Windows 10: 2017 Hardware Thread
Nope, I am right there with you. I think my GPU has a slight overclock right from the factory, but that's as far as I take it. I'm running a lowly EVGA 1060 FTW+, but it does a great job with everything I throw at it.
Well I need mine to handle more than I might throw at it
An update on my stress test "problem".

It does look like VDroop is the culprit.
No matter if I'm OC'd at 4.9, 4.6, 4.4 or not OC' at all(default 4.0 with core #0 at 4.2 turbo boost) I (only) when I stress test the voltage drops.
I found this while learning to use OCCT better, and it makes a series of chart shots save to .png files when it has run through. Here is an example of 4.6GHz:
Here you see that the LLC Ring stays steady although:
voltage LLC Ring
And the VID voltage looks like a heart attach:
So now I need to learn how to compensate(safely!) for it in MSI Click 5 BIOS
Load-Line Calibration: why overclockers should care - CPUs, Motherboards, and Memory - Linus Tech Tips
*Given the small voltage tolerance that overclockers are working with (increased voltage is proportional to the CPU frequency/multiplier that an overclock can achieve), a droop in voltage applied to CPU can make a theoretically stable overclock unstable (dropping the voltage below that required to achieve the set frequency). *LLC applies additional voltage to the CPU to combat vdroop so that when switching to load, there is sufficient voltage to keep that frequency stable.

Hey guy's this post is to get information and thoughts about the current GPU market
#1 I find it highly ridiculous the new GPU's released are so hard to get in retail it's making me wonder why it's so hard ?
