    Default Increase PCI-E power?

    Hi again, just had a little question, is it possible to increase the power delivered to the GPU by the on board PCI-E connector? Using a EP45-UD3R F11 Bios I believe, not sure 100%.

    Thanks!

    No it isnt possible, the PCI-e slot is set to provide a maximum of 75W.

    If ur wondering, a 6pin PCI-e connector provides the same amount where as an 8pin connector provides double.

    6pin = 75W; 8pin = 150W
