  • Issue Description: I've recently made the decision to downclock my FX 9590 due to insufficient power draw from my current 600W EVGA GD unit, and now I'm running my CPU at 100% about 2 min any game whether it be Minecraft, R6 Siege, etc. I want to know if upgrading my PSU will fix my issue, because my thermals don't seem that great either. (15-20c thermal margin under load)
  • Hardware: CPU: FX 9590, CPU Cooler: H100X AIO, MOBO: Asrock 990FX Extreme 9, GPU: GTX 970, Case: Thermaltake S71 Urban, Storage: PNY 120gb SSD, WD 500gb HDD.
