    Found some strange shutdown issues, it will freeze during shutdown but the keyboard stays on, screen just black. Usually this happens when running blender and unity, especially if there are two instances up. It seems that it just gets confused or something. Anyone found something similar?
    After a hard power button reset all is fine and normal again. I do put it to sleep sometimes, but that does not seem to be a consistent trigger.

    Is this just windows being a d&@¥/?

    Check your Nvidia control panel settings. I think you might have the power management setting on max performance. I'm not at my laptop right now so not 100% on the setting name.

    Change it to adaptive and it should downclock when idle, in turn running it cooler.

    Wish I could find one for a good cost now - just cursory checks those suckers are going for like $1000-$1200+ USD..... that's hell of a lot for a laptop CPU...

    Bro by the time you get the cpu it's just going to go higher, stop chatting about it here and buy it already, it's a good choice. I'll help you with the rest of you want once u get it in. Lmk!

    What site are you buying from?

    Knowing that the 9900ks is over $900+ now I really hope whatever seller you are buying from isn't about to rip you off. $666 is a weird number and only $66 more than the one I got from microcenter for $600 and that was when the 9900ks was still in stock all over 2+ months ago. But I wish the best.

    So far I didn't find a way for it to automatically be applied at startup. Maybe some scripting will do. I will look into this this weekend.
    Really happy that the video helped!
    Cheers!
