I can't select "unverified bios" in the vendor section. So how else do we browse unverified bios?

Edit: Found it, it got moved to the GPU brand, not vendor.

Investigating an issue with the EVGA RTX 3080 Ti XC3 not being able to access it's full TDP it's advertised with.

I wanted to look at similar TDP cards, the Gigabyte Eagle and MSI Ventus.

The users flashed these bios and still had an issue, so it sounds hardware or firmware related.

Power and cooling, and ambient temperature are major factors.

Pull the heatsink, put better compound on, reseat heatsink.

I know you asked for this awhile ago, but the good news is, EVGA fixed the bios and now the XC3 users are getting more power draw. About 30-63W more.
