    Correction.

    I found out that only after reaching precisely 70C, my GPU clock go down by 13 Mhz. One time and that is it. I have not gone over 85C yet on GPU after the TDP flash.

    Example:

    My all games stable values in MSI afterburner (Ctrl+F) are: 1911Mhz-----0.912V-----+400mem-----@about 100W short power spikes. This does not change until I reach 70C, then my card down-clocks to stable 1898Mhz and stays like that until 85C (I never went above this temperature).

    As soon as temp. drops under 70C, card clocks back up to 1911Mhz.

    Great results. You want to do some 3dmark scores what this little beast is capable off?

    Might be worth a shot for me, to unlock tdp, too. Since i got in locked mode stable 0.900V with 1873 Mhz GPU Clock and 2232 Mhz Mem Clock (+450 in MSI) within 76-78C while gaming. But too scared to ruin something.

    So, it's been a couple of weeks now since I repasted and adjusted the heatsink pressure. I haven't rebooted my machine yet. Had a bunch of rendering and gaming sessions stressing both the CPU and GPU. Here's the result:

    Still no big gap between individual core temps!

    What are your ssd temps dring the write process? You can try to monitor them with hwinfo.
