Have you had bad RTX 2080TI Performance and What did you do to fix it?

So I've been dealing with this 2080TI which has unfortunately just been giving me issues. It's performing at about 50% of what it should.

The perfcap reasons are sometimes PWR sometimes VREL but it largely fluctuates between 50% to 100% power utilization. It rarely hits the 112% limit which it used to after I had somewhat fixed it.

Some benchmarks never go above 75% util and some will go to 112% and jump back down to 70% then up then down as if something is failing.

I have the EK Water block on it which provides limited thermal pad placements compared to stock. It also makes it difficult to install additional pads due to very low clearance. I want to find very soft pads that wouldn't interfere with distance from chip but I haven't been able to find TRULY soft pads that would stretch in xy direction upon getting pressure.

I've had it happen before but it was the nvidia inspector multi display power save.
I've disabled multi display power save and reinstalled drivers as well as rolled back to 431.36
The GPU is liquid cooled and hasn't gone above 40C
I set the slider to +100% in MSI Afterburner
It's the 2080TI MSI Ventus

I did just upgrade from my old setup (RVE10, 5960X 4.3 2400 RAM) to (X299 FTWK EVGA, 7820X 4.5, 3000)
I upgraded when i took apart the gpu and loop because of this throttling issue. Prior to that, my temps were 65ish under load for the GPU because I had very high restriction on the pump and possibly some bubbles in the Nemesis GTX rad which I swapped out for an Xflow.

I honestly am out of ideas. Have spent a lot of money and time on this and haven't been able to get some good VR time in for more than a month. I'm running a pimax and a vive pro and neither work well with my old 1080.

So, please lmk if you've had similar issues with the 2080ti and what you've done to overcome them?

i can't think of the company name atm, but there's a "high end" pad company (used to be for sale on FCPU and PPC) that presses a clay like solution into sheets, instead of the cheap rubbery stuff most everyone else sends with their cards.

The higher the dissipation with them, the more delicate & clay like the material becomes.

can't get to the site from work to check cuz of some overzealous policy the new dude just put into place, or i'd go find the name.

R.I.P. Zawarudo, may you OC angels' wings in heaven.
If something appears too good to be true, it probably is.
