  1. May I ask why you think it wouldn't be a serious performance downgrade? I always thought thermal throttling meant something like -10 or 15 fps or something.
  2. I have a Gigabyte Windforce RTX 2080. It says that the base clock is 1515 Mhz and that the boost clock is 1710 Mhz. It also says that the GPU will start throttling at 83 degrees, which I sometimes hit. Now, what would be throttling? Dropping below the boost clock (1710) or the base clock (1515)? I don't know why, but my GPU often runs at like 1890 Mhz, but at 83 degrees it drops down to 1785 Mhz which is still higher than the advertised boost clock of 1710 Mhz. Anyone know what's going on? I don't understand at what point one would start seeing a big performance impact.
  3. I'm not planning on overclocking it. I'm just wondering if performance could be negatively affected if I leave it at stock settings.
  4. How would the AsRock z370 Pro4 and i7 9700k fare together? Before anyone says anything, I know that this board isn't high end, but I just had no money for anything else and won't have it for a very long time. My question is, I've been told that this board's VRM's might not properly power this exact CPU. Is that true? Does anyone have any experience with these components used together? Will performance really be affected? I don't want to overclock, but I've been told that turbo boosting might go badly with this board. I've seen a video on youtube and it seems to be fine, but I don't know if I'm allowed to post links here. I'd appreciate some light shed on this, thanks.
