Windows power settings can't deal with the extra power options for my GPU(s).

I have onboard and discrete both. My lappy switches between them to save power. Unfortunately, this means some programs wind up using the wrong one. Like I had a benchmark program that insisted on doing its 3d benchmarking on my onboard graphics. You can change from automatic to discrete in BIOS or through a utility that ships with the laptop.

My CPU is actually relatively cool, and under normal workloads my laptop isn't that noisy.

Gaming of course, is one area where the fans really kick on. And that's where the discrete GPU is necessary.

Unfortunately, my discrete GPU seems to be thermally throttling itself more than it should have to, meaning the cooling situation probably isn't altogether ideal.
There's smoke in my iris
But I painted a sunny day on the insides of my eyelids
So I'm ready now (What you ready for?)
I'm ready for life in this city
And my wings have grown almost enough to lift me
