    Still slightly unsure. Should we run the script after the new update or is the issue resolved?

    Microstuttering and latency issues are mostly caused by Optimus. The new update is said to be more Optimus-friendly, meaning the GPU switching back and forth will no longer cause microstutters as massive as it used to be in the previous Win10 version. EmptyProject basically kept the dGPU awake all the time, rendering Optimus switching void, but affected the battery life by a big margin. Right now, Optimus microstutter is still there, but is rarely present. You can still run EmptyProject and totally eliminate it, but I'd rather have a better battery life with minimal stutter, than a 100% snappy system with few less hours.

    I'm about to pull the trigger on ordering an Aero 14, and on GenTech's site I am trying to decide between the IC Diamond on CPU/GPU or Coollaboratory Liquid Ultra on CPU/GPU. Any insights on which is better and why? The second Coollaboratry option is more expensive, and I was hoping someone could share some feedback/understanding on what makes it a better solution.

    Thanks for all the shared information and experience on here. I've been researching options for ages and feel confident on picking one of these up.

    I had to make the same decision. Decided to go w ic diamond. In the future it will be easier to clean off. And as I understand it should last longer.

    With that said ic doesn't cool quite as well. It's still good though.

    Lu is corrosive and conductive. So there is more risk. Plus some people claim it hardens.

    Did someone install Linux on their 7700hq version laptop? Is it possible to partition the boot drive without reinstalling Windows?
    Is graphics driver stuff working, like screen brightness, bumblebee/optimus?

    I recently installed Ubuntu on an Alienware laptop, and I had to change some things in the bios to make it recognize the internal drive, and to disable secure boot. I wonder if I have to do similar things with this laptop.

    Hey @Philosobyte did you ever get around to measuring the thermal pad thickness?

    Smart Update, then Smart Manager and Macro Hub. Of course all the driver/windows updates.

    Double check driver versions before you install the gigabyte ones. In mont cases the windows update drivers seem to be newer versions.
