    Works without power limit reason?

    We all know it "works" but without issue?

    Any pictures of the set up? I guess Im in a good position to find out what HWInfo64 says and pick one up, especially since im going to sell my 13 R3.

    According to eepo, the exact card you mention power throttles and why he doesnt use it along with ultimately moving on the Area-51m.

    these news are game changers for the m17x r4 and the ranger. we need more info. 20.000 graphics score in an r4/ranger makes it futureproof for 7+ years

    I think he sold the card a while ago.

    For 200w cards your going to need to splice some of that draw from another source.
