    Where did you buy your hotend from?
    Did you assemble it according to the E3D instructions, including using thermal paste and doing the hot-tightening of the nozzle?
    20mm retraction is too much, start with 0. You should not need more than 1mm with a direct drive setup.
    195C is on the cool, side, try 205C, and 215C. Depending on the PLA, maybe even 225C.
    Can you post photos of your prints that are failing?
