    I've it repasted with that artic paste and I don't even hit 80's with Intel xtu benchmark.

    While gaming I rarely surpass 62 degree under full graphic load.

    So I guess it isn't such a bad option.

    Same for me. Temps go a little higher during gaming but stays within reasonable levels (60-80). However, I have no doubt that the other pastes are far superior to this one during extreme loads.

    Is there a way to install TPM (Trusted Platform Module) on P650SA?

    Well in my experience, the paste lasts for 2-3 days and then temps are back to normal (pumps out)... I think many of us here can confirm it's good as useless in the long term!

    u cant install it as an aftermarket upgrade, it has to be installed on the motherboard as a factory option. u can check in the bios if u have a TPM chip installed or not.

    Hey guys, I've been experience a lot of frame rate issues with the P651SG(980M) and the P670SG(980M). Whenever running games the frame rate would just suddenly dip down to the low 20s then shoot back up to 60fps. Is it an issue with the power supply (180W) not providing enough power? I stress tested both systems using Furmark and Prime95 at the same time and it was drawing out 212W of power. Any way to order a 230W power supply direct from Clevo?

    I see that the competitors (Asus/MSI) use a 230W power brick with their 980M models. Possible oversight by Clevo? Thanks!

    Bit of an oversight, but not for stock usage. You should check if your GPU or CPU is throttling in games for some reason instead, probably around the time your FPS tanks.

    I'm using MSI Afterburner, which OSD settings should I enable to see when it throttles?

    I'll also point out that I do NOT have these issues with the P650SE (970M) which also uses a 180W Adapter.

    You could use MSI Afterburner. It is configurable to show clock speed and utilization. If you notice 20fps, you can see if all your CPU cores are maxed at 3.4GHz and if your 980M is at 1038 or 1127MHz and its memory is at 5000MHz as it should be

    And I got a my 4710hq + 970m running on only 180watt with no issues, but I guess the 980m just takes a lot more power or is it just because of OCing? What is the stock power usage like on yours?
