I followed the steps here as well:
However if I disable thermal throttling in my bios (It DOES fix my fps issues), my system will utterly crash after running for under 5 minutes every time, if even that. Leaving it on however causes massive CPU throttling in certain games, to a slow down of around 18 FPS.
I checked my temperatures with multiple tools, but usually the high 40C marks are the highest I've ever seen it g, even under game stress.
Tried almost everything, thinking about getting a new cooling system, overclocking isn't my real concern, just getting it to stop throttling in certain games would be great. If I was to get a new cooling fan/heatsink, are there any suggestions, or is there something else at play here? Thank you.
