    Check for BIOS revisions etc. Also,

    You say nothing is overheating, but I'd run a stress test or something to see whether that is really the case.
    CPU - R7 1700 @ 3.9GHz | Motherboard- Asus Crosshair VI Hero | RAM - G.Skill Trident Z 16GB 3200MHz | GPU - Asus GTX 1080 Strix | Case - Fractal Define R5 | Boot Drive - Samsung 500GB 850 Evo | Storage - Mushkin Reaktor 1TB, HGST Deskstar 4TB, Seagate Barracuda 1TB  | PSU - Seasonic x-750 750W | Display - Asus PB258Q 25" 1440p |  Cooling - Noctua NH-D15

  • I just sold on of these had zero issues with throttling in the games I tested but the power settings on mine didn’t have high as a setting, just balanced and something to the effect of asus default. 
    My guess is you’ve got a bad power supply or battery that’s not outputting enough power. 
    throttling like that is very reminiscent of overheating VRMs on low end h55 motherboards Brian uses and the older asrock boards I’ve had, when you removed the heat sink(guessing it’s not the first time) did you put back the thermal paste on the VRMs properly or not touch it leaving a gap? asus don’t use normal thermal pads here instead using a super thick thermal paste on the VRMs so it separates every time you remove and replace the heatsink.
