    I sent mine back. I dont know if I should order another or get another model. When inspecting the laptop more there were many more scratches. There were also scratches and glu residue on the plastic below the screen.

    It is annoying you've got such a bad model. Is it a demo or otherwise.? I keep my, I can not find the same laptop with 1TB PCIe SSD and gtx 1070 and a 6820HK cpu and 75Hz display IPS for the same money besides me to give more. Bought it on offer for. Best purchase.

    How do you get 75Hz? My Y910 has just only a 60Hz-IPS Panel :(. €dit: I installed the latest 378.92WHQL NV-Driver and I also have 75Hz and Gsync. Very Nice.

    By the way I bought the Ideapad last week. My Pros and Cons are:

    + Overclocks well with XTU (4.3G are possible on all cores)
    + The 1070 also have a lot of OC-potential and it has Samsung Ram on the PCB
    + In my opinion the fans are not too noisy escpecially in comparesion with a Clevo or an Acer NB.
    + Outstanding Gaming-Performance
    + Good Software-Support with regular Bios-Updates
    + A lot of Highend-Hardware for less Money.
    + Well processed
    + mechanical Keyboard
    + 75Hz-IPS Panel and the Display has Gsync-Support


    - strange keyboard-layout
    - Just only a 230W-PSU
    - less possibilities to extend

    @ALL with a Lenovo Ideapad Y-910

    You think 75Hz refreshrate is not enough? You can edit the refreshrate via CRU (custom Resolution ultility) up to 100Hz (which seems to be the Limit).

    Instructions:

    - Download CRU
    - unzip and open the file as an admin
    - click the existing Profile with 75Hz and klick edit
    - Change the 75Hz refreshrate to 100 Hz and press okay

    - restart the machine


    and you´ll get

    You think your Y910 is too noisy, but you don´t want to loose Performance?

    at the first you´ll have to disable all Options of the Nerve Center.
    Then you´ll have to download Intel XTU and edit the Profile:

    You can compare your result of Cinebench with this one - benched with the Settings shown above:

    You want to max out the graphic Performance of the 1070?
    - Download MSI Afterburner
    - Install the file
    - open the program
    - press STRG+f
    - edit the curve
    - ensure the the min Limit is not over 1.75G and the max. Limit is not over 1.95G (the max. Limit is reached at 1.05V - the clocks above are petty)

    Anyone knows if a M.2 Sata III SSD would work on the Y910? In my country, this model ships only with an HDD and I would rather buy a cheaper M.2 Sata III SSD than a M.2 NVMe SSD.

    I've read on one of the Polish forums that not-using turbo and OCing processor instead makes GPU performance "limited" is that true?

    Hello all,
    So I recently bought this notebook. SO far I'm satisfied with it, looks sturdy, well build and performance is great. However I'm finding the CPU temperatures a bit too high, stock can get up to 90+ degree, but when I try to overclock and even under volt the temperatures rocket up to 95 and more. This is mostly in Battlefield 1 multiplayer which i find in mi experience the most demanding game for stressing CPU and GPU together.
    What temperatures are you guys getting stock on CPU or overclocked ?

    Thanks

    Hi - is that still the case ?
    Does anybody else has these temperatures without the laptop being under high stress ?
