Ah bummer. Had to go back to 398.36 driver BTW. Seems the Vram can't be detected on the 4XX and prevents 3dMark from running.
Just updated my drivers to 419.67, still no HDMI-In. Oddly I could not get latest 430.64 to install.

I'm adding the thermal switch that opens at 85*C and closes at 65*C, that way I don't have to think about it.
Get used to the default lights?
Oh cool NC 85* backup switch on the PWM would be great. Stupid HWInfo locks up every so often like once a month. Would be great to have a safety...

Could always have one of those external power packs that put out 5v and just have another plug when charging at a desk.
I got one of their copper GPU heatsinks and the fitment was crap for the price. I managed to muscle it in with adjusting a lot of the clamp setup...
Like post #3
sounds like you already know the answer.
Hope this isn't offensive but old school jpg
330W with 240W PSU ID chip.
Or easier is the 90* elbow on 240W with center pin pulled out of the elbow.
