    This sounds exactly like the problems we had. Downclocking in MSI Afterburner lowers the frequency of crashes but does not eliminate it. Talk to your reseller about a motherboard replacement. After my motherboard replacement, I have had zero graphics related BSODs.

    CS:GO can stress the card in different ways like super high frame rate output.

    Yeah, I'll definitely do that. My brand is Dream Machines, just like @CiuchY. Hope they won't treat me like a moron..

    @Prostar Computer didn't reply back to me for those wondering. I PM them as I did before when they were helping me on Sound Blaster SBX app but they went dark as of page 35 of this thread. Can’t get any love for Bios / EC Firmware links?

    In the end I repasted the GPU / CPU to resolve many issues. Some games I’ve tested under the Xbox GamePass library crash but full BSOD is very seldom. For the most part in regards to stability I didn’t have to under clock the system to play games. I believe a repaste will help many others. The stock one from the factory is low grade. Try choosing one (maybe carbon based) that degrades much less over time.

    I would still would like to get access to EC Firmware and Bios updates for this hardware. Did @Prema figure something out?

    Had to do a repaste again, since my temps were super high...hitting thermal throttle. I had CM Mastergel Maker, and now repasted with Kryonaut. I wonder how long will it last. I travel with my laptop daily so I cannot risk liquid metal but I am thinking of trying those graphite pads or IC Diamond.

    I used TF8 from ThermalRight (13.8 W/mk) bought on Amazon this year. It's carbon based and lasts for several years. They also make something called TFX (14.3 W/mk) that I haven't tried yet it costs a little more. The TF8 was pretty easy to apply and my numbers are still really good so far.

    Clevo bios repository, you'll have to check whether the files there are up to date.

    If you have poor heatsink/die contact, a 0.5mm copper shim works like a charm.

    A decent paper towel is fine as a TIM removal tool.
