I have i4790k and a GTX 1070.  In trying to see what is causing some big pauses around EGLC, I see that if I limit my FPS to 31, my kill-a-watt shows 180 watts.  If I set FPS to unlimited, I will go to 280.  This was clear day, no ActiveSky.  Limiting to 31 FPS seems to be ok and I save money and the planet too.   :dance:

 

I originally had ORBX England (and all the base ORBXs), but since going to latest p3d version, something has been broken (yet OOM seems a few times less).  I did uninstall England as OOM was just too much around UK2000 Heathrow.

 

Going back to original issue, I found that traffic causes quite a bit of pausing.  I did try cranking up shadows, but gives some FPS hit on the 1070.
