    Hypothetically, let's assume that one has paid for and acquired (through legitimate means) an aftermarket version of the factory bios with an expanded list of options. Let's also assume that the Bclk setting is still disabled. Is there one single setting that could lock the Bclk at a full 100.00mhz?

    That's a good balance of settings :)

    255.75 Amps. 1023 is the maximum value.
    You're slipping, brother.
    (The Asus bios maxes out at exactly 255.75 amps), and since 0 is a value, that's 1024 possible values (2 to the power of 10 minus 1)
    Putting 1024 into a MSI Bios reverts the amps to 70 amps.

    Ha ha ha, yes it's Intel's consumer platform (1151) firmware/ theoretic max for everyone regardless of ODM or BIOS vendor. EC and actual hardware limits are a lot lower for most boards...

    How do they get by this on HEDT platforms with 16-28 corez?
    I mean a CPU pulling 800 watts is more than 300 amps...

    Different platform, different limits.

    Oh man, so close... yet so far!

    [​IMG]

    Went from 24.4k graphics to 24.9k.
    1080 is pretty much limited by thermals at this point, as it's no longer hitting the power limit. However, the p775tm1's heatsink just can't keep up with the card, so min/maxing the voltage curve is the next step?

    On a side note, I had some spare thermalpads, so I've added them to the underside of vram, capacitors and the gpu, dropping max temps by 7c. :eek: Effectively turning the motherboard into a backplate for the 1080. I'll have to keep an eye on PCH temps to see if this is feasible long term.

    Oh yeah, and Ripjaws booted @3100 15-17-17-39 with a little more juice, at 1.35v :D
