Hello. I recently purchased and OEM HP RTX 2080Ti and i am wondering what kind of bios i can flash to it to get little bit more power limit. I have also purchased G12 bracket and i will install NZXT Kraken X41 from my old GTX 1080 on it.

Current bios details below:
Code:
GPU Device Id: 0x10DE 0x1E04
Version: 90.02.17.00.A4
PG150 SKU 31 VGA BIOS

GPU Board
Connectors
  1x HDMI
  1x USB-C
  3x DisplayPort
Board power limit
  Target: 250.0 W
  Limit: 280.0 W
  Adj. Range: -60%, +12%
Thermal Limits
  Rated: 84.0C
  Max: 88.0C
Memory Support
  GDDR6, Samsung
  GDDR6, Micron
  GDDR6, Hynix

GPU-Z screenshot and how the card looks like attached. I am not sure if it is A or non A chip, but i am assume it is not A. What kind of bios are safe to flash to NON-A cards?

I did answer your question. Any BIOS designed for device ID 10DE 1E04 will probably work, assuming you followed the other guidelines.

There is always a risk to brick the card when messing with VBIOS. See this thread if something like that happens.

I read reports of flashing bios from A card to NON-A card will brick it. Question is how to check if bios is from card with A chip or not?

No. OP is right about A and non-A for RTX 2080 Ti. However, I cannot confirm if a BIOS crossflash will cause a brick or not.

Sounds unlikely but can't say for sure. It's possible the brick was caused for other reasons.

Its not false info, Nvidia stopped making two SKUs, but there still on the market.

So the question now is: Is the bios with different SKU will work?? My Bios have SKU31, those with more power limit are SKU32

I can't tell you for sure. Its 60/40. Try it only if you have the tools to recover.

There is an SKU in for a palit card that allows to push the power limits higher, but it has 2 fan bios and may/may not work with the blower fan.

Here is the link to it https://www.techpowerup.com/vgabios/208274/palit-rtx2080ti-11264-190131

this will give you a 310W limit vs the 280W, although i doubt that blower could handle it. I would Undervolt and OC that card and call it a day. That blower won't give more than +50mhz with the mod and will sound like a jet, with the undervolt you will get a steady 1900mhz or so and the rig will be much cooler and quieter.

Blower will go, Kraken X41 will be mounted on it.

Will flash palit one, will post results soon.

So. Flash went fine, gpu is working however i was only able to ramp up the fan to 2200rpm (blower is 5k rpm max) and also there was a glitch with google chrome. When i was starting it, it was black window coming up. Maybe that was a driver issue. Anyway, back to square one, flashed back hp and i will keep looking :) Now at least i know i have NON-A variant for sure :) Thanks for help.

yeah that's the issue with it, the fan control.

I've used that bios on my Gigabyte cheapo 2080ti and the power feature does indeed work for when you go Kracken.

Also you do need to reinstall drivers after flash because sometimes it reverts to windows crapola drivers thinking it's a new card.

I will try it again when i get kraken installed, on fresh Windows 10 :) It will be actually good, because Kraken G12 vrm fan is only 1500rpm max and bios allows 2200rpm max.

Weight282 g
Fan Dimensions92 x 92 x 25 mm

Part of your limitation is the blower style cooling. Increasing the power limits is not a good idea on cards with coolers like that.

Comparing to blower noise, Kraken noise is nothing :)

I did some tests and looks like card have some potential. With power limit 100%, voltage not touched and +160Mhz on core card is super stable, even with blower cooling system. It will be only better on water. Core is most of the time on 1995Mhz, max 2040.

very nice. That extra 30W will help out as I can hit the 280w limit undervolted. A good test is the timespy gfx test 2. GPU-Z will show the perfcap reason.

GFX test 2 will make you power throttle more than most games and is the same/repeatable each time. At 280w I would bet you're going down to 1800mhz if not lower.

Here is a good guide to tune your OC using the voltage curve so that when you do throttle, it's to a higher clock that you set the curve on.
