    AFAIK this isn't how a thermally limited system would behave; it sounds far more like it's exiting PL1/2 turbo and capping power to 65w.

    Zotac sent along a basic 8GB (2x4GB) DDR4-2400 memory kit for the purpose of this review
    Sending out review hardware with this kind of component selection tells you exactly how clueless Zotac are.

    Can always hope they wanted the review to show the "lowest expected performance" and thus provided said memory. Sounds doubtful though.

    We'd have to see how fast it climbed and throttled. They could have manually configured Tau but, honestly, your second point suggests that um.... yeh.... they probably didn't optimise the thermals. I find that utterly bizzaire.

    But, I'd also suggest that any company which wants to create a quality system would not even try this nonsense. You're looking at parts which are simply not suited for a small form factor system. It's that simple. What'll happen is those buying it will complain about the noise. I personally don't get the appeal of SFF systems for high end stuff. Just get a big box and shove it on the floor out of the way.
