So I've had my computer for a few months now and I've been messing around with Fire Strike a fair bit kind of as a game to see how high I could get my score. With a nice cpu undervolt and an overclock using the Afterburner scanner, I had comfortably settled into the 17700-900 range, which seems pretty good for and i7-9750h, rtx 2070 combo. Last night I read about this feature called PCIe Link State Power Management and after setting that to off when on AC Power (which is what I almost always am), my score went up to 18400+ and placed me firmly within the top 100 scores for this combination of cpu and gpu. Are their any pitfalls to having this setting turned off?

welp I gained some points in superposition 1080p extreme, from 4250 to 4491, I noticed during the benchmark that the average framerate was dropping slower than before and held 33.8 at the end of the test. It seems that your findings work to some extent :D

Can you run and post your crystalmark scores to ssd? There is no problem disabling this but with some laptops when there is nvme ssd and there is limited power to the pcie it can get some problems.
If everything is working okay you should not worry about it.

When everything is okay u can get good scores even roon is upsampling before dac and writing this post same time.

If you run userbenchmark its the easiest way to spot problem in your system even I dont recommend that to benchmarking. https://www.userbenchmark.com/UserRun/29464931
But you can see if some part of your laptop is getting hit by your settings.
