    @unclewebb is a legend. He's probably saved uncounted numbers of people from early hardware failure caused by overheating components and has likely been at least a contributing reason as to why Intel has stayed dominant as long as they have. I know I'm not the only one that looks at these toasty chips with mediocre cooling solutions and says, "at least I can make this work with Throttlestop."

    Hey guys

    Need help for my new m17 R3 RTX 2070 Super( still under warranty)
    Pc crashes on high gpu demand operatios such as 1080p furmark test or video games.
    I was only able to perform a small stress test and upload on youtube.

    1080p furmark stress test crashes in a few seconds.



    And power button is blinking red and blue after 2-3 minutes im small stress test. Returns to solid blue 1 minute after stress test ended.
    Bios 1.7.2
    What i have tried so far;
    Reinstalled gpu driver
    Bios install manually
    Reinstall windows many times.
    Checked power cord , cables and power socket.
    I coordinated with Dell Support . Motherboars and gpu will be replaced. However i need to wait long until parts arrive.
    I would try to undervolt and underclock my gpu. But these options are locked. Cpu and ram has no over/underclocck option. Gpu’’ power limit and thermal limit is locked. Unable to unlock in both alienware control center and msi afterburner. The only option to overlock is mhz of gpu ram.
    any suggestion peculiar to this situation?

    thanks in advance

    this is when system crashes

    You can actually undervolt your GPU. I afterburner press ctrl-f to bring up the curve editor, click on the first point on the left, press ctrl-l to lock it. Could help if the GPU only crashes at higher voltage.
