In Topic: So what are differences between Optimal and Adaptive power in nvidia panel?

Seems like a serious problem with the gpu, the frames should never drop, even for 1 second, I'd act quick and rma it while it is still under warranty.

Lol. This. :)

I am worried now about psu.

You're worried about everything.  Please go away.

In Topic: 3TB drive Formats As 746.39GB

I believe they purposely put limits on cases and raid cases so you will have to buy a new one when your drive dies just outside of warranty... They know drives will be bigger in time and you will want bigger...

There's no conspiracy, it's just that the older chips have crappy firmware/hardware that wasn't developed with large drives in mind.  They literally can't access higher LBAs.

In Topic: Should I be concerned about uncorrectable sectors?

Unless it starts growing rapidly they'll just be remapped.

A long HD Tune health test (the one that reads every sector and gives you a speed map) is my go-to test. Any "bad" areas on disk will show up as errors or slow spots.

I have drives that reported bad sectors when new and went on to years of 24/7 service.

It's a virus. You should just sell your computer.
