    IIRC the V3 Bios was a private BIOS from prema that did more finetuning and did 9xx series card natively supported by the drivers, which made them installable without modding drivers.

    The bottleneck you're talking about mostly stemps from limited TDP. Especially the Gecube version which is limited to 115W compared to the MSI 150W.
    Also due to pascal cards having a thinner die, you need a shim in order to do proper contact, otherwise it will heat up considerably.

    That's not too surprising but it's about the best the chassis will produce.

    Hi,

    I don't have PM privileges yet otherwise I would go that route, but I am trying to reach Meaker@Sager to ask a question regarding the GT780DX. I ordered some parts and have some questions so that I can avoid damaging any components. Is there a mod who can give me PM ability? Thank you

    Which 1070 is it? Eurocom one? Also the 180W power brick is WAY too small for the 1070, you need 230W one from Eurocom.

    Yeah the 1070 eurocom one, i dont mind getting the 230W i just need to see it booting well after that i go around to find the right power brick. Could this BSOD be the card not getting the juice that it need than windows goes bananas because of that?
    Should i go and flash the P150EM bios on it? i have Prema's 1.02.17PM V2 and EC 1.02.11PM

    [Edit]
    O Yeah about the 230W looking fast here the plug is different, any ideas?

    Which windows are you using? I forgot to ask, if I remember you need either W8.1 or W10 running in UEFI mode with GPT partition.
    Also the Eurocom 230W brick you can find it on the P150EM upgrade side works with the P151EM, same plug

    Latest W10 and i'm not using uefi mode.... could this be the the cause of constant BSOD?!?

    I found this one here Delta 230W the problem is the tip but i can just rip the tip and solder it with my older one.

    You need to use UEFI, disable legacy and use GPT partition, MBR wont do.
    You will sadly have to reinstall Windows .
    Use a different harddrive to test it so you wont have to purge your already installed Windows image in case it wont work but it should.

    Also they sell converter cables you can use instead of modifying the brick.
