    Hello, dudes! I've successfully upgrade my laptop to 980M and install the newest driver. But when I played games like PUBG or Watchdog2, the GPU core clock is not stable at 1000+Mhz due to PerfCap Reason:pWR. It makes my game experience very bad:(

    Anyone could help me, thank you all!

    OS: win10 pro
    GPU: Clevo 980M with original vbios
    Display Driver: 390.77

    The GPU performance during playing game:

    shut down, change bios video setting to IGFX, save and exit, boot into windows, make sure everything loads, restart, get into bios, set video to PEG, exit and save, reboot into windows, enjoy throttle free performance.

    What did you use to modify the heat sink? I was thinking of buying a dremel tool, not sure how deep to cut either. I know it is 6MM across
