    This is how I lowered temperature (from most effective to least effective):

    (1) cpu undervolt
    (2) gpu undervolt
    (3) change thermal paste (I prefer Arctic mx-4 because longevity and it's cheap and easy/safe)

    If your laptop has large intake air vent holes, then consider a laptop cooler.
    My Pavilion laptop has tiny air intake vent holes, and sadly, there was no temperature change with a laptop cooler.
    Be sure not to block/restrict the air intake vents and exhaust vents.

    Hey Heretofore. I have a issue where my laptop will limit clock speeds to base of 2.8Ghz and not turbo boost. When I open up HWINFO it shows power limiting PL2 as YES and PL2 ring as YES. This happens every 10 days or so and not all the time. Its intermittent mostly so I can't imagine it to be hardware fault, what do you think? I have the latest BIOS flashed and I undervolted CPU with Throttlestop. PL2 shows in red/yellow under limits in Throttlestop as well. Any ideas or is it just a Motherboard bad design or bug and that all the Motherboards of my part no. Will all be effected? Thanks

    intel cpu after 4th generation (haswell) will throttle when in power saving mode or whenever it s not plugged in. this incluses kaby lake

    ALSO TRY UNDERVOLT BY -110.

    this will stablize the frequency of your processor at or above 3.0 without having to make a sacrifice of temprature.

    There’s a lot of ways to skin a cat.
    Easiest would be to grab a sharp flat head screwdriver and tap a new groove with the help of a hammer.

    But that may be too fragile for that. Try first to clean the area with alcohol and place a flat elastic band on the screw. Then use a philips over it. The rubber helps it grab.

    Last resort, get a thin dremel disk and sand a new groove into the screw head. Careful not to go thru it.
    And try to cover everything else with paper and tape to make sure no metal shards get anywhere near the motherboard.

    Hello guys:

    I recently purchased an HP Omen 17t with i7 8750h GTX 1060 128GB NVMe SSD/1TB HDD and 144hz 1080p display. I ordered a 512GB M.2 SSD to upgrade from the 128GB version and I wanted to know the best method to go about reinstalling Windows on a new drive.

    The Omen does not come with Windows installation media, however I did see that there was a recovery drive already on the computer. I didn't want to clone the drive because I feel like a number of issues from my previous laptop came with cloning my drives. I do have a USB for Windows 10 installation but it was made about a year or so ago and wouldn't have the drivers/software specific to the Omen.

    Essentially, what would be the best way of reinstalling Windows onto a new NVMe SSD for this laptop?

    depending on what brand you bought, it may have come with a free/included version of acronis or some other migration software.
    samsung,
    PNY,
    western digital

    these all come with either in house software or a digital copy of acronis.

    assuming you got a samsung or one of the ones i mentioned here you simply,
    1. install your new nvme into the m.2 slot. DO NOT REMOVE THE GUMMY THERMAL PAD!!!! this is for cooling your drive.
    2. boot the computer to windows.
    3. aquire your free copy of migration software.
    4.in windows, use disk management to initialize the new m.2 drive (some migration software will not see the nvme before you initialize/format the drive)
    5. install and complete the process for mirroring/cloning your drive.
    6. the computer will restart and finnish the clone and either shut down or prompt to shut down. do this.
    7. before turning on the pc again. remove the old(source) drive with its connectors unless you have somethething to replace it with.

    8. have a drink, tip your hat.

    welcome to the omen cool kids club by the way.

    So a few things:

    1: the OS is installed on the SSD. How would I boot into Windows if the SSD with the OS isn’t on the new SSD.

    2. The SSD that I purchased was none of the above. It was this one: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B075Y23Y37/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o00_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1
