    Yeah so I am absolutely confused as to why nobody sees the issue here.

    Your CPU runs abysmal, sub 1ghz clocks in game

    does that low clock rate mean there is a root cause that leads to the crashes, and what do you recommend I do to take action to fix this?

    it happens without the kill-a-watt I put that in place to see if it was drawing too much ( but it is not ).
    is there any way to get a DC power reading from the laptop to see what the power supply is supplying? I don't want to spent $75 on a new power supply if that is not the problem

    Not the neccessary the root, but casued by the root of the problem. You might have a failing power supply or something is wrong with your mainboard.

    EDIT: What are the chances something about xtu has caused this? let me tell you why I ask that. I on a whim uninstalled xtu and command and control, and was unable to create the issue again. then I re-installed command and control, and the issue came back. then I uninstalled c&c, and could not recreate issue. then I installed xtu, and the issue came back. is this just a coincidence or is there something to it? I wish I could controlt he fans without c&c but speedfan does not recognize this aorus/gigabyte fan

    So the CPU runs at normal speeds and no crashed when you removed the stuff? If so then there is your answer. Maybe look for another version of the control center.

    thanks. that's fairly obvious even someone like me knows that.
    I have tried other versions.
    I will post back to the thread if the problem comes back.
    I will buy another p/s today.
    Do you think I should get the same 10.3A 19.5V which is the same it comes with, or go bigger to an 11.8A 19.5? The bigger one is not going to fit in laptop bag, and is $30 more, it is a large square brick.
