External Monitor Not Going Beyond 40FPS

Hello everyone, I hope you're all doing well in these difficult times. I have an issue and would really appreciate your input.

I recently installed my eGPU with a graphics card. It is connected to an external monitor via DisplayPort. When I play games, currently tried Halo Master Chief Collection, Overwatch, Wolfenstein II, and The Witcher III, my external monitor does not beyond 40FPS independently of the graphic settings I use. For some reason, in certain moments the FPS goes beyond 40 but no higher than 60. What could it be? Below you'll find the details of my setup.


-Razer Blade Stealth (2019) - Intel i7-1065G7 @ 1.30GHz, 16GB RAM, GTX 1650 Max-Q, 1080p 60Hz Screen

-Razer Core X Chroma with an RTX 3070 MSi Gaming X Trio, connected to Laptop via ThunderBolt 3 Cable, not the one included in the Core because it is too short, so I'm using this one by Cable Matters, https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01H5QF2TK/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o07_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

-PX7 Prime, 1440p, 165Hz, connected to the GPU using a DisplayPort cable ( https://www.amazon.com/Pixio-FreeSync-Certified-Warranty-Compatible/dp/B07WGXXV55)

I would really appreciate any solutions you suggest, hope to hear from all of you soon!

Do you mind sharing screenshots of how the GPU appears on the Device Manager and your in-game settings? You also want to make sure that the games are running on the RTX 3070 and not with the laptop's iGPU or dGPU.
Hi @Razer.Caziel , I figured it out! Apparently the "Whisper Mode" was turned on in GeForce Experience settings. Once I turned it off, it works wonderfully. Thank you!

@Salchicha Nicely done, and thanks for updating the thread! I'll be taking note of this to troubleshoot similar issues moving forward. *Thread locked as resolved.
