    Tried my CPU undervolt to the limit today.
    I earlier had successful tests at -100mV, and left it there.
    Today, I tested further, and cinebench r15 succeeded up and including till -165mV. At -170mV right after it finished I got a bluscreen.
    So now did put it on -150mV (just to leave a margin of error). Did some extensive tests, and it looks fine at this value. Will leave it there.
    Temperatures of the CPU dropped another 5 degrees extra

    This motivated me quite a lot. Will try to push the undervolt of my GPU also to its limits now.

    I just got the 780w PSU from Eurocom. It works perfect. They had to add a duel spliter, the length of the cable from the splitter to psu is about 4ft and the length from both adapters from splitter to laptop is about 6ft.

    They are pretty long, I am going to get some black velcro cable ties and have then tied together all the way down to the splitter.

    I have no performance issues and do not get any warnings from the system.

    The quality of the PSU is very nice and love the LCD. Sorry for brief write up but its Friday and have plans.

    Stayed about the same, it increased marginally. I think it might be within margin of error. we speak about a 0.01% increase

    Stock timespy result when I first got my replacement laptop:
    https://www.3dmark.com/spy/6938517

    Previous Timespy result: CPU undervolt of -100 mv (downvolt to 1.1V) + GPU downvolt to 862 (an overclock of +135Mhz at that voltage, reaching a max frequency of 1845, this is a potential performance loss, but in got significant better temps) :
    https://www.3dmark.com/3dm/35704090

    Last Timespy result: CPU undervolt of -150mv (downvolt to 1.05V) + GPU downvolt to 850 (an overclock of +150Mhz at that voltage, reaching a max frequency of 1845) :
    https://www.3dmark.com/3dm/35853278

    Don't know if these are within margin of error, or if I didn't run at correct fan profile on 1st stock attempt. But Nontheless. Very satisfied with the results. Will be running off my laptop using the last undervolt results. Hope everything will stay fine from now on with this laptop.
