    I reverted my GPU firmware to stock, for one reason: I noticed that under heavy load, the GPU's sustained power draw would drop from the usual 150W to ~117W, and in one specific title, Battlefield 1, I lost about 14 fps.

    Flashing back the original VBIOS restored the performance to normal.

    It could be worth checking the VRM cooling is snug.

    What's the maximum sustained power draw that the MXM slot on this chassis can withstand?

    It should be able to cope with the draw of the 200w vbios, thermals are more the limit.

    PCI-E is typically rated for 75W with the rest of the power coming from power connector.

    PCI-e specs do not apply to mxm.

    I've had 980m cards drawing over 200w each from the slot.

    That would kill any desktop board.
