    Thanks. I've renamed "emptyproject11.exe" so it doesn't load. Not seen any issues with stuttering. I guess the battery indicator problem has been fixed as it doesn't cause a pause for me.

    It seems to be fixed in the latest insider build, so hopefully after the Creator´s Update in April, emptyproject won´t be needed anymore to remove the microstuttering.

    How did the repaste go?
    Did you manually distribute the thermal paste on CPU and vRAM or just let the heatsink pressure squeeze it all over? too less paste and too much paste are both bad :D

    Oh, and in your first repaste, you didn't remove the viscous paste from the vRam and left them blank, right? Just put the heat sink back on with the old paste?

    Hey,

    I'm sorry that I just disappeared like that. I haven't actually repasted yet becauase I underestimated school and got whammed by . The new plan is to repaste as soon as I get home for spring break on March 12th.

    It would be a really bad idea to leave the vram blank. I did remove the viscous paste, but I also dabbed on a large amount of Kryonaut.
    It's true that too little paste and too much paste are both bad. However, 1. a test done by Linustechtips show that too much paste doesn't make a tangible difference on desktops () and 2. pro repasters like iunlock have stated that laptops perform optimally with a bit more paste than would be optimal on a desktop. Therefore, during my repaste, I erred on the side of too much rather than too little.

    I did not manually spread the paste because manual spreading increases the chance of uneven distribution and air bubbles. Natural heatsink pressure will make for the best distribution (unless you're using liquid metal, which we always manual spread).

    By the way, I got a Firestrike score of ~10300 on this current repaste, where I haven't replaced the thermal pads and the vram still has Kryonaut.

    It has done it since I first got it including twice during the initial Windows setup the first time I powered it on. I have updated all drivers and the firmware and still had the same problem so Gigabyte says send it in.

    Hey guys. I received my Aero 14 v7 on friday and I was spending the whole weekend setting it up and removing unneeded stuff. I am extremely happy with the build quality. It is much better than I imagined. My screen has no noticeable backlight bleed and not a single dead pixel. I also received a NVME SSD with 2000+ mb/s reads.
    My 7700hq is rock-stable with a 0,150 undervolt and stays extremely cool for a laptop cpu, with no thermal throttling at all.
    The windows 10 battery prediction was till 90% at 11,5 hours with surfing and watching netflix, after that it was at 9,5 but I havent had the time yet to test a full battery cycle. BTW I replaced the emptyproject11.exe with dllhost.exe and Im using some other tweaks like the UV I mentioned before.

    Now that I have everything set up I noticed some things and I do have some questions for you guys.
    1. If the keyboard backlight is set to auto, on a fresh start in a dark room, the laptop boots with turned on backlight and as soon as the Smart Center is loaded the backlight turns off until light conditions change or you manually reenable auto-backlight. Is there a way to let autostart load a file which solves this issue? Have you guys experienced the same thing?
    2. How do I check the battery load with the laptop shut down? I tried pressing the right mouspad click near the battery icon but it wont show.
    3. I was able to remove the ugly Smart Center OSD by replacing the osd.exe also with dllhost.exe but I cant force the Smart Center to start after replacing that exe. I tried a bootup task and placing exes from the smart installation folder in autostart folder from windows but nothing worked. I want to keep using Smart Center because of the fan and other tweaks but without the ugly OSD.
    Edit: Just to clear this up. Manually starting the Smart Center does still work. It takes a bit longer though because I think it is trying to start the OSD, but when its up there is no OSD and everything works.

    Thanks in advance for any help. And if you guys have any questions please feel free to ask ;-)

    Just out of curiousity, when you guys have the laptop unplugged in, have the laptop either powered off/sleep/hibernating, and right click on the touchpad. Do you get your light indicator for Bluetooth,wireless, cpu usage, charging, power, light up?
    Supposedly, this is suppose to be a battery life indicator in which the number of lights indicate the amount of battery you have with increment of 20% per light.
    It is in the Aero 14 manual but my laptop does not work. :( Black screen fixed tho following another user's suggestion with XTU.

    Thanks guys

    I can verify that it works here. Very cool feature that I never knew existed. They light up in sequence and then turn off after a second.
