I have a KPE and when I try to benchmark an OC , I see the voltage drop across the PCIe slot go down to 11.8 and sometime 11.7 just before it crashes.
I am on an MSI z390 Gaming plus, I don't see where there is anywhere else to hook another 12v pigtail to the board, Is this my downfall for any higher scores and limiting me? I know the slot is limited to 70ish watts but is the voltage drop ok ? wattage reported is in the high 60s , I am using the EVGA G6 1k PSU and all the other 12v are holding at 12.1v even when I try something extreme with the classified tool pulling crazy wattage. 
Thanks for any advise
