    Well that's one solution, though I hope the buyer knew that the machine had an issue.

    Hi, had same issue. If you go to settings there is an option for power saving. Click open the option and establish new selection. Make sure you save changes. Your computer should now be whisper quiet.

    Well the computer went broke after the person bought it from me.

    It seemed to be the gpu that broke. I made a thread about it somewhere on this forum but cant refind it.

    Something mentioned about baking the gpu but i cant find the thread about how to do it.

    Thanks !

    This is what i have done:

    - Clean installation of windows 8.1. Allso tryed the harddrive in another computer.
    - Baked the gpu in the oven. 200c for about 12 minutes. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0vf6...m3MsOQ&index=1
    After i baked the gpu windows worked fine for a few minutes. But then screen just went blue,
    - Ran windows 8 memory test. I do not know the result because it just sent me to a black screen after test was done.
    - Ran startup repair. I do not know the result because it just sent me to a black screen after test was done.
    - Checked so that the fans and temps are ok.
    - I have allso started windows i failsafe mode and it works just fine. Picture good and all in that mode.

    What i have not done:

    - I have not baked the motherboard.
    - I have not tryed to use an external screen. I do not have an external screen. And i guess theres no problem with the screen as i dont get bad screen in failsafe mode.
    - I have not flashed the bios or vbios at this time. Alltho ive done that about 6 months ago.
    - I have not stresstested the cpu. Is that a way of doing that thru usb/cd ?

    I got a P150HM, I'm not sure how it compares to the P170HM, but your temps seem really good compared to my idle ones.

    I wonder how much a repaste would help?!

    The 170 series has a better cpu block (copper vs aluminium) and idle temperatures will depend a lot on ambient temps, how clean the heatsink is, what chips are in the machines etc.

    I have good news I share unofficial EC firmware for everybody to our CLEVO P170HM, it's resolving loud fans problem.
    I don't take any responsibility if you brick your machine by flashing with this EC firmware

    With this new EC frmware 1.00.09c-TEST and it's working very good, try it.
    Right now my P170HM is much more quiter than before.
