    yep, while using msi afterburner once it hits the CPU temps goes up and the GPU coreclocks go down for about a minute then it goes back to normal again.

    Sometimes UWP/native w10 apps keeps running in background and causes micro-stutters in games. If you go to AW Command Center install location you'll find iolo energy booster, simply click on it and it will suspend most unused apps and services while gaming.
    Do you use DDU for clean installing GPU drivers?

    Guys, i am currently living outside of America and am in need to buy thermal pads.

    I am having a had time finding them, so i decided to try aliexpress.
    I will be doing a repasting and the PCH mod while im at it.
    this is what i found on aliexpress:
    https://www.aliexpress.com/item/100...lgo_pvid=c31144f0-8190-4ee1-9ce0-b121766ecfbc

    is this any good?
    if not, can you send me a better one (link).
    what else would i need? i already bought the mod, waiting for it to be shipped.

    Sorry for broken english.

    PCH is just one thing, make sure ur heatsink is in contact with all those power delivery VRMs.. ive seen prochot being triggerd due to those as well. get a thermal pad like arctic or fujipoly or GC extreme..

    I got this from my old pc desktop mainboard, 5mm to the highest top and 3mm to the second. What is the exact height for the heatsink? Thanks.
