Unlocking the Nvidia Power Limit (all cards!)

After applying the Liquid Metal on one of the resistors I measured again to check the resistance.


It already dropped to 5.8 mOhm which should almost double the Nvidia Power Limit. After applying Liquid Metal on the second resistor as well I measured a resistance of 1.9 mOhm. This means that the Power Limit is almost totally disabled.

If you are worried about the removal of Liquid Metal here is a picture of before and after. The left resistor after removing Liquid Metal and the right resistor is stock.


Almost no difference so fine to remove after modding 🙂

To complete the mod you have to apply solder/silver paint/liquid metal on all of the 3 shunt resistors.

This mod applies to many other cards. Here other examples:
