CptT95Do you think using boost lock on X1 would help mitigate those spikes? This keeps the gpu at full power state and hold boost clock all time 😒🤔
Nike_7688CptT95Do you think using boost lock on X1 would help mitigate those spikes? This keeps the gpu at full power state and hold boost clock all time 😒🤔Probably not. There are two different kinds of spikes that seem to be prevalent. One is due to the weird voltage jump when a game jumps from a low power state to a high power state. That is what seems to be happening to people who's 3080's and 3090's crap out with the red light of death during Halo or League of Legends or something...what your describing might help those folks, but I couldn't say for certain. Then there are the high power usage spikes that happen when actually using the card in high power loads like games where the GPU is at 100% utilization. Those are just there...I don't know what scenes or gaming events cause them, but it seems like the whole 30-series has higher spikes than any cards before them, which is why people have had issues with 750W and even some cheaper 850W supplies even though the spec says 750W should be enough. I haven't seen a lot of documentation about what they look like or what you can expect from them, but I'd personally be hesitant to run any 3090 with less than a 1000W PSU (let alone a KP lol), especially while overclocking everything in the system. Now, you do not have a cheap 850W PSU, and I bet if everything was stock you wouldn't have a problem, but the KP is already not "stock" and if you threw some extra +'s in the speeds, it would definitely hit higher than stock. You do have an efficient CPU (especially compared to mine that peaks ~250W during an r23 run lol), so that should definitely help. Another question I would have for you is how old is your PSU? Something like transient spike handling capability could degrade over time. Usually the T2's are built like tanks so I would think it should take quite a while before it had trouble, but there are very limited data-points out there for exactly what the spikes look like, what power supplies can handle (exactly), and if/when you might be in trouble. The 30-series totally changed the game in my mind, as for years people were buying way bigger PSUs than they needed...now, not so much.
CptT95Bought in 2016 summer and never pushed past like 30 40% load lol till now atleast
CptT95What do you all think?Was I too aggressive on mem clocks for stock voltage and cooling? 😆

Slippy103Either, I didn't quote and the thread is pretty long. I would have stopped counting already. Dream rig for sure though.
CptT95Slippy103Either, I didn't quote and the thread is pretty long. I would have stopped counting already. Dream rig for sure though.I am not even finished yet, need to get higher binned memory to hit 4K cl14, for whenever AMD updates agesa to support 2K clocks, upgrade 5800x to 5950x, expand my cooling setup to have 3 rads and 2 pumps/reservoirs, various extra fittings needed for this expansion lolEdit-also did I mention I "only" have a 850w t2?with the KP pushing close to 550w with classified tool, I need more power if I want to tweak like I want
anavik2Holy moly, tires! That's like 3 drops of rain and you're hydroplaning!
anavik2Nice, enjoy the Bimmer! I had an E85 M Roadster for 7 years, was a blast the entire time. Watch out for dealers though, they will take your firstborn. Find a reputable independent mechanic, they are common for euro brands because the dealers charge such extortionate rates.
