    You can also swap the first section of the cord (the kettle plug between the wall and the adapter) for your native version to drop the need for the travel adapter, but that's purely optional.

    Using a higher voltage than a component can handle would have killed something almost immediately. The point of the power supply is not only to take that hit (hopefully in an internal fuse) instead of the expensive laptop, but also to filter imperfections in the input electrical power source such as the square wave signal from a cheap inverter (e.g. for a car 12V cigarette socket) that degrades sensitive components

    Well certainly double the voltage would cause the manic smoke to escape, usually you can get away with +/- 5% (maybe 10% on higher quality parts) and it does act as the first stage of filtering and protection. The input VRMs are the second stage of this.

    BIOS, Throttlestop or XTU.
    Core offset voltage. Set it as large negative as you can without causing bluescreen crashes. Start with -100mV and decrease by 10mV at a time

    -155mV reduces a full avx load on this cpu at 4.0ghz from about ~75W to ~55W

    All chips are different in what voltage/frequency they can handle.

    I don't see an option to change the color of the lid light, and its stuck on green. I downloaded the control center from the hotkey driver on the sager site. any help is much appreciated. also the colors don't match the backlight color selected on that app

    Its a little separate selection wheel that you bring up in the light setup area.
