So I wanted to give an update-
Running intel XTU with a -.095 undervolt and using GPU Tweak II from ASUS with a GPU Temp limit set at 77- I've seen my performance stay in the mid-to-high 70's consistently when gaming on Overwatch on High Settings and capped frame rate at 65-70 FPS. No stutters or any other issues.
If I leave frame rates uncapped, I can hit 120+ FPS easily (phew, good ol' 2070), but temp soars back into the high 80's (but still no stutters)
If I try to push to -0.1 V I get the BSOD, so I'm pretty sure that's the limit my computer can be undervolted (sucks).
While internet browsing/youtube I sit at low 50's and high 40's.
Between Intel XTU and Throttlestop, which is better (or more stable)?
I've noticed whenever I restart my computer, XTU resets and doesn't save my profile. Neither does the GPU Tweak II from Asus. I have to re-set both on launch. Also I've noticed that XTU bugs out when I try to launch the Armoury Crate.
If throttlestop is more stable I'd much prefer to use it to undervolt the CPU, CPU Cache, and GPU.

I bought a GL504 and ended up exchanging it for a GL704GW before eventually just returning it. No matter what I tweaked I couldn't get 144 fps on the built in display. If I plugged into an external display, the frames would instantly shoot up to where you would think they'd be for a 2070 running overwatch on Low. Basically I could get either 110 frames on ultra/epic and have high temps or get 120-160 on low settings with med-high temps. (Basically I could never get a stable 144 fps on the built in 144hz display, no matter how much I lowered/tweaked settings)
After multiple clean installs of windows, updating and rolling back drivers, undervolting slightly with XTU, and raising and lowering in game settings, I feel like it's either in dire need of a bios update, or Nvidia Optimus was causing weird issues (integrated graphics are what's directly connected to the display, so gpu has to go through Intel graphics before hitting the display.)
My rant is slightly off topic I know, but I just wanted to chime in with my experience since the only reason I joined the forum was to figure out if the weird ass performance curve was fixable/common
