    So getting that 5 heat pipe will help remedy the power throttling issue I'm guessing. In games, my fps fluctuations alot along with the watts and GPU usage of the card

    If the GPU is getting very hot, yes the 5 pipe heatsink will help. I think that custom heatsink can handle GPUs up to 150 watts. I think it was made for the 1070 in the first place.

    Makes alot of sense why I'm getting alot of performance issues then. I'm looking at my GPU usage going all over the place plus monitoring the GPU power limit on MSI going crazy while underload. It'll have to be a definite buy if I want a usable GPU that will last me a while. Thanks for all the information!

    Thanks for the link. That'll give proof to other brothers and sisters on this forum that an upgrade to the Turing lineup is in fact possible.

    Use XTU and check your core current, change it from 32A to 112A and re-run.

    I'm in the advanced tuning tab right now. No core current at all. My cpu is the 3630 also. The only unlocked settings are turbo boost power max and turbo boost short power max

    Edit: I do have a unlocked bios which I could overclock my cpu. But I'm too afraid to brick my machine. I also found out that my graphics score is 1624 which is right about where it should be but my cpu is bringing down my overall score by 2000
