    Ty!
    Yea I’m pretty amazed with this machine, and definitely lucked out on both CPU & GPU.
    I’ve shuntmodded my Razer’s and desktop GPU’s before, but don’t think I’ll be doing that this time.. quite content with 14k+ GPU score!

    In my situation the performance benefits of the Legion 7 are what are motivating me to keep it over the L5P/ the up to 10% improvement of the 3080 at higher resolutions is significant. If they had made a 3080 L5P I think my problems would be solved, but the panel is still the largest hurdle. If I could solve that my decision would be made. To my knowledge no one has yet disassembled a screen on one of these machines, so I am not sure how they are retained in the housing either adhesive tape or screws and brackets, or the orientation of the snaps that would hold the lid together, or whether the panel could be removed without disassembling the hinge assembly (depends on if the connector is permanently attached to the back of the screen). Lots of unknowns to be the guinea pig of several thousand dollar units.

    I agree. At this point there's little benefit to shunt modding except for bragging rights on the leaderboards. Unlike the Max-Q GPUs there's little to be gained by increasing the wattage to 200W. We would most likely be looking at a <5% gain, if even that.

    Okay I see. I would not try to change the screens, there is so much that could go wrong in my opinion, but if you do I wish you the best of luck with it! I

    If its the same as last year models, all you need to do is to remove the screen bezel starting from the webcam area then work your way down removing the adhesive tape. After that the panel is being held by more adhesive tape on the corners but for your case its not worth the risk and you'll void your warranty when you change the panel. I think the Legion 5 Pro and Legion 7 uses the same exact QHD+ 500nits panel.

    Can you recharge the Legion 5 (2021) via USB-C 3.2 Power Delivery port?

    Your answer lies in your question. If it's PD then yes, absolutely.

    Is there a way to overclock the 3070 in the Legion 5 pro with 5800H? I'm using Afterburner, but the profile never sticks. Also, it only displays GPU temps while I'm gaming, nothing else. How can I fix that?

    Just posting this here for posterity.

    Got my L7 (5900hx / 3080) a week or so ago. Right speaker was stuffed out of the box, keeps randomly going to near zero volume for minutes/hours at a time and then going back to normal for a bit. Rinse and repeat. Checked all drivers, balances etc. No issue with headphones only the external speaker.

    I bought the four years ultimate warranty (on site repair) so they’re ordering a new speaker to replace it with. No idea when it will arrive, but safer than getting a replacement laptop (which I was offered but no ETA on availability and I don’t want to be without a laptop for months).
