GPU monitoring 14W use on 8 PIN connector at 100% usage.

Hi!

I have a problem with my gpu.

It monitoring 14W usage on 8 PIN connector at 100% usage on the card.

I didn't find any tip or fix for this.

The card was not damaged or repaired.

That could be 100% normal or a software bug. Unfortunately since we have NO IDEA WHAT HARDWARE OR SOFTWARE YOU ARE USING I doubt anyone will have any kind of useful input.

I use MSI Afterburner and GPU-Z, both of them monitoring really low power usage on 8-Pin power connector(14W in this case, but it can be more or less).
My pc parts: CPU:i7-4790, MOBO: Asus b85m-e, RAM:1x8GB, 2x4GB, 480GB SSD, 1TB SSD, 1TB HDD

The card is in the first pci-e slot and run in x16 3.0. It have the latest Nvidia driver.
This 8-Pin power draw monitor problem didn't occur now, it started about 3 month.

My gpu is a Inno3D GTX 1070 Ti X2 V2.
 

Also i found out that my 8-Pin connector power is the same as my gpu chip power draw.

Is performance normal? Have you tried an older driver?

If performance is still the same and you're not experiencing any artifacting or glitching then it could be a busted sensor or driver issue. The only accurate way to measure the current draw of the card would be via hardware with specialist tools*.

 

*specialist tools = DC inline or clamp ammeter, or $4000 power analyser, both will do the job.

Idk what you mean at "same performance", for other 1070 ti or the card before the problem.
If before the problem. Yes, perfomance is the same. Even i can overclock like +150Mhz to core clock.
I don't think it's driver problem, it first monitored me this problem like 3-4 moths ago.
The first think(before posted this topic) was the sensor.
I can replace the sensor, but i didn't find any PCB breakdown for this card, and i don't know where i search first.

If the 1070 performance is normal I wouldn't worry too much about it. You got a shunt mod for free lol!

I don't worry, but i want to see my real gpu power draw.
I won't shunt mod my card, bc in my country(Hungary), the president has been set the reduced overhead electricity usage on 210kW/Month, if you use more than 210kW/month,  you need to pay the electricity at the market price(that's high in my country.). 

I try to ask on other forums for this card PCB breakdown, or where can this sensor be.

Just measure overall system draw with a plugin meter between PC and wall. My mining PC for example draws 360W from the wall but all the parts I can measure only add up to about 300-330 Watts. Power supply losses, board and ram, etc make up the rest and add up.
