    GPUs have their own limits on how much power they are allowed to draw and that is likely the limit you are hitting. Afterburner does have options to let you draw more power but if you are already pushing the limits that the software will allow, that is all you can do. Having two bricks will help with total draw from the laptop but won't provide extra power for a single component beyond its limits.

    Thank you for explaining that. Im just curious because I'm coming from a Razer Blade pro laptop and by far had worst experience with not just thermal throttling and also power throttling maintaining that 250watts brick they supplied. Anyway not to stray off the topic im relieve to know its not the same situation.

    Try this.
    Hold shift key down and press F2, release the keys and hold alt key down and press F3.

    No it is a Kingston HyperX SH103S3240G I had laying around. It has been fine since I put it in. Just the last few days it just disappears when trying to update a game on it. Have to reboot to get it back, then same thing again.

    I am going to buy a new drive, just trying to decide on a 3rd M.2 or just a 2.5.
