    Doesn't work with my external keyboard. I have to use the built in one.

    Trust me, I tested IA AC/DC Loadline on this motherboard ad nauseum. Loadline 1 makes the VID sit nice and pretty in your monitoring software, but in practice it simply does not work as well as the default setting. It does not make the CPU draw less power or run cooler, it only makes it less stable and throttle harder.

    Those settings are in your regular BIOS, unless you have a locked CPU, in which case you would need to use XTU. The stock BIOS hides the entire Overclocking Performance Menu if you don't have a -K CPU, which is dumb.

    I'm sure a lot of you already know how to do this stuff, but I was able to reduce my GPU (1080) temps by a good 6C by manipulating the frequency curve in MSI Afterburner.
    The Witcher 3 was running at about 72-73C before, now it's running at about 66-67C. And Far Cry 5 plays at around 60C. I'm quite happy with the results, keeps my system fans a bit less noisy!

    EDIT: I should probably mention I also use a Notebook cooler.

    Are you using VSync or FPS limit, or letting the GPU run full-bore in those games? What clock speed and voltage does the GPU hit under load after undervolting?

    I limit my FPS to 75 via Rivatuner Statistics Server since the refresh rate of my screen is 75Hz, and use "Fast Sync"
    I copied this guy's MSI AB settings:

    Ah OK that makes more sense now. Limiting FPS makes a huge difference on GPU usage, power draw, and temps.

    Is your screen G-Sync?

    Oh! Good to know! :)
    Thanks!!! Though, I may just leave VSync off completely or continue using Fast Sync. I'll play around with it and see if I notice any tearing. I don't like using VSync if I don't have to.
