    Good to know this really. Lol. I can't get into the sink. I'm trying and trying. For 10 mins now. Screws 1, 6 and 7 just won't turn. I don't know what else to do right now

    Hello brother. I see you run into some troubles. Try the rubber band hack. As well there is many guides on the web. You can even buy tools intended for removing stuck screws.

    Still stuck... Take with you your pc to a small Pc repair shop near you. I'm sure they can help remove theose screws. And you will probably need new screws if they are damaged.

    Probably too damaged. I don't have a flat rubber band also. I'm close to giving up. Lol.

    I did swap out the 16GB 2666 RAM 1.20V that came with the new computer for the 1.35V 32GB ones from my old computer. Do you think this may have caused a problem? Probably not, but I had to ask lol.

    I thought the 32GB ones would run at 2800MHz but i think they only ran at 2400MHz.

    Good advice. You'll need to get some flat rubber bands. That usually does the trick. And, get some new screws.

    You posted right as I did (before showing the damage) and I edited my post before you refreshed the page, LOL. Try something else if you cannot find a flat rubber band. Like a piece of electrical tape or even a piece of computer paper or post-it note... anything that might help the tip of the screwdriver to grab the head of the screw tighter.

    I recommend replacing the stock screws with stainless steel pan head screws. They are harder metal, have a larger head, and are much less likely to strip. I don't know why all laptops have such terrible quality screws. The manufacturers probably save $1 per laptop by using the crappiest soft metal screws that they can find.

    Hello guys, since i can't get into my sink at this time, How do I set my computer so the CPU doesn't run at MAX. To reduce temps. For now. Underclock? Or what? Kindly add screenshots if you can. Makes it easier for me to understand.

    Pict from your old post. Don't use XTU. Only ThrottleStop. You can reduce power consumption with Power limits market yellow. This way the Cpu will run max clocks within the added power budget. If 40W works for lets say 85C on Cpu, then put both 40. Check max power consumtion vs. cpu temp in TS. Or use Hwinfo for monitoring.

    I set both to 45 - 45 a few hours ago when my computer showed BSOD and I thought i had killed the CPU lol. So what are you suggesting? Leave the 90 and change the 45 to 40?

    90 on short max boost is maybe too much. It will run 90w until it kicks down to 45W. Try 40 on both and see how it works. Still headroom, then increase. Opposite if you still have problems.
