Yea i dont think any of us are hitting thermal throttles yet lol, musmus even hit 90°C and had no issues so it should be full throttle at all times.

No one is hitting thermal throttles yet, would def be concerning haha.
So here is why combined test is more important then physics.
"3DMark Fire Strike Combined test stresses both the GPU and CPU
simultaneously. The GPU load combines elements from Graphics test 1 and 2
using tessellation, volumetric illumination, fluid simulation, particle simulation,
FFT based bloom and depth of field.
The CPU load comes from the rigid body physics of the breaking statues in the
background. There are 32 simulation worlds running in separate threads each
containing one statue decomposing into 113 parts. Additionally there are 16
invisible rigid bodies in each world except the one closest to camera to push
the decomposed elements apart. The simulations run on one thread per
available CPU core.
The 3DMark Fire Strike Combined test uses the Bullet Open Source Physics
Straight from their technical guide, so for gaming (if it even translates to better fps or not is yet to be seen) using a balanced power plan is better in firestrike, not sure if using a program to set it to 0% makes any difference as i think thats already what windows is set to but i could be wrong.
You guys could try without running a core parking program (or deleting it completely) and see if the scores are still fairly close to each other, if not then yea running the program will help.

Ive yet to test it (still waiting for my SECOND board haha) but if youre running stock clocks you need to run it in hp mode, for OC it doesnt matter as we dont use xfr.
