    Just buy a cheapo 1.8v SPI programmer from eBay(less than 5€).

    The TL866 is a massive overkill of a programmer to just program a soic flash once or twice in its lifetime.

    If it supports the chip it will work. As I said I don't own this device. I am not techsupport.

    So i changed the voltage using afterburner, and the problem goes away for a while until i decided to play Destiny 2 which crashes the system immediately as i start playing :/
    Has anyone tried this game ?
    games like Witcher was crashing my system before i changed the voltage but after that the problem goes away,but not for Destiny 2 :(

    What did you change the voltage to? Have you checked that the curve stays completely flat after a reboot? I know my curve was not sticking totally 100% flat and I had to open afterburner and click apply again to make it flat again (as upon each reboot there was 1 spot where it developed a slight bump up in voltage for some reason)... I suspect dragon center or windows or sth was messing with it for me... If 0.9V does not work in all scenarios, you can try 0.8V as that was the sweet spot for my bd prochot... Otherwise if you are out of warranty, well, you are screwed.

    PS. it may be unrelated and game specific, any errors in the log? BSOD?

    LUL i know im screwed long time ago, even with the warranty that not gonna help because all they do is limit the clock speed and not solve the problem,
    also i uninstalled Dragon Center because it nothing but trouble
    im going to change the volt to 0.8V and see if things change

    Don't celebrate just yet. Test it for a while... Also it is possible the issue will surface at some point again and you will be forced to scrap the laptop or replace the gpu completely. No one knows if undervolting even helps permanently. Imo what is faulty is faulty, which is why I am glad MSI took mine back. If you do have warranty, I would push for it. If you are nice and patient and explain it way tooooo many times, they will exchange the gpu, or give you a replacement. You have a right for a fully functioning laptop, you did not sign up for the need to undervolt after all when you bought it.
