    Recently took delivery of my Razer Blade 15. Ordered from HIDevo and customized with the optional Thermal Grizzly Conductonaut on CPU + GPU, and Fujipoly Extreme Thermal Pads on heat sensitive surfaces. Everything else remains stock.

    I have a Sopiguard skin and a 2tb NVME coming in the next few days. Before I install those I would like to do some testing in its stock configuration. Its been a while since I did any benchmarks, what should I download for benchmarks and temp monitoring? I can post some numbers if any of you are interested. Thanks

    UPDATE

    My unit came undervolted -0.100 out of the box. The laptop
    is idling with the following temps with an ambient room temperature of 24C / 75F:

    CPU idle: 47c-48c
    GPU idle: 44c
    SSD idle: 36c


    Below benchmarks were done at default settings. Gaming Mode is OFF

    Time Spy Score: 6988
    Max CPU temp: 79c
    Max GPU temp: 70c
    Max SSD temp: 47c

    Fire Strike Score: 15646
    Max CPU temp: 82c
    Max GPU temp: 70c
    Max SSD temp: 47c


    Running the same benchmarks this time with Gaming Mode turned ON

    Time Spy Score: 7611
    Max CPU temp: 80c
    Max GPU temp: 71c
    Max SSD temp: 45c

    Fire Strike Score: 17619
    Max CPU temp: 80c
    Max GPU temp: 71c
    Max SSD temp: 46c


    Did some testing using Furmark

    Preset 1080 Benchmark Score: 6278
    Min FPS: 102
    Max FPS: 110
    Ave FPS: 105
    Max temp: 70c

    Ran for 15mins at 1920x1080 8X MSAA
    Min FPS: 41
    Max FPS: 46
    Ave FPS: 42
    Max temp: 70c

    Have decided to upgrade the default 500GB Samsung NVME to an Addlink 2TB NVME drive.

    Upon opening the bottom cover I was surprised to see the RAM slots were free from obstruction, unlike previous models where you have to remove a ribbon cable.

    For some unknown reason, I couldn't get to clone the default 500GB Samsung drive to my new 2TB Addlink drive. I have tried several cloning software like Macrium, Acronis and AOMEI but the cloned drive just won't boot to Windows. In the end, I just did a clean install of Windows 10.

    The Samsung drive will now go into a Plugable enclosure.

    Benchmark test of the Samsung drive:

    Although the Razer Blade 15 has an amazing build, I didn't like its fingerprint-prone finish. Installed a Sopiguard Honeycomb black skin (similar to dbrand's swarm skin). Installation was a pain and ended up with some bubbles.

    I went with Sopiguard because they offer a skin for the keyboard area which dbrand doesn't. For the keyboard area and trackpad I went with Matte Black which I managed to put on perfectly.

    Thanks for list. Will be downloading these.

    My RB15 came installed with Intel Extreme Tuning Utility. I guess this comes pre installed with every RB15?

    Since my laptop is still new and haven’t installed much on it yet, I want to create a backup thumb drive where in if anything goes wrong and I can restore the laptop back to it’s factory state. I assume this is where “Create a recovery drive” under Windows settings come into play?

    Some have suggested ThrottleStop is a better program than XTU for CPU power control. Though Apparently XTU has a read out that is nice to read. Take care not to make changes with both programs or you may have issues.

    Here is, imo, some good info regarding ThrottleStop



    Remember, this guide is not exact and some fiddling may be required to get the perfect settings.

    Thanks for sharing. Those temps arent bad. Id be interested in hearing how they change with an undervolt. How loud is the fan to you under load?

    According notebookcheck, on stock thermal paste max stress test Furmark and prime95 isn’t thermal throttle which is not bad at all.

    Update

    I have been using this machine for over a week already and have had 2 instances of BSOD. First was when installing Time Spy through Steam and the second one happened during the updating of the Razer Synapse software just 2 days ago. I’m not entirely sure what the BSOD means but I’m guessing that is software related?

    There are also instances when the fans would turn on to its max on a fresh boot. A restart wont fix the fans and the only way to put them back to normal speed is a proper shut down then power on. This happened twice already at random times. Hope this is also a software issue.

    If you have undervolt your Cpu. Then maybe you should decrease a few steps. BSOD is common if you have put higher undervolt than what the chips is able to handle. Aka it will be unstable.

    Hi bimmerboii, is it possible to set the laptop display refresh rate to 100, 120 or 144hz?
