    Currently i'm in posession of 2 AW machines. 17 R4 and 17 R5.
    Both are being used for mining atm, but i was thinking about shunt modding my 1080.

    The R5 uses the 1080 with the 200W vbios (my GPU can cross 200W easily) but is it beneficial ?

    How much Wattage could i be able to free up without burning down my house ?
    My goal would be to cross the 250W figure, bringing my 1080 more in line with a 2070 super max-p

    @Mr. Fox and @Papusan you're advise is highly appreciated. Currently holding it out, untill i can get the specced XMG 17 SM-G i want. But they're still pretty overpriced (i only upgrade the GPU and screen from factory)
