Hi all,

Hoping someone can help me figure out what is wrong with my laptop, I've almost given up. I recently noticed that I was getting FPS in the 0s and teens while playing FFXIV and some other games. At first it seemed to be confined to Steam games. I have uninstalled and reinstalled a couple of games in question, done the same with Steam, rolled back Nvidia drivers even. I finally did a factory reset, which appeared to solve the issue, but after a second gaming attempt found out that it had gotten worse and spread to non-Steam games. After the reset I also ran the Unigine Superposition benchmark, which oddly seems to provide good fps.

My Laptop:
MSi GS65 Stealth Thin 8RF-037US
Processor: Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-8750H CPU @ 2.20 GHz
RAM: 16 GB DDR4
Graphics Card: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1070 with Max-Q Design

This is my first time posting, so forgive me if it's not the best post. I will try to answer questions in a reasonable timeframe.

Thanks!

Hmm, that might be something to consider, but some games are running just fine (Just tried Star Wars Battlefront II). I also am not noticing any particular alarming temperatures (GPU-Z) it's staying in the low to mid 80s with a hotspot of 98 max.
