Will I kill my GPU if I do this?

Hi! So, I have a Zephyrus G14, and I have my RTX 3060 set at 95 Watts and am loving the performance increase. I was just wondering if I could bump it up to 130 watts with no issue as a redditor said that doing that may cause VRM issues and I'm scared of my GPU dying. The original TGP was 80 watts and a 50-watt increase may be a bit much for this laptop GPU. Thanks!

Yep not right away but if you load the cpu and gpu enough there will be either A decrease in battery because you are drawing more than the power brick can handle B your computer will overheat or C Your pc might crash either hard or just a reboot.

 

P.S How did you do that the power slider is supposedly locked also do you have solid data or is it a placebo effect?

I have an ASUS G14 2021 with Manjaro KDE and I am a professional Linux NoOB and also pretty bad at General Computing.

Doing anything to a laptop to increase its heat output is dumb. I am also not sure how you plan on doing that as you most certainly will need to flash a modded VBIOS and maybe a modded BIOS, which are also two of the things you really should not do when you have no means of recovering it yourself.

I don't know how to respond to a specific person on this forum, but I use an air purifier to cool down my laptop and it's actually very affective and I use my CPU at 20 degrees on the air purifier so if I were to use 130 watts for the GPU and 20 for the CPU, I should be fine right? At stock, I could use 80 Watts for the CPU and 80 Watts for the GPU. Also, to do the 95 Watt VBIOS I used NV Flash and an ASUS ROG M15 VBIOS I found on Reddit. I just want to know like with the best cooler and a 20 Watt CPU, would it work, or would I break something? Also, my laptop limits the GPU to 40 watts on battery power if I were gaming portably. To recover the laptop, the laptop has an iGPU that I can use to run Windows on NV Flash the old 95-watt VBIOS back on if it doesn't work, I just don't want to break anything running Unigine Heaven,
