Its a reference board, so by all means bios can be fixed relatively easily.
But its literally like 400 pts less, and I'm still clocking 2040 average. I'm not really that worried about it IMO.
Here is the 3dmark comparing it vs the FTW3 without the 500 watt bios. I actually manage a better overall clock, but like you said. I assume the power limit is hindering it at some points.
