    I don't use AWCC to OC. Never have, never will. It sets the OC like the BIOS where your all core OC is not the same as single core OC. I even say in my post that if I set the all core multiplier in TS (Throttlestop) to 5.0 or above that in HWInfo and Riva it will not show over 4.9. Did you even read my initial post?. Nowhere in it is AWCC mentioned.

    What exactly is your findings on the cause? Do you think it is a bad batch of Mosfets, or bad soldering joints? Or maybe the way power is directed though the Card?

    Ah, my bad! Must have got it mixed up in my head, thought you had said you tried AWCC and it wasn't working so you tried TS, which didn't work either. So in my case, if HWinfo is showing 4.99 on all cores then I'm safe to assume that my 5ghz overclock in AWCC is sticking.

    has anyone else run into the problem of your gpu downclocking really low while in a game. It has happened to me several times where my 2080 will be running like a champ and then boom outta nowhere it downclocks to like 300-450MHz for a couple of minutes and then jumps right back to where it was. This is without any thermal or voltage limits being hit.

    What makes it even weirder is that I can benchmark this thing all day long in FS, Timespy, Kombustor, etc.... and it doesn't do this. Only in games ( the only two games I have played since getting the laptop, Division 2 and Metro)

    Am not going to post direct DM's from my own twitter.
    If you don't believe me, so be it. I have no obligation to help any of you guys here. Am already rather pissed about the news that my laptop will be delayed till end of April.
    As a matter of fact, this post of yours was rather enlightening.

    Why would I have to help the likes of you, I will no longer post about it.

    That's the kind of thing someone who doesn't have proof and got caught posting something false would say. Not wanting to post personal DM's I can understand, but the overly defensive comments I can't.

    I actually would really like to go back to what my laptop shipped to me with...

    1.2.0 BIOS and pre-200W vBIOS
