    Hey what power supply do you guys have for your Aorus X7 Dtv8?

    Bought one and the power supply is so much smaller than for my msi gt73 which also has a GTX1080 in it.

    Cheers!

    DEEP fan control is puzzling me and I hope someone can clarify. Does the temp in the Deep setup reference only the GPU temp, only CPU temp, or adjust fans for each based on the curves we set up???

    I initially thought is was both, now am thinking it is only GPU so, to further cool my CPU, I had to set it based on where my GPU temps typically are, on typical games, when my CPU is hotter and needs higher fan speeds. Like many of you, I am struggling with CPU temps being a bit too high for my liking tho probably still acceptable (consistently upper 80s C, too often hitting low 90s C for brief periods). GPU temps are almost always very low by comparison, across all games (W3, DS3, AC Odyssy, Rise Tomb Raider...) Undervolted CPU with TS to about -0.15v then reduced to -0.14v after encountering a few crashes (not often).

    Also, I keep setting charging policy to Quality but it never stays there. Others finding this resetting at each boot? Thought Quality setting would help battery longevity over years (til it quits taking a charge eventually) but maybe makes no difference?

    This forum and members' posts are incredibly helpful, thank you all,

    Should be able to support a 250W PSU just fine. Did you order one from Gigabyte?

    Anyone have this issue or have thoughts on a solution? Technically X7 DT V7.

    Latest drivers and bios, fresh install of Windows 10. Start > Shutdown, the computer starts shutting down, the screen is black. Bluetooth, Wireless, and Power(Lightbulb) lights are still on and main power button. The only way to fully turn off is to hold the power button for 4 seconds. I've never received a notification that Windows was shut down improperly doing this. It's super annoying.

    Also booting up takes about 1.5 minutes. 87 seconds listed in Task Manger / Startup. Samsung 960 Pro 2TB nvme gen 4.

    Thanks for the help Everyone!

    Hello X7 DT V8 owners!

    I was wondering if anyone knew of a way to use the command and control software without Intel XTU. I prefer ThrottleStop and I've heard that it's not good to have both TS and XTU running or even installed (is this true?). However, if I uninstall XTU then command and control starts acting up, like the GUI won't appear (but the fn keys work?) and things like the fan control "deep control" feature starts acting wonky...I don't know. If I remove command and control then I can't use my fn keys for brightness, volume, etc. Can I just disable the intel xtu service without it affecting custom settings on command and control, and is it ok to use Throttlestop like that? I love this laptop but i gotta say the software they install on it is kind of janky.

    Any help would be appreciated, thanks!

    Hey CptCorn, I think your problem is "fast startup" go to your power profile screen, click on "choose what power button does" then click "change settings that are currently unavailable". Under the shutdown settings section at the bottom u can now untick fast start up. that should stop your "lights on nobodies home" scenario lol

    Hi F3n1c3, I just seen your sig and noticed u used conductonaut on your cpu and gpu, I was wondering how did it go and hows it been since u did it? Any problems with leakage etc or did u use some conformal coating etc? Also u mention thermal pads, was that just for stuff that already had a pad or did you replace the paste on the mem chips with pads?

    Recently did a repaste on my own x7 dt v8 with kryonaut and not 100% happy with temps even after undervolting cpu and gpu. But interested to hear about your setup and whether its worth the risk with liquid metal.

    Hi, the thermal paste and pads were installed by HID Evolution where I bought the laptop so I really don't have a frame of reference for how well they work. I don't really have issues with overheating except for some thermal throttling when overclocking and using intensive software. I had heard good things about HID Evolution and the upgrades so I figured why not.

    Shame :( was hoping to pick your brain lol
    If anyone has their unit still and its liquid metal and thermal padded if you could post pics of the pads etc when u have it open again that would be great :) Ive tried repasting with TG kryonaut and using undervolting on the cpu and gpu I just cant seem to stop the cpu hitting around 90 under load. Now XTU shows thermal throttling kicks in but doesnt drop the cpu it stays at 4Ghz. The gpu im very happy with.
