    Thank you so much for the write-up @hackness , I added another 40 minutes to my PCMark 8 - Work Battery Consumption score.

    Previous with Turboboost disabled, Max. Proc Stat 50%, EPP 255 I was getting 6h40m of battery life (WiFi ON, BT ON, Screen Brightness 0%, Volume 0%, no peripherals, KB Backlight OFF)

    Now with just some of the mods you suggested: CPU Flex Ratio Settings to 8. FIVR 16,16,12,12,8,8 TurboBoost on, “Processor performance core parking min cores” to 0%. (Same presets WiFi, BT, Brightness, etc.) I have added another 40 minutes to my battery benchmark (7h20m)

    *I used the following logic to calculate the total battery life, taking into account the MSI GS65 doesn't like to charge over 90%, and the benchmark runs the battery down to 20% (+/- 3%): Total Battery Life = Benchmark Duration/%Battery Consumed (This type of reasoning is obviously flawed because it assumes the workload and discharge rate is constant across percentages but it's the simplest method I found to guestimate total battery duration)
    **Also in Test 1 I started @ 100% battery, and in Test 2 (With the Hackness tweaks) I started the test off from 90%.

    Maybe tonight I'll try with the Intel (R) Speed Shift Technology in the BIOS settings changed, as well as the EPP registry settings.

    Well he isn't using an Anti-virus software.

    But I can't achieve that as well, even with the Anti-virus and other basic programs turned off.

    However, I have myself persuaded because of the fact that I have a 6 core CPU, that alone, maybe was one of the causes that made the outcome become like this.

    I also attempted closing most BG services and apps and could not replicate. Regardless, I was happy with my estimated battery life, now just have to test it with PCMark 8.

    Would you recommend I let it turbo boost? I figured it would be better on the battery to let it boost to 1.2 GHz briefly to load a program then drop to 800 Hz vs letting it take 30 seconds to load something with boost disabled.

    Yes, complete time shorter the better, but with full control at our hands, just like the Speedshift concept brought to us by Intel. :D

    TY
    Will look into this after I fix a few bugs in my GT75.
    I have NO Synaptic TP app. I have NO Windows TP settings. Among other issues.
    W110 is {Place Profanity Here} horrible, so many bugs and broken software.
    For the last 2 months since I got my notebook its been chasing one bug after another.
    Then yesterday, update v17763.1 I hoped would patch the touchpad problem .... NOPE....NO LOVE HERE.
    I miss W7, it was running sooo smoothly, everything worked.

    And Microshit released a press release stating 'There will never be another release of windows again' ... So how many Service Packs have been released for W10, and yes, this is what I'm choosing to call it this.
    It would seem to me that the term 'Service Pack' denotes a 'Patched' that has been broken....
