At stock speeds and voltage, it says it uses ~250%...which doesn't seem possible. Note, I do not see this power use translate to actual power use in my KillaWatt either, but there is no doubt it is throttling prematurely. With a 300% limit, I shouldn't be coming close to seeing the clock speeds drop.
Just wondering what you saw on the LN2 bios. Also, did you flash to the new bios they gave out I assume?
Yes, as mentioned in the review, this is an issue with AfterBurner. According to MSI, this issue will be fixed sometime I soon. The issue carries over into all BIOSes and all version of AB.
