It’s not just games that use the GPU, so setting the power profile to max performance may have been keeping the clocks and voltage up, and the GPU diode temp along with it. However, the temperature of the chip is not what heats the case and you would still only see a minimal power output at the desktop — nowhere near the 250-300W output when gaming and that “waste heat” is what warms the case. Still, no reason not let the GPU clock down and use specific program profiles if you have something that needs it.
