A desktop 1060 is usually wired with a 6 pin PCIe power cable, so it's outfitted for a total of 150 watts from both that and the motherboard. Unless yours is a Max-Q 1060, it'll probably be close to that draw, which is pretty significant for a laptop if you ask me.

I WILL find your ITX build thread, and I WILL recommend the SIlverstone Sugo SG13B

 

Primary PC:

i7 8086k (won) - EVGA Z370 Classified K - G.Skill Trident Z RGB - WD SN750 - Jedi Order Titan Xp - Hyper 212 Black (with RGB Riing flair) - EVGA G3 650W - dual booting Windows 10 and Linux - Black and green theme, Razer brainwashed me.

Draws 400 watts under max load, for reference.

 

Linux Proliant ML150 G6:

Dual Xeon X5560 - 24GB ECC DDR3 - GTX 750 TI - old Seagate 1.5TB HDD - dark mode Ubuntu (and Win7, cuz why not)

 

How many watts do I need? Seasonic Focus thread, PSU misconceptions, protections explainedgroup reg is bad

I don't think that is normal...cause in PUBG for example i have 140 fps and it drops like 50 to 60 for nothing...NO THERMAL THROTTELING. 
My laptop is Liquid Metal repasted. I have like 70 degrees max temperature in any game.

Does this happen when you are plugged in as well? Also, have you undervolted your CPU? Might improve power delivery

I think it has to do with the objects being rendered, I think the waiting zone loads in more stuff to prepare it to be used in game

Don't see an issue. It uses power, needs more. A lot of games push the card harder in the lobby which is why a lot cap the frames there now.

I was wondering if I could get some clarification on the subject I as well have a 1060 but max q and one day just wanted to see what the card was running, temp wise and downloaded afterburner I am getting power limit hit and no load hit when the power limit is at zero so basically just bouncing back and forth from power limit and no load limit  laptops is a hp omen with i7-8750h and gtx 1060max q could i get some help or is this normal for max q cards thermals on gpu never go above 71 degrees c from what I looked up is considered below normal temps when card is pushed to max load
