    Yep, 5.2.4 now shows up as the latest version on Smart Update.

    Also a heads up to anyone planning on updating their Smart Manager: These two versions (5.2.4 & 5.2.9) caused an odd bug where my laptop will show the "Shutting down" window, then the screen goes black, but the laptop won't shut down completely. (WiFi, Bluetooth, Battery and Power indicators always on), and I have to force (power button long press) the laptop to shut down.

    I uninstalled Smart Manager and the problem is gone.

    I think it is advised to rely on the Smart Manager version listed on the P34G V2's download page. No issue encountered so far with the 5.13 version.

    I'm not sure about that. The P34W v5 page for example shows Smart Manager v5.4.7 (here) which isn't listed in Smart Update for P34G v2 owners. So what shows in Smart Update on the P34G v2 is probably intended for us to use.

    I think they just broke something. But I'll download 5.13 anyway cuz I like the fan controls :)

    I emailed Gigabyte expressing my frustration with the locked BIOS limiting the GPU overclock potential. I got an email back saying they forwarded my email to the proper department. We'll see how hat happens.

    Aaaand it's a dead end.

    "Mr. Vince,


    Our notebooks do not have overclocking functions for the CPU or GPU in the BIOS. We do not support overclocking so you would need to experiment with third party software tools at you own risk. Thank you."

    I'm still on Windows 8.1. Did you (or anyone else) experience any other issues with going to Windows 10?

    No issues for me. I think it is safe to make the jump.

    I don't know if anyone has had this problem. Pretty sure my battery is swelling up. The case where the battery sits is bending and deforming, yesterday bottom left of the case opened. It's around 15 months old and it still has the 2 year global warranty. I'm calling Gigabyte support tomorrow to see what can I do, I'm located in Sydney. Anyone had experience with Gigabyte Australia? I'm not sure what's going to happen, and hopefully they help me.
