Thanks, everyone.
If I run FPS wide open I see very high FPS even during gameplay. However, my unregs are very high.
I'll try 251.
Does DesiredRefreshRate have any impact?

Honestly it doesn't matter unless you're on Windows 7 (haven't tried 8). The cap on Win10+ doesn't work at all. If you're interested, here's an iso with integrated xhci/nvme/i225v drivers (works on my Z790 system): https://drive.google.com/file/d/1JT7lvo ... drive_link You'll need to figure out your network and GPU drivers (intel i226v, nvidia 4xxx and radeon 7xxx have no win7 drivers). I'm using an AIC NIC since my motherboard has i226v.
