    Run HWininfo64 in the background and get an overdose of system information. LOL

    You can run hwinifo64 automatically during system start and then let it run in the background all the time. You'll not miss a single info about your system's performance then.

    Oh, another thing, you can use MSI Afterburner and RTSS to show you all the info in-game while playing.

    Follow this guide:

    You can also import sensor information from HWiNFO64 and AIDA64 to MSI Afterburner and throw it to the OSD with RTSS.

    The "update date" from their drivers page is BS. You have to look for the "release date", in this case it's 29th May, so it's the same old file.

    CPU hit 92-94 degrees Celsius a few times, gpu was 74. Rage 2

    I don’t know how to check vbios version and I haven’t booted into the bios yet to see its version. Tonight I’ll play Witcher and doom 2016.

    Thanks. That sucks then. This laptop can't definitely do that setup.

    Anyone tried the new BIOS to see if it throttles the GPU?
