Hello, what causes Thrm in PerfCap? https://pastebin.com/i2vgkW5a is logs from a Dell GTX 1070 and an AMD Ryzen 3 3300X. After gaming for a few minutes the Thrm's start to show up. Not sure if there's a better way to show the log.

Im guessing you have a Dell pre-built. maybe an alienware machine?? Those alienware PCs are notorious for having little to know airflow because Dell designs the cases for style over substance. So they look cool, but your parts inside literally cook and thermal throttle from the lack of airflow.

The only thing you can do is either send the entire machine back to dell for a refund or buy a better case yourself and take all the parts from the Dell machine and put it inside the new case that should have better airflow.

There are some good cases to be had for $60-80, Maybe even less if on promo/sale

It's a custom build with an open case and a Dell GTX 1070. Does dell still sell PCs with GTX 1070s?

If its an open case and the temperatures are still bad then i'd recommend fitting an aftermarket cooler like an Accelero Xtreme III or a Raijintek MORPHEUS II if you plan on having the card for a while longer

I dont know about dell still selling 1070s with their PCs but I assume they moved over to the 2xxx and 3xxx series a while ago.
