    There was more than just BIOS for the P870DM-G. Did you do the hardmod to supply the 1080 with an additional 3.3V rail

    Hey guys, got 2 x 1080's in my P870KM1 i purchased from @DaMafiaGamer (what a great guy btw) I have modded my heatsink for the slave card with a 5mm shim and its making good contact. However what i have noticed is the slave card is drawing up to 200w which is increasing the temp by a fair margin whilst the master draws up to 180W so i am assuming both are on different vbios. Would anyone be so kind to give me some help around flashing the vbios's so they match at 180w?

    Motherboard bios flashing not a problem, but i have never touched a vbios and want to

    A: make sure i am flashing the right bios
    B: make sure i do not brick anything by doing something wrong

    Yes there were, Khenglish tried getting the 3.3V from the MXM pins but soldering just the 3 fine pitch pins without bridges is difficult so he ended up getting it from nearby on the mobo instead.

    And technically I was not quite correct, it's not a 3.3V rail it's a 3.3V enable on those pins (without which the vbios chip doesn't get power IIRC).
