And it isn't just a 10980XE, also 9980XE, 9960X
I keep my PCs cool - they all have the same case (well not the exact same one - they have their own)
When it is challenge time, I think I have been able to curse these tasks away by running them for about 2 minutes. Could it be the 2 cores running faster? It may not be a GPU interaction because this happens on my 9960X which has no GPU activity. Is there another parameter in addition to FFT? Just curiosity. I only select tasks when it is a challenge.
