    I've been using one of these for 2 days now and I also don't have any undervolting headroom at out of the box frequencies. Mine is clocked at 4.8 all core and it consumes 160+ watts until hitting PL1. Even -50mv undervolt would BSOD.

    However, I lowered the 8 core clock speed to 4.5ghz on all cores and I can now sustain a -75mv undervolt. I might go even lower since the cooling can stay extremely quiet up to about 80 watts and that should be good for about 4.0ghz * 8cores.

    You could try -10mV - -45mV range at top OC, every little bit helps. :)

    Keeping the daily driver speeds down is what I typically do too, it's only for testing / benchmarking that I push the limits to the maximum.

    Hi there, about to press the button on one of those bad boys.. but in my region i can only get the 1080p panel, not the 4k one. The issue is that besides gaming i wanted to do video editing and Unity programming, both enjoy higher dpis... not to mention the 4k panel is 100% adobe rgb vs the 100 srgb of the 1080p panel...

    As owners, what do you guys think of this dilemna? Will the machine have enough resell value for me to switch to a 4k panel when i head back in europe? Thanks!

    You have already one with 1080p display or you want to buy a used one?
    To my mind...6000$ is something crazy...no additional value.
    If you want to sell 1080p, you will lose a lot of money.

    Thanks @orgasmic - i don't have one yet, i'm planning to buy one, resell it in europe or the UAE and buy another one that's 4k. But after reading your message regarding resell value I've changed my mind and might just wait to buy a 4k one in europe, thank you!

    hey all
    i got mine a few days ago and i have a strange problem, since the beginning. it's like around two years ago, when win 10 had the problem with optimus and the nvidia gpu kept waking up every few seconds, leading to some kind of micro-freezing (but no in all apps) etc.
    i have this problem only in optimus mode. if i switch to dedicated gpu mode the gpu operates normally.
    also, if i use i.e. afterburner and set a fixed gpu clock, it just stays where i set it to. but, the system is not that stable in optimus mode, like it runs time spy without amy problems UNTIL tve run is over and the app leaves fullscreen and goes back to the desktop to show the result. then it sometimes freezes / crashes / laggs like heck.
    if i'm in dedicated gpu mode, absolutely flawless.
    i'ce already un / reainstalled both nvidia / intel drivers. i've testet different profiles within armoury crate (turbo, performance etc.), i've even reset the device to factory settings and then installed afterburner to check. it's always the same. also, in gpu-z i can see the behaviour.
    as the both gpus function normally (i also checked in optimus mode what happens when i deactived either of the two gpu..both run without problems) i don't think it's hardware failure, but i'm pretty clueless as of what else to try in the mean time ^^

    does anyone have an idea?

    i'd probably be better off posting this in an other , non-device-specific thread, since i guess not too many own a mothership and therefore probably not a lot of peepz will read this ;-)

    here's a video of how tve prob looks like in afterburner:



    cheers

    @_deadbydawn_ i don't own a mothership but AFAIK this is a regular optimus issues - cue reddit 'The issue is more with Nvidia Optimus. Because it switches between the iGPU and the dGPU to save power, it ends up bugging out and doing that during games. Gsync fixes this by making the iGPU more or less disabled and the dGPU being the only thing outputting video.'

    This may be a case where your monitoring tool is polling the GPU for an update which causes it to wake up and cause a stutter.

    For what its worth, this happens with eGPUs as well. Afterburner has usually caused it for me, but if you start HWINFO in sensor only mode when the dGPU is off, it should not cause it to wake up.

    thanks for the input guys :)
    sorry for the late reply, i've been away for a few days.
    yah, that's exactly what happens, i found out as well in the mean time. asus gpu tweak ii does it as well, so does gpu-z with its sensor view. the problem why i want to use afterburner is because i want to undervolt the gpu and didn't find another solution yet.
