    fair enough haha.

    damn need to find an 8750h owner to see if temps are controllable or if i should just buy the 7700hq version of the GE63

    From what I've read, the thermals ARE better than the 7 series chip by virtue of evolution etc, but are as controllable via undervolting etc. In short you should run the same or cooler @ stock and with tweaking, much better.

    Screenshot below is as I am wrtiting this lol.

    those temps look good. would undervolting mean i'd get even lower clocks than the reviews? (they say it throttles from 3.9 to about 3.1)



    i have to deal with Visual Studio, project, excel, and visio in school

    and i want to get into premiere, lightroom, and photoshop.

    my concern was let say im rendering something (probably nothing huge at first) would the 8750h throttling to 3.1 Ghz hurt

    No undervolting means you get the same clocks with less volts, less volts means less powe r and less heat. Less heat is less throttling and potentially higher base clock.

    Underclocking = lowering clocks.

    You'll note from my picture my 7700 is at 3.5Ghz... non turbo it is a 2.8 Ghz chip..

    got it, never rly played with my cpu's before.

    3.1 on 6 cores is still better than 3.5 on 4 cores for work right?

    More cores is normally better. As long clock speed aint totally crippled. But still not 3.5 on all 4 cores:D https://en.wikichip.org/wiki/intel/core_i7/i7-7700hq

    Yes but Throttle stop let's me change that up to 3.8Ghz.

    I have it set for 3.6GHz and it boosts to 3.5 reliably under load.
