Recently noticed my max power draws will hit 230w board and 170w chip. I look at the log file and cannot find at what point it actually spikes to those excess draws. So is it a bug or wth is going on. I dont seem go have any more performance and it only happens occasionally. I watch it during kumbustor and it never spikes. Only when playing cod modern warfare it will usually do it within 30 minutes.

NVIDIA's driver will detect Kombustor/Furmark and throttle the GPU. Try stopping and starting it, that should help get you some peaks
