    Thanks for the responses guys. I was dreading these issues, but thankfully, I reset the laptop using windows reset and everything seems to be working. I did get a new charging cable. But it was a software issue. It is possible that the windows 10 creators update.

    Much happier with the machine up and running. The only issue now is the fan speed on the laptop. NBFC seems to have no effect. The CPU has turbo disabled through throttletop (nothing over 2.8 ghz), although still cannot set multiplier manually, has no effect when turned on.

    On the other hand, using MSI Afterburner, gpu clock speed and vRAM are set to 300 (lowest it can go) and around 39c, but the fans still kick in after every few minutes. Extremely annoying in a silent room.

    Hey! I bought mine from the US but using it in China as well. You got it only slightly expensive but still a good price compared to what I've seen. I was happy till they crippled steam community here. Deeply annoying. Any suggestions for ping? I get horrendous lag in some games with low player counts here (rts titles)

    Random aside, but I've found the 120Hz panel in my Omen will overclock to 128Hz.
    Testufo and testufo frameskipping test seem to verify it does actually run 128 approx a second, and WoW seems to lock around 127.7 FPS if Vsync engages. Not sure if it breaks Gsync at all. Not massive boost, but certainly a nice additional note.

    130/144 unfortunately not useable, and just garble :)
