    I don't usually overclock or mod much. I will def read up on it though.

    It’s free performance, plus the video cards already overclock them selves dynamically. Your just giving it a boost.

    I overclocked the gpu from Aero 15x v8 FHD144Hz with MSI Afterburner, although without painful undervolting/overvolting with frequency/voltage graph, I have only archived +215MHz core frequency and +650~700MHz memory frequency with 3DMark Fire Strike.

    Maybe it will be better to do overclock after reapplying the thermal paste, something like Liquid Metal.

    Overclocking is a useful tool. My (4) core 7820HK is running on par with a (6) core 8750H that just came out. Sometimes much faster, but usually on par with it.

    I’m at 4,720Mhz daily now. Liquid metal got me there! I’d say that’s a lot of free performance!

    Just wondering how Windows and most programs handle 4K at the moment.

    I’m currently holding my breath in hopes of Apple announcing a MacBook worthy of the “Pro” name but if they don’t, which is likely, I’ll definitely go for the Aero.

    I really recommend GS65 instead of Aero 15x v8, it has a really horrible keyboard. Not just about the feeling of typing. There's serious problems about typing sensitivity due to inappropriate hardware key switch design.

    I really enjoy windows 10 With 4K. My laptop was set to 250% scaling when I first got it. And I changed it to 100% " No scaling " at all. I have been using it that way ever since. I do not wear glasses, and, I'm using a 17" laptop. Sometimes if I need better viewing, if I'm doing a lot of work on multiple windows, I will set my scaling to 125% But, I have not done that in a while.

    I really like 4K, I like the pixel density, I like all of the room I have for working with applications.

    Everything I use has no issues with 4K. It is very rare, if I run in to some kind of problem with 4K, and scaling issues.

    Yeah I love the Mac but until they out in a real video card I'm not interested.
