    I'm just not sure if the ambient could take so much effect on the gpu thermal.
    82c in balanced fan profile
    85c in max fan profile
    that's a huge difference

    17 degrees in temperature going trough the system is also huge, hence why many overclockers have AC units to cool the air going trough it.

    maybe someone could do some experiments on the ambient temp vs laptop cooling performance lol

    my ambient temps are around 22-24 degree. Today a bit more due to high temps outside.

    I think it's my ambient temps being too high as well. I will try Captain's settings and report back soon.

    Edit: Tried his 1850 at .85V and Heaven crashed in 5 secs. LOL

    For 1800 MHz, you don't need that high voltage. I run my gpu at 1950 MHz at less than that (937 mV). You can safely drop it even further. A good estimate is to start with the stock clock curve and cap it at the required speed and then gradually push it down one notch at a time while running heaven in the background in windowed mode until you get a crash. Then bump it up a couple of notches.

    Try a value between 1800 and 1850 MHz

    No need for disappointment. Desktop systems have similar issues with same setup. Only major difference is coolling solutions which, as a notebook user, is a trade-off. You get the portability and have to play the micromanagement game until you find the right settings for each situation.

    I have Metro Exodus installed and may attempt at higher clock settings to see what I can get while maintaining below 80C (my no-go for actual lap gaming). Will record ambient temps to help out.

    As for @Nomadsan74 for the 1.5.4 issue, just check several pages back for @Darkhan ‘s use case. I may try it later, but I gotta crunch those Division 2 hours today before Apparel event ends. I can try it later when that is over. (feel free to add LoneSyndal on UPlay if you are up for the grind...)
