Hi @ojhudek6 

Disable Multi Core Enhancement and set SVID Behaviour to Best Case.

Test stability.

For gaming it is better to use I5 processors not I9. Because, for the I9 you have 16 low consumption cores (E-Cores) instead of 8 for the I5, but these cores are used for multitasking.
If you are a gamer your I9 is of no use, if you don't do multitasking video reports, work on photos, do 3D, as a professional.

You just spent money for nothing.

However, the 13th and 14th generation I9s are well known for being very energy intensive in electricity, it should not be surprising that it heats up more than the CPUs for gamers which are the I5 or I7 more than sufficient. Because, I'm talking about I5 as 13600K or 14600K for example, and not the 10th generation or below (the 13th and 14th generation are at the top, while the 12th generation was already at the top for the I5). And again, the 13th and 14th generation I7s also run really hot.

By putting an I5 13e, (or 14e which does not provide more performance for more money) is worth the same performance for games as an I9 to the naked eye, because the games use very little work on the cores of performance (P-Cores) for 1440P or 4K and more work if you play games on 1080p.
The CPU will do the calculation to send a report, so the 4K screens already have their graphics performance reporting themselves, the 1080p the CPU must do more work of the report.
