Dell - 960M Overheating on XPS 15 9550

  • Playing a game like Overwatch, 5 minutes into the game, the GPU will slowly increase in temp until it reaches 92c at which point thermal throttling will kick in and drop the temperature down to 75c... And my FPS to a magnificent XBOX-like 30 FPS... Here is what I've tried so far.

    On BIOS 01.01.19, when I plug the 18000mah Dell Power Companion in to my XPS 15 9550, the CPU locks to it's x9.0 multiplier. It's as if it's setting the CPU speed on how much power is coming in to the laptop (as the Power Companion is too weak to charge it).
