    It's a gruelling process man. I freak out every time I have to remove that bottom lid haha. Btw in the picture below (found on the internet), "Device ID" is a unique identifier?

    Nope, it is not. Looks like its just a model number of sorts.

    It's card type (+subtype) and vendor, like my NVidia GTX680M from MSI is 10DE 11A0 1462 10BC (MSI is that 1462) (and Nvidia is 10DE).

    That just adds to my suspicions that it is a software/firmware fault since my problems were also solved with reinstalling vbios (0d version), bios and windows...
    I have the samsung memory and no issues anymore. Before my card would clock up too high and get unstable, now despite the same vbios it is OK.
    It is not summer or temperatures. My room temp is the same as before yet it doesn't go over 1900 or 2000 anymore (about 25-26 degrees celsius). Plus the laptop never goes above 75 degrees celsius on GPU (100% load) without coolerbooster (with it it's about 65-66 max). Any throttling happens above 85 or even 90 degrees I believe, but definitely not below 80. Plus if it were temperatures, then it would still boost like crazy shortly when you start putting load on it but that does not happen. IMHO it is magic how the clock speeds are regulated. It's just magic. And I do love how the cpu sits at 34 degrees when room temp is 26 lol (just browsing the internet... with 12 tabs ;x).

    Try uninstalling dragon centre might help.

    Oh, you've got a 1070?

    Yeah, well, wasn't your laptop made in 2017? All the 2017 laptops 1070's are problem free.

    Or, do you have a 2016 model?

    Ewwww, well read up here, there's stuff to try... or RMA back to MSI for a new unit with a new 1070.

    Since you are only getting this in Starcraft 2, and that POS is crashing for everyone, I still wouldn't assume you have a bad 1070...try some of the games others here are crashing in.
