Yeah, never use the Optimal power setting in the NVIDIA control panel. It's rife with problems.
Ironically I am running High Performance and have Optimal Power set in NVIDIA control panel. Ill change both of those and see.
The RAM test through out the day did not complete. It was set to run a full single pass and was at 10% complete over about 10 hours. That doesnt seem right.
Laptop is still randomly freezing. It quit for awhile and then about 2 weeks ago I got a BSOD with a Synaptics driver error. Removing the Synaptics driver and let Windows 10 find it. No more issues with that.
Tonight out of the blue, the laptop froze twice within about 45 minutes of each other. Its never done it that close together. As usually nothing special in the logs except for Windows was shut down without a clean power down critical alerts.
I did find this however as an error which seems to indicate an issue with the Sager Control Center?

Clevo released an updated version of the control center software on April 1. Link and scroll down to Control Center AP 5.0001.1.21. Be patient as Clevo's servers are extremely slow.
Does it make a difference if I have a Sager branded laptop?
Sager is just a brand name for a laptop that uses a Clevo chassis. Just like how HIDevolution uses the EVOC name for its machines.

The only offset may be the firmware, and that's only if they've modified it in anyway. Otherwise it makes no difference.
Upgraded the control center. We will give it a few days/weeks to see what happens. I also upgraded to the latest Killer Networks driver for WLAN.
Also something to note. The temps I was reporting in the beginning of this thread are on a laptop cooler. Taking it off the cooler results in significantly higher temps around the 170* mark in a pretty low requirement game. Should I plan on repasting at this point or should I wait to see if my crashing issues are fixed with the latest control center upgrade?
I do have a heatsink cleaning kit (Articlean) and a tube of Kryonaut to repaste with.
Crashing still happening. Its pretty weird. The screen on the laptop goes black. My second monitor stays lite. I can still talk in Teamspeak, but all input ceases and the only way to get it back is to hard power it down.
Also looks like this download was removed.
