yeah, because ASUS wouldn't want you to slap a 301w card into a ROG mobo...Besides anything PCI-SIG can or cannot do, what you are doing, when you ignore the spec, is selling a card that other equipment (MoBo's, for example) aren't designed to run with.
Unless the card exhausts all of it's heat outside of the case, you are also dumping an incredible amt of heat into the case. If it does, then we are looking at one hell of a cooler, if it can exhaust all of it's heat, keep the card cool, and not sound like a dustbuster.
Personally, I think it's a hack job to ignore the specs. Just shows what you are not capable of engineering.
