    Hi guys, after a bad gtx 1070 card i get an 1060 and it does work perfectly without throttling issues, just for normal pwr limit (78W)
    next move, get better thermal pads and thermal liquid and flash dell bios that is 88w should keep better high frequencies

    Glad to see it worked out this time. How much did you managed to pick the card up for, if I may ask?

    Anyways no way to get working higher tdp, tried few vbios, with Alienware ones it goes throttling for some reason , it goes below 1ghz also, tried also ho omen one but it bricked the gpu, but I ve managed to recover it again. So no way to get better performance withou an spi programmer haha
