Is it safe to flash this modded vbios to my 2070S?

System specs: 3600X, 16gb ddr4 3600mhz, msi b450, 2070 super ventus oc, and a 875w power supply

The MSi RTX 2070S Ventus OC card is power locked. I found this post on Reddit with link to a modded vbios on Techpowerup with 12% increase in power:

"So i was overclocking the card and found out that the stock bios didnt allow for power limit increase. I checked online for a way to increase it and i found [this] (https://www.techpowerup.com/vgabios/213608/213608) bios with an increased power limit. I currently have [this] (https://www.techpowerup.com/vgabios/213225/msi-rtx2070super-8192-190701) bios with the locked limit so i am wondering if it is safe to flash the one with the increased power limit."

Not sure where he found it, but he claimed it worked fine. Does anyone know who posts these modded bios to the database? Are they reliable?

Yup should be fine, I also marked that upload as verified.

Just so you are aware, the default power limit is the same, only the manual adjustment range is increased

Thanks! Do I use the modded NVflash or the regular one?

Yup go ahead, just remember fan noise will increase after a threshhold is met
