    You can set a fps lock in games to improve batterylife.

    Also. How do I play HDR video on YouTube?
    I have HDR enabled in windows HDR settings.

    I don't see the HDR option in settings on YouTube anywhere.

    I just pulled the trigger and bought the Y740
    Intel 9750H
    RTX2060
    8 GB Ram because I want to upgrade it to 32 GB

    Are any of the ones you listed are a worthy upgrade ?

    Somone mentioned a samsung model with lower latencey here is the link https://www.newegg.com/p/0RM-002H-000S4


    Can anyone recommend me a good 32 GB RAM kit to install on my Y740?

    I was impressed by how well the quality is on the factory thermal paste job coming straight from the factory.

    However, do the Y540 / Y740 have something like on the MSI laptop, key combination to unlock advanced bios option to do tweaking like RAM Overclocking and more stuff?

    Not sure, but you can already do CPU and GPU tuning and "overclocking" without needing BIOS.

    That is just the basic tweaking, I was hoping for a way to tweak also the AC / DC loadline, the PROCHOT limit, and also Uncore offset for to successfully boot the laptop when RAM is OC'd to 3467Mhz like I did on my MSI GS65 laptop.

    SPEED. Always speed. Also higher speeds lead to lower true latency
