gaubryDoes your power slider actually work? Mine doesn't. Leave your power slider at stock and open GPU-Z and run a demanding load. Note the max board power draw. Then max out the slider and re run the same test and again not the load. Make sure you reset before runs. For me the slider is useless and does not increase the power limit beyond 320w with 330w excursions or fluctuations.
sirienPower slider on XC3 is broken right now, check out this guys video though, about half way through he has an undervolt/clockspeed chart, his XC3 is shunt modded and it goes well above 500 watts at 1 volt
criskoeI don’t know guys. Just saw a tweet today from Jacob saying the power limit on the 3090 XC3 is only 366W. And that’s the 3090!!!!!! Un less this is a typo but I dunno. I wouldn’t hold your breath hoping the XC3 get some magic boost with out modding yourself. Looks like this pcb was just designed like a entry card.
aostangThis is likely the limitation due to 1) PCI+2 connectors and 2) thermals with the lesser fan and shroud design. I don't see them upping it. This would have been a great candidate for SLI configuration especially 3-slot (my current configuration with dual 1080 Ti SC2 with only 1 slot between them (Hero X). Unfortunately, NVidia is abandoning SLI so this card's purpose is probably best relegated to SFF and eGPU cases.
hitmanbloodCooler is fine with 130 core overclock with around 70% fan speed mine stays around 65c. Need good air flow.

Johnny5srv If there is headroom, I would like to see an actual power limit increase as well. XC3 3080 owner. The card already draws 380w and as far as I know thats the limit for 2 8pin pcie connectors at 150w each + 75w for the pcie slot on the motherboard.
