    Yeah but what's weird is using furmark to stress I get power throttling even though it's at only 60w(I set the target to 90)

    Try not to use furmark. Furmark stresses the vrms way to much. Use synthetic bemchmarks like heaven or valley. For recording the power consumption hwinfo worked really well for me

    With hwinfo you can set up the osd showing the power consumption on screen while using heaven or valley :). Furthermore you should always keep in mind that your card just uses the mxm slot as power delivery - correct me if i'm wrong.

    I know. I have GPU z on top of my 1080p heaven bench. With the auto oC from after burner, my clocks are at 1974 under toasty conditions at 1.05v and the perfcap being vrel(voltage) the card still isnt pulling more than 60w

    here is a log from gpu-z during a firestrike run with a curve on the core. it never goes above 65w and barely goes above 60 at times
    i am using an alienware 17 r1 on the a14+ bios and a 4930mx proc. people have used 230w tdp msi 1080s in this laptop with success.

    Hm the card should consume much more power at this voltage. Just to be sure, you have pulled the slider in afterburner all the way up to it's max?

    Maybe you can pm one of those guys already did this mod in your machine? Have you set "prefer maximum power" in your nvidia control panel?
