    Abysmal XtU score of 670 marks.
    Yet it does okay in other CPU only benchmarks.

    I notice problems in games too. FPS not being as high as it should, in addition to dropping randomly.

    As it stands, I'm returning it unless a bios mod can fix it. I only have a few days, ahh the pressure.

    Download and try Throttlestop instead of this Bloat. Max all limits and under volt your processor. Delete the OC profile in XTU and don't run XTU in Win startup. Eneble XTU only for benchmark tests.

    some bios don't play nice with throttlestop, like my G752VS


    only xtu or rog cancer center to change PL1/PL2 and that's still hard limited to 75/85w!

    Not sure if this will help, but thought I'd mention it just in case

    I'm not using the new P670, (will be testing one on Tuesday) but have been testing the new P775DM3-G both with the 1060 and 1070, and found that the control panel that ships with them causes me a lot of problems with regards to fan speeds and weird CPU clocking issues. It was reporting my CPU as running way hotter than it actually is (around 91C at 45% load) fan speeds and temps were all over the place even when it was just idling and under-clocking it after about a minute when encoding even when it wasn't reporting a high temperature. I removed the Control panel and put on the one from my older P771DM-G (Control Center 5.0001.0.50) which removed the overclocking options on the taskbar, but has made this new model run at about the same loudness as the P771 and I can encode using full CPU and it stays around 3.96 to 4Ghz at 100% no matter how long I leave it encoding.

    As my boss has taken home the P670 we got in and was initially reporting the same kind of weird fan issues I suggested he puts on the older Control panel. So I should know by Tuesday if it fixed it for him when he gets back from IBC

    Please check your CPU multipliers during GPU usage. I have no problems with the CPU during just CPU laden tasks.

    When I get the issues it's from a clean install of Windows with just the drivers on from the supplied disk. The Control centre that is supplied with the machine is what's causing the issue. It even reports the CPU wrongly as it puts the base speed of the CPU around 2.5Ghz, then says it's turbo is around 3.5Ghz and therefore I'm overclocking it at 4Ghz which I'm not as it's a 6700K. If I remove the new control panel and put on the older one everything works fine and is quiet.

    I've already checked all the multipliers and other settings, and this is happening on every P775DM3-G we've had in so far, so as my clients have no need of overclocking I'm putting on the older Control panel.

    I should probably mention this isn't my first time with Clevo laptops. I've been supplying them to video editors for well over 10 years so I'm used to having to mess around with them to get them working properly
