    Thanks man! Before doing anything, what are the things that I should make a backup of in Drive C:? I have no files in there other than the OS and the original files that came with it out of the box like the different drivers and utilities from MSI. And also, can I use Macrium Reflect to make a backup without including Windows 10 in Drive C:? If not, what software can I use to make a backup of everything in Drive C: excluding the folders with the OS in it?

    If you read the clean installlation instructions, you just have to press shift+f10 on the partitions page. Then do the prompts to select the disk and clean it.

    If you don't have any important personal datas then don't worry about it. You can always download utilities from MSI with latest version.

    If you want a complete clean installation of OS I suggest don't bother with backup.

    All these new bios updates for the kabylake series gt73's but nothing for the skylake... does this mean skylakes are fine? or does that mean msi has forgotten all about us.... not sure which is easier to believe

    There yes, maybe one of them is the culprit. Jump on new firmware can sometimes give you a worse experience. Don't think new graphics driver will push your scores so far below. I forgot to ask... You benched this worse scores before or after the new clean Windoze install? To rule out the Windoze Crematory Edition as a culprit.

    I might try playing with the graphocs driver for a bit and see if there would be a difference. I did a clean install and installed all the drivers, bios and vbios.
