    With regards to the differences in the individual core temps - is the laptop running on stock thermal paste? If so it could be the result of an average paste job.

    It may be worth doing a full repaste with something like Thermal Grizzly Kyronaut, not only will your temps be slightly lower but the differences between each core should then it be up to 5c max.

    Yeah , I saw your post on the difference in PROCHOT between the old and the new BIOS. I saw a spike of 91C on only one core , that too for a second during my Prime95 undervolt stability test . The room temperature was around 28C by that time. Yes , with the bios update the PROCHOT is now 90 which is more sensible . I wonder why the old bios has been set to 97C which is really close to the tjmax.
    I am curious on what pushed the CPU to 95C with a -116mV? What were you running at that time ? So that I could run the same and test it out
    Also , Please share the regs .

    I have not updated my BIOS. Am I missing out on any improvements?

    Agree about the 1080p screen being a better choice.

    I was on Prime95 v28.1 small FFTs stress test, 8 threads. Fans @ 100%. Also, I changed my PL1 to 58w as I noticed that it was TDP throttling - clocks were not holding at 3.4GHz. If I am not wrong, that was what I noticed in your prime95 tests.


    WRT to the Elan trackpad, here is the file: http://www.datafilehost.com/d/334e9a57

    PLEASE PLEASE read the Readme.txt, and backup the respective registry branches before using them!

    If you encounter any problem and did not backup, just reinstall the drivers and all will be well.

    P.S. do you want the AHK script as well?

    Yup, stock. I havent opened it up yet, waiting for @iunlock Aero 15 review

    @iambalaji, have you repasted yours? Could you share your experience and any pictures?

    @leader288 , Hey , thanks for the SmartManager link and the Registry files .

    I ran Prime95 for 10 mins, small FFTs stress test, 8 threads , fans automatically controlled based on the temperature . With a -120mv core/cache and -100mV on graphics the max temp on one of the core was 82C , the cpu was able to hold onto 3.4Ghz all along except at one occasion where it dipped to 3.1Ghz , I guess this happened due to the delayed response of the fan to kick in at full speed. No PL or TDP throttling . Haven't you tried undervolting it ?

    No , I haven't repasted it yet. As I am in India , I have to import the liquid metal TIMs and also waiting for iunlock's Aero15 results and planning to keep it as a guide to do it on mine.

    Is it possible to configure function keys to behave as what is printed below the "f" numbers normally, and as f-keys when the fn-button is held?
    Haven't found anything in the BIOS, mobility center, or otherwise.
