Dell power supplies can supply a consistent wattage higher than their written rating; 


I doubt that. 

Plus, it's really not good running ANY PS near it's max-output or at 100% utilization.

Re: GTX 1050ti in dell optiplex 3050

Bruh, I'm maxing Ace Combat 7 locked at 144fps with no stutters.

I figured I would just burn out the PSU and replace the MoBo, but I'm pulling all 125w and utilizing 100% on benchmarks.

I am <<<maybe>>> at max pulling 220 watts; Dells are overpriced **bleep**, but it is working for me despite not having the minimum 400w or whatever rating.

Hi @Mobius One ,

You're the lucky one, dude, and wish you lucky enough in future.

Do come back once in a while so that we know you're still with us.

“May the Force be with Dell.”
