Even if you're stealing electricity, and can't max out the amount of electricity you have available to you, there's literally no reason to be running GPUs at 100% power limit mining. It just uses more electricity/generates more heat and doesn't mine any faster.

I know that Chia has more or less imploded so I figure more carnage cannot be far off
Good. Chia was stupid and the last thing we need in addition to expensive graphics cards is expensive storage as well!
