i give you 1 advice after my many years fixing this problem. Everything what you do in windows or bios is just placebo, if something change and helped its just question for minutes - hours and after then everything is bad again.

you should fix your electricity problem, no one knows whats the source , if its EMF or electricity in your house

Why assume everyone who talks about input lag has this problem?

prefetch says in my bios here that it improves performance and its recommend to leave it enabled...

what this prefetch does exactly ?

on my other motherboard bios i have like 4/5 options with this prefetch in it.
and only 1 option prefetch on motherboard that i use right now.

You don't need to disable it in BIOS, just use Windows power settings "High Performance".
This way you can still make use of power savings if you want to by changing this setting.
You can do the same for Nvidia, create a profile for a game with "Maximum performance" and leave the global setting to "Optimal Power".

On my cpu, turbo boost only works with c-states enabled.
