    My 7588 has very impressive temps under full load.

    a Cinebench benchmark while running Tessmark nets around 70c GPU temps (running at 1680mhz) and the CPU at 85c running at 3.6-7Ghz. Reviews claimed the fans were loud but they are not at all. They ramp up and down quickly and in a smooth manner and within a matter of 5 seconds of no load temps are back in the 40s and fans are off. I prefer that


    Anybody have any questions

    My CPU throttles to .8 GHz, after undervolting and removing the battery and plugging it back, it reaches to 1.45Ghz max but still not anywhere close to what it should be.
    I have seen multiple post regarding this issue, this G7 is completely unusable when on battery for me. Any fix?

    Ok guys, been awhile since I’ve been here - been awhile since I owned a notebook. So I received my White G7 the beginning of this week. The first thing I noticed was this shreak of the plastic when opening the screen. Like cheap plastic flexing sounds. I scrutinized it and it seemed to be coming from where the bezels meet or attach to the LCD.

    So I called Dell for a replacement, and it did the same thing - also it had a ticking fan, so I sent that one back. I kept the original BUT I just want to hear from some of you guys if this squeaking and plastic bend sound is normal? Makes me want to return it and wait for the Alienware m15.

    Warning.

    I occasionally browse r/dell, some people report that with the 1.4/1.4.1/1.5 version of the Bios for the Dells G5/7, fan control has been "tuned" for the laptop to be more silent. The result is temperatures upwards of 90C even on lighter loads and undervolted CPUs. It appears that the Bios cannot be rolled back and manual fan control has been disabled.

    I haven't tried to confirm the news, but if you feel cautious, DO NOT UPGRADE.

    Hi all,

    I'm asking dell to add in next BIOS release for all G-Series laptops (G3/G5/G7) the same thermal management system as XPS line with several cooling and processor performance options, this might help us to keep better control of thermals and fan operation (Cool, Quiet, Balanced and High Performance) as there is no way as it is to control it, I updated my G3 to bios 1.4.0 and fans were crazy, had to come back to 1.3.0 to get it working properly.

    If you support this idea, please leave your Kudos/Likes there to show them that there are more people interested, the more people we get involved better our odds to make it happen! (it takes around 1-2 minutes to make the registration and like the link below).

    Ok after the clean WIN install my G7 now works much better. Without DELL provided bloatware it runs much faster! I've replaced my 128GB m.2 SSD to 512GB - now all soft and files can be there, no slow HDD needed anymore :)
    But what is the deal with running on battery? It slows so much when unplugged. How can I get the same performance on battery as plugged? In advanced power settings all the same for On battery and Plugged in...

    Has anyone tried installing an m.2 SATA SSD with a capacity higher than 256 GB? The manual says it only supports 128 GB m.2 SATA SSDs.

    There is no size limit, I doubt the manual would say 128GB max as there are SKUs of this model sold with 256GB & 512GB SSDs.
    You can install as big an SSD as you can find.
